Question about 2006 Jaguar S-Type
Battery died, changed it and put new batteries in both keyfobs. Tried various solutions involving flashing of headlights, pressing of central locking sequences etc but nothing works. The boot still opens by the keyfob and occasionally it will central lock and open but only once in a blue moon. Any suggestions other than taking it into Jaguar dealerships as it would probably be cheaper to fit a thatcham or other approved system than pay for a remap??
Jag dealership charge to re set the fob but the first time since 1999. Not that expensive considering.

This is from the factory service manual of your car:
There is no onboard programming procedure for this vehicle. This vehicle requires special equipment be connected to the vehicle to program the keyless remote. Translation you need the dealer to do this.

You do not have a choice, you must go to a dealership. They have a computer for this prupose and it does not cost much. I usually drive into the service drive through and the shop foreman does this for me in about 5-10 min. and the charge is minimal. The keys are what cost a small fortune.
