Hi all I think the problem with the locking could be a body control module. has anyone had trouble with this before. I can get one but it will need programming to the car does this have to be done by the dealer.

No all you need is some with good knowledge of jaguar sdd, not sure if you buy a second hand one it can be programmed to your car and then there’s the issue with the kvm, you might need a new one of them too :(

PM @Onotole and ask him if he has knowledge of the X260.. he has recently helped me when my car had CJB issues, yes it costs but less than dealer and on the X250 he can reprogram a used one which dealers can't...

Hi Pete.
Did you have to buy a new BCM Module for yours.

Hi Pete.

We still haven't done everything yet but we are going to book it in to have it checked first to see if it is the module as the place we are thinking of taking it think it might be something else

Hi Pete, yes I did. I would have been quite happy with a second hand one and letting Onotole reprogram it but time was short and as the CJB/BCM is different in the Sportbrake to the saloon and I couldn't find a second hand one I had to bite the bullet on paying for a new one, Hey Ho...

I priced a new one for mine they wanted £438 so I'm going to have a go at it myself with the help of Onotole hopefully, I'm just waiting for the programmer from China
Hopefully all will go well
I didn'lt know Onotole would reprogram them for other people

£438 is quite a lot less than mine was, is yours a saloon Pete?

And, what specific problem/s does your car have?

You can check If the module has lost information with JLR SDD
That's how I found out that mine was the BCM
It needs reprogramming I have ordered a Xprog programmer to try it myself
With the help of Onotole hopefully I can do it.

Yes mine is the saloon I didn't go to the main dealers I got the price from a company that does keys and modules
The body control module has lost the Vin No and some other information that needs programming back in

Does it say key not found when try to turn ignition on.
Without putting the key in the slot ?

You can reprogram the CJB, I said that in the second of my posts that you quoted.

Oh and you can reprogram a second hand module
You need an external programmer
JLR SDD wont do it
SDD can reprogram the CJB, Onotole did it to mine when it 'forgot' everything. I then got a new one because a battery disconnect would have rendered it useless gain, as you say to do a 'permanent' fix would require an external programmer.
