Question about 1994 Jaguar XJ6

1 Answer

Dashboard Instrument cluster does not work.

Dashboard Instrument cluster in my 1994 Jaguar XJ6 Vanden Plas that shows odometer, speedometer, warning lights such as oil, fuel gauge, seatbelts warning lights, etc., do not work. Headlights work fine. Windows and doors also have problems, but Dashboard is essential. I do not know what speed I am doing or how much gas I have. Please help. Thanks.

There are 2 large terminal plugs with the wiring for all the instruments that are plugged into the back of that panel. make sure they are snug and in place. You reach in and under but it may easier to "simply" remove the cluster. 4 screws hold it in place accessible form underneath and with a long phillips screwdriver and lighting.

Can I turn off the Trunk Open warning that is stuck on, on my dashboard?


Hello,
The obvious action to take would be to trace down the component that has failed/shorted/ etc and replace it/fix it so the light on the dash goes out properly. If you have done something like this already to no avail then you could try taking out the corresponding bulb in the instrument cluster itself. You may need to remove the cluster but the bulbs tend to come out pretty easily. I never recommend and am not currently recommending anyone ever take out any bulbs in the cluster as it can be misleading especially upon resale. But for daily driving purposes and convenience, ill throw that option on the table.. Hope this helps

Forget about fuse box id. Just test all fuses one by one with a test light until you find the bad one.

Hard to start 1994 Vanden Plas


I have had a corroded rotor or badly worn contacts inside the distributor cap. Lightly sanding takes care of that and making sure the wires are all tight to plugs.
