All required remote transmitters must be available when carrying out this procedure.


1.Open driver's door.


2.Turn the ignition switch to the "auxiliary" position, then turn the ignition switch to the "ON" position and back to the "auxiliary" position four times.


Note :A chime from the Generic Electronic Module (GEM) will indicate programming status has been enabled.


3.Turn the ignition switch to "OFF" position.


4.Remove the key from the ignition switch.


5.To program the transmitter, press any key within 10 seconds.


Note :If the remote transmitter has been accepted, the GEM will make a chime





If any other remote transmitters are to be programmed, press any button once on each transmitter within 10 seconds.


Note : A maximum of four remote transmitters can be programmed to the vehicle at any one time.


7.Close driver door

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
nope it did not work. the fobs are over $250 for new and key is priced separately. could it be the driver door module?
Expert:  supertech replied 8 years ago.

It could be the rke receiver or the key fob itself.


When you take fob apart to install the battery,did you look at the buttons to see if there still hook up

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
not sure what you mean?? still hook up?
Expert:  supertech replied 8 years ago.
When you take the RKE apart there is little button that are solider to the circuit board,some time they come off the circuit board.

oh I'll ask my husband. all other websites said that Jaguar keyless remote can only be done by dealer
Expert:  supertech replied 8 years ago.
You put battery in it right?

Expert:  supertech replied 8 years ago.


When you have the battery out you can look in there to see if any thing is loose

Customer: replied 8 years ago.
