Question about 1989 Jaguar XJ6
I got a replacement alternator from a 1990 xj6 it only had two wires connected to the alternator, one to the batt and one to the dump load mod. The 1989 has three, I have been looking for the reason the batt keeps going dead ( since I got it ). Want to know what the wiring should be, unsure because the previous owner did his own wiring. I have removed all of his jumpers and am trying to correct the wiring to oem
Kurt, If you are handy and can dissemble and solder, you can do this yourself, otherwise, you can send it off to a repair service that will do this for you.
If you wish to do this yourself, you'll have to take the shaver apart. There are two (2) small plastic caps on the bottom of the shaver that can be removed with a small pick or flatbladed screwdriver. Once those are out, you can unscrew the two screws that hold the shaver together and gently pry off the side panels. They have to be slid slightly down to release them from the main housing frame.
This will expose the internal circuit board and the rechargable batteries that need to be unsolded. You can then reinstall NEW rechargable batteries and solder them onto the PCB (printed circuit board). You can also purchase a complete internal PCB with the batteries and everything you need, you just swap out the electronics for the new one, although this costs about $39, while the batteries alone are much less.
Put the shell together and reinstall the retaining screws and caps and you're done. Let the shaver get a full charge before you start using it again, and it might take a couple of use and discharge cycles before the batteries will be able to take an optimal charge.
Here's a link to get the replacement batteries for your shaver. They also do the repair service, if you don't want to do it yourself.
Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Unless you have very good and unusual tools don't even attempt it.
There are 2 bolts in very difficult areas to reach, roughly above your feet when you are in driver's seat. One bolt unscrews to the front, the other unscrews to the back. One needs a combination of extensions and swivels to get at and only from being on a lift. The other one needs an extra long open-ended wrench and is only accessible from the top with great difficulty. Then if you can get them both off, remember that you will have to put them back in the same way, after you fight to get the old one out and the new one in while removing and attaching the electrical connections. Its worth an hour's labour to a jag mechanic who has done it many times and he will still curse you out on doing the job.
