I have not got a jag yet, I am thinking about buying one I have owned bmws and audis. ALL CARS FROM europe have electircal probs. I dont know why, this prob sounds like a ground prob. I would check the controil mode on the firewall. Bmws always had a fuse there that would short out on the hood and cause the same prob. I just moved the fuse panel/controil down lower and never had the prob again. I know bmw are different but a car is a car.

SOURCE: 1995 xj6 windshield wiper do not work

you can buy a fuse probe for under $5 and probe all the fuses one by one (it is a small plastic box with two prongs and an 'led' light that glows when the fuse is good). some fuse packs include a fuse probe at no extra charge. some vehicles work on circuit breakers which are small black boxes. listen to the fuse panel while turning the windscreen wipers on or off to see if you can hear a clicking from the circuit breaker. the circuit breaker protects the fuse. good luck

SOURCE: Jaguar 1995 XJ6 idle doesn't hold

I had this problem with my wifes car. I went through the car top to toe and found more than one problem causing this intermittant issue.
I found a weak crank sensor, when warm it was intermittantly losing a signal, replaced it and the problem was a little better, I then found that the throttle position sensor was also intermittantly not within the range it should be, replaced it and it helped, I then was getting the oxygen sensor code and that was only due to the car stalling, nothing to do with the o2's, I finally traced the final issue to the integral harness on the valve body inside the transmission, I replaced that harness and fitted a new transmission speed sensor and the car has been perfect.
I know you have several issues here that could be your problem but you now have a base to start from.
Last thing is the car may just need an engine set-up if you are no longer having any codes. This is only done by the dealer using there WDS computer system. The perform a oxygen sensor orientation test, they set-up the kick down and also set-up the Throttle positon sensor (TPS).
Hope this helps.

SOURCE: S Type Jaguar 3.0 Air leak somewhere in the engine.

It sounds like the classic symptoms of air leaking into the engine after air flow sensor. check the hoses on top of the engine. Also spray detector spray around the inlet manifold this will get dragged into the engine at the leak and will make a noticeable affect on the engine note/smoothness. Leaks around the inlet manifold is quite a common fault on s type. see other posts with similar symptons earlier in jaguar fixya.
Good luck. Please let me know if you find the fault.

Hello! I have a s500 2001Benz and our battery keep dying overnight why is this..

You have an excessive power drain from some electric component in the car and it is draining the battery power rapidly. That is, assuming you have a sound battery that is holding its charge.

You need to have some tests run to identify the source of the drain and rectify it. You will need to either have Mercedes do this or a competent auto electrician who is familiar with Mercedes systems.

The battery will not last very long if it is being constantly discharged like this due to the excessive power drain.

Furthermore, if the battery is old and on the way out it will not hold its charge for very long even if there is no excessive power drain. When the car is idle and everything is in working order, there are still systems on the car that drain a small amount of power constantly so you still need a sound well charged battery.

P1000 problem loss of power after 10 minutes

P1000 is not really a fault code, if there are no there are no other codes stored then perform the following:

Disconnect the positive terminal on the battery, hold the terminal to the chassis for 2 - 3 seconds, this defuses the ecu and drains stored data thus clearing P1000.

Now wait 10 minutes.

Then reconnect battery.

Start car *without touching gas pedal*

Leave car idling for a good 5 - 10 minutes then jump in and go on a minimum 12 mile drive, you will need to perform a few normal driving conditions, fast, slow, stop, pull away etc so just a normal day to day trip to the town would suffice.

Hopefully this will sort it, if not report back

2002 s-type jaguar replaced battey 4 times in 2 years still will drain battery

Buy a cheap voltmeter at someplace like Harbor Freight, for less then $5.
Check the voltage. Doesn't matter where. Can be at the ciragette lighter or across the battery itself.
Should be 12.5 normal.
Drop to 10 when starting, back to 12.5 at idle, and 13.5 when revvved up.
Over 14 volts is bad also
If that is all ok, then not alternator.
Take off battery terminals and clean them, grease them, and while one terminal off, check for current across the gap. With everything off, should be tiny. The radio and clock should be the only things drawing power. Turn on parking lights to see what a real drain should read, probably several amps. If you have a significant drain all the time, you need to disconnect things untl it goes away. Pull fuses, etc., one at a time, looking. Could engine compartment or trunk light, etc. Very last thing I can think of is that I believe this car has a batter heater for cold weather. But it could overheat the batter if malfunctioning. Are batteries going dry?

Bad bearing? where?

You will need to figure out where the noise is coming from.If it does it while idling then look under the hood.Could be alternator,a/c clutch,water pump,tensioner.If it is under the hood then remove the serpentine belt and see what pulley you can`t turn by hand.Caution it could be hot.Good luck.
