Is it only the sdd software that is capable of doing the re-learn function for the central locking and keyless entry, or are there other softwares/tools that can do it? The garage disconnected the battery when they removed the ecu, the key still starts the car but none of the remote or keyless lock and unlock features work

You haven't said what year your car is, just an X250. On the facelift models, if the battery is disconnected without allowing the electrical systems and modules to fully shut down it is known to cause key, locking & starting issues or even fry the CJB.

bricking the ecu appears to not have happened...

Hopefully not, I was just highlighting the issue and reiterating the importance of having someone that knows what they are doing carrying out work on these cars.

the ecu wasn't fried on the map, I assume it went through the obd.
this looks like a case on 1 step forwards, three back.

They're not a jag specialist so I'm presuming their knowledge is pretty limited to be honest. The reason I ask if there are other softwares that can reset the locking system is so I can say to them, it can only be done with this software and if they don't have the ability to correct it I will take it to the nearest jag specialist and they can foot the bill for it. The car only went there initially because its a friend's garage and around the corner from home, I didn't want to risk driving it to a specialist with the condition it was in

Given yours is the facelift model and the known issues around battery removal, keys, central locking etc, which you are already beginning to experience, I would get the car to a Jag specialist asap who will have both the knowledge and correct software to rectify the problem. I wouldn't want someone who doesn't know what they are doing 'tinkering' with mine with such a potentially catastrophic outcome.

Yes, dpf is sorted, when they removed the dpf it appears its been replaced before, for a second hand unit by the look of the markings on it, car drives like a dream now though. Just the locking issue to fix and she's sorted. Well, I say sorted, she is due rear discs and pads but that's something I can do myself. I've contacted the most local jag specialist and they're claiming the car will need a new kvm module to fix the locking issue, but upon doing further research myself I'm not sure this is correct as there is relearn function that can be performed via sdd which corrects the issue, from what I understand the only time a new kvm is needed is if the locking issue is present and the car won't start

Glad the DPF issue is sorted, these cars don't usually give issues (mapping and coding aside) but as like any DPF equipped diesel, we see the occasional warning and owners asking what to do. Brake wise, members tend to favour EBC Redstuff pads, work well even when driven "spiritedly" with less brake dust and there's a good selection of makes & types available if you don't fancy the Reds. Brake judder is a known (and so far not fully understood) phenomena on the X250. Saw your car on the Modified Jaguars FB site, very smart looking (y) Post some pics here for members to enjoy, we like pics. Pop over the the New Members section and intro yourself and your car.
