Somewhat embarrassingly, I have managed to "lose" both my x-type keys. The spare is in the house somewhere but I've no idea where and yesterday I've managed to misplace my car/house keys.

The car however is unlocked. So can I just get a second hand ignition barrel/door lock & keys and replace them, or do they need some kind of programming as well?

And is it just a standard mondeo barrell or a jag specific one?

Cheers,
Kev.

If you have the key number, you can get another metal blade cut easily, which will enable you to physically lock the car. The remote locking fobs can be programmed yourself to do the remote locking / unlocking. I think the problem is going to be the immobiliser on the key itself. That will need to be programmed to the car, or else it simply won't start, even if you've replaced the physical ignition lock. Your best bet is to call out a decent auto locksmith.

I have only one key fob and lost it over the weekend. I realized I need to invest in a spare set. What's the best way to go about this. I heard you can buy a FOB online for $250 and then take it to a dealer to program it. Any cheaper means? It's a 2007 XKR.

It's dealer or specialist only to programme the immobiliser.

Immobilisers can be programmed easily if you have the mongoose obd tool and the necessary software obtainable from the tinterwebs.


Or if someone near you has one which you could use?

how many rooms do you have? I'd go to room one go through every mm twice? go to room two and so on after each room shut door do not let anybody else near room? if fob is there you will find it. check every draw, cubboard, check all your clothes, pockets, socks inside shoes when found you can get second hand key fob and program the fob at least you will have a second working key fob. while looking check the car strip out boot seats glove box even look into the engine bay.

I once 'lost' my wallet complete with cards etc. Cut a long story short, I have one of those clothes hanger thingies in the bedroom and had slung my pants over this. When I went to the drawer where I normally keep my wallet...........not there! panic!! I had left my wallet in the back pocket of my pants which had fallen out and ended up tight against the skirting board.
Naturally I mentally re-traced my steps etc. rang the last place I could definitely remember using the wallet. I had to ring up and cancel cards etc. What a frantic high stress time.

The wallet was found when the bedroom was hoovered, if it had been physically possible I would have kicked myself repeatedly up the rear end!

Hope the keys turn up soon............................IP

Your solution is included in your question - you have a spare key in the house! Unless you live in a stately home, it does not take that long to systematically search the whole house, especially if you have wife/kids to help. My demented father mislaid his house keys "somewhere in the house". I found them within five minutes in a paper bag in the kitchen bread bin - easy!
