Jaguar 2002 X-type - Engine dies - electrical problems
While driving, instrument panel stops working, car starts beeping, engine dies. Car will not respond to attempts to restart engine. Fuses found to be burned out in engine compartment panel and under dash panel. Mechanics diagnose problem as possibly being from alarm system, ignition, radio amplifier or instrument panel. Has happened four times now and have had to be towed. (One time was not able to get car into neutral even though key was in ignition switch and turned on.) Any ideas of what we should do? Any way to diagnose where the problem is from? Not willing to drive car anywhere because of risk of having engine die in high traffic. Car currenly at mechanics who are not sure how to proceed without taking each component out one by one to check for shorts.
Re: Jaguar 2002 X-type - Engine dies - electrical...
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.

Sounds like you have lost overdrive. Most cars go into to limp mode with engine and transmission problems. Limp mode is reduced engine power and the transmission only shifts to certain gears. Keeps people from totally destroying the drive train.
2002 jaguar x type 2.5 litre code p1638 with a gear box fault display . code p1638 indits a problem with the pats system . anti theft but the light goes out before 60 seconds after turning the key on indicating the anti theft is recognizing the key. the car won't turn over. check signal to pcm for crank signal and it is good. no signal out of pcm to starter my guess is the instrument cluster, cleaned all connections at pcm, instrument cluster, and gem. customer has no extra keys
If this happens, you should see a display in your dash. Either check engine, engine fault, gear fault, etc. The X type has many electrical sensors and grounds. You really need a diagnostic tool that will specify the problem. If you don't have one, take it to a mechanic to give you a diagnostic reading. They ussually charge $25. Then after the report, if your capable of taking on the task, do it. If not, as for the estimate from that mechanic and the guarantee.
