I have a 2009 XF Portfolio S 3ltr diesel 

The batteries in the tyre pressure sensors are dead and the management system shows a continuous error.  The TPMS is not required for this age of car I want the system disabled.

My local, Telford Shropshire,  auto electrician has the gear to do the work but the codes he needs to alter are greyed out, he doesn't know why and cannot proceed. 

Is there anyone here that can advise my electrician what needs doing. Or, is there another auto electrician not too far from (within 50 miles) Telford that can do it?

I would like to get it fixed asap lockdown excluded.  MoT due December must fix it before then

Thanks in advance

Is it not just as easy to remove the tyres and replace the batteries?

How much would kwikfit charge for that?

hi

also, if there, manufacturer fitted, they have to work at mot or its a fail

if you can disable them via software it would be ok, as long as there are no warning on the dash

you need Jaguar SDD software

cheers

No, the batteries are non-replacable. When they fail then it is a new sensor.

With my car it's the Tyre System Failure.  The wheel  sensors still work

Got my car booked in for 21st with a local auto electrician to see if they can cancel the Tyre System Failure warning. Then it wont matter what condition the wheel sensors are in. 

My next cat is going to be a mid 1985 model, something with no computers.
