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.
