Question about 1998 Jaguar XK8

Open Question

Jaguar xj8 Trip computer - fuel usage, mpg, average mph etc - can't toggle through this info using end of indicator stalk switch. Could it just simply be the stalk switch is faulty or is this a more commonly known fault elsewhere in the jag's electronics?

SOURCE: losing mpg on 98 4runner

Hello woodmanz,
Thinks that help mpg.
Change air filter, engine needs oxygen.
If using air conditioner, try with it turned off?
Oil change helps if has not been done.
Air in the tires help with mpg.
Tune-up( spark plugs,etc.

SOURCE: Had the EGR changed on

Changeing the egr valve will not affect the engine management .you do not have to resett it. but the more miles in the trip the less acurate as it only a estimate    D

How to reset trip meter to zero for every journey on jaguar s type and also where the button to reset is please?


The two buttons that control the trip options are on the dash adjacent to the hazard warning button. Press the TRIP button untill it shows a small A or B in the top left (say average mpg) then press the upper part of the toggle switch marked RESET/CLEAR and hold it for about four seconds, this will display A or " B resetting" depending on which trip you are currently in, then everything on that trip is reset to zero (mileage/mpg/ave.speed etc). I use A for the full tank recording and B for individual journeys that I wish to record.

The previous post is untrue! MFA means MultiFunktions Ansiege (pronounced AAN-zeeguh).
This is a German- Americanism for Multi-Function Indicator.

The MFA displays the time, time driven since the ignition was started, miles driven since the ignition was started (trip miles are displayed under the odometer), miles per gallon, average miles per gallon, and outside temperature. I think that's it. If you click the little button on the underside the wiper switch, you can toggle between 2 different trackings. If you HOLD that button, you can re-set the avg. mpg's (but not the current mpg's, they are calculated every 30 yards), time driven, miles driven. Contrary to the previous poster's solution, it does not actually indicate anything is wrong with your car! (but they were right about scrolling through the indications with the side rocker switch) the malfunction indicator is on the cluster, it is a little engine block with a lightning bolt through it. It usually means you need an oil change. If it blinks, you have a catalytic converter problem. Hope this helps.

There is no indicators working on the car the message trip computer system is stuck on the same message and and cannot toggle between average speed etc. the message and dashboard lights are very dull. the...


The hazards most likely still work, but when they key is out, it won't flash on the dash, but will outside.

As for the indicators and trip...could be either a steering wheel module to a turn signal stalk issue.

Were you having problems with the turn idicators acting weird before?
