Hi, My name is Clive and I have been a Jag owner for about 6 months, having bought it just before "lock down".

I've long held the view that "every one should own a Jag at some time in their life" and at 65 years of age I've realised the ambition.

One day in February I saw an S-type sitting on a local garage forecourt and popped in. The car was a 2004 2.5 litre petrol, one previous owner, 59000 on the clock and full service history. Twenty minutes later it was mine. It has replaced my 2002 Rover 75, itself a darn good car but getting a bit tired.

I have no regrets at buying the Jag, the only irritating part being the remotes which appear to have a mind of their own, sometimes they work, sometimes they don't, and you have to stand so close to the car that you can open the door with the key. I have replaced the microswitches, battery and rubber diaphragm which worked great for 3 days, then refused. I understand it could be the Drivers Door Module. I'm a mechanic but left the trade some years ago, I understand the nuts and bolts but the electronics are a bit of a mystery. Any advice would be welcome.

Thanks for letting me join.

Welcome to the forum Clive. Take the printed circuit board out of the remote and clean the contact areas with the rubber on the end of a pencil. As you’ve already replaced everything else, that’s the only other thing I can think of.
