    When you say you can't start the car, does this mean you can't turn the key? Or you can turn the key, and the starter turns over but the engine won't 'start'?.



    Insert key into ignition cylinder, press hard on brake, simultaneaously pulling steering wheel hard counterclockwise and trying to turn on the ignition.

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

2007 Jag XK, engine light just came on at 18k miles. I believe this is a routine maintenance issue. How do I reset the light? If it is something major the light will come back on and I will schedule...


Sorry but this vehicle is a 2007 and as such only a dealer can put the service light out ,its to stop mechanics like myself from doing the job and if its not cleared with so many miles the car goes into limp mode ,sorry i cannot be of any help

Getting 64 jag engine running.


Don't take this the wrong way, but if the engine is not running now, you'd probably spend less time money if you put a small-block Chevy or Ford engine in it instead. It's a fairly common modification, I bet there's lots of information available on it, maybe even specific brackets and stuff for the swap.

If it was MY car, that's probably what I would do.

04 Jag xj8 set brake code is on---limped home


When this happens, usually you have to replace the Computer. There is a chance you just didn't reset it when you took to cables off. Remove them and tape or hold them together for 5minutes or longer. If it still does it, I would get a book and find out where the code is to lead you. With the obd it only gives you a starting point in the diagnosics. You may have air in your lines that need bled, a sensor out, or just plain adjustment of the cables. But it shouldn't go into limp home mode unless you lost your Engine Control Monitor. Oh, I didn't click the read more button. Check the E-brake cables. You may have run over something that hooked it and ripped it loose. The Jags can tell if the cable is too far out of adjustment. It's under the car, cable should go through the floor and run to the rear of the car and Y out to the rear wheels. Good luck.

Ignition but no start


I have a 94 xj6 jag and after a blow out the car will not start. I pulled over and turned the car off. When I fixed the blowout it will not start. I have lights, power windows, sunroof, radio and dash lights but when I turn the key nothing. I cant even get it out of drive in first position. The guages doesn't function either, but the dash lights will. Can some one please help me!!!
