Question about 1995 Jaguar XJ6
Where do I find my radio code and how Do I input it. 2nd, my air conditioning stopped working when I received a fuel fail 69 code. Please help.
To remove the radio: Remove the ashtray by raising the armrest cover and removing the two screws at the rear of the ashtray. Slide the ashtray back and then lift it out. Be careful of the two front tabs, as you don't want to break them. Reach below the wood console, where the ashtray front tabs were inserted. Loosen and remove the two wing nuts. With a small, long flat bladed screwdriver, pry out the leather shifter surround. The leather shifter surround has a center chrome retaining ring, the leather surround, and then finally a black plastic surround. The chrome retaining ring has 3-4 tabs which are locked in below the leather surround. It depends on the year of the Jaguar. Probably the 95 has three, but maybe four. They should be at the front and rear of the trim piece (2 front and 1 back, or 2 front and two back) but I've seen then on the sides. The point is, you have to be careful with the screwdriver and find the tabs. The screwdriver should be slid between the leather and the retainer. Pull upwards on the retainer gently, and as you loosen the tabs, it will come out. Remove the leather surround. Once the chrome retainer has been removed, it should be easy to work it out of the console. Loosen the black trim ring gently as it has tabs as well, but they are visible once the leather trim has been removed. Lift it upwards out of the wood trim and pull it to the side out of the way. You don't need to disconnect the wires, just lay the black trim to the side. Lift the rear of the wood console trim and gently, gently slide it back and up. It will try to hang on the leather console, and can be difficult. Patience is important, as the walnut on the ski slope cracks easy (really easy). Once the wood console trim (ski slope) is removed, you should have a row of screws up the side of the center control panel, where the radio and AC controls are. There are four to six on each side, depending on what Jaguar used at the time, as the 95 cars mechanically are somewhat of a blend of the XJ40 and the XJ300. Remove these screws, and note any spacers that were behind them. These spacers get lost quickly, and cause the ski slope to sit awkwardly on the console. The radio will slide forwards once these screws are removed. Remove the radio harness and the antenna lead. As the books say, assembly is reverse of removal.

The radio code should be on a sticker on the inside of the hood, drivers side closest to the windshield.
There is a white sticker with a barcode on, the last 4 digits are your radio code. i.e. 1234, just type on the radio 1234 using the 1-6 memory buttons.
Fuel Failure 69 has nothing to do with the a/c, this code usually comes on by putting the car into gear too fast, you can reset it by disconnecting the battery for about 45 seconds and finally the a/c, check to make sure the econ mode is not pressed (teardrops) as this shuts off the compressor so you get fresh air.
Hope this helps
And if your stick on the inside of the hood is worn or missing then the radio would need to be removed and you would have to get the serial number off it then call the dealer or let me have the serial number and I can get you the code.
