Immobiliser on so can't get new key coded


Recommended Posts

Hi, I hope someone can help me.

 

I lost the key to my car ( the only one I had) and my son broke into the car I I thought maybe I had dropped it into the boot, Finally got in and no joy. I have scoured everywhere but no luck in finding the key.

 

Got a specialist out and he has cut two keys for me but the car won't let him code it. It has an immobiliser on and keeps asking for a password or code. It gives him a set of numbers that he has to send somewhere for the password but no clue where this code needs to be sent to. This is driving my insane now as I live in a fairly small village and need my car to shop and visit family. I hope someone here can help me 

 

Thanks

In the book pack of my car I am sure in the front there is a card with codes on it, like A credit card type thing ... as far as Im aware those codes need to be used to program new keys as the code is inside the ECU/Immobilizer system.

I was looking through the manual today and I found a section about new keys. This said that up to 8 keys can be stored on the system. To store a new key, insert key into ignition and turn key to switch on ignition (do not start the engine). Leave ignition on for not more than 5 seconds then turn off ignition and remove key. After 10 seconds insert second key, turn to switch on ignition and leave on for not more than 5 seconds. Turn off ignition and remove key. Wait 10 seconds and repeat as necessary.

hi

on the S-type new keys and remotes can only be programed with Jaguar IDS/SDD software

you either need a jaguar repairer or indy, or a lock smith with the software

cheers
