    I'm having the same issue. Did you find an answer?

    I have the same problem, but I know what it is... the key fob needs reprogramming. A dealership can do it for about £45, or you can do it yourself with a little searching in the web. Try the link to one site offering a cheaper solution.

Have you tried pressing the button twice? First time opens the drivers door, second time opens all other doors.

you may have a bad door switch, theres a switch on the drivers door lock, when door is unlocked with fob or key the switch is activeated to shut alarm down,the lock moves to hit switch with key or fob,so if the switch is bad it will not shut down alarm, i would start there,door panel has to be remove,then latch has to be remove to get to switch, then test with a meter see if it opens and closes the connection, hope this helps.

Jag S-Type -intermitent fault where the remote fob does not work


This does not sound like a fob fault - but a locking control module fault , either in the hardware or software of the unit. Get it checked at a Jaguar dealers. When unlocking using the key - as soon as the door is opened you should hear a chime sounding inside the car - this is a timer counting down to sounding the alarm. If you put your key in the ignition as soon as you open the door the alarm should not go off and the chime should stop. If it does not this again points to a fault in the locking controller.
hope this helps - good luck.

Remote locking on 1996 jaguar xj6


it sounds like the module to the alarm in the car is going bad. the sensor that detects for jags is the tied into the dash speedometer so this will need to be swapped out by the dealer only. the module will also need reprogrammed and rechecked after the reprogramming.
