  5. Welcome to the club, Graham. An XJS is such a good condition and with such a good history should make a very good price, and I would not consider an auction unless it was organised by a classic car club. I would be inclined to take the car to somewhere where Jaguar Owners and enthusiasts attend, such as the monthly breakfast meet at the Gaydon Museum, or some other similar event such as the Coventry Jaguar even on the 29th June. I would not immediately ask for a price, but putting up a car with its history details on the windscreen and a For Sale Card on the windscreen should attract a good price. At a guess, an XJS/Classic Car enthusiast should offer a good price and over the £20k mark. Good luck, Regards, Peter.
  6. Welcome to the club, John. I had the same problem las week, after we had a period of cold weather. The snowflake remained on the dashboard when it was getting quite warm, I had heard that some diesel engines stay warm for a much longer period than petrol engines, so I assumed they would also stay colder longer. As I had not used my car for a couple of days I guessed that it might rectify itself and as I was going on a drive that would take half an hour each way I thought I would do nothing. The snowflake disappeared and the temperature rectified before the half hour on the outward journey was up. It could have been the Webasto Auxiliary heater not coming on that was the problem, and putting the fuse back is worth trying. Regards, Peter.

  8. Hello. My 2007 XS diesel showed a temperature reading on the small LCD screen of 0 degrees and the snowflake was on the dash when it was 20 degrees outside. I disconnected the sensor and it showed 10 degrees on the LCD with no sensor fitted and stayed at that. Thinking it was the sensor I purchased a used one from eBay that was said to work. I installed that but the temperature still reads 10 degrees, (and its a warm day!) Assuming the “new” one is OK can anyone tell me what the problem may be? I have checked the ohms reading on both sensors across the two pins and they both are showing around 31 ohms. Is that a good reading or are they both duff? Incidentally I have removed the fuse for the Webasto heater to stop that coming on. Could that affect things? Any help appreciated. Cheers, John

  10. Hi. I am new to this forum and looking for some advice. I have a Jaguar XJS 4.00 Celebration Coupe Registered on 1-1-96. It was given to me by my step father, before he died, who bought it from new. The car is in extremely good condition, ice blue in colour and has only 14,134 miles on the clock - it is pretty much in original condition, has been garaged every winter since 1996, and has had regular MOT,s. It has been used sparingly in the summer months. Sadly because it is not being used I am looking to sell it and the advice I am seeking is: How much, realistically should I ask for it, should I sell it online, at an auction, or should I take it to a Jaguar Enthusiasts Show for people to see it. I have not advertised it for sale yet and your advice would be very welcome. Thank you. Graham
  11. Last week
  12. Hi All ! I'm Paul , new to Jaguar ownership, Owned my 2011 Jaguar XF S ( luxury premium ) 3ltr diesel for around 6 mth's now , and enjoyed every minute .
  13. If you lift the red flap, there is another red cover underneath it.

    If you lift this second cap, there is a metal stud. I think this is for a positive connection to the battery, for charging and use of jump leads.

    There is a negative stud on the top of the suspension turret.

    This is my understanding, but if I am wrong, someone please let me know, so that I don't do any damage in later life!

  14. Hi I am Looking for a X-type mini disc head unit for my 2004 2.0 D can anyone help
  15. Thank you Joe I did think it may have been a fuse box but did not want to go opening anything with the risk of breaking something. I have only had the car for 2 weeks and am a bit dubious of pulling apart something that isn't broken......I've done it before and broke it lol I could not see it in the handbook, perhaps I skipped a page or something


    Hi Theres a flap on the ignition switch that can stick most people just give a quick sqirt of wd40 which cures it cheers Joe
  17. hi pull the red cover, it should lift and open looks like engine bay fusebox it will also show you in the handbook cheers Joe
  18. hi on the lower bulkhead, easiest way is to go to the dpf, it will have two small pipes for differential pressure, follow them to the bulk head cheers Joe
