I just checked. The X300 Valet switch has exactly the same plug, so is an ideal use for the 94MY XJ40. Lucky!
Why yours is not working? Usual variables of failed solenoid, wiring, relay or switch?
When I press my switch, I here a relay click in the boot (have not fitted the solenoid yet).

Hmmmm....
Never seen this issue before. But anything is possible.
Effectively the rear lock system had been completely/permanently disabled.

So it’s not going to be quite so simple now the lock barrel has an issue.

I think it’s the black box relay near the electric aerial, though I can’t press the button and check the boot at the same time at the moment.



I now have working central locking and remote release for the boot! Hurray.
Only thing left on the electrical side of things, is one intermittent door ajar switch now.....

Everything back in place again, and fully working central locking. Plus the upgrade (back to what it should be!), remote release.
Satisfying repair.

I even managed to get the remote fob working at a further range than next to the car, but making a better contact for the battery. The battery was full/ over 12v. I know they don’t have a huge range but previously it was only working when stood next to the car, now it works as normal.

It’s going to be one of these two. This is where the relay clicking comes from.

Edit- It’s clearly written on the black relay “remote boot release”. I only just noticed.

Never really noticed it before - or maybe it is just a trick of the light - but is the coloured panel just above the rear bumper on your car 'sloping' from the bottom edge of the tail-lights down to the bumper? If so, this is different to that on my Daimler in that, on mine, it is vertical.

Nice little update!! I can see that I am going to have to bring mine over to you for you to figure out how in hell I can ever get MY boot lock to work on the key. It never has worked since I have had the car!!!

CT 8-)

PS - AND I really MUST collect that diff sometime too!!!!!!!! :shock: :shock:
