Hello and welcome back to justanswer.com

When this problem occurs are any warnings on? For the key how many programmed keys do you have? Are you looking to program a key to start your vehicle or program a remote?

yes the computer shows gearbox fault....i have one key and i would like to be able to use it on the remote instead of putting the key in the door each time
Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 10 years ago
Ok since the gearbox fault warning is on the module has detected a failure. Usually this can be resolved by clearing and reprogramming the TCM software with a Jag tool. As far as the key we can reprogram the remote manually. I will send over the procedure.

There is a manual method that works most of the time. Here's how to do it.

 

To carry out the manual key transmitter learning procedure, follow the steps below.

Note: When carrying out steps 4 to 6, all current transmitters will be erased from memory. Ensure all transmitters to be programmed (up to 5) are available before proceeding.

 

Note: If at any stage two chirps are emitted,then an error has occurred, if this is the case, repeat the process from step 1. When carrying out steps 1 to 7, ensure no other transmitters are operated within range of the system.

 

1.Open driver door (door must be open throughout the programming process).

 

2.Pull turn signal stalk to the headlight flash position and hold.

 

3.Insert ignition key and turn to auxiliary position (position 1), then release the turn signal stalk.

 

4.Flash headlights five times (there will be an acknowledgment chirp from the sounder, and the PATS LED will flash once).

 

Note: Up to 5 transmitters can be programmed. Push the second transmitter button directly after programming the first, etc. Do not repeat the complete sequence as the first transmitter will be erased.

 

5.Push any transmitter button (there will be an acknowledgment chirp from the sounder, and the PATS LED will flash once).

 

6.Turn "OFF" the ignition and remove the key, (there will be an acknowledgment chirp from the sounder, and the PATS LED will flash once).

 

7.Close driver door and check transmitter(s) functions.
