Sounds like the pats (passive anti theft system) is not recognising the chip in the key try a spare key if you have one if not try to get it reprogrammed you may have to go to a jag dealer to sort this out may be the reluctor coil around the ignition barrel has gone faulty

My key wont unlock my doors on a 2002 jaguar xtype

The door lock cylinders have either been replaced or the lock cylinders are frozen from rust and corrosion. Best bet is to spray some type of penetrating oil in the key hole and let it try to soak in and keep trying the key gently to work it loose, if that doesnt work, you can most likely get new lock cylinders or have a locksmith cut you keys for them

Power door locks will not remain locked, they pop unlocked after a few seconds

This is a problem with the ignition switch, it thinks the key is still in the ignition, the internal switch may be stuck , start by spraying a little silicone into key hole then put key in and start car then remove key, do this a few times and spray a few times but just a little spray. hope this helps.

Anti Theft System - inmobilizer is actovated. Need disarm to start engine. Have you another key and fob? Try lock/unlock cycle with new key + fob. Your key may be corrupted.

Try also just unlocking the car with the key (not the fob) as soon as you unlock the door put the key in the ignition immediately and see if the car starts.

If you have your radio code it may be worth trying a total reset (leave the car unlocked) disconnect the battery and leave for 20 mins. then reconnect.

Hope help with this.

Car won't start, turn the key and nothing happens.

hi, try disconecting the battery for a couple of hours and try again but make sure you have your stereo code. if this does not work your key fob may be out cync with your ecu and will require reprograming it is easy on x type , you can do it your self ,you can find the instructions in jag forums or ebay for 1.99

Wont start

Inertia switch located on the passengers side (under the dash). You may need to remove a small door to get access to it. If you have not been in an accident, then it was probably tripped accidentally. Simply press the button, and it will reset. This should get your car running again. Good Luck!
