but i cant program it i do know how
Jaguar Mechanic: peterpete190, Auto Technician replied 4 months ago

O.k.,most likely the old key fob has failed internally as this is the most common cause I have seen and had to replace and program a new one.Since you have a new one it needs programmed and unfortunately this cannot be done manually.This requires a dealers PDU diagnostic machine to do this.Here is the note below on your year and model to program it on how it can only be programmed with this diagnostic machine unfortunately.

"The Security System RF handset transmitters can only be programmed with the Jaguar Portable Diagnostic Unit "

So you will have to have the new one programmed by a dealer or a local repair center in your area that has this tool to do this programming.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
