Question about Jaguar XK
Is your xk the all alloy model i suspect it must be at that age, the fuel senders are in the tank and the tank has to be removed to gain access. i think it a saddle tank which means it is formed to fit over the prop shaft so you will have to remove the prop shaft to get the tank out. whats the problem with the gauge? has i recall they have two sender units one in each side and a jet pump to transfer fuel one side to the other to balance the levels out, the instrument pack then calculates the two signals and drives the gauge to give a reading, you can check the fuel level signals what the instrument is receiving by holding in a button on the pack and turning on the ignition to go in to diagnostic mode and cycle through the information to see the fuel level readings the instrument pack is reading to help decide which sensor has gone down, they should be almost same, or remove both sensors and check with ohm meter. they also suffer from wiring problems with the wiring above the rear axle either poor connections/corrosion in the connector or wiring rubbed through on the rear subframe. hope this info is usefull

this could most likely be caused by a faulty seal, this can happen to even the most expensive cars, and even more common if the vehicle is driven in high humdity areas. hope this helps.

been there done that. i connected a set of wires to the battery on another car pulled the center rear seat cover off to expose the fuse panel, poped out a fuse and connected the hot from the other battery to the fuse and the ground from the other car to a grounding bolt right beside and bingo you have power and can pop the trunk.

Hi, the battery is at the rear of the trunk/boot compartment, remove the floor panel (lift handle and pull the panel out) then remove the luggage cover 9the soft "blind" that is moved when lowering the roof) this lifts backwards and up. There are four small round "knobs" at each corner or the vertical panel facing you at the rear of the compartment (the rear of the back seats) remove these by unscrewing counterclockwise (they then pull out) the vertical panel will now come free when pulled to reaveal the battery in the top left hand corner, it has security bolts on the front retaining bar and 10mm bolts on both terminals and the right hand safety retainer. (NB the positive terminal is on the right, the negative terminal on the left) I hope this helps, regards, Baz
