SOURCE: my convertible top will not close lock and slow to come up

This is a VERY common problem with these xk convertibles. The most common is the fluid thickens up and the motor has trouble moving the top up and down. What you have to do is perform a convertible fluid flush, which is a pretty difficult task. Jaguar has updated fluid for this flush but it cost like 90 buck a quart, luckily you only need one but its pretty labor intensive. If your look at a dealership to perform this repair is pretty expensive.

SOURCE: Door latch is locked shut on 2003 jaguar x-type.

Check the Lock Module for the door , as it is electrical and will do that if not working

SOURCE: 1995 Jaguar convertable XJS quarter light windows wont go up

The rear windows are controlled by a timer in the top's ECU. If
the rear windows stop fully closing before your top is closed, the
problem MAY be with top's hydraulic system.

Check your top's hydraulic reserve tank for low fluid level. Lack
of fluid will greatly delay the top's closing sequence, leaving
those rear windows partially open.
Your top's hydraulic pump system is located beneath the right side
of the cubby/storage box behind the front seats. Raise the cover
and you'll see a removable trim panel on the right side. The pump
is behind that access panel.

You can use power steering fluid to top off the tank, but don't
fill it above level indicator line. You may have to add more fluid
after you cycle the top up and down to get the air bubbles out of
the lines.
It could also be a relay. On a 95 the relays that are in the trunk above the battery.
Perhaps, just switching the relays might prove which one is failing..

My xj8 Jaguar crank up and sets right back off what all could be wrong


Security is set. Could be one problem. Fuel system can do this, but rarely. Takes a scanner to see where to look first.

In the 1999 Jaguar xj8 there is a fuel cutoff switch on the passenger side right hand panel to the right of the feet. Reach over the top rear of the small panel and find a soft flexible membrane on the top of the switch and press it until it clicks.if that doesnt work,there is a fuel pump relay in the trunk fusebox that might be the problem. 1998 Jaguar XK8 fuel safety shutoff Bing images

My 2002 jaguar s-type will start but it will not go anywhere when I press the gas pedal. My husband put fuses in each fuse box and then a light came on that said FAIL SAFE MODE. What can I do?


the message "fail safe mode" is telling you that there is a fault in either the engine or gear box. In your case the problem is in the transmission. Run the fault codes and check for a torque converter servo/solenoid failure or a TCM problem. Check that there is oil in the transmission.

Are you sure the battery is good, just because you charged it doesn't mean it is any good and reached full voltage. I also suggest you disconnect the battery negative cable for 5 minutes to reset the system.

1998 Sebring Convertible heater is blowing cold air even after replacing the thermostat. Any suggestions on fixing the heat?


after engine is warmed up , feel the hoses that go to and come from the heater. if they are not hot , this indicates that coolant is not flowing through the heater core. Could be that the core is all plugged up , ore some cars have a valve that opens or closes the flow. If the hoses are hot , that the problem is that the ducts in the dash that send air to and from the heater plenum are not opening up correctly. They usually work on a vacuum motor.
If you are not sure which are the heater hoses add that to your post , and I will track down the location for your vehicle. The heater hoses are usually about 1 inch in diameter.
