Auto Reserve Jaguar – XJ / X350 Remote Fob Programming – Detailed Instructions:


These instructions are suitable for XJ XJ6 XJ8 XJR and XJ TDV6 models 2003-2010


The procedure to program the remote fob or fobs is very simple and should take less than one minute. No tools are required.


All remote fobs available must be present when the car is in programming mode, so that they can be programmed at the same time as the new fob. Any fobs that have previously been programmed to the car will need reprogramming at a later date if they are not available when carrying out the following procedure.


1. Enter the car and sit in the Drivers seat.


2. Place the key in the ignition.


3. Hold the headlight flasher arm back – the blue “high beam” light will come on the dashboard and the headlights will come on.


4. Keep holding the headlight flasher back and turn the ignition key to position 1.


5. Release the flasher, and then flash the headlights FOUR TIMES. You will hear a “Beep” on the fourth flash of the headlight – this is to confirm that the car has entered Programming Mode.


6. Program each transmittor by pressing any button on each fob ONCE. You will hear a “Beep” to confirm the car has programmed to the fob.


7. The remotes are now ready to use.




Q: I have followed the procedure but cannot get my car to make a “Beep” noise. Am I doing something wrong?


A: You are probably doing nothing wrong, the problem may be with the speaker which produces the “Beep” noise. Sometimes these fail. Continue with the programming procedure as set out
above, you should still be able to program the fobs.


If you follow the procedure but still cannot program the remote fobs, there may be an internal fault with the Security Module which is preventing the car from entering programming mode. In this
case you will need to consult a Jaguar Dealer or Specialist.


Q: My car enters Programming Mode in Step 5, but when I go to Step 6 there is no “Beep” when I press the button on my remote fob.


A: There may be a problem with the fob itself or the receiving aerial in the car. There are a few things to try:


(i) Ensure the fob is fitted with a good quality, new battery (the battery size is “CR2032″ – we recommend Duracell, Varta or Panasonic).


(ii) Try holding the fob close to the rear windscreen, at the top centre of the glass. This is where the receiving aerial is located.


Q: I have programmed the fobs successfully, but when I press the button to lock the car nothing happens!


A: This may be caused by a faulty sensor on a door, or the boot or bonnet. Check all these are fully closed, and that there are no warning lights on the dashboard.


Q: I purchased a remote fob from a seller in a different country but it does not communicate with my car.


A: The remote fobs work on different transmittor frequencies in different parts of the world, for instance U.K and most of Europe use 433mhz, whereas U.S.A and Far East use 315mhz. If purchasing a fob from outside your own country you must be certain that the frequency matches your car requirement.
