How to turn off security on 02 jaguar so car will crank

No easy way of doing this and the ECUs on the pre 2004 jaguar are very complex. They are made by Denso Japan. There is one specialist in the US, you would have to remove the alarm (immobilizer) ECU and I think the main ECU and send it to them to recode. Alternatively you can take it to a main dealer with the full jaguar factory software and he should be able to do this (at a price).

Lost my key can i start if from the starter motor ?

Your car will no doubt have some sort of factory fited imobiliser so I think the answer to your question is NO!

You will have to contact a dealer and see if they can help or may be likely that the ingnition lock will have to be replaced and new keys spplied.
