Sounds to me like you've got a cooling fan problem. Possibly even a sensor or a loose/broken wire. Try turning on the A/C and if it cools down that may be your problem.

You need to seek help in the future on that Jag owners Forum, Jags are not a main stream car here in the USA, so knowledge of this rare type of inquiry is very limited.

problem sound like a vacuum leak
check all hoses including vent control, transmission actuator and brake booster, loose manifold
if it is happening more when you have your foot on the brake pedal, the problem can be a problem brake booster

Yeah They unplugged it. Inside the dash. Used car dealerships do this. They don't want you to know the true mileage. That's my first guess. The other is a chip died inside of it. I worked there. I refused to do it and show someone how to do it. I tell all my employers.. Don't send the customer to me, I will not lie for you.

There are several solenoid valves on that transmission. But generally you remove the oil pan, drain the fluid, remove the valve body and then swap out the solenoids. Not usually a DIY project.

You can use one of the plugs that go into the power point/cigarette lighter. Cut the end off add wire to reach a good 12 volt battery. Plug it in. This should give you power to open the boot with the switch.

Sorry that we do not have. Ask the dealer to print you a picture from a part illustration program they all have.

Replace the wire at pin 44 to where ever it goes to. With key on it should be 12+ volts. engine running should be the voltage alternator puts out. If the PCM supplies the 12 volts, then pull the connector and look for corrosion. White to greenish color. If OK, I would cut the wire a few inches from the connector and check voltage. If it went up, replace the wire, if not the corrosion could be in the PCM. I take them apart and clean them also. Use brake clean.

I assume the car would not start, that was the reason for charging the battery in the first place? Most modern battery chargers have a circuit that as the battery "fills up", drop the amperage to maintenance level or 2 amps. Pull the battery and have it checked. I would also have the alternator checked. It may not be working wright.

You have a fuel cut off safety switch . Verify it is on and if it is, go to your relays and fuses.

If goes dead while driving not charging possible bad alternator. If goes dead regardless of driving probably a power drain somewhere. Easy way to test alternator is test battery voltage with a multimeter and make sure at least 12.5. Start car check voltage again and see what it is shot be around 14. If not alternator is most likely bad.
