Key won't turn in the ignition

I used my truck earlier-no problem. Later, unlocked it using the keyfob,
put in the key and it won't turn. Tried wiggling the stearing wheel, checked the thing that puts it in gear, read the manual. Is my ignition shot? Help!

Yeah, the Fords are known for having to really crank on the steering wheel sometimes to get the key to turn, other than that......

X type 2003 my key will not work when using the push buttons tried changing battery but nothing happens only way is manualy then I have to get in the car and turn engine on to disarm the alarm


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.

I had to put a new battery in my remote that I use to unlock the doors on my 2002 xtype Jaguar. Since changing the battery I can not get it to operate. How do I reset it?


http://www.bluejag.co.uk/X-Type-keyfob-reprogramming.php

copy/pasted from the above link..

"Programming or pairing a new remote Keyfob for the X Type is a very simple job that will cost a substantial amount if it is done by Jaguar. It's annoying but this may need to be done if your Keyfob battery has been allowed to go flat, or the car battery has been removed for any length of time.
Follow these steps exactly and you should have no problems, pairing old or replacement Keyfobs for your car.

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.

9.)Check operation of each Keyfob. "

Hope it works for you!

Hi i have a nissan terrano 2 extreme, i changed the battery in the key fob and it hasnt worked since how do i re-code the key fob please.


do you have the owners manual? Usually you have to turn the key back and forth a series of times. I know Ford has to be 10 times back and forth in less than 30 seconds. Then you aim the fob at the reciever on the dash. The owners manual should tell you. Ill give you a general nissan recode, im not sure if it will work for your Nissan.
. Place your key in the ignition and switch from the LOCK position to the ON position 6 times within 10 seconds ending with the key in the LOCK position
If done correctly the indicators should flash 2 times
2. Press and hold the UNLOCK button (black on P11) on your keyfob and while keeping it pressed then push the LOCK button (Red on P11) 3 times then release the UNLOCK button.
If done correctly the indicators should flash 2 times
3. To reprogram a further key/keyfob remove the key and put your second key in the ignition (or hold your fob close to the ignition barrel) leaving it in the LOCK position and repeat step 2.
Once done turn your ignition on and then back off to exit the coding procedure.
Test your keyfob(s) work ok. (do not leave your key in the car while doing this procedure incase you need to manually open the door with the key)

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.
