    This circuit is easy to diagnose with a 12 volt test lamp. However, it is important to know the grouping of circuits and lamps so you'll know how much to check. For example, if the right rear tail lamp and the right license lamp are both inoperative it is important to know that they are on separate circuits. Here's the grouping, and each group it's own fuse and check unit.



    • L/F marker and L/F parklamp


    • R/F marker and R/F parklamp


    • L/R tail lamp and R/license


    • L/R marker and R/R marker


    • R/R tail lamp and L/license


    All of the above EXCEPT L/license and R/tail lamp receive voltage from the same source....red/slate wire at the lighting switch. If all of these lamps are inoperative then you can expect a problem well "upstream". The L/license and R/tail lamp receive voltage from the red/orange wire at the lighting switch.


    So, if one bulb within a group works it is safe to assume the the circuit is operational and the fault is with the bulb, socket, or wiring to that specific bulb. For example, if the right rear tail lamp works OK but the left license lamp does not, then you know that the power supply, fuse and bulb check unit for that group are OK and you can isolate the fault to the license bulb, socket, or wiring. Also remember to check the ground points....in each case easily tracable from the lamp....and ground wires, which are always black. You are looking for clean, tight connections.


    Speaking of connections, these circuits are full of bullet connectors which are prone to loosening and corrosion and are quite often the culprits when a lamp isn't working. If single lamps are acting up and you have known good bulbs, make sure to check, clean, and tighten your connectors. Bulb sockets, too, tend to gather dirt and corrosion. A good elctrical cleaning aerosol can be used or, after pulling the correct fuse, use some WD40 and steel wool....if your fingers are small enough ! In either case follow up with some dielectric grease or a dab of light oil for future protection.


    If both bulbs within a group are inop then you'll want to check the fuse for that group. It is often advised that fuses be summarily replaced as a fuse which appears good may actually be open or intermittant. Of course, you'll check that the contacts for the fuses are clean and secure.


    OK, assuming known good bulbs, good fuses, secure grounds, and clean connectors we'll delve into some easy circuit testing.



    1. Using your 12 volt test light, check the heavy brown wire at the light switch. It should have 12 volts at all time as it is direct battery feed from the left firewall junction post.


    2. With the switch "on", check that the red/slate wire and the red/orange wire have voltage. If no voltage here then there is an internal fault in the switch. If voltage is Ok at these wires.....


    3. Check for voltage at each of the bulb check units where the red/slate wire enters (or red/orange in the case of the L/license and right tail lamp). If voltge does not enter the check units then you have a wiring or connector fault between the switch and the check unit. If voltage is good at this point.....


    4. Check for voltage exiting the check units on the red wires. If no voltage on a red wire then the bulb check unit is "open" and needs replacement. If voltage is exiting the check unit OK, then....


    5. Check for voltage to the fuses, also on red wires. If no voltage to the fuse then you have a wiring fault between the fuse and the check unit. If voltage is good at both sides of the fuse but the lamp still does not operate then you have a wiring or connector fault between the fuse and the lamp.


    Incidentally, you'll notice that each bulb check unit has a white/slate wire. This wire on each unit goes the the bulb failure warning lamp and should have voltage only if a bulb is burned out.

    Or under the hood... Or passenger side kick panel... or drivers side kick panel. Not too many places to look.

    Owners manual may be a good starting point.

My brake lights arnt working


Sounds like you need a new brake switch which is located on the brake pedal under the dash. It is what send the signal to the rear brake light module.

You can pick one up at any jag dealer.

Good Luck!

95 jaguar xj6 no brake or reverse lights


Hi the Jaguar XJ6 works off a 12volt, negative earth.... Jauguar are a legend for electrical faults.... ok you need to do a voltage check/fault check on the system, remove the fuses from the associated problems, i.e the rear lights! place a volt metre over the contacts and there should be no voltage present! grab the wiring harness and move it side to side! if you see a rise in the volt metre then there is a short to the earth! this can be done through out the systen including switches.... i would personally check the earth contacts near he problem areas these corrode and you then get a short in the cicuit

Hope this helps.

My 1994 jaguar wont come out of park and has no brake lights


Check the brake light circuit. Either the fuse is blown or the brake switch is bad.

Ive turned of my jag in park mode, now i cant restart it


Does your dash light up to indicate you have a battery source or power? If yes you have power try starting it in neuatral or in another gear. If it starts in neatrual maybe your selector going bad. If it starts in other gears repair the shift selector. Three If no power indicated check fuses. four will motor crank or turn over if yes look for a drivability problem. If no final maybe bad ignition switch. Need to replace ignition switch. Probably time for service
