The switch must match the key code.

SOURCE: Immobiliser light flashing and car

Hello, do you know what the locksmith did to get the code on your key? Did anything else flash on the screen when the car would not start. My car is doing the same thing, and my Jaguar dealer is 200 miles away. My screen is showing [Engine Fault, Transmission Fault and DSC Fault]. Any help would be greatly appreciated..

SOURCE: My key wont turn the ignitionn barrel...

If it won't turn at all it may be a stearing lock issue, If you have a spare key try it. If the stearing lock is on give the stearing wheel a wiggle back and forth as you turn the key.

SOURCE: After replacing an ignition switch and unit in a 2003 jaguar x-type with a used one, will the car still need to be programmed by a dealer to be able to start the car?

Before spending lots of dosh i woudl try pairing my keys as follows:-

1.)I would recommended that you ensure all key fobs are fitted with new batteries. ( Click here to see battery replacement guide).
2.)Get in the car and close the drivers side door.
3.)Put the key into the ignition and turn to position I.
4.)Wait 5 seconds
5.)Turn the key quickly to position II then back to I four times.
6.)You should hear a single chime.
7.)Remove the Key
8.)For each Keyfob in rapid succesion. Press any single button on the keyfob you wish to pair, you should hear a chime as each Keyfob is paired with the security system. After the chime do the next Keyfob.
9.)Check operation of each Keyfob.

SOURCE: 1994 jaguar ignition coil...my car turns over but sometimes wont start. We put a tester on the fuel pump to see if that was it, but when it didn't start the pressure was at 44lbs so it was working

Hi Kenny, The fuel pressure is on the low side. I would also check the crank and cam pickup sensors. Another point of interest should be the temperature sender unit that sends to the computer. I would suspect the igniter before the ignition coil. regards John

2003 Ford Focus PATS light not blinking and car won't start


I don't believe there is a problem either.
Under normal conditions the security light should come on then go off if the correct key is being used.
The problem could be the key switch or the neutral safety switch if it is an automatic trans. There are other possible causes.

You may be right. Sometimes a starter test doesn't reveal everything. But before you pull the starter, do this quick test. It should confirm if problem is the starter or the ignition switch. When the car won't crank over, pull the small wire off the starter solenoid (on the starter), and check if it has power when key is held in crank position. You need a helper to hold the key in crank. If the wire has power (use a testlight or meter to check for power), and the starter won't crank, pull the starter off for testing or replacement. But if there is no power on the wire when key is held in crank, then it confirms that power is not being transmitted from the switch to the starter. Not to say for sure it is the switch, could also be another part in the path from switch to solenoid (like the neutral safety switch). But more common for the ignition switch to go out first. Either replace the switch or continue testing your start circuit. Post back with results or for further help. Good luck.

Cranks and then goes dead


First check your fuel pressure it should be 41-47 psi with key on and engine off if its below 32 psi replace the fuel pump and filter.If fuel pump checks out to be good then take ignition switch out and check for burned ignition switch wires and worn ignition key tumblers and ignition lock cylinder.These cars are known for faulty ignition switches and ignition lock cylinders.Ignition switch gets to hot then it won't start until it cools off.

It sounds like a fault in the starter circuit. It could be a defective neutral safety switch, starter solenoid, or possible a defective ignition switch but I doubt it. Can you hear the starter solenoid??? I'm willing to bet the problem is either with starter relay, neutral safety switch, or starter solenoid.

It sounds like your ignition tumbler is going back or your ignition switch. Hopefully this helps you out and gives you a place to start looking. If you have any other questions please feel free to ask. Good luck.

hi,it maybe a good idea to remove the steering collum covers to visually inspect it can be the ignition bolt just being loose or the steering lock or ignition it self is on its way out.
