Question about 1997 Jaguar XK8

Open Question

ABS LIGHT STAYS ON

I have a 1998 Vanden Plas. I am the second owner, it was in beautiful condition, other than after a few months I had to replace the rotors.I picked up the car after hours and driving home my ABS light came on and will not go off. I have 113 thousand miles on the car. This morning, I let my husband drive my car to work and he was driving down the interstate and the car lost it power. He coasted off the road, turned the key off, started it again and it ran fine. It never has done this before. Thanks for your help. P.S. The air conditioning has been great, but when we tunred it on this year, no cool air.

SOURCE: 1988 Jaguar Vanden replace headlight

What you need to do is remove the 2 screws on the top bezel from inside the engine bay, then underneath the outer corner of the plastic headlamp surround there is a philips screw, (put your head under neath car near from wheel) loosen the screw, do not remove it, now the headlamp plastic bezel/surround will come free enough so you can get a philips screwdriver in through the middle of the headlamp surround, there is a chrome retaining ring holding the headlamp in place, loosen the 3 philips screws (do not remove) The retaining ring will rotate and you can slide the ring out from the outer edge of the headlamp surround. The headlamp will then come out throught the middle of the surround, disconnect the 3 pin multiplug and reverse process for install.

SOURCE: leaking valve covers, 2000 jaguar vanden plas supercharged

no there is'nt enough pressure underneath to make it leak try tighting up the valve cover bolts or just getting a new gasket about a $6.00 to $10.00 dollar fix depending on where you go

I've had the same problem on my 2001. It turned out to be the battery. Apparently the voltage had dropped to the point that the computer began to malfunction. I'd first go to a battery shop and have it checked under load before looking for other solutions.

SOURCE: air conditioning isn't cooling at red lights.

Sounds like it is low on freon. I'd throw another can in itif pressure is down.

you have bad valve seals again and it is possible that the valve guides are bad ( to much play ) i worked for Jaguar 13 years and i have done 100's of these and very few needed guides it sound like the seals where not done correctly at the last repair.

2004 Jaguar, Vaden Plaus,car just quit running going down the road. Had to have it towed home Won't start,turns over, just won't start,says Restricted Performance.


Sounds like it is some type of 'limp home' mode.
It could be anything. It might be as simple as a bad Fuel Pump Relay. When you turn the Key to the ON position (not Start) can you hear a little buzz for about 1 second? That would be your fuel pump running. You need to see if the engine is getting gas and spark.

How do i reset the engine control module in my 1995 jaguar vanden plas 4.0 will this reset ALL setings because i think this car needs it had 3 owners and cant seem to get memory and othe little things.


I'm not sure what you mean by "reset" but have a look for an OBDII / EOBD AUTO SCANNER (there's usually one or two on ebay.) Is that the sort of job you want to do?
