Open Question

2000 Jaguar S Type Left tail light does not work. The bulbs, fuse, and connections are good. Jaguar Repair garage performed a diagnostic test and said that "it must be the electronic control module" and that they could not repair or replace it. Could it be anything else?

take off the cover and replace them. if you have a volt/ohm meter you can put if on the car side and make sure you have voltage and the ohm meter on the buldb should give a 1 rating if its good. it would be the cheapest and easiest to just get a new bulb and see if it works then start checking fuses if its not the bulb.

Its most likely the coils and spark plugs, sometimes caused by oil leaking from the valve cover gasket. The coils deteriorate over time from engine heat and need to be replaced at 90-100k
Local garages don't have the Jaguar diagnostics terminal and are unable to do more than find basic error codes with a reader. Its important to get this fixed because it's causing damage to your caltalytic converters. They are expensive.

2000 lincoln continental signal and hazard blinking lights not blinking

Do you know what a lighting control module is ?
Turn Signal and Hazard Lamps The turn signal system consists of:
  • turn signal miniature bulbs (13465)
  • lighting control module
  • multi-function switch (13K359)
  • indicator bulbs in the virtual image instrument cluster (10849)
  • circuit wiring and circuit protection
Turn signal system operates as follows:
  • The multi-function switch is protected by fuse junction panel Fuse 3 (10A). This fuse is hot in RUN.
  • Circuits 104 (LB/O) and 105 (R/W) connect lighting control module to the left and right turn signal switches of the multi-function switch.
  • Ground is provided to the lighting control module and the turn signal miniature bulbs through Circuit 57 (BK).
  • Turn signal functions are performed by double filament bulbs in lamp assemblies located next to the headlamps.
  • The turn/hazard function utilizes the second filament of the appropriate bulb(s).
  • With the multi-function switch in the right turn position, power is supplied to the RH front and rear turn signal miniature bulbs and the RH turn indicator in the instrument cluster.
  • With the multi-function switch in the left turn position, power is supplied to the LH front and rear turn signal miniature bulbs and the LH turn indicator in the instrument cluster.
  • Do you know what diagnostic trouble codes are ?
Section 17-01: Lighting, Exterior 1997 Continental Workshop Manual DIAGNOSIS AND TESTING Procedure revision date: 07/29/1996 Turn Signal Lamps/Hazard Warning Flasher Lamps
Inspection and Verification
  1. Verify the customer's concern by operating the turn signal/hazard flasher lamps to duplicate the condition.
  1. Inspect to determine if one of the following mechanical or electrical concerns apply:

    VISUAL INSPECTION CHART Mechanical Electrical
    • Damaged multi-function switch.
    • Circuitry open/shorted.
    • Fuse junction panel fuses:
      • 1 (10A)
      • 3 (10A)
      • 7 (15A)
      • 13 (15A)
      • 19 (10A)
      • 20 (10A)
      • 25 (10A)
      • 31 (15A)
    • Power distribution box Fuse 16 (20A)
    • Bulb open.
  1. If inspection reveals an obvious concern that is readily serviced, correct the concern before continuing with Inspection and Verification.
  1. If a concern remains after the inspection, connect the Rotunda New Generation Star (NGS) Tester 007-00500 or equivalent to the data link connector (DLC) located beneath the instrument panel to perform DATA LINK DIAGNOSTICS test. If the NGS responds with NO RESPONSE/NOT EQUIPPED for the lighting control module, GO to Pinpoint Test CA. If the DATA LINK DIAGNOSTICS test is passed for the lighting control module, retrieve continuous DTCs and execute Self Test Diagnostics for the lighting control module to retrieve current DTCs.
  1. If self test is passed and no DTCs are retrieved, go to the Symptom Chart to continue diagnostics.
  1. If DTCs are retrieved, go to the Lighting Control Module (LCM) Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC) Index to continue diagnostics.
  1. If the lighting control module cannot be accessed by the NGS, go to Pinpoint Test CA.
Rotunda Service Bay Diagnostic System (SBDS®) 001-00001 may also be used to diagnose this system.
your best bet mite be to take it to a qualified repair shop. Unless you have a scan tool that can check for DTC'S an know how to use a wiring diagram an DMM - digital multi-meter to test electrical circuits .

I have a failed taillight on my 2000 Jaguar Type S. I am being told it may be the security module but I can't find where that is. Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Does your alarm flash the tail lights or the indicators? Usually indicators or turn signals depending on what side of the pond you are on. I would check the bulbs, connections and the fuses.

Im looking for the fuse for the right tail light

You do not have a separate fuse for each side, if the left side works, replace the bulb in the right side that isn't working.

Tail lights do not work all lights work but the back lights do not work. I change the fuse but lights still don't come on. all the other lights work is there other fuses i need to replace

if the bulbs are ok! check bulb socket to see if you have power.with test light, if not make sure sockets are clean. check the bulbs first, because they are a double filiment bulb. for brakes and tail lights. did you change the correct fuse!! it is located in interior fuse box on drivers side end of dash. its on bottom left side of fuse box. its labled "stp lps". hope this helps,

Tail lights don't work. Fuse is goo and bulbs are

check for voltage at the fuse and at the light bullb socket.

If you have juice at the fuse and none at the bulb look for a short.

You could have a broken ground wire too. So try grounding the bulb with a test light.

Good luck and be safe.

dear friend-have a look at the bulb maybe thts the problem

Brake light out

You've got a broken or disconnected wire somewhere. Get a multimeter & check you have voltage on both sides of the fuse. If that's good you know you've got juice running out to the tail light. Remove the bulb & check for voltage in the socket. Chances are you have 20 years of corrosion behind the socket & it's dirty. Either way, you problem is a disconnected or corroded wire.

Left rear Tail lamp not working (bulb and fuse is fine)

If you have access to a simple 12 volt test light, you can remove the bulb you replaced, turn on the turn signal and park lights and see if the test light lights up. If the turn signal contact blinks the test light and the tail contact lights the test light, you know your power supply to the bulb is good.
Next you will check the ground.
Using your test light, carefully touch the tail light contact with the test light tip and touch the test light ground to the socket ground. If the ground is good the test light should light.
Let me know what you find and we will go from there.

2000 Jaguar S-Type Tail Lamp Failed

I also have a 2000 Jaguar S type. I am having this same problem. I replaced the old bulbs with new bulbs. Look at the new bulbs you put it- did they fizz out immediately after you put them in? I didnt notice at first, but mine did. Look at the filament part inside the glass.

I think my problem is a short. I am getting it looked at this weekend to see.
