Angry Dead Battery

My 2008 XK has a dead battery. Does anyone know how to jump the battery from under the hood, or anywhere else?

You must read the owner's manual, it will be safer and easier.

There should be a rubber covered positive terminal under the left rear wheel arch.

Alternatively if your number plate is large you may not realise that there is a key hole in the rear hatch and a hidden key inside your remote fob.
