    X Type - key fob security failure

    WHEN YOU SAY NEW KEY ? DOES THIS MEAN THE METAL PART ! IF SO YOU HAVE TO PLACE THE KEY IN THE IGNITION BARREL AND LET IT LINK UP TO THE NEW KEY PLUS THE CIRUIT BOARD, THEN DO THE PROGRAMMING WHERE IT DOES THE CHIMES. BUT DO IT IN A ORDER, I THINK THERE IS A LINK WHERE SOMEONE HAS EXPLAINED THIS IN ONE OF THE POST. AS FOR THE NEW CICUIT BOARD I WOULD SEE IF IT LOOKS THE SAME REGARDING TO ITS OUT LAY, AS SOME CICUIT BOARDS DIFFER. FOR ME I JUST HAD TO CHANGE THE TACTILE BUTTONS ON THE CICUIT BOARD X4 AND MINE NOW WORKS GREAT, THATS ON A 2004 X TYPE, BEST OF LUCK ...HOPE YOU GET SORTED, DAVE.
  2. sounds as your having a night mare with this issue, at least with you doing the job yourself you will be getting a great insight of the layout of everything and best ways of fitting new parts back in ,( when my boost pipe went I checked loads of components that support the whole system. ) good luck with the repairs, look forward to seeing pics when posted.

    2006 2.2D xtype . Need some help please

    sounds as if you are having problems with the electrics, you need someone with a multimeter to check your wiring from the fuse box/ check fuses, (blown) for any resistance in each of these issue's that you have posted. you my have a short or bad earth? good luck with this,

    Changing relector rings (window type) at home

    nice to see someone having ago at doing the job them self, sounds like it was tough going but your persistence has paid off with a good job done. well done,👍 plus money saved too. nice to see the pictures as the work was progressing as you were going along. hope it all gets sorted and drives as it should, with no issues. regards dave.
  6. hi les....my suggestion would be to go and see a good auto electrician, who should check the problems for bad earths, voltage drops or shorts, also any overloads along with resistance test too. as for your auto gearbox again you need to see the right people who can check the gear box properly, where they should do all relevant checks and test, these will be gearbox specialists in the engineering side of things. not your joe blogs car machanic who thinks it may be this or that ? good luck with this and I hope you get it sorted …….. dave.

    Glow plug light flashing when starting.

    try a code reader on it, if you have one ! if not try a multi meter, and find if volts are reaching each glow plug in turn. but then you can go deeper and check for resistance, plus check to see if a bad earth is breaking down. also check for any breaks in the wiring loom ? if not confident with this, then find a good auto electrician if the problem gets worse, as in not starting at all...

    x type windscreen scuttle

    went and got me a second hand windscreen scuttle today as mine had got its plastic insert broke which clips into a grove in the windscreen. I found this out when hoovering out the passenger footwell. as it was damp and wet in places. before fitting the scuttle I gave it a bit of a freshen up by using black liquid shoe polish, (see pic) but I shall not through the old one away as I intend to try and repair it.

    Legal Cheek!

    me ..I would get in touch with bbc watchdog program ! then in touch with trading standards. before signing anything... seems very dodgy to me, as you say best get more legal advice. plus its down to what terms and conditions was signed at time of purchase ? get all your facts right before moving forward with this issue... good luck.

    Engine issue on my 2004 d

    well back off me holidays....and straight onto checking me intercooler/rad, boost pipe, map sensor and pipe to intercooler, well the hardest job was to take the front bumper undercover off, 19 screws to undo but they where nearly all rusted up, so had to angle grind them off. (cover off) which then reveled the problem straight away.....a jubilee clip had rusted and blown the boost pipe off. so down to me shed and put a new clip on the pipe...job done, test to make sure....now I need my as my joints ache.

    Engine issue on my 2004 d

    stuart, you will never guess whats happened ? ! but Saturday out in the jag and the exact same thing has now happened to me. up till now I have checked and cleaned the EGR valve, plus checked the plunger in the EGR for movement when under vacuum....works ok. checked turbo actuator arm for movement also when under vacuum...seems ok ? checked booster pipe from EGR valve down to map sensor... no splits. also checked the vacuum actuation supply unit which sits under the car ( needs engine cover off ) this also works ok. next to check when I get time is the pre-charge pipe from map sensor to air cooler/radiator.. but at the moment we are getting ready to go on are holidays, so its all on hold this moment.... so if you get yours fixed before me ? ! please let us all know your outcome as to what your problem was.. because it will be great help for all us other jag owners... regards dave.

    Engine issue on my 2004 d

    if its not revving correctly ? it maybe your turbo actuator ? but there are two types, you need to check which you have ? if you have time look through recent posts in (x type topic) as it will help you find what to look for. or it maybe a split hose? good luck with your search, and hope you sort out the problem..

    S Type Brake Bleed

    hi martyn, when ever I do my brakes I do it the old way.... someone sits in the car and pushs the pedal down while the other person turns the bleed nipple with a pipe attached into a glass jar with brake fluid in. until all corners are done. then its test the pedal for how hard its gone ? if the pedal is still spongey and it goes down slow when pushed, it maybe the rubber seals in the master cylinder are worn and need replacing. but most of the time it nearly always works first time when we have bleed the brakes as ive said doing it the old way. good luck as they can become a nightmare..... dave.
