Question about 1999 Jaguar XK8

1 Answer

Why can't you install an XK8 Convertable audio amp in an XK8 coupe

The radio and tape player and CD player all light up, but there is no sound. I see lots of XK8 amps from Convertables selling for a reasonable price, but the Coupe amps are very expensive and Harmon Karden makes it very clear that an amp from a convertable cannot be use in a coupe. Why is that?

Not sure about this ,could their be a seperate fuse for the amplifier ? or one inside it even--- have the wires broke inside the multiconnector .I have a 94 XJ sovereign and their is no amp in this model that i know of as i have had all the seats out when fitting the recovered headlining and having the front drivers seat repaired.Mine has a radio cassete in the front and a CD player in the trunk or boot in proper english .But all joking aside if it has a amp under the back seat like the big jeep thing i repair for a neighbour then providing you understand the wiring then it cannot much of a job to wire one of these in from a different car where you can get one one from a scrapyard cheaply compared to jaguar spares which are well expensive.Look on the internet for david manners jaguar spares UK ,i have found this company very good when ordering spares that are virtualy unobtainable here in spain so weither thay have a amp for your car i dont know but iam currently restoring a XJS V12 1989 for a friend and doing the paperwork to import it onto a historic plate here in spain and i can say i havent even look at the stereo to be honest.Take the amp out and ask a local TV repair man to have a have a look and the older the repair man the more experiance they will have with solid state transistor circuits and may be able to fit new output trannies if they are blown .Iam at the jaguar owners club meeting today so i will ask any owners if they know of a amp in these vehicles ,i dont know everything about every make of model of car on the road i admit it but if their is a way i can fix things i will so be a bit patient and ask around as iam sure their will be a owners club in your neck of the woods ,look on www.jec.org ,if you look at spain you will see me in one of the group pics iam the tall ugly one at the back ---

Have a 02 park avenue an tha radio comes on cd player and tape player works but no sound coming from tha speakers whats tha problem


These cars have an Amplifier to run the speakers. The amp is normally in the truck between the rear 6x9 speakers. The amp is probably fried. You can buy bypass wire harnesses on Ebay that will bypass the failing amp, or simply get a new one.

My 2002 ml 320 says no cd player installed when I press the cd button, it worked yesterday and for some reason it will not work, Any suggestions on how to fix it, the radio comes on but there is no sound...


try resetting the cd player in cargo compartment. you may have to loosen the screws holding the cd player in place to access the plug connector on the cd player. Most likely though it sounds like the fiber optic ring is down. which could be caused by any of the audio components. e.g. comand unit (radio), cd player, sound amp, tele-aid, navigation processor.

CD Player for 1998 Mercury Mystique


I just bought the same car recently and my son installed a cd/satellite/radio player into it with no problems. A high-end one that he took out of one of his cars. He's an audio freak that works in a high-performance car accessory shop. The only thing extra he had to install was some kind of wiring adapter to mate it with the existing factory radio harness. It only cost a few bucks. I think about $15.00. And there was no worries about wattage or anything else. Been using the player for about six-weeks now with no problems. If you remind me, I'll ask him about that wiring adapter....
