Jaguar S-Type Programming (Pairing) a Remote Key Fob

Some S-Type vehicles


Programming or pairing a new remote Key fob for the S Type is a little more of a problem than the X Type, it very much depends on the system fitted. If the keyfob has only three buttons it is likely that the process for the X Type will fail to work, other methods are slightly different is as follows:-
Should this fail after 2-3 attempts, then it is likely that the fob will need to be re-programmed by Jaguar.

1.)I would recommended that you ensure all key fobs are fitted with new batteries. ( Click here to see battery replacement guide).
