  1. My XF (X250) is having the boot to body cable loom blues so I can't open the boot electronically. I can't use the mechanical key either as the boot lid has been replaced without changing the mechanical lock barrel SO... is there any way to get into the boot without causing damage please?
  2. I did all of those retrofits and more on the S-Types. Let me know if I can help. I also use the Jaguar diagnostics and can set it up (properly) on a laptop if you decide to go that way. What was your username on 75 zt club? I
  3. Hello Chris. Which R75 forum did you frequent? Have fun with the S-Type. Lots of easy retrofits
  4. OK Dean, using the modules, locate the connectors in the luggage area loom.You will find that the voice module will not be fully populated. Install the modules where required on the Kaiser panel. This is the large sliver coloured plate which is bolted to the side if the luggage panel. I'll see if I can find some helpful pictures. Disconnect the D2B connector from the NAV unit and plug it into the extra portion of D2B cable. Connect D2B to each module, there is no specific order. Mount the CDC in the rack and make sure each module has a power cable and D2B attached. Connect
  5. Nope. Nothing doing from my usual sources. Back to fleabay I think
  6. OK. When you're ready I can give you a briefing if you find yourself getting lost.
  7. You need an Audio Connectivity Module. That will fully integrate, RCA, USB and iPod into your audio system. This was the part supplied by Jaguar. I can't see any on fleabay at the moment but expect to pay approx £250. Installation takes roughly 45 minutes. I had one in my S Types. Best mod I ever did.

  9. OK. If you can find a 1 to 4 cable assembly that would be best
  10. That looks OK 🙂 Once the modules arrive you'll find associated connectors tucked in to the loom. You will need a 1 to 4 D2B cable as well. You might have to get a couple of smaller ones and splice them to what you want. This I can do and post to you if required.
  11. Those were only examples .🙂 OK, while waiting, please check your electronics stack (boot, left side) looking for a D2B cable. Either plugged in or terminated. Have you got sat nav? I'm guessing you'll need a 1 to 3 D2B link but I'll need this info before committing to buy the D2B. If you can take pictures of the area around the stack with the trim removed it would help. If you were driving down the M6 in the near future, I'd sort it all out for you but it's a long way to drive, even in a Jaguar 😉 The image shows typical D2B cable
  12. No worries, I'll brief you as required. Are you able to splice optical cables or would you prefer a plug and play solution?

  14. Later model Bluetooth module Fakra aerial CDC Voice module Microphone D2B modifications as required I have the part numbers somewhere but haven't time to dig them out this evening. If you're keen to go ahead, let me know.
  15. Use your phone's bluetooth to look for "Jaguar". If it doesn't appear you don't have the kit fitted. Easy and cheap to do. Likewise, CDC is easy and cheap to fit, as is Voice control. You'd need to code them in using the Jaguar diagnostics but that's a simple procedure taking no more than 20 minutes. The wiring is almost certainly built in. I've been doing these mods on S and X and XJ for years and never yet found an X-type without the wiring. You'll have to add / extend the fibre optics but again, dead easy. All parts readily available. Let me know If I can be of
  16. The part number is 4X43-15K866. There will be two further digits which need.t be considered.
  17. More details please, exactly what does or doesn't happen 🙂 And welcome to the club 🙂
  18. Latest versions of SDD work fine on Windows native up to Windows 10. 32-bit is best because the Drewtech 64-bit drivers are not the best with the cloned Mongoose cables. Plus later versions require wifi connection as they have to talk to JLR during use. SDD/IDS works fast and stable if you know what you're doing but I'd still use a dedicated laptop so you can have TIS and JEPC on the same machine. JLR have a few sneaky hidden security checks so you need to run a modifier every time JLR downloads updates etc. You need to obtain JLR seed codes to allow you connection to TopIx whic
