The AC is driven by a pulley pulled by the serpentine belt. When the AC is switched on an electrical clutch engages the driven pulley with the AC compressor on the same shaft. If the AC compressor is frozen up the pulley will not turn when the AC is switched on and the belt will squeal as it is pulled over the static pulley wheel. If, when the AC is switched on, the pulley wheel continues to spin then it is likely that the electrical clutch is not engaging. It is much more often the case that the clutch fails before the AC seizes. If this is the case check out the AC fuse and clutch relay. The fuse can be inspected visually and the relay can possibly be inter- changed with one that is similar (windscreen wiper or electric windows). The relay should make a 'click' that can be heard when the AC is switched on. Put the suspect relay into a circuit that you know is working in order to check it.

I have a 2004 Jag s type w/ 45k miles. Last night I got all the system lights and "transmission fault, parkbrake fault and dsc not available." Got home, turned it off, restarted after 1 minute, restarted...


First thing to do is get the battery checked and replaced if necessary. If the problem continues, it will be necessary to have a pro-shop check the fault codes (go to a Jag specialst, not a dealer)

My compresor dont want to kikin


Which compressor are you talking about? The air ride or the A/C?

For the air ride, it has fuses and relays. All the door jam switches and cargo doors must be shut.

For the A/C, you would verify that the system has Freon before attempting to replace a compressor. A low pressure switch would deactivate the compressor clutch. The system would need to be Evacuated with a Vacuum pump and then recharged, It is not like changing a starter. After prepping the system, you may need to jump the low pressure switch to get an initial charge of Freon, then reconnect the low pressure harness to the cut-out switch.

You need some type of guage to measure the charge. When the system has enough Freon to let the Low pressure switch provide power to the compressor clutch; the signal will be restored to the compressor.

Compresor dont get current


Autozone.com has diagrams for free when you register your car on their site. You can test the low pressure cut-off valve downstream from the evaporator tank by disconnecting the harness from the switch and using a good size wire to loop into the harness.

If the compressor clutch kicks in, you have either low system pressure or a bad low-pressure cut-out switch. This is a test procedure. Even bypassing direct as you have done can risk damaging the compressor.

Besides Freon, compressors need oil, the right type, and a small amount. There are Freon cans which include an oil charge as well as sealers and conditioners to prevent or fix leaks. Remember that the system has a volume limit and more additives leaves less room for the Freon to work good.

If you have low pressure, it is possible that what is left is contaminated. Freon is a gas. Air is a gas. The system was suppose to start with Vacuum negative pressure by using a Vacuum pump(Loaner item). This means that total volume inside your hoses could be wrong. It is easier to understand when you consider the Freon changes back to a liquid and Air needs a much lower temperature to become a liquid. So you lose volume for the Freon to change back from liquid to a gas. It constantly cycles like this to make it transmit heat from the cabin to the outside.

I hope my solution is helpful.

Our Jaguar dealership wants to charge me $2,400 for brakes, which doesn't include turning the drums. Can a regular guy like me, that changes his Ford's brakes, do this job, or can I take it to any...


Get the items as needed for changing the brakes are not that hard at all. Take the rotors and the drums to any NAPA store of one that will machine these for you. If not machinable they will advise you on a cost for replacements. You can save a whole lot doing it your self. Call around for the best pricing and availability too

Jaguar 2003 S Type Oil change. Where's the oil filter and drain plug and how's the best way to get to it?


you will need to remove the plastic undercarraige panel below the engine compartment to access filter & drain plug. I have the same model and change my oil about every 2k miles what I did to my first oil change was to cut access holes below the filter and drain plug to allow for fast/frequent oil changes. Not having to remove panel will save about 2 to 3 hours removing and reinstalling panel or will significantly save $ on oil changes jag dealer charges 100 a pop do it yourself for about 20$

Heater valve


It takes roughly 2 1/2 to 3 hours to replace the heater valve, it is a pain to get access to the 5 heater hose clamps. A good mechanic can replace is in 1 1/2 to 2 hours but a shop is still going to charge you the 2 1/2 to 3
