XF Central locking Malfunction

Recommended Posts

I have had to buy two new keys and have them recoded. RAC are not taking any responsibility for the fault which is what I expected. The thing is, Jag have said that it was probably something they have done but currently won’t commit to document that for me. I am none the wiser as to what has happened but it is booked back in jag as my reversing camera comes on and then goes off, stop/start is not working and the automatic lights are not working.

at a loss, £1100 spent so far.

I am having similar issues with my XF sportbrake. Car appears to lock and then the double beep. After several attempts I can get all doors locked apart from the drivers door. Now having to use manual key to open and lock.. can anyone advise on what I can do / where I can take it to be looked at. Am in London.

It’s in the owners hand book, no diagnostic tool required. Manually unlock all the doors inside the car, remove the emergency lock cover on the outside passenger front door handle, using the emergency key blade from inside the key fob turn and hold the lock to the unlock position and press and hold the unlock button on the fob and it should re-synchronise the key fob to the car.

I had an accident on my Jaguar XE and had to replace the right rear door including the module. The door and the module where from the same car (second hand) now when I tried to lock my car using the key fob all doors lock apart from that one! been checking with many people and plugin diagnostics but nothing is showing. When I press the lock button the key fob it makes the 2 beeps but no lights come on. 

Have anyone had a similar issue and willing to help ? or where can I take the car for repair ? I am based in London 

Thanks.

Hi all, I've never responded to a forum before but I decided to join this one because I wanted to share my recent experience with my recently purchased 2013 XF Sportbrake . Just after buying the car I did a check for any outstanding recalls , there was just the one outstanding recall , an issue with airbag connections on the module near the centre console . I booked this in with Jaguar dealers not too far from where I live , they said ' it will only take approximately 1 hour ' . After the hour had passed my keys were returned to me , the car had been washed but then I was told that the central locking had a problem and if I wanted this to be looked at then I have to re-book it in at a cost of £170 + vat  just to find out why. To cut a long story short they were going charge me over £2000 to sort this out .It took 5 days and legal threats to get them to accept that they had created the central locking problem as a result of DISCONNECTING the battery for them to do the recall work . THERE IS A COMMON PROBLEM HERE REGARDING THE DISCONNECTION OF THE BATTERY JAGUAR KNOW ABOUT THIS , THERE IS EVEN A JAGUAR BULLETIN ON THEIR TECHNICAL WEBSITE THAT HIGHLIGHTS THIS PROBLEM.....JAGUAR NEED TO ACCEPT THAT THEY HAVE A PRODUCT HERE THAT HAS AN INHERENT ISSUE . WE THE END USER SHOULD NOT HAVE TO PUT UP WITH A POTENTIALLY POORLY DESIGNED , SUPPOSEDLY " PREMIUM " VEHICLE .

I had a problem very similar to this in that my central locking failed after replacing the main car battery. Everything other than the locks were fine and the fuel filler flap locked ok but not the doors or boot. I went to a local specialist and also my main dealer and they didn't have a clue what the problem was, the main dealer wanted to start stripping the doors and locking modules but I decided to do a little more research first! 

I found a thread on another forum which was pretty much identical to this one and the poster reported that he had his problem fixed by a specialist in Milton Keynes called E & E Services. I called them up and they immediately knew what the issue was and how to fix it. I live a long way from Milton Keynes but just wanted to get it fixed so ended up driving up there this morning even though they offered to talk a local garage through the process on Autologic which apparently has a lot more workarounds than the standard Jag SSD system. The issue was that the door lock modules needed a security relearn and they did this in about 5 minutes! Then it was back on my way for the return leg of 110 miles...

If you've got this problem I'd definitely give E&E a call; I couldn't recommend them highly enough. I have no affiliation with them other than being a happy customer whose door locks now work again at minimal expense (particularly given that my local specialist wanted to change all the door locks and the local JLR main dealer wanted to strip the car!).

Hi mate thanks for sharing could you advise how much did they charge and if the issue is fully resolved after software update etc ?

 

i have similar issue on my Xf 2013 - door locks were absolutely fine until yesterday when I gave it a deep clean and car was unlocked for about 3-4 hours .. I didn’t strip anything was just cleaning under bonnet and interior.. now both rear  doors aren’t locking ..
