Question about 1998 Jaguar XK8

Open Question

Headlights & tail lights are not working suddenly check fuses

We have stop lights and day driving lights and reversing lights but no night driving lights either head lamp dipped or high beam. And no tail lights for night driving. We have checked all the 10 AMP fuses that appear from the handbook to control the lighting circuits and they are all OK. Bulbs in the tail cluster appear OK but we have not tried to remove the headlamp housings to chaeck the front bulbs. The car is in Nassau Bahamas where we live and we do not have a dealer on the island!
The car is a Jaguar XK8 Convertable 1999 with 17,000 miles.

SOURCE: Rear interior light and door courtesy lights not working- Jaguar

take off the cover and replace them. if you have a volt/ohm meter you can put if on the car side and make sure you have voltage and the ohm meter on the buldb should give a 1 rating if its good. it would be the cheapest and easiest to just get a new bulb and see if it works then start checking fuses if its not the bulb.

yes it sounds like a vacuum leak possibly the line going to the brake booster try to start the car open the hood and listen for a hissing noise you may be able to inpoint where the leak is and fix it with a new piece of hose or a fitting

SOURCE: 2001 jaguar s type - Right tail lamp failure

There is a harness that you unplugged for the rear tail lamp. Make sure it is fully pressed and locked. This is always the cause on jags for tail lamp failure.

No tail lights


Your year--make--model didn't post for some reason? That info would be helpful, to check wiring.
I'd probably check voltage and ground at the bulb socket.

My brake lights work but my tail lights and reverse lights don't work. Also my dash lights quit when I changed the switch for my headlights.


Check your fuses. I had the same problem with a 90 Honda civic. Dash lights went out, tail lights also went out. Replaced 1 fuse and all came back on.

2007 tail light fuse location honda crv


I had this problem with my 2007 Honda CRV -- all the lights worked EXCEPT the tail/running lights and the license plate light. The other tail lights worked -- brake, reverse, indicators, and hazards. Front headlights also worked, but when the headlights went on the back tail lights did not (not to safe for driving at night!!)
The fuse was #15 in the interior fuse box (under the dash driver side) with the label "small exterior lights" ( also check fuse #19 labeled "small lights main"). The cause of my problem, I believe, is a bad or lose wire in my license plate light.

Headlights don't work.


There is a circuit breaker inside the headlight switch body. It gets weak over time and use. The breaker is actually mentioned in the owners manual. A new switch is about $75.00 at the local parts store. You must remove the front of the dash to change the switch. Mine would go off and then in about 30 seconds reset and the lights would come back on. I would be driving down the road with my headlights flashing as the circuit breaker opened and closed. New switch = problem fixed.
