    When you say intermittent do you mean the lights sometimes work sometimes don't?

    Have you check the brake light switch itself for loose wires, etc? I'm not sure if yours is brake pedal activated or master cylinder activated (mechanical switch or hydraulic pressure switch).

  • I got it to a shop that knows what they are doing - they had to replace the transmission module, engine module, and key module - all used, and several thousand dollars later - everything was fine. 3 months later, I turned the key and nothing! It's back at the same shop - they say the transmission module is gone again and that it is a very rare thing, so they are keeping it for a while to drive around and see if there is something else that might have caused the failure. I'm considering getting it running and selling it fast, even though I love it.

    My car too low light came on and after a while my suspension failure light came on just trying to find if someone had this issue before and what to do? The dealer said it might be the compressor @ a 1000 dollar repair. Please help.

  • I have an issue with the turn signal. The turn signal does not work when the brake is applied. I have replaced the rear lamp module with used part and the same thing still happens. I still get the lamp out warning in the driver information center. are there any fixes for this with updated modules? Any suggestions? :confuse:
  • I've only had the car for a few months, the oil pressure gage has never worked. It goes from 0 to MAX as it pleases. I suspect the sending unit is flakey. Does anyone know the specs on the sending unit, the resistance range it uses? These sending units are almost impossible to get and very expensive. I would like to try to adapt one from another car. If I can find one that works, I would be happy to share the info.
  • 1998 XJ8 driver's door window problem...window stayed up. Was told i needed a new module. Disconnecting the battery worked but only for about 6 window operations. Fixed everything by removing the door module, cleaning up the terminals with a soft brass brush and applying contact cleaner before re-assembling. Good luck,

    Does anyone know where i can find an ing. ECU for my 1991 jag. xjs v12 ? The last six numbers of my vin. are 176362. I am looking for the engine ECU I would be interested in a new one or a good tested used one. I tried jagbits with no luck. I guess that is my problem as the car has no fire from the coils. i replaced the coils with the same results. If anyone could help me out I sure would appreciate any help. thanks

    you might try www.car-part.com.

    maybe www.johnscars.com

    also some guy splitting up XJSs petroske@tds.net

    www.vintagejag.com

    www.jaguarsouth.com

    I've never done business with these people, so the usual caveats apply.
