Programming remote

I have a 2003 X-type and the remote was destroyedin the washing
machine(but it's nice and clean). The dealer wants $300 to replace and
reprogram. I know they are available on ebay but can it be programmed
at home, and if so how?

Thanks,

Don

Re: Programming remote

Yes - isn't that a real rip-off? You can get a 10 function TV remote
anywhere for about $20 but Jaguar charges $275 for one that only
accomplishes 4 functions. I had to replace my XJ8 remotes, and
decided I could do with one - $550 for 2? Give me a break!!!!!
I love my XJ8, but some things are a little too much to take.

Re: Programming remote

Yes but you are happy if your TV remote operates your neighbours TV, but its
not the same if you can open his car ! Bought a remote for £25 and
programming for my XK8 is easy. The XJ8 is the same, cheaper in the US.
X-type remotes are also available on e-bay and a little effort should net
you the programming instructions.
