  1. Hi, try sending an email to http://www.davidmarksgarages.co.uk they are in Nottingham, not far from Leicester. They may be able to help you out.
  2. It’s all detailed in the manual. Remove the cup holders and underneath you should find a red tag. The manual will tell you what to do.
  3. Yes it will fit. Sit in the drivers seat, where your right knee is, look under there, that’s where the OBD port is.
  4. Hi Chris and welcome. As the engine has been stood for so long, remove the plugs and put a teaspoon of oil down each. Wait 5 minutes and then spin then engine on the starter for 5 - 10 seconds. Replace the plugs and retest the compression, if still the same then you start dismantling.
  5. Any Jaguar independent specialist should be able to read the codes for you. A icarsoft i930 code reader would also be useful to you. What appears to be the problem?
  6. Welcome to the forum. Here’s one option, https://www.jagdroid.org Enjoy.😊
  7. Fixed 2 things for the price of one, bonus.🤙
  8. Yes it can be but do make sure the negative of the charger goes to an earth point and not the battery. The procedure should be in your manual.
  9. Welcome to the forum. I would start by fully charging the battery despite it starting the car especially seeing the first and third pictures. Once charged, try again.
  10. Excellent news and thanks for the update.🤙
  11. Welcome to the forum. Unfortunately, the only way to know what’s going on is to remove the door card and check the movement of the linkages. Enjoy.😊
  12. Welcome to the forum, enjoy.😊
  13. Welcome to the forum, Ron. This electrical manual may help you identify the circuits you’re having trouble with. http://www.jagrepair.com/images/Electrical/Elect-Tech All2/90 Sedan Electrical.pdf
  14. Yes you can, they are designed that way. If they haven’t been moved for some time then spray some lubricant into the swivel point and just keep wiggling them until they are in the park position

  18. Figure 09.1 of this manual refers, http://www.jagrepair.com/images/Electrical/XJElectrical/2006 MY XJ Electrical Guide.pdf follow the lines back from the lights that don’t work, should help you narrow it down.
  19. Welcome to the forum, enjoy.😊
  20. Welcome to the forum, enjoy.😊
  21. Please bear in mind that some of the codes you retrieve will be historical. Write them all down and then clear the lot, take the car for a drive and then see what codes, if any, come back.
  22. Simply post the codes you get and we’ll let you know what they mean, possible causes and solutions.
  23. 32psi sounds right to me, the correct pressure should be on a plate either in the engine bay or perhaps the passenger ‘B’ pillar.
  24. Hi Nick, Not sure on your car. Having the codes read will take out the guesswork though.
  25. First of all, never assume as that could cost you a lot of money. You really need to have the codes read in order to point you in the right direction. Having had the fault myself, it was found to be a ride height sensor, which is more likely to be your problem also.
