You can get the ignition on with SDD without a paired or functional key fob. It will log this happened on ECM.That's all well and good if you can get the ignition on. You won't be able to communicate with any modules if they're not powered up.
And it seems he can't get the ignition on.
Brilliant this, sounds very similar- Iive just spoken to the dealer and the specialists who both said, ooh big job will have to replace the cjb blah blah blah give us your money! Surely someone can do this outside of them?Hello. Here is my expierience with front CJB repair on facelift X250. The problem was that car lost all keys after disconnecting battery. No central locking, no ignition. I rewrite keys with sdd, car starts, but windshild washer goes out. SDD shows me error u3002-81. Also, there were no VIN in...www.jaginfo.org
If you see key fob not found message, It should be something to do with keyless entry module or cjb. Or as suggested communication between them. Watch below video. It’s almost the same car as XF in terms of electronics. PAM and KVM modules are exactly in that corner on XF. Worth a check.Gents ive just spoken to a garage called Tim Revetts, who asked me to see if the steering wheel moved, I checked and yes it does, like there is no steering lock - He reckons its a steering lock/security issue and that is whats causing my issues, can anyone corroborate this?
So it wasn't locked and now it is?Gents ive just spoken to a garage called Tim Revetts, who asked me to see if the steering wheel moved, I checked and yes it does, like there is no steering lock
No, It wasnt locked, and its still not locked, but thats the warning message on the dash.So it wasn't locked and now it is?
Now that you have ignition try and read the codes. VIM is the steering column lock.
