Hello Jag Lovers,
I am finally getting back to doing something with my car, 1985 XJ6. I inherited it a while ago but never got around to doing anything with it. The car has been sitting for over 20 years. I was only able to find the ignition key when I got the car. Now I need to get keys for it because I have no way to lock the doors or the tanks and can’t get into the trunk/boot. Has anybody had any luck getting key codes based on the VIN? When I checked Jaguar Classic, they said there was only 2 keys recorded for this car. The tank locks were not recorded. I know I need to get key blanks for all the keys but don’t know which one to get for the tanks. I vaguely remember what the tank key looked like on my parents 87 XJ6. I used that car a lot but don’t know if there are any differences between the 87 and 85 XJ6. Is the better option to get key blanks and have a locksmith make the keys based on the current locks?
