All I could find was for 1999, but it should be the same. But it seems you have already done this...or did you do it some other way? Press the power button on the radio and wait for the system to flash "CODE" on the display screen. Enter the factory radio code on the radio keypad. The radio will reset and unlock.

Are you putting in the right code? How do you know the code? On some of these coded radios, inputting the wrong code too many times will make the radio inoperative forever- I can't believe I'm writing this; is this true? Am I really in the 21st century? What a pain!

Found this on bluejag.co.uk----In the UK and Europe the radio is protected by a security code, If the battery voltage is interrupted or drops below 5V. After this the Radio will display 'CODE' and will not operate. You should have a card supplied with the car that has the security unlock code on it, failing this you will need to contact you dealership for the information. If you car was not purchased directly from a Jaguar Dealership they will need to obtain the number from the factory, using the VIN, there is normally a small charge for this. The security number should be entered using the numeric digits 1-9 on the preset program keypad. the radio will beep after the correct code is entered. after 3 failed attempts you will need to leave the radio on for at least 30 minutes before you can try again.

Something else found on that site---Display shows LOCKED 10 You will need your Unlock code for the radio (see above) With radio off press key 6 and hold while turning radio power on, continue to hold key 6. After 15 - 20 seconds the screen will say CODE Release key 6 then enter your unlock code
