tried to fit replacement speedo cluster in a x type jag 2L v6 02 once fitted the car wont start
Hello, I hope the following assists you.
The cluster in the X type is linked to the immobiliser system, any replacement cluster needs to be programmed to the car so the immobiliser codes between the control modules match.
To programme the cluster requires the correct diagnostic tool so unfortunately unless you can find a suitably equipped independent dealer you'll need to go to your dealer for this.
I hope this helps, let me know if I can assist further and I'll reply as soon as I'm able to.
Best wishes,
