#1 of 6 Programming Key Remote
Mar 23, 2007 (1:36 pm)
I have a 2002 Jaguar XJ Sport (XJ8). It did not come with a key remote. I purchased the proper remote and now I need to program it. Anybody know how that is accomplished short of going to the dealer (that is 80 miles away)?

you need to open your trunk, turn ignition only to 2nd notch (do not start) toggle your valet switch 4-5 times till you hear a chirp (this indicates the vehicle is now in learn mode)
Hold your remote button till lights flash and car will chirp once more to let you know remote has been set.

I have the exact same problem with a 1999 XK8, getting it to go into learn mode so I can program it to recognize a replacement remote that I just bought. It came with instructions, but I suspect they are not right ... does anybody know how to get it into learn mode? Help please and many thanks in advance!
