also the homelink garage door opener which is also not working
Are you sure it's not working ?
Or is it not compatible with your make of garage door ?
I ordered this too having just put in a wider door especially for the i-Pace (wouldn't fit through the old doors without retracting the mirrors).
Turns out the manufacturer I chose for the doors (UK) use electronics which are incompatible with the homelink system (USA).
Checked with JLR, Homelink and the door OEM and they all agree they won't work together without some kind of intermediate box of tricks translating between the mutually incompatible standards.
I had naively thought that any remote device could be programmed to talk any door, especially brand-new kit at both ends, nothing antique or outdated, and had not investigated before buying either.
The OEM said they could come and retro-fit somthing that would work for £1000 or so.
I just keep one of the remote fobs in the car !

Just in case anyone finds this thread while searching about home link and door openers in the U.K., I have a Chamberlain door opener in my garage and it works fine with the Jag door opener.

Just got in after driving the loaner up and down the bypass (unlit) a few times.
Sod's Law, hardly any traffic on the road at all at 12:30 to test the ADB on.
At least the high beam came on as expected and neither of the two lorries I encountered coming the other way (not much for a total of about 10 miles) seemed bothered by the fact that I didn't dip, though I can't exactly say I could see the shaping of the beam or detect vertical stripes, but on the limited evidence very happy with ADB keeping the rest of the way ahead illuminated unlike AHBA.
Just hope mine end up working the same way some time soon.

Yes i am quite sure, my nice car door opener in also not comapatible with homelink, so i bought a homelink universal 2-channel reciever (Model PR433-4) for 80 euro and wired it true potential free contact to my nice garage door opener. But unfortunaly i can't program this reciever with the homelink buttons in my rear mirror.

Hi as promised last weekend I told Terry60 I would take some pictures of my dashboard has he had requested, I think they are pretty self explanatory, I set the Lighting control to the various modes and took a picture showing The Green Auto Light, plus actuation sequence and VIN number

Yep, certainly looks like yours works! I wonder why your car appears to be the "chosen one"?

All MY19 were OK.
The loaner I'm driving is a 717 VIN, and it's fine too.

Update from my dealer (The engineering manager) a few minutes ago.

They've been unable to diagnose the cause of the fault. (N.B. They do acknowledge that it's not working), so they have involved JLR engineering.
JLR are, at this moment, accessing my car remotely and doing their own wireless diagnostics.

At the moment, doesn't look like I'll be collecting my car tomorrow, keep driving the loaner till further notice.
That's fine by me, putting mileage on somebody else's car. Do miss my HUD though. Confirms what a good idea it was to spec it.
Not till you've used one then lost it do you realize just how much easier it is to be totally in touch with the important facts.

I'll keep you updated

Ah!
That explains everything.
You've mis-reported your VIN
You're a 778.. VIN, right in the green block.

I'd better get back to the dealer and tell them that that outlier is spurious.

Sorry Terry, I only put the last digits of the VIN, so sorry about all the confusion I caused, good job I took picture of the full VIN number and posted it.
