Hey cheeriospapy,

Unfortunately the key you bought on-line is going to be no good, jaguar keys cannot be cut by any after-market company. When ever a customer comes into the dealership he has to give the vin number to the parts department. They then send an order to the company that cuts the keys specifically to the car. Thats why know one will be able to cut it.

They key also has to be programed to the car which the dealership charges .5 hrs worth of labor to do. So needless to say a replacement key is fairly expensive.

    im sorry you are unhappy with my response and that it isnt helpful shown by your rating, but being a jaguar tech for about 3 years, jaguar just doesnt off much outside of the dealership.

A little internet search will lead you to places like "triple c" for about $40 they will cut you a new key. I believe you can even send them a photo so they can see the code cuts.

    you will need to take your original and decide if it is a 6 cut tibbe key or an 8 cut. Triple C can do 8 cuts. the 6 cut keys require a bit more checking around. Get out your local yellow pages first and start calling to see who has the right machine. My 2002 jag has the 6 cut. Don't take it to the dealer unless you are desperate and have alot of time (sometimes weeks) to waste waiting on them.

Where can i get replacement key for x type jaguar 2003

The answer from predzy is right about the ebay blanks, but expect to pay thrue the nose for the cutting and programing services. FYI most hardware stores are incapable to do lazer cut keys without special equiptment. Be careful and shop arount for prices, avoid the dealership on this one!!!

2003 Jaguar S-Type, programming a key fob

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.

Lost my key to my jaguar 2003 x-type, where can i get a new one

the only place that will have the sort of equipment to cut you a new key (the key has to be cut according to the vin number of the car), is going to be the dealership. also the computer equipment needed to program the new key is most likely only avaliable at the dealer.
