Ive read online that there are 2 types;

http://www.stallard-...ote key fob.htm

"One of the Jaguar Enthusiasts Club bulletin board members came to the rescue with an old fob of the correct type - early ones have the prefix LJA, whilst later cars use the LJE version."

Might be that I bought the wrong one last time.


Let’s see how they do...they were a tenner each and genuine jag ones are £80 on the bay so it will be interesting to see if they’re any good as a remote or whether they just start recording my conversations for our new Chinese overlords.

I know XJ40s had two different fobs that worked on different wavelengths. No idea if X300s had the same changes in their lifetime.

Postman arrived with goodie bag today,

Obvious problem given I ordered two fobs unless one is made from that new element called ‘Emperorsnewclothes-ium’

Reassuringly inexpensive construction

7bb95ed76ab7f3e851565f6610391b34.jpg

...and it’s now go jag to make look a right dodgy geezer on eBay as it didn’t work but as soon as I’d signed for it, I mailed the seller to report one missing but I’m now going to have to start a return.

A suspicious vendor may think I’ve pretended to only get one and started a return to keep one. :(

I wish I was quite so devious but alas whichever poor Chinese fellow inhaled heavy metals and pcb dust in the factory making this did so in vain, it did nuffink.

Which left me faffing with the original keys again. I got a glimmer of red light acknowledgment in car from each fob but it was hit and miss and the button travel/contact seemed poor.

I solved this with an advanced cellulose based contact improver* and managed to get one fob working completely - lock/unlock/boot/lights!

The other will do lights if you work it about a bit for long enough but for lock/unlock I think the contacts are done in.

Anyhoo - It now works so all is good!


* May have been half of a folded up pay and display ticket to give the pcb a bit more resistance to flex when the button is pressed.

You can't rush things in a Jaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaag. I like how when you hit demist it takes about 2secs to arrange all the flaps before the fan speeds up.

Cheers, one of mine too. I think it'll be staying a while.

Took Mrs ODM to the hospital this morning and dropped her off without really realising I was in a land barge.

Decided to give a three* point turn a try and discovered those crafty jag designers had thought of this exact scenario.

But what if they need to turn around and there’s a railing?

Preposterously long low nose will sort it boss...The Jag nose is so low even though I borrowed a bit of pavement to help the turn, the nose slotted neatly beneath the railing so only a nine point turn ensued.

Jag giving me full ownership experience as drive home was interspersed with on/off tail lamp failure message.

Finding it a lazily brisk barge, biggest issue is the footwell, it feels like you’ve put both feet in the same sock, it’s that tight in there.

Nothing serious, I hope.

Thankfully not, just some routine-ish checkup stuff.

Just for future info, those battery numbers refer to the diameter and the thickness.

A 2032 would be 20mm diameter and 3.2mm thick.
A 2016 is 1.6mm thick

And so on...

Indeed...weirdly in some bizzaro branding idea, Duracell confusingly brad their CRs as DL2032, DL2016, etc.
