Question about 2004 Jaguar XJR-Series

1998 Jaguar XJR V8 not starting

My Jaguar XJR has always been ultra reliable but the time has come for some body repairs. I took it to the body shop who have removed the 2 front wings and the front bumper and now the car won't crank. All you get is a load of errors like gearbox fault, traction control fault, etc etc. The batter isn't flat. We have tried to reset the ecu by touching battery wires together to no avail. We have plugged in 2 different high end diagnostic systems and the vehicle won't talk to them. Can anyone please help?

SOURCE: Gearbox fault of Jaguar S Type

unfortunately when that code, and that gear box fault light comes on, its pretty much game over for the transmission. It only a matter of time before performance of the transmission gets worse and worse. BUT that transmission is VERY easy to replace, i would check out a few trustworthy independent shops to give you a better price! I am usually a die-hard dealership, having been working at this jaguar land rover dealership for the last 2 years, but you are pretty much for sure going to be a cheaper price on the labor and like i said it is a pretty easy task.

My only precaution MAKE SURE IF YOU GETTING A USED TRANSMISSION THAT YOU GET SOME TYPE OF WARRANTY ON IT. Too many times have I seen customers loose thousands of dollars paying someone to put a used engine or transmission and have it fail almost right away.

SOURCE: Engine won't start on Jaguar XJ8 Vandenplas TRAC NOT AVAILABLE

hey blackdiam522,
First did you have a check engine light, and do you know what the code was if you did?

Ok, the traction control not available isnt goin to affect the car from starting.During my year of a jaguar tech the most common for a crank, no start is a flooded engine. Now the two most causes for a flooded engine on these jags are 1. the weather is just super cold and all the own does is keep cranking the car to try to get to start. 2. A lot of short trip, a lot of city driving, 15 mins or less.

When you get something like this, a no start crank, you have to pump the gas pedal really fast, like your starting an oil muscle car. this forces more air into the engine.

when this no start happend u could get all these codes, what i maybe would recommend is a tune up, and some highway driving every once and a while to kept this from happening again, hopefully this helps, thanks.

I have a 2002 X type (2 litre. done 44000 miles), dash showed gear box problem, (red circle light up). I pulled out and turned the engine off. 5 minutes later turned the engine on. The engine running but the car would not drive either in drive or reverse. Turned the engine off again and on the car driving but not much power. The care is taken to the Jag. dealer and told is misfiring + some gear box faults. Suggesting to change some coils and see (cost about £200+). also possible need to change the gear box costing about £2500+. Please advice. Shall I go ahead with the repair? Should I part exchange.

SOURCE: Que significa GEARBOX ENGINE SYSTEM FAULT esto

Significa "FALLA EN LA CAJA DE CAMBIOS Y DEL MOTOR" si cambiaste la bateria es muy probable que no le hicieron un respaldo, no se puede desconectar al 100% la bateria, normalmente de corrije sola esa falla, si no acude con algun mecanico que tenga scanner y te reset la falla, la otra falla posible es el sensor de oxigeno, apaga el auto completamente y espera un minuto y reintenta, si la falla sigue puede ser cualquiera de las 2 que te dije, suerte!

Intermittent shut down of Jaguar XJR while running


The fault is intermittent - strikes without warning - and I guess if there are no error codes - so the fault is beyond the reach of the computer sensors - change your high tension coil.

When can I find instructions for changing the oil on my 2004 XJR?


Type in Jaguar service oil change on your brozer and as soon as you read two blogs that read the same or close enough, then get busy . Only the turbo cars have special directions. Starting off with a warm just shut off car, complete the work and restart the car right away is always good don't take your time as the oil can drain out of the bearings and then the oil oil pushing air though the system to the dry bearing equalls a dry start that can hurt any motor. As for getting the last little bit out, that little that stays in will mix with the new and be just as good if you are changing after a blown engine repair or other contanmination changing the oil more thean once is better than trying to get it all out and risk a dry start

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.
