Just a note on the stability control message, my current XJ8 and previous XJ6 occasionally turned on the traction light to go off only after a short drive and a restart. The xj8 seems to have issues after the stability control has been pushed a bit (burn out, power slide, anytime the ASC light flashes on) the next time the light seems to come on. As for the starting problem, i agree more information would be needed

Hello, It sounds as if you have a low voltage problem. Even though it turns over fine there may be problem with the positive cable at the battery. Remove the cables and clean them with baking soda and a toothbrush this should get you on your way. Please rate this answer, Thank you.

Need more information is needed. because stability control refers to the suspension control system on the vehicle and would have no relation to starting the vehicle. I know this is dumb but is there enough fuel in the car and can you hear the fuel pump turn on when you turn the key on!, If not maybe there is a computer failure that has affected the stability control system too.

STABILITY CONTROL FAILURE JAGUAR 3.2 V8


I had this problem with this vehicle due to a damaged ABS sensor on one of the wheels. It got damaged when a wheel bearing went bad. The amber ABS warning symbol also lights. Replacing the sensor cured the problem, something that can be done by an owner. They are expensive new but I got a cheap s/h one on eBay.
I currently have this problem again, but this time there is no servo assist on the brakes, a new and different symptom.

1999 jaguar xj8 with abs light on and stability control fail message, what is the problem with this? thanks.


abs modules work very hard. by the age of your car it seems that the abs module is packing up. the abs system has sensors on all four wheels that figures out braking, stability and control of the car when cornering. these do brake down over time and is part of the wear and tear side of things. you don't need to buy a new one. they do overhaul these things for much cheaper. your car magazines should advertize the fixing of these things or contact a scrapyard for a secondahand one. check if the abs sensors are not faulty and replace them. do not go to the agents, they will rip you off. good luck

Failsafe engine mode light on. reasons why. xj308 v8 1998


My 1999 Jag XJ8 did the same thing when the cruise control was activated (red button by the gear shift), but I wasn't actually using the cruise control. I deactivated the cruise control and the fail safe message no longer appears.

Stability control fail Jaguar XJ8


this may sound crazy but what sort of fuel are you running? Try filling the car with premium 98 octane and run it - if you are running inferior grade or dirty fuel the throttle body sensors will register a differential in the burn/energy and throw a fault. The bad news is that a faulty throttle body will cause the same problem and cost a fortune to replace.

Jaguar codes


thats interesting, the pecus lighting up on your dash means a control module wasnt fully programed, or in the process of being programed. ive only seen that pecus warning light once when a module failed to download the proper information. The low oil light and this pecus fault are not related.

The only way to get that light off is to bring it to a jaguar dealership.

In my case went this happened to me i was performing a recall that had me go though this download process. Now, if this problem applies to the recall then jaguar will pay for the repair and all you have to pay for is the diagnosis fee which is different with any dealership.

You can check on-line, for have the dealership look to see if their are any recalls on your vehicle.
