I've got a 1999 XJ8 S which has been parked for almost a year because of various reasons including lockdowns. It won't start. I've changed the starter motor, put in a brand new battery, but the engine appears to be immobilised. Would anyone know how to reset the immobiliser please?

Welcome. You might want to ask the members of the technical forum for your car, which can be found here:


As far as I know, this may require the use of dealer level software (IDS) in order to reset the immobilizer. Other high end diagnostic tools, a Snap-On Solus for example, may be able to do this as well.
