X type key fob and phone questions


Recommended Posts

I recently purchased a 2008 Jaguar X type 2.2 diesel 6 speed manual gearbox, and I have a couple of questions on it:

1: It doesn't have jaguar voice fitted, and that doesn't bother me as I can answer calls via bluetooth, which is all I need really. However, I'm having trouble transferring the phone book numbers from my phone. I've tried several methods (given in the handbook and by searching Google) but, when I try to dial a number manually using the memory buttons (the car is a 'standard' dash and not touch screen) it says 'empty' when I press a number button. 

2: I had 3 keys when I bought it, one of which didn't work. I've swapped the battery, cleaned the contacts and the rubber pads. I've paired it to the car and it now locks/unlocks the car but won't start it, am I right in thinking that there's a transponder chip somewhere in the fob that enables the engine to be started? If so I'm assuming that it's missing in this fob. 

Any help would be much appreciated.
