Check the lever if any that opens the boot might not have gone down to its normal position. put to normal position and try.

SOURCE: 1997 XK8 JAGUAR the BOOT WILL NOT CLOSE, HOW CAN I FIX IT?

this is an electrical part and most probably needs to be replaced , but if it does not go into the lock it self ( Lock is closed while boot is open ) , you need to open manually with a screw driver and then close your boot

SOURCE: my convertible top will not close lock and slow to come up

This is a VERY common problem with these xk convertibles. The most common is the fluid thickens up and the motor has trouble moving the top up and down. What you have to do is perform a convertible fluid flush, which is a pretty difficult task. Jaguar has updated fluid for this flush but it cost like 90 buck a quart, luckily you only need one but its pretty labor intensive. If your look at a dealership to perform this repair is pretty expensive.

SOURCE: jaguar XK8 PROBLEM BOOT WON'T CLOSE

In the trunk on the right side behind the carpet is the hyrdaulic unit. There is a T fitting on it. Turn the T fitting counterclockwise to release pressure. Tighten it back up and try the top again. I have had this work for me several times.

Door locks on 2005 Jag xk8 not working. Cant close doors


It could need fault codes erasing and defaults restoring with diagnostic equipment but the symptom you describe could equally be caused by the internal switch in one of the door catches that tells the brain the doors are closed.
If the brain doesn't receive a door closed signal from each door and the boot lid it will not allow the central door locking to operate.

I suggest you check the owner's handbook for user information and then reassure yourself all the doors are closing and correctly adjusted.
This is something freezing weather can affect.

97 XK8 top has no power. Top is up, but not


to latch manually you have a allen key located on the pump in the boot rh side, remove the little plug on the screen closing panel and use the key to latch the mechanism. if the roof top operation is poor/ sluggish it needs the roof/top hydraulic system flushing and new pentosyl fluid using in the system the old type/origional fluid can turn to a jelly like substance.

Cold morning driver door lock freeze


make sure the door handle on the outside has returned to normal position, sometimes the cold will make them stick. The door opens but the outside handle sticks open and the door won't latch. Hope this helps.

Jaguar XK8 Remote Locking problem


check your lock relays located in the interior fuse panel. Sometimes the actual connections to the fuse block can come lose and the relays wont work properly. My 2000 silverado did the same thing till i bent the pins on the relay for a tighter fit.
hope this helps
