Hi Ryan,


On the question of location sensor I am unsure where it is on the 2.5 Petrol engine as I have a diesel.  If the gauge is showing normal I am only guessing that it could be a faulty sensor. You can google Coolant sensor location - S Type 2.5 litre and you should get several diagrams.


On the question of a refurbishment of the key fob have a look at the website of Taunton Jaguar - I did the same job on my car using them online.


To get a new key, I think that you may well have to go to a Jaguar Main dealer. You will need to take your car details --  log book, as it used to be called!

You can buy the fobs with the chip and key blade on ebay it would need programming and the key cut correctly but many specialist locksmiths can do this for a reasonable price.

sounds like the button on your fob has indeed worn (the button pads are soldered to the chip) again a locksmith may do this or theres people on ebay who can do it. A lot cheaper than main dealers
