I have recently found one of the original remote controls for the
central locking system for my late wife’s 92 Jag that I recently
completed rebuilding. Looks like my late wife took the batteries
out of the remote before she put it away.
I need to know what batteries fit the remote. It is sort of skinny
and rectangular, with a single button. It looks like from the
illustration in the manual that it takes three thin flat round
The Jag manual says to get the remotes batteries from the Jag
dealer, but doesn’t specify what the batteries actually are. I
called the local Jag dealer, he says the batteries are ‘‘battery
pack JLM 1727’’ for $13.75, but doesn’t carry them in stock and
doesn’t know if he can get any, as the infra red system is now
Does anyone know what the battery specifications are? Battery
number or identifier? I am sure they must be a common size, I just
don’t know what that size is.
I am hoping that installing batteries in the one surviving remote
will get the infra red system working. If that doesn’t do it, the
dealer tells me the infra red systems are no longer available
through Jaguar. Are there any after market Central Locking Sytems
that would control the Jag’s door locks, with remotes?
Thanks in advance for any help.
ps I did a Forum historical search and checked the On Line Manual,
1992 Jaguar XJ 4.0 Sovereign
Calgary, Alberta, Canada
