Jaguar Car Key Replacements and Lock Repairs
We are able to cut and program all replacement Jaguar keys and remote fobs.
FROM 1996 all Jaguar vehicles began to use transponder keys as pictured above (including remote fobs also).
Transponder keys were employed because only when the vehicle receives a certain unique code from the transponder inside the key will it be allowed to start.
The first car to use transponder keys was the Sovereign. The chip used was a Megamos fixed code, type 13 (or T5).
FROM 1999 Jaguar enhanced the technology further by using a rolling code transponder (or crypto chip). This made unauthorised duplication much more difficult.
The crypto chip used is a Texas 4D – type 60 (or T7).
REMOTE KEY FOBS: If you’re after a remote central locking fob (even if you don’t have one at present then we can provide this for you (providing the vehicle came with one when new).
KEYS LOCKED INSIDE? Amongst other ways of this happening, many cars will self-lock if left unlocked (often after just a minute!) as a security measure. Using non-destructive techniques we can get into your vehicle and get you up and running again, even outside office hours! Call us immediately.
BROKEN KEYS / KEY BROKE IN LOCK? Key extraction service available. Don’t stress, help is only a phone call away. Keys when keys are badly broken / worn down, solutions are at hand.
STOLEN KEYS: Had a key, or your only key stolen? If one’s gone missing or you’re unsure if someone else may have a copy then we can get this key deactivated from the vehicles memory , ensuring YOUR CAR STAYS IN YOUR HANDS! Lock changes or even re-coding existing locks where possible are also services we provide on site.
