Question about 1989 Jaguar XJ6

1 Answer

1989 Jaguar started and ran perfect for the last 3 weeks. Noticed that the Heater blower motor was defective and decided to take it out, because it kept blowing fuses. Now the car won't start. It turns over and the battery is new, wondering if the coil is bad or if something else is wrong. The starter doesn't sound all that good, but like I said it ran and started fine, but since removing the blower motor it wont start. The blower motor is still out

I would check the coil and make sure that the fuse to the ignition system hasn't blown out.

    I don't think that the heater blower motor should be connected to the ignition system, but if it is affected by the blower motor being in there, maybe put a new blower motor in and see what happens. If it blows fuses, again, then it may be a short to ground in the wiring harness.
    Recommend an auto electric shop take a look at it in that case to trace the wires. May be expensive though due to the time and hourly rate being high.

    Good luck on this repair.

    In addition, I would check for fuel and gas being delivered to the cylinder.
    If adding starting fluid to the intake makes it start right off and quit, then there is a fuel delivery problem. If adding starting fluid doesn't start the car, then the ignition system is bad.

Could be the blower motor, or the resistor, or a bad connection in the harness. Someone would need to check for power and ground at the motor first.

If your "check engine" light is turn on, I suggest scanned the PCM to know exactly what fault code is stored there. Additionally, could be some problem with the "temp sending unit".

2001 jaguar xj8 hot air not working cold air perfect

Check your heater core for leaks. Do you smell any antifreeze? If so, good sign of heatercore failure. IF air is blowing good, then heater/air blower motor is fine.

Re:-- Heater motor problem

Another common probelm is the resistor melts on these. replace blower motor resistor and pigtail. GM puts too small of gauge wire for what the blower motors want and causes them to melt.

VERY common. resistor is just under the blower motor usually 3 small bolts holding it in place. and a 4 or 3 pin wire. i forget.
