In reply to a message from gary breyer sent Sat 31 Aug 2013:
You might need to ID the security module in your car before
getting a remote for it, looks like Jaguar used both the
315mhz and 433 mhz systems in the earlier X308 cars.
From the JDHT site:
To VIN F20644 LJA2610AA
To VIN F41862 LJE2610AB
To VIN F20644 LJA2610BA
To VIN F21235 LJE2610BB
From VIN F21236 LJE2610BC
The security module should be in the boot, right rear –
but, it might need a Jaguar Diagnostics Unit just to even ID
the darn thing.
Be that as it may, and for what it’s worth: I’ve got a
LJA2610AA you’re welcome to if you can wait on the postal
I do think there’s a better than even chance you’re going to
have to find someone with the Jaguar Diag unit to sort out
I can certainly empathize on both the dealers and indies
that are pigs. I had to purchase the SAAB equivalent of the
Jaguar Diag unit to service my SAABs. Like you, I’ve vowed
to NEVER re-visit the indie I’ve access to and at the shop
rates (along with a hefty dose of attitude) main dealers are
not much of an option either.
A good, fair indie is worth the travel time to visit.
Actually, my local Jaguar main dealer is now my local SAAB
main dealer. Can’t see how that would improve either the
cost or the attitude but hey, could not be worse!–
The original message included these comments:
Bob, with dealer rates being what they are over here, it would
probably be less expensive for me to ship the car to you or, fly
you over:-)> Alternatively, there is an indie, within a mile of my
home, who has all the Jaguar diagnostic equipment the main dealers
have BUT, this man is a pig. I used him when I had my XJ40, about
10 years ago, and vowed never to return. My head says go to him
but, my principles tell me to stay away.
Dom, thanks very much. Your fob, being for a 2000 car, probably
won’t be compatible. I’m told I need either part# LJA2610BA or
LJA2610BB. What number is yours? And, if I did accept your
02 VDP – Driveway’s got too many SAABs in it!
