The remote locking on my x type is not working so I have to

This answer was rated:

The remote locking on my x type is not working so I have to use the key. This is ok but for some reason in cold weather when I unlock the driver's door the offside rear door unlocks as well so I know the alarm is going to sound as soon as I open the driver door. Any ideas.

Dear customer, have you ever replaced the battery of the key fob?
Thanks in advance.

Customer: replied 8 days ago.
The battery was replaced about three years ago. I have never changed the key fob.

Dear customer, the symptoms the car is presenting in the sway of the operation of the control was because it was already needing a new battery.

The worst thing you have to do is to replace the battery of the control. The problem is that if the control ran out of full power you must reprogram it with your jaguar but for the year of your x type, it is very likely that you must do it through a diagnostic equipment If not, even replacing the battery the control could run out with the vehicle, but try first of all to replace the battery
