Sounds like a dead battery. To verify, try jump starting -if it starts with a jump then you need a battery.

SOURCE: Jaguar 2002 3.0 X-Type. Turn the key and hear clicking noise.


That is your first line of attack.

Get a jump start with a "decent thick" pair of jump leads from a friend.

Connecting the Terminals> Red Positive + to Red Positive ...........and .Terminals > ---- Negative --- to Negative.

Once you get it running, get your battery heavy discharge tested.

If its OK, then get the Alternator charging rate tested.

Good Luck

SOURCE: 2002 jaguar x type wont start, lights, radio, air

Hi .
unlikely to be immobiliser fault ,so check basics,try a set of jump leads or check battery voltage above 12.5,if the clicking is coming from the starter motor with a fully charged battery then suspect starter motor failure.

neutral safety switch is out of sync, or failed. You can disassemble the shifter console, and manually move the neutral safety switch around to see if that is your issue, if it is, that switch can be disassembled and the contacts cleaned with Brasso of some other similar metal cleaner and shiner.

2004 Jaguar, Vaden Plaus,car just quit running going down the road. Had to have it towed home Won't start,turns over, just won't start,says Restricted Performance.

Sounds like it is some type of 'limp home' mode.
It could be anything. It might be as simple as a bad Fuel Pump Relay. When you turn the Key to the ON position (not Start) can you hear a little buzz for about 1 second? That would be your fuel pump running. You need to see if the engine is getting gas and spark.

Location of transponder module x type jaguar

i presume you mean the key transponder module for the security system, the system comprises of a key module/antennae module whitch is around the ignition barrel, this communicates with the instrument pack which is the brains of the p.a.t.s. security system, information is then sent around to the cars other modules, ie engine control module via the can network to say ok to start or this is not my key so dont allow to start. what is the nature of your problem? is the pats light flashing?

What can I do if my key won't turn in the ignition switch of my 2004 jaguar s type?

if its the correct key for your car and its not working try a spare if you have one. check the condition of the teeth on the key it maybe worn out or bent. it could also be the key tumbler that is worn and needs replacing. does your key chain weigh a lot that is more than the weight of say just 4 keys if so this may have caused the tumblers to were out.

It sounds like you have a dead battery. I would recommend that you have both the battery and the alternator checked.

2004 jaguar x-type will not start. turn key and i hear just one click and then nothing. took battery out to charge it and it was already fully charged. any suggestions?

I am not familiar with the machanics of this car, but just one click is either a starter or a starter solenoid. As this may be a Ford derivative, solenoid is probably remote, between the battery and the starter. Remote type, usually mounted on inside fenser wall, have large gauge wire from battery to one side and a large gauge wire from the other, with small wire(s) for starting cicuit - check connections for small wires first with cleaning and reattaching. Solenoid itself can go bad, can test by jumping across from large post to large post (CAREFULLY); if car starts, then solenoid is bad.

Re programme of key fob for a 2004 Jaguar x type

More infomation can be found at Jaguar X-Type Programming (Pairing) a Remote KeyFob X-Type 2.0, 2.5 and 3.0L

Programming or pairing a new remote Keyfob for the X Type is a very simple job that will cost a substantial amount if it is done by Jaguar. It's annoying but this may need to be done if your Keyfob battery has been allowed to go flat, or the car battery has been removed for any length of time.
Follow these steps exactly and you should have no problems, pairing old or replacement Keyfobs for your car.

1.)I would recommended that you ensure all key fobs are fitted with new batteries. ( Click here to see battery replacement guide).
2.)Get in the car and close the drivers side door.
3.)Put the key into the ignition and turn to position I.
4.)Wait 5 seconds
5.)Turn the key quickly to position II then back to I four times.
6.)You should hear a single chime.
7.)Remove the Key
8.)For each Keyfob in rapid succesion. Press any single button on the keyfob you wish to pair, you should hear a chime as each Keyfob is paired with the security system. After the chime do the next Keyfob.
9.)Check operation of each Keyfob.
