Question about 1996 Jaguar Xj Series
I bought a 1996 3.2 jaguar xj6 sport.When I bought the car the remote alarm would both lock and open the car remotely.Now I can only open the car .I have to lock using the key.I have checked the remote itself the batteries seem OK.
I have checked the fuses all OK .The alarm is still working.The central locking switch on the car dashboard does not always work.The alarm beep is working (one beep to arm) (two beeps to unlock).Also the autolocking (when you drive away the car central locking automatically locks the car) is also not working but it was previously.
Your key FOB is bad and needs to be replaced. The auto locking could be a reset. has the car had the battery disconnected? If so, it will take about 70 miles of driving for it to reset.

It sounds like the module to the alarm in the car is going bad. the sensor that detects for jags is the tied into the dash speedometer so this will need to be swapped out by the dealer only. the module will also need reprogrammed and rechecked after the reprogramming.

Check the dimmer switch, they are known to fail. Play around with the knob by turning is and you should get your lights back, if not remove the steering column covers and spray electrical cleaner in the dimmer switch and just work it in. Last resort replace the dimmer switch.

my 1995 xj6 jaguar windshield wiper don't work, cannot locate the fuse for the wiper, as i do not have the owner manual to see which is the fuse for the wiper in the fuse box

you have a battery power drain. Remove one fuse at a time until you find which circuit it's in. This will take a while but it will find the problem and it's free.
