Question about 2000 Jaguar S-Type

1 Answer

Heater will not work

I cannot for the life of me get my S types heater to work.
No matter what setting you try, all I get is cold air!
Exceptionally difficult car to get any technical information on.
No smart answers please like the obvious one," If you can afford a Jag then you can afford to take it to a Jaguar service dealership".
Some of us like to fix their own cars!!!!

Its likely to be the heater contol distributor located in the front of the engine compartment under the right hand (when sitting in the drivers seat) headlights. Its very difficult to get to, it took me around 2 hours to change. Its ideally done on a ramp & cost around £150 (ukp) for the distributor valve block + £30 for proper antifreeze aprox 2 years ago.

Why does the front heater only blow cold air

you must listen when changing the temperature from cold to hot to see if you can hear the heater duct opening & closing,if not could be a vacuum hose is disconnected or broken,or the vacuum motor that moves the duct door has broken you might hear a hissing sound,or a cable has broken,I don't think it's a fuse ,because it's working when you turn it on,those are good possible causes I have given you have fun & I hope you have small hands,limited space acess

Heater blows cold air even when engine temp is normal. Where is the thermostat and how difficult would it be for someone with moderate mechanical skills to R&R?

your thermostat will have no bearing on your heater blowing cold air. My s type is kind of funny with its heating/cooling at times too as are several other models I've observed. Since your blower motor is working and blowing out air (cold or not) you may need to have your heater core replaced (part is around 140 excl labor if you have it installed) might be able to get you a diagram of my jtis software if you're a do it yourselfer. It takes a skilled mechanic several hours to remove the dash to r/r core. Very tedious and if you're not familiar with it I'd recommend having a free weekend to do so. I would pay to have mine replaced to give you a straight answer in this matter.

Sounds like the flap valve in your vent system that allows air to go to the defrosters is either jammed or broken. Unfortunately you will have to take the vent system apart to look.

Your heater valve is stuck open, also in a pinch you can crimp off your hose to the heater coil at fire wall. Try to find the heater valve vacumb hose under the hood see if it is bad and fixit. or some models have a cable to the valve could be broken.
