Question about 2000 Jaguar S-Type

Ignition Electrical Short---I Think?

Help my 2000 Jaguar S-Type 3.0
1. Radio will not turn off after vehicle is turned off. I also pulled the fuse and radio remains on
2. Driver seat pre-set mode does not always work.
3. Dust cover (i think that is what it is called) in the ignition switch has fallen in the ignition or tumbler.
Could the ignition have caused the short? What is the exact part that needs to be replaced?

If you know how, pull the radio and see if it has a seperate fuse on the back, not sure if yours has it or not, some do. My radio had to be replaced where the logic board inside the radio went band and would not turn off or on, gd luck with it hope this helped

Bypass the theft deterrent module


The security light is a indicator that one of the parts of the antitheft system is failing, this then disables parts of the car due to the antitheft thinking that the car is being stolen. You may have broken something while turning the ignition when trying to learn your key fob. Did you make sure to pull the radio fuse before trying the key fob process? A lot of GM's 2000 to 2004ish ran the antitheft thru the radio. Its really hard to tell. Here is a link that explains the anti theft system. A lot of information and some ways to get around the system.

Here is what i found for reprogramming your key fob remote

1. Be sure ignition is OFF.

2. Remove RADIO fuse from fuse box. Fuse will be number 17 and located at LH side of instrument panel.

3. Turn ignition from OFF to RUN 3 times within 5 seconds ending in the RUN position. Off is the position where you can remove your key and Run is the position shy of starting your vehicle (do not crank engine or start vehicle). Be sure you are turning the key from off to run quickly.

4. Doors will Lock and Unlock indicating entry into programming mode.

5. Hold Lock and Unlock at the same time on first remote for approximately 15 seconds. Vehicle will respond by locking and unlocking doors indicating successful programming.

6. Repeat step 5 for each additional remote including working remotes.

7. Switch ignition off. Replace RADIO fuse. Test all remotes.

Look in your owner manual for the 3 fuse box locations. It is similar to our Lincoln LS.

2000 Jaguar S-type. Changed passenger side ignition coils and broken exhaust tube on manifold. Now vehicle studders when starting and immediatly turn off. Can you help with this issue.


As a temporary fix you could try to reatach the pipe together as that will be a breather pipe and the car will not idle correctly as there is now a large air leak

Other than that you will have to buy a new tube

Can anyone tell me if there is a fuse behind the radio of a 1995 Jaguar XJ6? The radio has not worked for a long time and was wondering if it may be a fuse and would like to check. Problem is that it is tricky to remove and do not want to do it unless I know there is a fuse there. Cheers, Jaimie.

2000 Jaguar S-Type Tail Lamp Failed


I also have a 2000 Jaguar S type. I am having this same problem. I replaced the old bulbs with new bulbs. Look at the new bulbs you put it- did they fizz out immediately after you put them in? I didnt notice at first, but mine did. Look at the filament part inside the glass.

I think my problem is a short. I am getting it looked at this weekend to see.
