Remote locking on 1996 jaguar xj6

I bought a 1996 3.2 jaguar xj6 sport.When I bought the car the remote alarm would both lock and open the car remotely.Now I can only open the car .I have to lock using the key.I have checked the remote itself the batteries seem OK.
I have checked the fuses all OK .The alarm is still working.The central locking switch on the car dashboard does not always work.The alarm beep is working (one beep to arm) (two beeps to unlock).Also the autolocking (when you drive away the car central locking automatically locks the car) is also not working but it was previously.

    I own a Jaguar XJ 3.2 V8 from 2000. Great car, but I've had problems with remote locking since a couple of weeks. The dealer reprogrammed both remotes and the've put in new batteries. Worked for 1 or 2 days and then one of the remotes stopped working again. The other one worked for one more day and then stopped also. You have to push the button 10 times to make it work one time. Very annoying. It might be a problem of the receiver that's located in the trunk. Do you have any answers to your probleme yet?

Your key FOB is bad and needs to be replaced. The auto locking could be a reset. has the car had the battery disconnected? If so, it will take about 70 miles of driving for it to reset.

It sounds like the module to the alarm in the car is going bad. the sensor that detects for jags is the tied into the dash speedometer so this will need to be swapped out by the dealer only. the module will also need reprogrammed and rechecked after the reprogramming.

SOURCE: Dashboard lights

Check the dimmer switch, they are known to fail. Play around with the knob by turning is and you should get your lights back, if not remove the steering column covers and spray electrical cleaner in the dimmer switch and just work it in. Last resort replace the dimmer switch.

SOURCE: 1994 Jaguar xj6 battery loses all power after

you have a battery power drain.  Remove one fuse at a time until you find which circuit it's in.  This will take a while but it will find the problem and it's free.

How to disable alarm on 95 jaguar xj6


Your Car is equipped with an Electronic Security System. If you disable it (which most probably you can not), you will bet on security of your car. If you still want to disable it, you should contact your Dealer or Authorized Service Station with Purchase Bill. If possible, they'll change locking system to old one.

lock with key,electric door lock button,or remote and alarm will set. to disarm you have to use the key or remote to open it.the reason it woulnt disarm from drivers door is either the door lock cylinder switch is broken or the wire to it in the rubber boot that connects the door and the body is broken.
the remotes are cheap and programing is easy,procedure in owners manuel something like lock drive door with elkect. lock switch with door open then push and hold unlock untill doors unlock then turn key off.you may have to fix that drive door lock cyl.switch first though mabee not dont know for sure

How do you unlock the car door of 1996 jaguar xj6 if the battery is dead? tried opening with the key manually; lock does not pop all the way up; only partially; therefore it remains locked


Please consider the following...
15 year old car.
Normally uses remote unlock (key remains unused).

Possible solution, open keyhole cover by particially inserting key. Place WD-40 or other silicone spray lube in the key hole (lots). Operate the key several times... eventually, it will clean the unused parts and open the door.
