Thanks for sharing - hopefully I will not need to use these procedures. So far, my i-Pace is rock solid on driving and charging.
The frunk release knob screws onto a lengthy bolt. I am guessing maybe 10 rotations. You may have been expecting a quick release.I tried to through this , in the comfort of my driveway, before having to have to use it for real (or not).
I have localized the knob, with a hood icon on it, tried to turn it clockwise, counter clockwise, it does not seems to make any difference. It just turn, and turn, and turn.
What's missing ? How can I reveal the pull ?

Thank you most helpful , it would of course been a lot more helpful were there a manual that came with the carMight add something about emergency brake lock out when 12v aux battery is dead. I had to run a trickle charge to it, jumping didn’t work.
No paper manual? Download the Jaguar I-Guide from the app/play store. It's quite good.Thank you most helpful , it would of course been a lot more helpful were there a manual that came with the car
This must be my issue as releasing the cable does nothing — the beast won’t budge. Now to find the 12v to trickle charge….Might add something about emergency brake lock out when 12v aux battery is dead. I had to run a trickle charge to it, jumping didn’t work.
Started reviewing this for my expected tow tomorrow as my car got bricked by a bad software update. When you say you need a working 12v battery to release the rear wheels, do you mean a working 12v battery and a car computer capable of using said 12v to be operational enough to release the brake? My concern is that my car won't start, not because of a 12v issue, but the software won't let the car complete the boot cycle, so will I be able to get the rear wheels to release, or am I going to have to drag the car onto a flat bed kicking and screaming?The cable releases the park lock at the front but parking brake requires 12v to retract on the rear. A power pack for jump starting ICE, or other 12v source, will work long enough to release the PB with the switch.
Right on (as usual). I'd like to send you a bottle of whisky or whatever you might enjoy for your constant helpful tips! I really appreciate it.I confirmed this in the comfort of my garage.
Power up without foot on brake (which is as good as you can do), put foot on brake and pull out on the parking brake switch. You will hear the EPB operate if you have a door or window open.
Push the EPB switch to reapply the parking brake and you'll hear it operate again.
If someone has a bad 12V battery, attach a 12V jumper box or other 12V source if necessary to the starter battery to get 12V to the system.
(Oh, yeah. Take your foot off the brake before the tow truck driver starts to pull it on the truck. )
