Have a look on jaguarforums co uk
I found this:
Hope this helps anyone who has forgotten their code for their x type sound system. It may work on s type as well but I don't know anyone who has got one to try. Contacted Hartwell in Shrewsbury for the code for my radio as I was disconnecting the battery to change the water pump (another story). They we very helpful and charge me £20 over the phone so they could access their Jaguar computer system and give me a code according to the car reg. plate. Job done I thought - got on and did the job. Went to enter the code... Didn't work! Tried it 3 times and it locked me out for 30 minutes. Phoned Hartwell's back and they'd closed for the day!

Did some research on the internet and if you've got the same problem try this....

Enter any code 3 times so that the display shows "PLEASE WAIT"

Simultaneously press ">>" "PTY" "A.MEM" should only take 2 or 3 seconds and the radio turns on.

Hope this helps and saves some one some money!!

SOURCE: no code for jag x type radio

You must go in person to the dealer to get a radio code. If you bring the car, and the VIN number , their service department can look up your code.

This prevents theives from reselling or reusing stolen radios!

SOURCE: my x type jag starts without a problem but when it gets warm it cuts out and will not start again till the engine cools a little

When it cuts out is your temperature guage in the hot zone? If it is you have a over heating problem. Change the thermostat.

Radio does not work will not prompt security code

Disconnection and/or draining of the battery is interpreted by your Jag as a stolen radio so you have to go back to the beginning and reenter the radio code. The CD player problem may go away once the radio is properly identified.

I have a 54 plate jag xtype and the nsf headlight bulb keeps blowing, the most recent one lasted just 3 days, the one before lasted only 4 months. is it a wiring problem or a jag problem?

my best guess on this would be that there is some undue vibration on that light assembly or some moisture getting in ... do you change both bulbs at the same time? you may want to change the other bulb at the same time as this one just to see if this solves your probelm. That should be standard practice on all cars and not just jags ... I have a passion for Jags.

Entering radio code

You may have attempted to get the code too many times try re-unhooking the battery and give it thirty minutes or so hook it back up and see if it changes,,, I had a similar issue with my radio.

Radio code

If you have tried a few times before NOT entering the right code or making error when entering code. This radio will lock you out, here is what you do disconnect battery cable for 60 seconds (positive cable) or disconnect radio fuse. Then re-enter code make sure that you are pressing firmly on number and make sure that you enter correctly.(POWER ON RADIO SHOULD BE IN ON POSITION WHEN DOING THIS) If this doesn't work then you will need to go to HOnda and fora fee they will be able to get code. Good Luck and thanks for using FIX YA.

Code for radio

I have the same exact car and when I had to replace my battery I had to reset radio code also. Fortunately, I have the code card, but I didn't know that at first and I typed in a random code, and then it kind of "froze" it saying Searching for code or something to that sort. I called a Jag 800 number (any Jag 800 should be fine) and they told me the steps and my code, you will probably need a VIN #.
