Hi
it may be the central locking motor on that door, but firstly try freeing it up, they sometimes get stiff and just need some WD40 spray all around the lock,mechanism and if you are able to get to the motor spray that also, you will have to remove the door trim to get to the motor its a fairly simple job. Once you have sprayed everything lock and unlock the door with both the key and the remote repeatedly.

Hope this helps

My right side passenger door does not lock automatically anymore. Is there a fuse that operates this.


no all is related to one fuse you can remove the door internal controls and decore and remove center lock motor plug and test two connectors with multimeter with set on 12v and then lock un lock door and check the reading of the multimeter if it read signal then all plugs and wires from central lock control unit to the door central lock unit is okay it this cae you have to replace the door central lock unit with the same if no signal is readed while you lock unlock the door then you have to check central control unit and all wire plus out of it to the door plug

2- you can remove central control unit from driver door and test it in passenger door (usually the same unit ) if it works with lock unlock its then the replaced unit is faulty and needs to be replaced if it not work then check plugs wires from central lock unit (usually found inside driver door ) to the central lock unit in passenger door

3- check signal for said door fro the output of central door unit if no signal then it mean that faulty central lock control unit

Drivers door and fuel cap not locking with central locking have to lock door with key also fuel cap does not lock all other doors lock and open with central locking drivers door opens with central locking


Hello Alan,

I would suspect the fuel flap actuator has failed. Open the trunk. In the right rear corner is the access cover. Open it and you'll see some insulation matting near the top. Behind it is a fuse/relay carrier, I believe either fuse 55 or 56 is blown. If so the fuel flap actuator needs replaced. The fuse also controls the central locking system.

How do i disable valet mode om a 98 jaguar vanden plas?


Try inserting the key into the drivers door lock and try centrally locking and unlocking all the doors a few times. If this does not reset the valet function try using the key in the drivers door lock and pressing the fob at the same time as locking and unlocking the doors. Even with valet mode engaged you should be able to access the trunk by physically inserting the key into the trunk lock.

I need a locking fuel cap for my 2000 xj8?


The door to access the fuel filler compartment locks as part of the central locking system. If it is working properly, the fuel door is locked whenever the car doors are locked. However, if it doesn't lock when you lock the car, and you don't want to repair the central locking system (or part thereof), you will have to buy an aftermarket locking gas cap, since Jaguar doesn't offer one. You can find aftermarket gas caps at many online stores and catalog stores such as J.C. Whitney. Good luck.
