2000 jaguar xj8: my keyless remote will not work

This answer was rated:

I have a 2000 jaguar xj8 my keyless remote will not work. The battery is good on the remote.
Hello, Is this a factory keyless system or aftermarket?

Factory keyless system

Is the battery in the vehicle in good shape? Also when did the keyless entry stop working? Was there a a trip to the mechanic at some point, or did it always not work?

Just trying to do some deduction and see what may have happened.

The system stopped working yesterday. The battery on the car is in new about 6 months old. It has not been to the mechanic recently. When I put the key into the door lock and turn it anti-clock wise it locks and chirps as it is supposed to.

 

Customer............another expert here

 

If you are sure the Transmitter is transmitting a signal, you can try to rysync the Transmitter with the Reciever by
Stand next to vehicle
Press & Hold Lock & Unlock Buttons together for apprx 5 seconds.

If the above does not work, the system needs to be checked for problems, via Dealer Scan Tool.
Be sure you have all Remotes at that time
