What are the results of the diagnostics? If you do not have the correct PCM computer it will not communicate with the anti theft. did you replace the '04 x type engine with the correct year PCM that's the cars computer it needs to match the cars year and be programed for the Jaguar x type 2004 car. This is all basic electronics and computer programing / flashing same as firmware where on any computer. If you don't know how, find a service center that has the Ford / Jaguar Scan tool IDS-VCM
