Question about 2000 Jaguar S-Type

1 Answer

The doors lock when car begins to move, that is the norm but i cannot unlock them from inside unless i take the key out of the ignition and use the key fob. The rear doors are not affected. This is happening 80% of the time.

    Thankyou for your help, this car never had this problem when i first got it, also, as i said in the first section,the rear doors are not affected. It is therefore not how it was manufactured. It has become almost dangerous as i am not able to drop anyone off without switching off the engine and removing the key.Hope this clarifies things.

This is a security feature, most new cars do this, like the olds alero for example, and much like it, your car may have programmable door locks, the user manual should tell you such information. should be under the security section.

Central locking


That is correct. The door unlocks when you pull the inside handle. All in the interests of safety. On my car, a single press on the fob opens the driver door only, two presses opens all the doors.

The key wont turn in the door lock of my 2004 Ford Escape and the electronic locking mechanism doesn't work unless the key is in the ignitionl. How can I get into my car?


It's not going to seem very helpful, but the only way that you'll be able to take care of this is to manipulate the lock from the inside. This is, of course, assuming your keys are stuck inside your car. If not, attempt unlocking the door by physically using your keys.

If your keys are locked in your vehicle, use the AAA wedge on the door and attempt to retrieve the keys -- they physically will be able to manipulate the lock. If the keys are gone, you could attempt wedging the door open and using a metal or plastic bar or plate to bypass the lock on the door itself (passing it between the door closing mechanism and the frame of the vehicle). If you're desperate, and don't have the keys anyways, it may just be time to break a window and do things the old fashioned way.

Cannot open drivers door of my 1996 honda crv automatic using key or from inside. having to climb over from passenger side to drive and get out again.


Sue we arn't talking keyless entrey here .
Then if the key works in the other locks it must be good not worn out .
Witch leaves the lock cylinder on the drivers door or the mechinizam that moves the rods inside of the door to lock and unlock it .
Dose the key feel like it fits ok and the lock turn normally .If so that leaves the mechinizam inside the door .
Its not the end of the world likely something popped off or a little plastic clip broke that holds the rod in place .
The door needs to be taken apart from the inside witch means it needs to be open to repair .Its like a caught 22 can't fix it unless its open but can't open it .
There are ways slim jim or the old coat hanger way if you can roll the window down think about it do a little reserach it can be opened with out distroying the door

The doors will not lock or unlock from the door but will from the remote?


The title suggest the door won't unlock unless the remote is used but during the summer it was the inverse. If while inside the car the doors will not lock or unlock from the door but will from the remote then you have a faulty switch.If while outside the car the key turns while in the lock but the door won't lock or unlock then the linkage at the end of the lock is faulty. You'll need to remove the door inside plate to check this.

My 1990 Toyota 4runner can't unlock by key on either the passenger or driver side. The key works with the back window/door and ignition but not these locks. I was able to get the passenger side to move to...


locks are probably seized up and may even have internal linkage
rusted out could cost close to same to repair manual locks
or installed remote door lock (push button) check with salvage yard
just remember to get 2 lock with key and linkaged

Door locked can not unlock or open door pass door


This is very common. what happens is the power door lock actuator freezes up and doesnt allow the linkage to move, you may have to use pliers to pull on the lever or remove the door panel to get inside the door and dissconnect the linkage from the actuator, then you will be able to unlock or lock with the key or lever its just the power lock wont work unless you replace the actuator, heres a picture of it and it located next to the latch on the door,e72fa1d.jpg

Need to reset the key fob after replacing the battery


You should not have to reset the key fob after a battery replacement. The signal from the key fob stays the same and is programed to the reciever.
If the key fob needs to be reprogrammed then follow these steps.
1. Have all key fobs with you during programming.
2. Sit in the vehicle with all doors closed.
3. Lock all doors using the Lock/Unlock switch on the door.
4. Insert and withdraw the ignition key 7 to 9 times within 10 seconds (do not turn the key, just insert and withdraw).
5. The 4 way flasher indicator on the dash should flash once or twice.
6. Insert the ignition key and turn it on (key on, engine off).
7. Press any button on one remote and the 4 way flasher indicator on the dash should flash once.
8. If you have more key fobs to program use the Lock/Unlock button on the door to unlock the doors and then lock the doors.
9. Press any button on the next key fob and the 4 way flasher indicator on the dash should flash once.
10. Repeat if you have more key fobs. Only 5 can be programmed.
11. To exit, simply turn of the igniton and remove the ignition key.
12. Unlock the doors using the Lock/Unlock switch on the door and exit the vehicle.
13. Make sure the window is down when testing remotes in case you leave the keys inside.
14. Close all doors and test all remotes that were programmed.

Do not skip any steps or the process will not work.

If the 4 way flasher indicator does not work when inserting the key, you will need to start the process from the begining. If it still does not work the receiver may be your problem.

If the 4 way flasher indicator does not flash when pressing any button on the key fob then the key fob is the problem (dead battery or defective remote)

How come on a 2002 GMC Denali if you lock your key inside


i would say the theft module saw the door trying to be open without the door lock or fob first, once the door lock button was pushed it shut down, it new doors were trying to be unlocked in a theft manner, once shut down it needs time to reset or needs to see ignition cycle with key and read chip in key, smart system isnt it, good luck.

How do I reprogram the 2004 Pontiac Vibe key fob?


To begin programming, follow the procedure.
  1. Set the following conditions: • Ignition off and ignition key out of cylinder. • All doors closed except drivers door. • Drivers door is unlocked.
  2. Insert and remove the key from the ignition switch twice within 5 seconds.
  3. After the above operations, close and open the driver door twice within 40 seconds. Then insert the key into the ignition key cylinder and remove it.
  4. After the above operations, close and open the driver door twice within 40 seconds. Then insert the key into the ignition key cylinder and close the door.
  5. Turn the ignition switch from LOCK to ON and back to LOCK at approximately 1 second interval 1to5 times to select desired mode. • 1 time for add mode • 2 times for rewrite mode • 3 times for confirmation mode • 5 times for prohibition mode
  6. Remove the ignition key from the key cylinder.
  7. After selecting a mode, the integration relay automatically performs the power door LOCK to UNLOCK operation within 3 seconds to inform the selected mode. • In the confirmation mode, when the operation is performed twice, it directs that 2 types of recognition codes have been registered. • In the confirmation mode, if the number of the registration code is 0 the LOCK to UNLOCK operation is automatically performed 5 times. • If the prohibition mode or confirmation mode is selected, registration procedure is completed. • If the add or rewrite mode has been selected, the doors will lock-unlock once or twice at 1 second intervals, once for add mode or twice for rewrite mode. • If the confirmation mode is selected, the doors will lock-unlock 0 to 2 times at 2 second intervals to inform the technician of the number of transmitters programmed. • If the prohibition mode is selected, the doors will lock-unlock 0 to 5 times at 1 second intervals.
  8. Registering new recognition codes for the add mode or rewrite mode. • Within 40 seconds after the add mode or the rewrite mode has been selected, press the LOCK and UNLOCK buttons on the transmitter simultaneously for 1.0 to 1.5 seconds. Within 3 seconds after the previous operation, press either one of the buttons for more than 1.0 seconds. • Within 3 seconds after the transmitter has been turned off, the LOCK and UNLOCK operation will be automatically performed once if the registration of the recognition code of the transmitter is completed correctly. In case the LOCK and UNLOCK operation is performed twice, the registration of recognition code has failed. Perform the registration procedure from the beginning once again.
  9. Press a transmitter button for 2 seconds. The doors will lock-unlock once at a 1 second interval to inform the technician that the signal has been received from the transmitter. • If the doors lock-unlock once, the transmitter programming has been completed. Go to step 8 to continue programming for additional transmitters. • If the doors lock-unlock twice, the transmitter programming is not complete. Go to step 8 to begin the transmitter programming again.
If any of the following conditions occur during programming, the remote control door lock receiver will return to normal operation:

Manual door locks on a saturn SC1 98' won't unlock w/ key


Try spraying some white lithium grease inside the key cylinder with a straw that comes with the new can. That should make the key turn easier. The straw goes right on the little hole on the nozzle. Best of luck to you.
