Range of key fobs this one has to be reprogrammed by dealer.and needs to be reprogrammed..
there is some trick like turning key on and off (just to power, not engine on) three times and than pushing the unlock button on teh fob, that should reprogram it.

Hi
The central locking system is controlled by the ecu, simply a common fault, disconnect the passenger door terminal to the lock and see what happens if the other doors lock normally then this confirms that there could be a fault in the wiring loom or relay if the doors unlock after locking then its a ecu problem. See an auto electrician
Regarding the water consunption what colour is the oil hope its not cream, radiator cap may need replacing as it could be blowing the water out, if the reseviour bottle is always full then this confirms it..Hope this helps you out

    try to check your door lock/car alarm fuse if still good. 
    if it's still working you have to check the driver seat door if there was no parts of your power door broken

The battery needs to be replaced in the remote and when you unlock it from the key it should disarm the alarm if it doesn't you need to talk to a dealer the chip in the key might be damaged

How do I reprogram s type jaguar key fob year 2002 jag


Seperate key fobs only can be programmed in the following way.

Turn ignition on/off 8 x times (allow all functions to stabilise) after the 9th on - press a button on both remote fobs. then turn ign. off. use good remote to lock and then try new remote to unlock/lock. sometimes it works first time - sometimes you have to repeat actions. good luck.

How to unlock truck jaguar stype when no power


The button or the fob will not work with low or no battery power - you need to use the key. There is a keyhole on the boot under the trim or under by the reg. plate lights according to what facelift model you have.
good luck.

Jag S-Type -intermitent fault where the remote fob does not work


This does not sound like a fob fault - but a locking control module fault , either in the hardware or software of the unit. Get it checked at a Jaguar dealers. When unlocking using the key - as soon as the door is opened you should hear a chime sounding inside the car - this is a timer counting down to sounding the alarm. If you put your key in the ignition as soon as you open the door the alarm should not go off and the chime should stop. If it does not this again points to a fault in the locking controller.
hope this helps - good luck.
