2006 XJ8L - KEY FOB DOESN'T UNLOCK DOOR OR ACTIVATE LIGHTS. DOOR KEY WON'T TURN EITHER DIRECTION


Wow... sorry!

Sounds like you got the wrong car or KEYS...

ELSE...
you are looking at a DEALER/LOCK-SMITH issue...

Do not leave without having at least 3 keys...

If you have 2 working keys... you can add more keys... and introduce a new FOB yourself.

It is a FORD "style" PATS
(passive anti-heft system)

Lost set of keys, alarm was on car locked. Found spare key only, it will open door, alarm goes off, but the key won't start engine. It will turn in ignition, but dead! It's a Chevy HHR 2006! HELP


Close the doors. Lock the doors using the buttons on the key fob. Use the fob to again unlock the doors. The key should then work the ignition. If this will not work, you will have to tow your vehicle to the dealer and buy a new key and/or fob and have it programmed to the vehicle.

If the passkey is messed up, there will be a light on the dash that says security, or have a picture of a car with a lock thru it. If there is no light when the key is turned forward, then its NOT a passkey problem.

2006 Jag xj, passengers door cannot be opened either from inside or outside. The inside door handle is in a "half cocked" position and I have tried all I can think of with combinations of Key...


I would confer with your Jag dealer on this one. Removing the door panel with the door closed is a real problem and they may have an easy fix without risking damaging anything. From what you say it sounds like the normal door release mechanism is not engaged but that the lock is. All I can suggest is to wind the window down and to do a combination waggling the 'half cocked' internal release handle back and forth whilst at the same time physically unlocking the door lock and/or using the central locking fob; press the door into the door jam at the same time to take pressure off the frame catch.

" turn the key on engine off 8 times. the doors will lock and unlock. push one of the buttons on the key fob and the doors will lock and unlock. do this for each remote that you have. when you are done turn the key off. the door locks will lock and unlock. the remote fob should work after this."
