Hello and welcome to justanswer.com

 

So you can lock the vehicle with the fob but it will not unlock, open the boot, or turn on the lights? Will the doors unlock with the key or using the lock knob on the inner door handle?

i did as you said unlocked the car with the key and it locks again with the fob no problem but will still not unlock with the fob

Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 11 years ago
Based on this I suspect a failure with the remote fob circuit board so you will need to have the fob replaced and reprogrammed.
