Question about 2000 Jaguar S-Type
Tempory & simple fix, normal lights again.
I will do my best to explain, it is a simple exercise and the headlights ended up working as they normally would.
The middle two lights have an electrical connector each, if you wiggle them up and down you will notice the inner lenses of both lights move together.
I positioned a normal cable tie around the electrical connector and tied it to a firm bady part behind each light. I gently tentioned the cable ties until the inner lenses reached the normal hight that they normally can go to under normal circustances. I then applied some super glue to hold the cable ties in position around the electrical connector. (just so that the cable ties don't move off position)
To my surprise when I turned the key, the headlights started it's normal sequence going down and then up and into normal position.
I cant work it it out, but it seems the mechinism inside when pulled back by the cable ties is now working normal again. Try it with two people and hold the electric connector and turn the key. I wonder if they have not just clipped out due to our (certainly ours) road conditions.
You can email me if you need a better explanation. firstname.lastname@example.org
PS there is a long cover above the lights, it pop out the clips & remove it, it makes it easier to get your hands in.
