Many things can cause resricted performance..I have a vanden plas and a xjr...and I have seen many things cause it from knock sensors, to water being sprayed on the engine or short circuiting throttle body sensors etc...the 1st thing you must do is have the code read that is causing the restricted performance ...let me know.

Ask a parts auto place or jaguar dealer parts or service dept as they will also have what you need.

If you have no air blowing out it sounds like the blower motor has quit

it is located under the driver running board...,just raise the car and remove the lower batwing cover..you will see two ten mm bolts on both sides of the running board,then you will see 2 eight mm bolts,then three 10 mm bolts near the front. ..once its removed you will see the fuel suply line running upward where the drivers foot rest incline is and the fuel filter is just past the incline..make sure you remove the fuse in the trunk for the pump to depressurize it...good luck and let me know if you need any more help.

Please if you can get into the car, beneath the driver side underneath the steering compartment you will get the fuse box there. Check the map and replace the fuse that has cut off.

Good luck.

Usually they are installed with screws, if no then they have a tension spring clipping it into position,try applying firm pressure to the this side pushing it in a forward direction, or visa versa, a small scerw driver will help lift it ffrom the panel while you push it. Obviously do not use the driver to force leverage as you risk damaging the paint, place a rag under it just in case. Hope this helps, Good luck

I have a 1999 XJ8. Same setup as yours, with very minor differences. I had the same problem, turned out NOT to be fuse, OR bad relays, OR wiper motor, OR Body Processor Module. It was simply a loose connection at the body processor module below the Glovebox. I Literally jiggled the wires, and it started working again, and has been ever since. I have the Shop Manual, Technical ability, and Tools available to test all of the circuits involved, and went forth with printing out the wiring diagrams, and step by step eliminated each, until I decided to give the connection a jiggle, JUST BEFORE replacing the Body Processor Module (which would have been expensive)

Test 1:
Try the jiggle trick. Should be able to access harness just below, and behind the left of the glovebox. touch around up there, but don't be a brute, as you MAY break stuff.

Test 2:
Check Fuse under hood, (#22) Should be a 30A fuse

Test 3:
Swap the relays located on the drivers side, just behind the radiator. One is for Wiper motor run, the other is for wiper motor high speed.

Test 4: Jumper Pin 3 & 5 on the LEFT relay (drivers left) (please remove relay first). This should turn the wipers on, regardless of whether or not the computer is telling it to run. If wiper does not turn on, check fuse, or replace wiper motor.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
