I had the same issue with my 2001 XJ8 and ended up having to have the car rewired from the engine to the battery. I was charged about $300 from a independent automotive electrician. Unfortunately this was after having a new starter and alternator installed! I was told that there were 2 or 3 service bulletins on this issue from Jaguar.

Good luck on this one, it's very frustating and had my car in the shop for about 3 weeks trying to figure this one out.

There could be many reasons why the car won't start. If you are correct about the gas, and the injectors aren't clogged, Syphening out the old gas, adding fresh premium gas, and having a helper spray starting fluid in short bursts into the air filter intake while you turn the engine over should start the car. Good Luck.

My jaguar 2001 s-type cuts off when I sit at a stop light.


If the car starts again without trouble - it is probably an air leak on the inlet manifold or associated pipework. If the car is very 'lumpy'' then stops it could be a coil-pack or mass airflow assembly - also this fault sometimes triggers a gearbox fault warning as the engine and gearbox become out of sync. due to engine misfires.
The air leak fault will not always register in the fault code memory of the car whilst in its early stages. As the fault becomes greater - the engine will become hesitant - then stop. This is the time to spray leak detector spray around the pipes or manifold joints, as the spray gets 'sucked' into the leak and the engine note will change noticeably.
Hope this helps - good luck.

XJ8L would not start


You may have a gasket leaking oil to the engine cylinders. Once you got it started the oil burned off and the engine will run fine until the next time....
Unfortunately, on this car, it a VERY expensive problem to get fixed.
If the problem occurs again, be careful not to flood the engine. Try to get it running again, and take it in for a professional estimate and repair.

GEARBOX FAULT MESSAGE


i had the same problem with my s-type, when i went to jaguar dealer for diagnostic and they told me it was trans problem, need new trans and will cost me $4500 to fix it, so i think you will be better off looking for a salvage trans to put it in your car, it will cost you around $1500-$2500 including labor. i hope that will help some of you with gear box fault massage. oh try and find some one who knows a lot about jaguar before you send the car for trans repairs.

Fault code V01774 on a 1999 Jaguar xj8L


Hi Darrin

Try disconnecting the battery + & - terminals.

Turn the ignition key several times to erase the computers memory.

Reconect the battery + terminal then - and start the car.

Your fault code, will hopefully not return.

Good Luck !
