  1. If all was ok prior to the change then the battery has to be suspect. Rarely are new batteries supplied fully charged so an overnight charge will give you a known starting point. 🙂
  2. Faulty Air Conditioning Clutch Relay Air Conditioning Clutch Relay harness is open or shorted Air Conditioning Clutch Relay circuit poor electrical connection Worth checking the above first. Figure 06.1 of this electrical manual may help. http://www.jagrepair.com/images/AutoRepairPhotos/CarPDFFiles/SType/S-Type-Electrical-2006on.pdf
  3. Open the bonnet and remove the cowl around the windscreen. Check and clean both drains and remove all debris.
  4. Figure 09.2 of this manual confirms rear fog lights. http://www.jagrepair.com/images/AutoRepairPhotos/jagxj1996.pdf
  5. Hi Mathew, Remove the cassette from the cd changer ensuring you account for all 6 cd’s. Make sure that all cd’s are sat correctly in their trays and the trays are correctly positioned in the cassette. Now refit the cassette into the cd changer and try again.🙂
  6. With the car running and the battery light on, check the voltage at the battery and see what you get. Sounds like the alternator though.
  7. Have a look in the vehicle settings, accessed through the infotainment screen, to see if the power fold mirrors have been switched off.
  8. The first thing to do is to fully charge the battery overnight and see what happens then. These cars do not like low voltages as strange things can happen because of it.😁
  9. Hi Roger, Drive the seat fully forwards and remove the 2 bolts in the back seat track, now drive the seat fully backwards and remove the 2 front bolts in the seat track. Now you will be able to tip the whole seat backwards to enable disconnection of the plugs underneath, then lift the seat out of the car.
  10. Here is the centre part and is primed. https://rimmerbros.com/Item--i-C2P22276XXX and the left side. https://rimmerbros.com/Item--i-C2P20416XXX Couldn’t find cheaper David, sorry.🙂
  11. Well you can certainly kiss goodbye to 40mpg if you do get one, that’s if you get chance before the wife does you in.🤣
  12. That’s what I said in my first post and why I posted the two page numbers to confirm it. To clarify, according to the electrical manual, the manual transmission has a reverse switch fitted and the auto box does not.
  13. Certainly not any Jag wheels I’ve seen before.
  14. Figure 04.1 and 08.3 (top left) of this manual refers. http://www.jagrepair.com/images/Electrical/STypeElectrical/2003 MY S-Type Electrical Guide.pdf
  15. The reverse switch is only fitted to manual transmission cars.🙂
