The details in these pages are for informative purposes only. If you wish to attempt any of these projects yourself, you do so at your own risk. Whilst these pages provide information as to how I carried out the various projects (on my 2002 Model Year Petrol RHD X-Type) the same may not always be applicable to your vehicle.
If attempting to carry out any of the retrofits on my site, please remember that you do so at your own risk. Please ensure you know what you are doing as this is not a support site. The information is only provided from my own personal experience. If you require any advice concerning upgrades, or anything else Jaguar related, then www.jaguarforum.com is a great place to go.
This Project is currently undergoing some work to add new content.
Three different phone modules were fitted during the lifetime of the X-Type.
Whilst the third option offers some slightly better features (the ability to pair multiple handsets) it also requires some additional hardware in regards to antennas/aerials which are not needed when using the second module.
If all you want is to pair your phone and have handsfree voice calls through your X-Type then this project is for you. If you want to pair multiple handsets to your system, then the later 'Black Box' phone module is what you need. However, please be aware that neither solution will give you Bluetooth audio streaming over your X-Type stereo. The implementation of Bluetooth only supports HFP (Hands-Free Protocol), whereas for audio streaming they would need to support A2DP. Remember, this technology was developed for the X-Type back in 2001-2003 when smartphones were in their infancy and not quite so smart.
Whilst the BTUM is normally mounted under the centre console, and some X-Types were "pre-wired" for phone, it does require additional work to get access to by removing the centre console. It is acceptable to keep the BTUM in the boot, fixed to the carpet lining behind the rear seat and ignoring any pre-installed phone cabling.. Two plugs do need to be plugged in under the passenger side rear seat cushion.
If you have the correct PSE Phone Module (CM-NAP2K-PHONE) already installed and working, then you can simply plug in and fit the BTUM under the centre console. The cabling should be compatible without need for any modifications.
Compare the pins in the phone loom with the table below.
Only one pin will need to be moved from the 10-pin connector when converting a GSM harness to work with the BTUM. Pin 4 needs to move to Pin 1.
Six pins need to be moved around in the PSE connector, see table below:

Put the system into ‘discovery mode’ by selecting ##3#*# send
On phone, select ‘Jaguar’ and enter the pin 1313
