When ignition is at auxiliary position should it run through system check, or is auxiliary the position just before but that after key in out position.
I have tried both without success, my ignition has a key in our position, then like a short throw to resting position, then a position that has system check, and finally start.
Also, I have been leaving my working FOB attached to the key when in the ignition while trying to program new one.

Ha, now here's a valuable tip for ya, found after several days worth attempt without success, check to make sure new FOB battery is not upside down !!

After checking I found my battery had been installed the wrong way and therefore nothing I tried would work, after flipping it programed first time just fine and works great :-)

I bought these a while back in anticipation of adding another key, but (as per post 3308 in "what did you do to your X308 today") I was fortunate enough to gain an original 3rd key and fob, and so ended up not needing them. But I am curious if they are truly compatible with my Feb 2001 XJ8 VDP?

Does anyone know by the CWTWB1U322 number?

Does anyone know where I could get the rubber inserts for my OEM key fob? I just want to replace the worn off paint on the symbols thanks.

Depending on the model of your fob, you might be able to use the cheap Ford fobs and only use the rubber insert. The only problem is that the lock/unlock protrude just a tiny bit further than the originals, and you get a panic button instead of just a "light" button. I did it for the time being, just to see if it'd work, and until I can find some better replacement.

Just got one of these setup and it works flawlessly. It is indeed a "clicky" style button instead of the mushy contact switches on the old remotes. That's good, much more positive feel to know you actually pressed the button enough. Wish it was a bit bigger, the OEM one fits in the hand better, but beggars and choosers...

Just make sure to "cancel" (aka delete) the remote memory position recall for the new remote. With key in ignition, click the button labeled "memory" on the driver's door so the red LED lights up, and while that is lit, click any button on the remote twice. Car should make some funky bing noises to confirm, and now it will no longer try to recall seat position when you unlock with the new remote. I didn't realize this at first, and it tried to squish me into the steering wheel since a few of my seat potentiometers aren't working right.

...and the same item for the 2001-2003 XJ8 is only $13 - bargain!
