If you have power at the battery and the fuses are ok, and their isn't any power to the fuses, trace the power to the ignition switch it might be bad. Trace the power into the switch with the key off and then with the ignition switch in accessory mode trace it cumming out of the switch,it should also supply power to the fuse block or ignition lights,head lights, radio, and windshield wipers, when it is in the accessory position.The ignition switch occasionally fails .

Check all leads coming from the battery with an ohm meter, should read zero, no resistance, make sure you do this test with the battery dis-conected otherwise you can burn out the meter or the fuse in the meter. if you need more help get back to me

How do you repair jaguar s type with a s701 code

I'm not familiar with a code that is s701, typical engine cades start with P. However, jag had a mfr recall numbered S701 on 98-99 xj models. What year and engine is your jag? Also try these links JAGUAR S701 1672 V 3/1/2002 1998 XJ series, WJCXV04.0AS3 A number of owners of 1998 through 1999 model year Jaguar XJR vehicles, 1983 50S 4444 1999 XK series XJCXV04.0AS3 equipped with an exhaust gas recirculation system, have been alerted to the 2461 50S presence of a possible problem by the sound of an exhaust leak and/or illumination of the MIL. It was established that the noise was being caused by exhaust gas escaping from the pipe that transfers exhaust gas from the exhaust manifold to the EGR valve. The escape was caused by a crack in the transfer pipe. Remedy: The design of the convolutions that provide for flexibility of the transfer pipe has been modified to improve the pipe's resistance to damage during installation and due to vibration. A heat sock has been added to provide a vibration damping medium for the pipe. Technical Service Bulletin S701 describes corrective action. Hope this helps

Jaguar xj sport 3.2 no spark or injector pulse

If ECU has crank signal and engine turns over, ECU should give injectors a pulse and trigger the ignition. If not ECU might be bad. You should check power and grounds going to ECU. There are usually multiple power and grounds going into ECU

My v8 sports JAGUAR sedan has deveped a valve or

cam follower is stuck ??maybe because its difficult to diagnose without hearing it,this is normally caused by not changing the oil often enough and using long life oil ??waste of space this stuff change oil every 6000 miles and filter every third oil change .Use the cheapest oil you can buy preferably a diesel turbo oil and this will keep the engine clean and free from gummy deposits.Also as its a big cat then you have to polish it every week to keep it purring and give it the leather cream on the seats.I look after my jag better than er indoors ,shes free to a good home
