Hello and welcome to justanswer.com

Unfortunately that procedure only works for the remote. Since you replaced the complete assembly and you have a new key that key will need to be programmed with a Jag factory tool or equivalent in order for it to start your vehicle.

even if i used the reciver ring that goes around the ignit. from the junkyard the key and the ring are a mached set.what else reads the transponder in the car

Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 10 years ago
Yes that is correct however that key code is not recognized by the vehicles computer so it will not start.
