I would have someone check the thermal limiter normally on the passanger side down under the glovebox because if this is shorted out it can cause this problem if you continue to have this problem with the speedo cable it is normally the cable going to the wheel or the transmission itself where the gears are worn down and it would cause this problem

To reprogram my remote for on my Jaguar X-Type does the ignition or the engine get turned on 8 times?

I am going to save you $400 here buddy. First make sure that the battery in you remote is good. Now here is Jaguars big secret, place key in ignition. Turn to position 1, now turn key up to position 2, then turn key back to 1, repeat this 4 times and you will here a ding sound. There you have it your remote is programed to your Jaguar. You must be fluid with it dont go to fast but unless its done perfectly it will not work. The ding sound is what lets you know it has worked. I had a 2002 x-type and when I bought it , it only came with 1 key hub which of course wasnt programed so I took to Jag and thats when they hit me with this crazy amount. They said $150 to test if your remote even works if it does the for another $150 they would program it for you. If your remote is bad though its $150 to test, $150 for a new key hub, and $150 to program it. And FYI we are not talking about a new key oh no. The key splits into 2 pieces $150 only gets you the remote side which is what you need to use yoyr keyless entry and trunk........ Dont ever loose the whole key bro $650 Be aptient until you find your rythem follow the steps exsactly Key in ignition pos 1 then pos 2 and repeat 3 more times giving you a total of 4 cycles through the process once you hear the ding soynd your good. You might have to repeat every once in a while but dont get yourself discouraged if your remote is already programed to you car then the process unprograms it and the process will have to be repeated. It works brother if you do it right. Good luck ;)

Oil level light stays on

get in your truck, insert your key in the ignition, turn it to on, but do not start the truck. once you have the

ignition on on press the pedal 5 to 7 times until you hear a ding sound. when it dings oil life reset will

show up on the dashboard. once that happens you can start up your truck and it will not show the oil

light. until the next oil change is due. good luck!

Fan works only on the 5 position

this sounds like a bad heater fan resistor, it is under glovebox. take off cover if need be. resistor is beside fan motor. remove the wiring, then the screws that hold it in, then pull the resistor out.

Climate contrl fan

I had the same problem twice. The dealer said it was a recall for a bad fan control switch. It's located under the glovebox near the center of the dash and held in by two screws. Last time i had to replace the part was about 34.00 and did it myself. The cover under the glovebox pops out and you can see the part. They had problems with them burning out and only work on high after that happens.

Air condition

Check the following fuses:
10 amp GAUGE under the dash, and the 40 amp HEATER under the hood.
If both fuses are good, I suspect that you may either have a bad fan switch or a bad heater fan motor. The switches are rare to fail, I would suspect the heater motor first. Please try this: Turn the key on; turn the fan switch to high. Look under & behind the glovebox, for the bottom of the heater fan motor. Round thing with 3 screws holding it to the heater box. Using a small hammer, or something that you can tap with, tap on the bottom of the heater fan motor. You just may jar the motor enough to make it run. If it comes back on, you may need to replace it at some point in the near future. Worked for me quite a few times. Try that, repost to me what happens. Hope this helps.
