Is the car immobilized? if so you may have to lock and unlock the car with the key and not the remote.
Is it turning over or just nothing, also starter motor may be jammed. put the car in gear with the hand brake off and push the car forward until you feel the engine turn over. You dont need the keys in the car!
This should free the starter off, sometimes they jam very tight and will not move at all, on these jags. they get rusty quickly if sat about. I had a XJ many years ago great motors.
I had a similar problem with my Lexus. I went to Lexus and they re-programmed it. Somehow it got corrupted or lost the code. This may sound stupid but are you sure it's not the batery? Is it the glow type?
could just be a bad alternator it happens,i have gone thru 3 before it happens,go get another and try again.it is a mechanical part,and parts go bad ,does not matter you just bought it,it happens.good luck with your project.hope this helped.
this is a simple troubleshooting issue....first go buy the mechanics manual from the auto store then go with the little stuff first try all your fuses battery cables and relays then flip your inertia switch and alternator maybe its not charging and the batteries dead if that doesnt work take it to them dirty guys with all those expensive tools but flip the inertia switch first sounds like an electrical problem
lost one of the key fobs to a 2007 mercury montego. dealer gave me a used one for free and instructed me to turn ignition key on and off 12 times but without starting the car. next, try key fob. worked for me. if you have 2 key fobs, you may have to reprogram both, so i would change batteries in the other one as well, but only after the non working one proves good.
