About Bootlid Tailgate Open Switchs
The Jaguar bootlid tailgate open switches can vary depending on which vehicle they’re located upon. Some are manually operated by pushing a button on or near the tailgate in order to open it. On some vehicles however, there is an electric switch that is situated in the front of the vehicle - usually on the driverside - which is used to open the vehicle’s boot or tailgate without having to get out of the vehicle and open the boot manually. There are also types of vehicle or models that use both the manual bootlid and tailgate opening method and the electrical version, as well as a key operation to open the boot.
Issues with the Jaguar bootlid tailgate open switch may mean that you are unable to open the boot. This could be caused by an electrical fault as a result of wear and tear. Some vehicles however, have the opposite problem in that the bootlid or tailgate won’t close or opens whilst the vehicle is moving. This is obviously a security issue, but can also create a dangerous situation if the boot opens whilst the vehicle is in motion, as luggage stored in the boot can make its way into the path of following traffic.
- The Jaguar XJ has that luxurious leather interior, but did you know that all of that leather comes very specifically from Scottish Angus Bulls? Bulls don't get stretch marks, and they don't get bitten much by mosquitoes either. Belly and neck skin becomes the dash and door finish, while the backbone and the rump are used for the seats.
- Steve McQueen was a huge fan of the Jaguar XKSS and even found himself with two driving bans because of his passion for driving fast. He was one of the few people to ever drive an XKSS because only 16 were ever made! McQueen did eventually sell his car, but regretted it immediately and paid more to get it back. The car is now owned by US TV host Jay Leno.
- The 24 Hours of Le Mans, one of the most gruelling and famous race events in the world, has been won by Jaguar an astonishing seven times. Their first victory was back in 1951.
- Talk about testing your car! Jaguars are put through a very rigorous climate test, where they are first tested in -40 degrees for twelve hours. Once that's done, the cars are then sprayed with water while standing in a 0-degree wind tunnel. That's why they cope so well with British weather.
- Jaguar was bought out by Ford in 1990, but they didn't really capitalise on the investment. Eventually, Ford sold Jaguar to the current owners, the Indian company Tata Motors.
