SOURCE: Timing chain on 2000 Jaguar
The jaguar v8 has 4 timing chains located on the front of the engine behind the aluminum timing cover.
You can inspect them by remove the valve covers but to replace them you need special factory tools to set the vehicle up on TDC.
The secondary timing chain tensioners are a common failure on this vehicle which will cause the chain to break.
You can replace the tensioners to prevent this failure just by removing the valve covers and exhaust sprocket, but if this is not the issue the chains should be lifetime, not like a timing belt which is required to be replaced by time and mileage.

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.
