Question about 1999 Jaguar XJ

1 Answer

Windshield wipers stop whenever and wherever they want to.

1999 Jaguar xj8 - Wipers don't start on their own, but stop about every 15 seconds. They start again if you move to a different speed, and stop in about 15 seconds. If you turn the ignition off while the wipers are on the wipers continue until they want to stop.

This is the park switch in the motor, try prising the top off the motor gently, it will only come off so far as wires will stop you, clean grease away from micro switch then spray with wd40.
if this fails new motor I am afraid

How do you install windshield wipers on a 2005 jaguar xj8l


The blades will slide either direction once you remove the locking pin, and make sure you disconnect the washer jet line from the assembly first,then raise the washer arms,remove the lock pin or fasciners.This will allow you to pull the blade free ..keep me posted

To remove the protector, lift the wiper blade and pull the crimped end as shown in Illustration 2.

The windshield wipers do not work on my Jaguar XJR 2002. Could be the fuse but i do not know which fuse it is as i do not have an owners manual. Maybe the motor is bad, but I wanted to check the fuse...


I have a 1999 XJ8. Same setup as yours, with very minor differences. I had the same problem, turned out NOT to be fuse, OR bad relays, OR wiper motor, OR Body Processor Module. It was simply a loose connection at the body processor module below the Glovebox. I Literally jiggled the wires, and it started working again, and has been ever since. I have the Shop Manual, Technical ability, and Tools available to test all of the circuits involved, and went forth with printing out the wiring diagrams, and step by step eliminated each, until I decided to give the connection a jiggle, JUST BEFORE replacing the Body Processor Module (which would have been expensive)

Test 1:
Try the jiggle trick. Should be able to access harness just below, and behind the left of the glovebox. touch around up there, but don't be a brute, as you MAY break stuff.

Test 2:
Check Fuse under hood, (#22) Should be a 30A fuse

Test 3:
Swap the relays located on the drivers side, just behind the radiator. One is for Wiper motor run, the other is for wiper motor high speed.

Test 4: Jumper Pin 3 & 5 on the LEFT relay (drivers left) (please remove relay first). This should turn the wipers on, regardless of whether or not the computer is telling it to run. If wiper does not turn on, check fuse, or replace wiper motor.

That's all I've got.... Hopefully this works for you.

1999 F150 WIndshield wipers, dome light and side window controls not working


i just had the same problem with my f 150 ( 1999), my wipers, washer fluid pump, dome light, door chime stopped, I went thur the manuals, Checked appropated fuses, even changed wiper motor, (nothing worked) out of much internet checking, talking to mechanics, I got frustrated, I started pulling all the fuses under the dash,, I pulled # 15 ,a 5 amp fuse, which has nothing to do with the wipers eletronics, it was a good fuse, when i put it back in, everything came back and working fine. nearest i can figure it was either loose or a dirty contact.

#15 fuse (5 amps) on my box is for : stop lamp switch,( speed control,brake shift interlock,ABS, pcm module inputs.gem module,RABS test connector)
this was just blind luck, maybe it will help you.
