Customer Question

I have a Jaguar S-Type - 05 plate - 2.5l SE

I set the alarm with the fob but when I return to the car after more than about 5 minutes the fob will not unlock the car. If I use the key to unlock the car the horn sounds until I put the key in the ignition.

If I now remove the key from the ignition the fob will now lock and unlock the car - leaving the car for more than a few minutes though and the same problem returns.

It is the same if I use the spare key and fob.
