Default Radio code?

I got my '89 XJS today (love it!), however the battery was dead and needed to be charged. As such, the radio has reset and won't work. It just says "code" on the screen when you turn it on. I assume this is an anti-theft feature and I need to enter a code to unlock it, but how do I know what the code is and how to enter it?

The radio code is a numerical five digit code and it is shown on a small book that is part of the original purchase with the car. The small book is glove compartment size and contains owner information for the car like tire size, fuel requirements, jacking and towing and other stuff like that. Maybe Jaguar might have the code if you gave them the vehicle identification number. I had the little book when i bought my 87 Jaguar XJ6. My 88 XJS had a upgraded CD player and I don't need the code. Try Jaguar....just a suggestion.

Well, I finally got around to calling Jaguar today, and unfortunately my XJS is old enough that I need the serial number off the BACK of the radio. So I have to take it out to get it. I'm wondering id I should maybe just put in a new cd player instead, since I'm going to have to open up the dash anyway, but I'd like to keep everything original. Dangit!

Try this code: 44325

I have no idea if it'll work, but you probably haven't tryed it yet.


The "problem" I have with putting in a new radio in your XJS is that all the new radios have all those ridiculous LED lights and graphics and it looks like a Las Vegas billboard -- totally wrong in a classic like an XJS.

However, while you have it pulled out, you might consider installing the XM/Serius converter back there and going XM in your Jag. Thats what I did.

Welcome to the forum rich4920,

On every Jaguar I've had, the security code has been automatically accepted after entering the last digit on the numeric keypad. Are you sure you have the right code for your vehicle

Please follow this link New Member Area - Intro a MUST - Jaguar Forums - Jaguar Enthusiasts Forum to the New Member Area - Intro a MUST forum and post some info about yourself and your vehicle for all members to see. In return you'll get a proper welcome and some useful advice about posting to the forum.

Graham
