Customer Question

I have a Jaguar XJ8 1999. The battery went flat and after I had charged it every time I connected it to the car the alarm went off. I bought a new battery and the same thing is happening. I can't stop the alarm unless I disconnect the battery again. My fobs don't work so I have to use the key

Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

Shantal

Name is Greg,

 

My goal is to provide you with excellent service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back,

 

When you connect the battery to the car the immo system thinks you are stealing the car ,

When you have connected the battery you have to disarm the system with the keyfob remote switch , if you don't have the fob use the ignition key in the drivers door by locking then unlock this will disarm the system .

 

Should you need further assistance then please get back to me .
