  1. Always connect (via jump leads) a spare, fully charged battery to the + and - leads whilst changing the battery - I learned my lesson...
  2. Fantastic. I thought it was something like that but didn't want to get your hopes up. Mention the forum (and the chap with the sport brake who had the key cover).
  3. I honestly can't remember as they also sprayed and supplied a lock cover for me. Give them a call and explain the problem - they are familiar with it now so should be able to give a rough idea of cost.
  4. My garage did the latter, however the voltage in the donor battery was lower than required and still triggered the problem. A freshly charged battery or a charger is the best way to go.
  5. Doesn’t work in this instance... (ymmv)
  6. Find the nearest garage with an Autologic machine and book it in. Takes about 10-15 minutes.
  7. Fantastic, It's great to pass it along... I'm in Dolgellau but have family in Leics. so made a short weekend of it. I'm going back in a couple of weeks to have a second key coded too.
  8. Hi. I wanted to add to this thread as I encountered the same problem after a local garage installed a new battery for me. Without all the detail, their Autel system wouldn't reprogram so I went to another placewith the JLR software which also didn't work... I then came across this thread and booked in with a garage who use the Autogic software. 10 minute and on my way, all done. They're an indy Jag specialist. MDM Services Unit 4 Stephenson Industrial Estate Coalville, Leicester LE67 3HP 01530 838666 No affiliation at all to said garage but they were fantastic - fitted me in without an appointment and were well priced. (oh, and thanks to the posters who gave this info in the first place )
