    I have the same problem with my 2001 S-type 3.0. I've changed both parts of the ignition switch (cylinder and electrical) it started, then would not shut off! Fuse 18 under the hood had to be pulled to turn the igntion off! New battery in January. Took it to another shop and now it won't start, they say the computer for the security system is malfunctioning, will be towed to the dealer tomorrow.

SOURCE: 2000 Jaguar S-Type Battery

I had to change the battery in my 1999 S-Type, you will need the radio code, I also needed to reprogramme the board computer which is easy if you have your manual at hand, also the car might act strangely for a while, but this is explained in your users manual, nothing to worry about.

Hope this helps.

Yes the key needs to be reprogramed to the car. Unfortunately that will have to be done by the dealer. Make sure that you have plenty of proof that you are the owner. They will reprogram it but you will not take posession of the car until you prove it is yours.

SOURCE: my jaguar x-type 04, remote lock does not work,

Hi,

I have a similar problem in my x type. Although if I press unlock button on the key first and then use the metalic key to unlock it dissables the alarm.

Also according to the manual if you unlock by the metalic key the car starts a beeping sound its I think 15-20 second timer within which you should put the key and start the ignition (don't need to start the engin) this will dissarm the alarm if not the alarm will go off in 15-20 second.

Hope this information is of any use, am trying to get hold of Jaguar dealers to fix this issue. If you come accross any solution please do let me know too

Security light stays on (constant) while truck is in use, no obvious problems though. What is going on


when you lock your vehicle with the remote it engages the alarm and the red light will flash fast for about 15 seconds. Then it will start flashing very slowly to show the system is armed. To disarm it you need to open the door with the remote or put the fob in the ignition. If you use the key to open the door and alarm is on it will go off. Only way I know of to make it quit honking and flashing lights is to hit unlock button or insert for into ignition.
I would sit in the vehicle and arm the lock with the remote and watch to light for about 1 minute to see if it does flash fast first then slowly. If it does it is working fine. If it doesn't then take it in and have dealer look at it.

How can desactivate my alarm in my 99 montero?


Try pressing the lock button on your door then close the door then use your key to get back in, not the remote. If that doesn't work then close all doors,turn your key 1/4 towards ignition,press and hold the flashing red alarm light for 5 seconds and this should disarm the system and allow you to start the vehicle.

Not knowing exactly which vehicle you have this is all I can think of. Hope it helps.

Some times when I go to start the engine if the red light on the dash board blinks fast the car will not start some times it takes 20 minutes to 50 minutes to start if the red light is not flashing then it...


This would appear to be a immobiliser fault? Try a manual start - do not use fob, open door with key and immediately put the key in ignition and start the car. Using this method - when you open the door you will hear a chime this is counting down to starting the alarm. This method can sometimes get around a fob/immobiliser fault. If this makes no difference then you need to get the car checked at a Jaguar dealers for the security system. - good luck.

you may have a bad door switch, theres a switch on the drivers door lock, when door is unlocked with fob or key the switch is activeated to shut alarm down,the lock moves to hit switch with key or fob,so if the switch is bad it will not shut down alarm, i would start there,door panel has to be remove,then latch has to be remove to get to switch, then test with a meter see if it opens and closes the connection, hope this helps.

2004 xtype jaguar key fob suddenly stopped working car locked and alarmed if i use key in the door will the alarm go off if so how do i stop it


Your key fob needs reprogramming, and yes the alarm will go off when you open the door, but you have enough time to put the key in the ignition which will prevent the alarm sounding. Car is usable until you get the fob sorted by locking and unlocking using the key.
