Recommend Me A Specialist


Recommended Posts

My X Type is in great condition, everything works as it should.. Except my bluetooth hands free. I`ve spent allday today turning ignition on and off, waiting six minutes, entering codes, trying to pair my phone, disconnecting the battery for an hour, reconnecting, entering touchscreen puk code, trying again.. IT IS DOING MY HEAD IN!


The system is all there, it SHOULD be working.. Getting all sorts of weird messages on the screen, phone in use, replace handset, communication error please contact dealer..


I give up!! I need a specialist. I do not want to go to the Jag dealers, I want a reputable enthusiast. I Have an MR2 Turbo and that is looked after by a guru in Sheffield, I need to find a mechanic like him but for the Jag! Someone that has a love for Jaguars and knows them inside out.


I live in Leicestershire but I do not mind taking it further away providing I get good service.


Can anybody recommend me a specialist? Thanks. Dan.

It`s something to do with the touchscreen system I`m sure. I have an iPhone 5 and a Blackberry and neither will work. You are supposed to get a screen with the keypad come up, and enter ##1*## or something similar. Most of the time, I get the message `phone in use` or `communication error contact dealer` and cannot even get to the keypad stage.


Randomly, I get the phone keypad come on, but when I enter the code nothing happens. It is meant to come up with `discover handset` but it does nothing. Then I had `phone not powered on. Power on?`. But when you press power on nothing happens. There is something not right. The only other thing I have heard is there is some wiring in the boot running from the sat nav disc area/cd multichanger? Apparently you can unplug some wires and plug back in see if that clears it?? I gave up today it was really annoying me!


My iPhone briefly picked up `bluetooth handsfree device`, but then started searching again and that cleared off the screen. I`m stumped. Unless there is somthing that has packed in with the bluetooth that needs replacing? The dash looks a pig to take apart? I`ve changed car stereos in old corsas and my MR2s but they were easy clip off dash parts and a few screws, I don`t want to snap any clips on the X Type so thinking let someone who knows them well and has done it many times sort it out.

In my handbook it says.


1: Start the bluetooth search function on your mobile phone


2: Your phone will list any bluetooth devices found, select Jaguar from the list


3: Now enter bluetooth PIN1313 into your mobile phone


The phone should now pair and dock to the vehicle system

Also found this , don't know if it's of any use, but i hope so :



Select Phone Mode (if not already selected).

Use touch-screen keypad to enter the following digit sequence and press the Send/End button.

The following sequence performs exactly the same function, but times-out after approximately five minutes, ##1#*#.

(If you are not familiar with the Pairing process, this sequence is NOT Recommended, because of the time-out period.)

At the SIG**** screen the vehicle system is waiting for communication with a bluetooth equipped telephone.

Check that your mobile phone is set to theJaguar bluetooth system, using the menu functions on the phone. Refer to the handbook that was supplied with your specific mobile phone.

When Jaguar device is found on the mobile phone display, the phone will prompt you to enter the pass key (1313) on the mobile phone keypad.

When the above operation has been completed and the phone is successfully Paired and connected with the vehicle system, the SIG* screen will be displayed.

Hi Dan,


I had a 2005 x type and my 'phone would not pair with they car either, although I din't have the touchscreen system..


Eventually I came to the conclusion that the phone was not compatible and gave up.


The is a topic on Jaguar Owners Lounge giving recommendations for independent Jaguar specialists which is worth looking at.

Thanks Trevor, also had that information, I tried it on Sunday over and over again no joy. I have now come to the conclusion that it is either the phone module or the bluetooth module at fault. Spoken to an expert/Jag technician and he says try unplugging them and leaving over night, then connect back up and see if everything resets itself. One module lurks in the boot near the cd changer and the other is sited within the center armrest area.


Started taking things to bits and then came across Torx style screws, so need to invest in some Torx screwdrivers before I can get any further! I will update if I solve this. If unplugging them does not work, new modules needed.

Right! What an absolute ball ache to get to the bluetooth module! Just got mad and started taking things apart lol! Torx screws everywhere! The blutooth module is stuck on with velcro inside the cubby box between the seats, to get to this you need to remove the ashtray and center console plastics and the carpet trim. I`ve opened it up and all looks fine.. This is not a phone incompatibility issue as the thing does not even try and search for a phone, it is either this module I`ve just yacked out or the one in the boot I think. I have also had the stereo/sat nav unit out and cannot see any loose or disconnected wires.. Going to leave this disconnected for an hour and then put everything back together.


I did remove the ugly phone holder at the same time so if this does not work at least I did one job successfully. lol. I cannot see any burn marks on the circuit board in the module so maybe it will turn out to be the one in the boot. It is an effort to get to the cubby box one! I hope the one in the boot is easier.
