Hi Rod,

 

I don't think that there is a generic code.

 

You can get the code from other places rather than Jaguar, who are inclined to charge a lot of money.

 

Most good garages have a gadget that will tell you.

 

Regards,

 

Peter.

  Get back on to Jaguar, Rod and tell them that it did not work.

 

Have you the touch screen on your car, or the message centre?  Does it ask you for the code?  If it doesn't work when the radio is switched on, it is either the wrong code of some misconnection.

Hi not sure, Yes ask's for a code, evrything was working great until the battery was disconnected for some welding to be done.

  Get back on to Jaguar, Rod and tell them that it did not work.

Enter any code 3 times so that the display shows "PLEASE WAIT"

Simultaneously press ">>" "PTY" "A.MEM" should only take 2 or 3 seconds and the radio turns on.

Hope this helps and saves some one some money!!

This works on my 2003 x type

Thank you , Happy to help any one with the code at anytime. If you have the serial number of the unit we can get the code within 1 hour from 9am to 11pm.

Thank you

Hi Rod

Well I think Jaguar charging £19.00 for your code is a disgrace, got my radio code from Landrover, they didn't charge me anything.

All the best

John

This definitely works in S-Types as well. It's included as part of the "Battery reset document" which is available for download from this forum

HI,

I just called Jaguar Glasgow who gave me code within 60 seconds. They, in addition, didn't charge or mention a charge. Just an update.

Hi Dave,

I don't know whether the 3 button frick will work on a pre facelift model, but most main dealers;ers will give you the code without charge,

Nice to see a prefacelift model in such a good condition.

Regards,

Peter.

hi

it should work if you have the touch screen

also if you phone a dealer they usually give it you for free

or look on ebay, you can get the code with the serial number for £1, if its not the oe strereo

cheers

Joe
