Question about 2002 Jaguar X-Type
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.
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.
