    Will a new keyfob fix the problem?

    I've found new ones online along with programming instructions. Is this an advisable way to proceed?

If the fob doesn't work with new batteries, then replacement is your only option, so, I believe this is the best way to proceed.

Unfortunately theres not a lot you can do with them. If you are sure the battery is OK and the contacts are clean and it still doesn't work then a trip to the dealers to get it reprogrammed or replaced is in order.
Can you see any moisture inside? any chance you dropped it in the rain by accident?
If by any chance it has come into contact with moisture try drying it out somewhere warm but not hot as that may cause more damage.

Dear sir/madam,

To do this procedure you need to have one working key and one key that needs to be programmed.

  1. with the both keys, get in the car and close all windows and doors.
  2. Put working key into the ignition and turn to position 1 (the accessories should turn on)
  3. turn the key back to position 0 and take key out of the ignition.
  4. Using the working key, hold down the unlock button, press the Roundel (lock button) 3 times, and release the unlock button. Doors should lock and unlock.
  5. With the new key, hold down the unlock button and press the Roundel (lock button) 3 times and let go of the unlock button. Doors should lock and unlock and you're done!!
Alternate procedure if above doesn't work or if you do not have a working remote:


1. turn key to position 1 five times very quickly

2. remove key

3. Hold unlock button then press lock button 3 times, release unlock button.

4. If you have another key do the same button pressing within 30 seconds

5 turn on igntion to finalize


thanks
good luck

It is possible that your unit needs to be re-programmed to your car.

Please try this:

1 Insert key into ignition
2 Turn key to ''I"
3 Turn key "II" and back to ''I'' quickly 4 times
4 Alarm system will chime once when key is back to ''I'' for the
fourth time
5 Remove key from ignition
6 Press any button on each key fob and alarm system will chime
for each fob if it has been programmed correctly
7 Press unlock/lock/trunk etc to make sure everything works

Pay special attention to point 6, every fob you have must be programmed at the same time although you only need to use one key in ignition.

Best Regards,

Brian

I have a 2005 cobalt every time I open the doors the alarm goes off I replaced the battery in keyless entry but they do not work can anyone help?


You may have accidentally broke the controller. They are fragile. The newer cars like yours automatically set the alarm when the doors are locked from keychain remote, or locking manually. New remote, $50-100.

Keyfob remote reprogramming is not very difficult but on some cases it can be done by dealer service tools.If the remote s faulty then keyfob will not get programmed.Insert the key in ignition.Turn the key to on position,and cycle the key three times off-on-off-on-off-on.Then with the keyfob remote select your remote and then try to operate the vehicle with remote.These is just the basic procedure,but sometimes it will not help.

Key/FOB programming


Jaguar X-Type Programming (Pairing) a Remote KeyFob X-Type 2.0, 2.5 and 3.0L

keyfob.jpg

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.

Blinking lights after battery replacement


Solution: The remote key entry system is waiting for you to push the "Unlock" button on your keyfob to sync up the car's receiver and the keyfob's transmitter. Just push the keyfob button and the lights will stop blinking.
