Question about Jaguar XJR

I have a Jaguar XJR 2000. My headlight low-beams stopped working but the high-beams work fine. So I replaced the headlight bulbs thinking that was the solution. It wasn't, same situation, high-beams work, low-beams do not. What is causing this and how can I correct it????

    Yes there is a fusebox, but no diagram, Fuses marked 5, 10,30 etc. Also some tan colored 1 inch square cubes, So where would I find the fuses???

    BTW, what and where is the High/low beam "relay"???

  • stc-who-wee Apr 01, 2011

    Oh my, I overlooked a smaller second fuse box located nearer to the passenger compartment. It also has no diagram. I suppose I could start pulling them out one at time till I find the one that's bad. But that will be time cunsuming. Better to get a diagram...

Under the hood, there is a fusebox, in it are 4 things you need to look form, the high beam and low beam fuses, make sure the low beam is fine and not blown. Then the high beam relay and low beam relay. Swap the relays, you'll find that its reversed now if one of the relays needs replacing.

Under the cover of the fuse box is a diagram showing where everything is.

    no the fuse box you want is under the hood, ,,, there has to be a diagram.. if not start pulling fuses.. to locate the relay, turn on the ignition, have someone turn on and off the headlights (high beam(since thats the one thats working)) you will hear a relay clicking in the fuse box.. next to it is the low beam one.

Right side headlights not working


You need to first establish that you have current to the headlight in question. With it being so flaky in how it is working I would bet that your connector is bad at the light. Grab a meter and see if you are getting your 12 volts to the connection. Cleaning it out may help you for a while.

One low beam head lights will not work, high beam works though


check for a damaged wire for the low beam. Also wouldn't hurt to check the ground wire as the high beam will try and ground through the low beam but not visa verse

Headlight problem on 1994 XJ6 Jaguar


if your car is the xj40 model the lighiting logic module is under the fascia close to the lighting switch but i think the problem is more likely to be a earth problem or simply the bulbs the twin headlamp car has one twin filament bulb on the outer and one single on the inner so if both main beam filaments fail thats what will happen

The low-beam headlights don't work. The fuses are fine as I replaced them with those of the high-beams and the high-beams worked. Other than both bulbs burning out at the same time what else could be...


Possibly the bulbs. Take a look at them; they have 2 coils per bulb, one for the low beam and one for the high beam. So it is possible that the more used low beam burns out before the lesser used high beam.

i think im right in saying the low beam bulbs are twin filament(low and high beam in one)and the main/high beam are single filament(spotlights).

My r/f high beam is out, so I replaced the bulb but I still have no high beam. Also my daytime running lights stopped working, could they possibly be related?


Yes your daytime running light just uses the headlight bulb on a lower voltage so if the headlight is not working the drl will not work as well, they are dirrectly related,,check the head light fuse,and check to make sure the bulb is good,,

Could be a bad ground, defective bulb sockets, or defective multifunction switch.

Headlight problem


High and low beams use different bulbs. Both of my low beams blow out at the same time. Replace the low beam bulbs.
