HelloFirst we need to check the battery is the remote. The key and the remote part are separate. The fob itself could also be the problem.I also recommend we check the door on the ignition lock barrel. If it is stuck open then the vehicle will think the key is in the ignition and the remote will not work. You can visually look at this or open the door with the key out of the ignition to see if there is a warning chime.Let me know.

The battery. Is. New and there. Is chime when I. Open the door
Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 4 years ago
Ok thanks. If there is a chime when the key is out of the ignition the door is stuck. Try spraying some lubricant in the ignition lock then quickly insert and remove the key to see if the door will close and the chime is no longer sounding.Unfortunately I am unavailable for a phone call request at the moment but we can continue here til then.Let me know
