I’m curious what variety there is in original XJS keys. I have no original keys for my '89. On my car one key (single side cut) does the ignition and the other key (double side cut) does everything else (doors, trunk, glovebox, gas door). The ignition key is an FT6R and the other key is a X86 / FC7.
Were there ever XJS keys that said “Jaguar” on the key itself? I know there are keys out there with a leaper on them (the big key with leaper is part number JLM476). Is there an ignition key with leaper?
I dont need any keys myself right now–just curious!
IIRC, all my XJS keys ('90 XJ-S, '94 XJS and '95 XJS) have been the same, at least as far as the main “black” key (all Tibbe, of course) … black plastic with “Jaguar” in very small print on the backside and a pushable growler face on the other. You push Mr. Growler and supposedly that activates a tiny light in the key so you can find the hole in the dark (errr, KEYhole ) I guess mine have always arrived with the bulb and/or battery shot (if it has a separate battery for the bulb ?), since I never could get the light to light. Anyone know how to open the key up to r/r the bulb and what size/where I can find replacement bulbs?
