Try this .. it MIGHT work.
Clean carefully the battery contacts and check there is no large build up of dirt around and on the small printed circuit. Insert new battery and then try a manual reprogram by following these instructions which work for the older style seperate key fobs - never tried it with new switchblade type keys, which I am assuming this is?
Turn on/off ignition 8 x times allowing all functions to settle each time. on the 9th on press a buttom on each remote and then switch off ign. Use the good key to lock the car then try the new key to unlock. sometimes it works first time - sometimes it takes a couple of tries - hope it works for you.

The switchblade key would need to be compatable with your ignition switch barrel. Only normally available from jag dealers who check the Jag owners register before supplying you a replacement.
The older type seperate fobs could be programmed by switching the ignition on and off 8 times (allowing all functions to settle) and on the 9th switch on - press a button on each fob and then switch off. to test use a good fob to lock the car then try the reprogammed fob to unlock/lock. Sometimes this works first time - sometimes needs a couple of tries.

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.

If its a new key fob the only way you can program it is this the factory scan tool, u'll have to take it to a dealership for them to do this and they will charge you .5 hrs for labor.only x-types can be programmed without the jaguar software. Im guessing it will cost you between 40 and 50 bucks to have them program it.
