SOURCE: jaguar xk8 auto, won't come out of park

your brake switch, the one that activates rear brake lights has probably failed. Press brakes, have someone see if brake lights turn on, if no then it is a brake light switch problem.

To: crg_912: 2001 XK8 V* Convertible with 28500 miles car stalls then ABS warning and Traction Control System warning comes on.Also, Complete Enine Failure message' Car goes into limp home mode. When...


Having a restoration shop and running several newer Jaguars I have seen similar situations. Intermittent multiple errors such as these can be caused by a low battery (or corroded connections) that "fool the computers". Also had a '99 XJ8 VDP have exactly the same issues over several months. Issue was a manufacturing fault in the sensors on the throttle body that caused the "limp home" mode - usually in stop and go traffic. Jaguar had an inspection and recall on the throttle bodies but that vehicle had gone through 3 different Jaguar dealers for service and none looked at TSB/Recall or performed the necessary checks on the throttle body. Tried cleaning the throttle several times (per Jaguar TSBs) but no change. Had to replace throttle body & problem solved (over 30,000 miles since then). Recommend making sure all air connections to throttle are clean and open and cleaning the throttle area to see if that helps.

On newer Jaguars (and other Al bodied cars) similar problems occur when the "ground" connections to the body become poor (usually through corrosion but sometimes through collisions). Connections may look perfectly normal but have high resistance. Careful when working with the connections - the posts are usually very loosely fastened to the bodies. Good luck.

What is the function of the button near the auto transmission gear with writing c and s


It stands for "Sport" and Comfort", it changes the way the transmission shifts. Read a more detailed description below.

In C, the transmission starts from a stop in 2nd gear unless the kick down switch is activated (pedal to floor from standing start). The transmission will shift at lower RPM's. This is used for everyday driving. The S mode will cause the transmission to start in 1st gear regardless of pedal position and shift at higher rpm. This button has NO effect on suspension, Mercedes have separate suspension control switches.
If this helped please rate my help.

My Drivers door window will not auto drop when i open the drivers door, but will operate normally by the window up and down switch?


If the driver's side window is supposed to drop auto-
matically,when you open the door.I'd suspect the
tiny switch on the lower section of the door,which
should also operate your interior lights,is either loose,
or not working properly. Open the door,and find the
little push button switch,and operate it manually with
your finger. If the window operates properly,the switch
isn't making full contact with the door jamb.If it does
not work at all,it might just be bad,and need replacing. Good luck.

I had a similar problem with my 1997 XK8. Apparently the transmission will not last much more than 100,000 miles. You need to replace the clutch in the transmission - cost between $2,500 and $4,000.
