No there isn`t and if you try to ground the wrong wires it will blow the ECU,Any Eobd code reader can clear most codes in the engine management butforother systems you need Dedicated IDS jaguar software.

I need to be able to clear the code p0118 on my 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee. I have changed the coolant temp sensor and still cannot clear the fault code. must be cleared as car will not run correctly.

Usually with a sensor, I check the sensor wiring circuits first, before replacing the sensor. Unplug the connector for coolant temp sensor, start the engine, check resistance across sensor terminals as engine warms up, that resistance should change, does it?
The two wire connector, one wire is ref voltage, I believe 5 volts. the other wire is ground, mainly black in color. That ground is shared by many circuits. One of the other circuits could be causing you a problem?
You could have air in the system from replacing sensor? I'm just thinking out loud.

Where would you find all the ground wires

scattered throughout the vehicle. every system and sub system will have several, as well as chassis to motor grounds, and junction box grounds. i recommend purchasing a serve manual they are cheap (10-15 bucks) and will cover all sorts of good stuff, including wiring diagrams

My car have the code p1111 and p1646,which is that?

p1111 is nothing just letting you know system is ready after codes had been previously cleared, p1646 is 02 Sensor Control Malfuntion Bank 1 Upstream. Possible causes for p1646 o2 sensor went bad,short circuit to ground, short circuit to voltage, or open circuit. Code p1646 bank 1 sensor 1 o2 sensor control malfunction. Bank 1 is the rear bank and sensor 1 is the upstream sensor which you can see if you look between the engine inlet manifold and the brake booster(LHD). It is screwed into the manifold and has the grey connector next to the booster. You can check power to the heater on the white with green stripe wire. Any other testing will require a scan tool with datalogging capabilities. There were some VINs around your year that had their wires for that sensor twisted up by a faulty tool in the factory but you should be able to see that sort of damage easily.

Just failed smog with slightly high HC. the item that looks like a dstributor has a large rang of adjustment and looks like it can be adjusted. Keep in mind this is a 1996 jag xj6 with a crank trigger ign....

the car you have is the jag x300 series the main probs with this car are the lambda sensors and/ or the catalysts and you will get high emissions. to help sort this out you need someone with ids or wds software to help to check the fault codes or monitor the live data the ign timing is controlled by the ecu lower rh A post! its not adjustable

Code for radio

I have the same exact car and when I had to replace my battery I had to reset radio code also. Fortunately, I have the code card, but I didn't know that at first and I typed in a random code, and then it kind of "froze" it saying Searching for code or something to that sort. I called a Jag 800 number (any Jag 800 should be fine) and they told me the steps and my code, you will probably need a VIN #.
