To confirm that is is the fuel pump at issue here get a can of spray starting fluid and next time it won't fire up spray it into the air intake hose of the engine while someone cranks the engine over, if it lights right off then the pump may be the problem. A clogged fuel filter may cause loss of power but seldom if ever a no start.

SOURCE: 1988 Jaguar Vanden replace headlight

What you need to do is remove the 2 screws on the top bezel from inside the engine bay, then underneath the outer corner of the plastic headlamp surround there is a philips screw, (put your head under neath car near from wheel) loosen the screw, do not remove it, now the headlamp plastic bezel/surround will come free enough so you can get a philips screwdriver in through the middle of the headlamp surround, there is a chrome retaining ring holding the headlamp in place, loosen the 3 philips screws (do not remove) The retaining ring will rotate and you can slide the ring out from the outer edge of the headlamp surround. The headlamp will then come out throught the middle of the surround, disconnect the 3 pin multiplug and reverse process for install.

SOURCE: How do i disable valet mode om a 98 jaguar vanden

Try inserting the key into the drivers door lock and try centrally locking and unlocking all the doors a few times. If this does not reset the valet function try using the key in the drivers door lock and pressing the fob at the same time as locking and unlocking the doors. Even with valet mode engaged you should be able to access the trunk by physically inserting the key into the trunk lock.

Testimonial: "it was really helpful and the trunk yea i was able to open with the key but it still doesn't remove the valet all is doing is not keep sunroof open "

2004 Jaguar, Vaden Plaus,car just quit running going down the road. Had to have it towed home Won't start,turns over, just won't start,says Restricted Performance.


Sounds like it is some type of 'limp home' mode.
It could be anything. It might be as simple as a bad Fuel Pump Relay. When you turn the Key to the ON position (not Start) can you hear a little buzz for about 1 second? That would be your fuel pump running. You need to see if the engine is getting gas and spark.

How to do a timing change on 2001 Jaguar Vanden Plas


Timing is going to be non-adjustable as far as the ignition is concerned. Are you refering to the timing chain? If so, this "should" be good for the life of the engine. If there is a performance issue, I can help diagnose it. Let me know and I will continue to help.

2000 xj8 vanden plas was running fine parked it in my garage for the weekend and on Monday am turned the key and it spun but no crank...battery fine...help help


I have had the same situation with the 2000 VP. It eventually starts after several minutes. (Be careful not to over-crank the starter or it will overheat.) The engine starts very rough, smoky and sounds awful. Keep the accelerator at a point where the engine "catches". I suspect the problem is not electrical, but fuel injector / supply system. Perhaps a dirty fuel filter, etc. This has happened ONLY when the car has sat unused for two to three days. I have yet to ask my mechanic.

Welcome to jaguar ownership, thats a known issue w/ jaguar, the fuel pump doesnt get actuated on the first crank, however on the second it does fine. I ended up just jogging the ignition on and off before starting, then cranking the engine. car starts every time with that method.
