I would expect that the battery is dead; however, instead of jump starting the car, it is far easier on your car's charging system to place a battery charger on it for about 6 hours then start the car. Otherwise, the alternator tries to charge the dead battery at a wide open rate and it can damage your alternator. Mark

Jaguar XK 8 2002 model How do you release trunk with dead battery and the keyhole in the xk8 badge does not work?

If you own a Jaguar with the battery in the trunk and it is normally opened by a button or switch inside the car but the battery is dead...well open the hood, pull another car or just a battery up to it. With a jumper cable hook the negitive battery terminal from the battery to a solid metal part of the engine assembly...then with a smaller jumper wire hooked to positive battery terminal hook the other end to the large post coming out of the you might want to hook up the small jumper wire to the large post coming out of the rear of the alternator first... because if you touch it to any part that's metal it will doing this you will send power into the electrial system and you can now use the switch to open the trunk....
