Question about 1988 Jaguar XJ6
I just purchased the same car two weeks ago which contained the original Drivers and Service Handbooks.
Two keys should be supplied with the vehicle. The larger headed key operates the ignition and doors, and the smaller headed one is for the glovebox and the luggage compartment (trunk). These keys originally came with id numbers on self-adhesive labels. For security reasons, the numbers were not marked on the keys or locks.
So save yourself alot of money and don't listen to ready2helpu's so called "solution". You don't have to change your ignition. You need to try and locate the id number for you trunk key. Maybe you can go to a Jaguar dealer with the VIN of your car and maybe they can find the number for you. I was lucky that the Handbooks came with the car because the key id numbers were recorded in the Service one. Good luck.

I would have the ignition itself replaced. These go out all the time and will leave you stranded. Get a new ignition keyed to your current key and you won't have to do programming. A locksmith can do this for you. Do it soon though before it stops turning.
