I drove my 99 XK8 into my friends shop to have body work done, while the car was there the key was lost so I had a replacement key cut. I was informed by the dealer to bring the car in because the car would not start if the key was not programmed to the vehicle. I had the car towed to the dealer and was told they keep getting a error message when trying to connect to the car to program the key. The service tech recommended replacing the Body Processor Module and I did, still no luck same message when he tries to connect. The tech performed an electrical diagnostic from bumper to bumper and found that everything is recieving proper signal and working fine but he still cant get into the car via the OBD connector. The car has been @ the dealer for almost 3 weks now with no luck. A new key has been cut, Key fob issued, immobilization unit checked, KTM checked, and all other diagnostic attempts to the car can be achieved but when its time to connect to program key transponder. No luck. Please help. I will donate more to any tech that can solve this issue
have the same problem?
