Default No key Fob

Hello everyone,

I just purchased a "new" used X300 (1996 executive 3.2 manual trans, that belonged to the English Ambassy in Lisbon a few years ago, will post pics as soon as i take them).

This car came with only one key and no key fob,

I want to buy an ebay key fob (believe the LTQFM433) but after reading (i believe) all the posts and threads about key fob programming i have a big doubt regarding the "valet" button and the learning mode, i am trying to prepare very well because it might not work as i have no idea why there is no key fob, i have no indication that the fob will work after trying to programm.
People say we can leave the learning mode or by pressing the fob button or by turning on the light in the trunk.

My doubt is:

- I dont have a key fob so i cannot leave the learning mode this way.
- How is the "light" thing in the trunk, because as soon as i open it the light comes on so how can i leave the valet mode by turning the light on?

Thanks

1995-96 XJ6 cars:
1. Open trunk lid.
2. Open driver's door.
3. Turn ignition switch "ON" but do not start engine.
4. Rock valet switch (located in center console) 5 times; a single chirp and flash of the headlamps indicate the Security Locking Control Module has entered the "learning" mode.
5. Press the alarm/lock (larger) button of the first transmitter. This transmitter will be linked to position 1 of the seat/steering/mirror memory. A tone will confirm that the transmitter code was accepted. Note that the button must be pushed within 15 seconds or the module will exit the "learning" mode.
6. Rock valet switch once. Two short chirps will indicate the system is ready to accept a second transmitter. Press the arm/lock (larger) button of the second transmitter. Two tones will confirm the transmitter code was accepted.
7. Repeat steps 5 and 6 for up to a total of 5 transmitters. The second transmitter programmed will be linked to position 2; the third to position 3, and so forth. The number of confirmation chirps mentioned in step 6 will indicate the transmitter count (i.e. 3 chirps for third transmitter). Note that you must cycle through steps 5 and 6 five times regardless of the number of transmitters; if you have less than 5 transmitters just repeat using the last transmitter until 5 cycles have been finished.
8. Turn ignition off and close door and trunk. Test for proper operation of the seat/steering/mirror memories.

Keep in mind when purchasing a Fob of the 2 different frequencies stamped on the back

Thanks a lot! I guess that after finishing programming the car leaves valet mode then!

I notice you have specified 95-96 -do you know iif the procedure would be different for my 97 ?
(I'm thinking of getting a new fob like this..... https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/GENIUNE-S...-/372279776982

After further research I have another question - is it possible to programme a generic garage door 433MHz remote ?

just to leave feedback, bought an original FOB on ebay (super expensive) but paired it with the car. Only issue was that i had to press valet button a lot of times because when pressing only 5 times nothing happened.

Now i will buy a chinese copy fob to see if i can copy it from the original (prefer to keep the expensive one).

Also copied 2 keys with id13 chip on my local locksmith.
