SOURCE: jaguar xk8 auto, won't come out of park

your brake switch, the one that activates rear brake lights has probably failed. Press brakes, have someone see if brake lights turn on, if no then it is a brake light switch problem.

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

Jaguar XK8 Remote Locking problem


check your lock relays located in the interior fuse panel. Sometimes the actual connections to the fuse block can come lose and the relays wont work properly. My 2000 silverado did the same thing till i bent the pins on the relay for a tighter fit.
