You do not have a choice, you must go to a dealership. They have a computer for this prupose and it does not cost much. I usually drive into the service drive through and the shop foreman does this for me in about 5-10 min. and the charge is minimal. The keys are what cost a small fortune.

May be keyfob needs reprogramming.

Keyfob remote reprogramming is not very difficult but on some cases it can be done by dealer service tools.

If the remote s faulty then key fob will not get programmed.

Insert the key in ignition. Turn the key to on position, and cycle the key three times off-on-off-on-off-on. Then with the key fob remote select your remote and then try to operate the vehicle with remote.

These are just the basic procedure, but sometimes it will not help.

On that case dealer is the only option.

After replacing an ignition switch and unit in a 2003 jaguar x-type with a used one, will the car still need to be programmed by a dealer to be able to start the car?


Before spending lots of dosh i woudl try pairing my keys as follows:-

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.

Once you program this key fob the other one will not work.The reason is when you program the fobs how ever many you have,you have to program them all at the same time.So if you only program one fob only that fob will work the other one will loose it`s program.You have to take it to the dealership to program the fob.Hope this helps.Good luck.

I have a 2001 olds alero, the car wont start and the security light is flashing


If the previous solution doesn't work, try this:

While the key is in "on" position and your security light is blinking, it is probably your "Passlock" security device acting up. Very common in these years for GM cars. To test if this is it, simply turn your key forward (to "on" position) until light stops blinking and eventually turns off (right around 10 minutes). Then, turn key back off, and then try to restart it. My Alero did this just a few months ago and I learned this trick as I was pricing out a new fuel pump. If this was your problem, I recommend taking it to a remote starter installer and have them by-pass the passlock system permanently. This should cost anywhere from $40-$100, but is much better than a new fuel pump and filter cost.
-note: I recommend not getting it by-passed until it happens a second time (which it may not), just don't forget the temporary fix!

Very viable. That's the first thing I would do, replace the key. If that solves the issue it only cost a few bucks. It's a common problem it happened on my '96 Cutlass.

Reprogramming jaguar x type key fob


Your key FOB is easily programmed by yourself without the need of computer, here is how: Push and hold the trip computer button on the left stalk, while holding the button turn the ignition ON and OFF several times untill you hear a confirmation tone from the glovebox area, when the tone is heard, release the button and remove the key from the ignition, immediately after push any button on the Key FOB and you'll hear another tone that confirms the programming.
