Artielou, I assume that you've checked the fuse panel in the passenger compartment. There is a fuse and relay panel under the hood in the engine compartment. Get a 12 volt test light or multimeter and start tracing the lines from the master panel under the hood to the panel inside until you find the broken conection or blown fuse. Try to have as much patience as possible in that electrical systems sometimes have a mind of their own. Good Luck, quicbric (the volvo man)

I JUST GOT A 98 CATERA , IT DIDN'T HAVE A RADIO IN IT , SO I ORDERED ONE OFF EBAY ,PUT IT IN ,TOOK TO DEALER TO HAVE IT UNLOCKED & PROGRAMED , AND IT COMES ON ,SHOWS THE STATIONS & THE CLOCK WORKS...


If the system you bought is marked BOSE, it does not have any onboard amplifier power. The only powered radios for the Catera are units which only have AM/FM/Tape, all the CD units are Bose systems which used separate amps mounted on a tray in the trunk.

I have A 1998 XK8. The radio will rarely switch on to demand but instead switches itself on a while into the journey.It sometimes switches off intermidently. I have noticed it will go off if we hit a bump...


has someone worked on the car in that area? either way it sounds like a loose connection in the rear of the radio, or worse in the radio, so as most car fires are caused by defective radios i would suggest the radio is removed and checked for the fault

I have a 2001 xk8 conv and there is no sound from the speakers yet the radio turns on and is fully functional. Any thoughts?


Has someone been working under the dash? It sounds (no pun intended) like the speakers are not connected to the radio. Have you checked the wiring to make sure that all is connected as it should be?

How do i get radio code for 98 xk8 ?


I just bought my 1998 XK8 and it still has the owners manual. It says that there was a code for the radio on a card that was issued with the car when it was purchased. (no card was in the book I recieved) It goes on to say that if you lose the card the only way to get the radio code is to contact a Jag dealer with proof of ownerhsip and they will provide a code.

Hope that helps.
