Hello and Welcome -

My name is MIKE , Im happy to help / advise you .

The X type has a special method wherby you can force the radio to work, without input of the original code - This workjs with 99% of the X types - so, do the following:

Enter any code 3 times so that the display shows "PLEASE WAIT".. just a randomn 4 digit code...

Then - when you have Please Wait on the screen, Simultaneously press the buttons, ">>" "PTY" "A.MEM" - It should only take a few seconds and the radio turns will come on and be ok from there.

If you have any problems or , If there is anything more you need or would like to discuss - by all means get back to me and we can carry on with other methods for you.

>> Meantime >>>> Please do click on the "OK/ Excellent ratings" for me - Thank you in advance for that...

You can and are most welcome to get back to me anytime you might need - clicking the OK ratings does not close you out at all..

Kind Rgds, MIKE.

Hello again Noah -

Thank you for your reply.

Jaguar dealers do not advertise the fact that you can get your X type radio working again in the way that I told you - indeed, some even deny its possible - for obvious reasons - they want you to pay them for the "service" of code retrieval.

All the X types have the buttons that I mentioned to you , then what I outlined will work. The trick is to be sure , as I mentioned, to press the buttons simultaneously.. and again, it will work..so I do not see why you have had any problems with that at all..

There is no reason at all that a Jaguar dealer would need to even have your car in - for any length of time to sort the radio code for you - let alone need it until Friday - unless of course you are having other work fone.. they can get you the code for the radio from their database with the VIN - even over the telephone.

Given that I replied to your question with correct information, I would appreciate your honouring your good faith deposit by clicking on the "OK ratings" so that I am credited for my time at least - I thank you Noah once again in advance in anticipation -

Kind Rgds, MIKE.
