Question about 2004 Jaguar XJR-Series

2 Answers

The windshield wipers do not work on my Jaguar XJR 2002. Could be the fuse but i do not know which fuse it is as i do not have an owners manual. Maybe the motor is bad, but I wanted to check the fuse first. Can anyone help me identify which fuse corresponds to the windshield wiper motor? Thanks

I have a 1999 XJ8. Same setup as yours, with very minor differences. I had the same problem, turned out NOT to be fuse, OR bad relays, OR wiper motor, OR Body Processor Module. It was simply a loose connection at the body processor module below the Glovebox. I Literally jiggled the wires, and it started working again, and has been ever since. I have the Shop Manual, Technical ability, and Tools available to test all of the circuits involved, and went forth with printing out the wiring diagrams, and step by step eliminated each, until I decided to give the connection a jiggle, JUST BEFORE replacing the Body Processor Module (which would have been expensive)

Test 1:
Try the jiggle trick. Should be able to access harness just below, and behind the left of the glovebox. touch around up there, but don't be a brute, as you MAY break stuff.

Test 2:
Check Fuse under hood, (#22) Should be a 30A fuse

Test 3:
Swap the relays located on the drivers side, just behind the radiator. One is for Wiper motor run, the other is for wiper motor high speed.

Test 4: Jumper Pin 3 & 5 on the LEFT relay (drivers left) (please remove relay first). This should turn the wipers on, regardless of whether or not the computer is telling it to run. If wiper does not turn on, check fuse, or replace wiper motor.

That's all I've got.... Hopefully this works for you.

What fuse is for the back window windshield wiper


Owners manual will give fuse locations and identifications. These vehicles are notorious for having the wiper motors/pivot seize. Try turning on the wiper motor switch and try moving the wiper arm by hand with a little force in the direction of its travel. If wiper begins or starts to work, replacement of the motor will be necessary

try changing the wiper relay first and check out the fuses if all is good then the motor itself may have seized or the worm drive may be worn or broken check the toothed spline where the wiper blade attaches the splines may be smooth or broken which will stop the blades moving back and forth

Many cars of that period could be reset by some ignition key sequence.
Try switching from the off position to the on (not start) several times within 15-30 seconds.
It won't hurt anything and might turn off the light.
If the problem is still present that caused the light to go on the first time, it will likely come on again after you start the engine.

I hope the reason for that alarm light has been since corrected.

Some cars needed to have the battery disconnected for several minutes to cancel the memory contents.
Newer cars will not likely respnd to that since flash memory is now common which retains the error code even without power.
