SOURCE: I need the radio code

As an anti-theft deterrent, Jaguar began installing radios at the end of the Series III era which required the input of a security code to enable the radio to function. While coded radios are a pain, our experience is that they have drastically reduced the radio theft rates in major cities like Atlanta.
When cars with coded radios were first sold, the owner received a pair of plastic cards, about the size of regular credit cards, listing the radio code. When used Jags trade hands, these cards are forgotten and usually are not passed on with the car. And then when the battery dies and is replaced, the radio insists upon being recoded before it will work again.
One tip is that the dealer technicians frequently would write the radio code under the hood of the car in marker. There are also reports that the radio code was on a paper label which was stuck to the underside of the hood when the radio was installed. So if you do not have your code, it is a good idea to look under the hood for the paper label or for a hand-written four or five digit number. You may get lucky; we have known owners who found their radio code in this manner.
To recode the radio once you have the code, turn the car’s ignition on and then turn the radio on until the word "code" is displayed on the radio faceplate. Enter the radio code slowly and deliberately, firmly pushing on each button. If you have entered the correct code, after the last numeral is entered the radio will beep and then begin to play on the last station selected. If the radio has been uncoded for a long time, or if power has been removed from the radio for a long time, sometimes you will be unable to enter what you know is the correct radio code. In these cases, leave the radio powered, with "code" displaying, for an hour or so and then try to reenter the code. The code will usually take after doing this.
It is not possible to guess at the radio code and to just keep trying combinations of numbers until stumbling on the correct code. The radio will accept only three coding attempts before it locks up for an hour. Then you have three more attempts before it locks up for eight hours, then three more tries before it locks up for 24 hours, and so on. The times indicated may not be accurate, but the process is correct as described.
If you cannot locate your radio code, either from the previous owner or from the car itself, the only way to get the security code is to pull the radio to retrieve the radio’s serial number and to request the code from your friendly Jaguar dealer. All dealers have the ability to retrieve these codes, although they will vary in their willingness to do so for individual owners.

SOURCE: 1993 XJ6: how do you remove the 1993 jaguar xj6 radio?...

You pretty much have to start at the ashtray and work forward making note of what you are taking out as you go. Remove the knobs of course, retaining screws that would be in place as keepers as well. As you get ready to remove the ski slope, there will be keeper screws in place with plastic loops that will break if you are not careful and 2 plastic wingnuts roughly where the ashtray meets the ski slope but underneath and out of sight unless you are looking for them. Once the ski slope is out of the way, its pretty straightforward but there are a lot of wires with terminals that are unique to the radio and jags......you can probably splice things if you need to.....but there are a lot of splices to do and then fitting things back will get more cramped and difficult.

Need radio unlock code for my 1994 jagaur xjs. Battery died, and now my radio is asking for code.


You will need to contact any Jaguar dealer service department (Preferably the one it was originally sold from) & give them the last 8 digits of the serial # & they can get you the code. If it is not the original radio for that car the radio will need to be removed to get the serial # off the radio.
They shouldn't charge you for this. If they try to call another dealer, you can call any dealer in the country for this.

Hope this helps

Need radio code for 1993 xjs


the only way to retrieve this code is to call the dealer(they may have you come in) and prove ownership with registration and VIN and they will give you the radio code and process to reset. if you still have the owners manual, many people write the code somewhere in it just in case.

Im trying to remove the factory radio and install a new one


First you need to gently pry off the wood grain cover around the gear shift. Then you'll see the the two screws on either side at the bottom holding the faceplate around the radio. These should be the only two screws. Before I discovered this, I had tried to pry it off starting at the top. I found it was held on by plastic clips until I got to the very bottom, and said WTF? Then I found a picture, and said Oh duh :)

To remove the radio: Remove the ashtray by raising the armrest cover and removing the two screws at the rear of the ashtray. Slide the ashtray back and then lift it out. Be careful of the two front tabs, as you don't want to break them. Reach below the wood console, where the ashtray front tabs were inserted. Loosen and remove the two wing nuts. With a small, long flat bladed screwdriver, pry out the leather shifter surround. The leather shifter surround has a center chrome retaining ring, the leather surround, and then finally a black plastic surround. The chrome retaining ring has 3-4 tabs which are locked in below the leather surround. It depends on the year of the Jaguar. Probably the 95 has three, but maybe four. They should be at the front and rear of the trim piece (2 front and 1 back, or 2 front and two back) but I've seen then on the sides. The point is, you have to be careful with the screwdriver and find the tabs. The screwdriver should be slid between the leather and the retainer. Pull upwards on the retainer gently, and as you loosen the tabs, it will come out. Remove the leather surround. Once the chrome retainer has been removed, it should be easy to work it out of the console. Loosen the black trim ring gently as it has tabs as well, but they are visible once the leather trim has been removed. Lift it upwards out of the wood trim and pull it to the side out of the way. You don't need to disconnect the wires, just lay the black trim to the side. Lift the rear of the wood console trim and gently, gently slide it back and up. It will try to hang on the leather console, and can be difficult. Patience is important, as the walnut on the ski slope cracks easy (really easy). Once the wood console trim (ski slope) is removed, you should have a row of screws up the side of the center control panel, where the radio and AC controls are. There are four to six on each side, depending on what Jaguar used at the time, as the 95 cars mechanically are somewhat of a blend of the XJ40 and the XJ300. Remove these screws, and note any spacers that were behind them. These spacers get lost quickly, and cause the ski slope to sit awkwardly on the console. The radio will slide forwards once these screws are removed. Remove the radio harness and the antenna lead. As the books say, assembly is reverse of removal.
