Pull gear selector from park to drive.
The Door handles on all Jaguar XJ6 models were designed by a moron, or group of morons. They are all made of pot metal and have a weak spot at the pivot point that pushes on the linkage that goes to the door latch. Eventually, your door handle will break and it will need to be replaced. I manufactured my own door handle and made it from a solid steel bracket that I bought from… Read More
Copied from an old thread (it works; I've had to do it twice): I would advise you to try this: 1-Make sure the unit is completely off. 2-Hold down the "FN" key and turn the unit on with the main sliding Power switch and immediately start to tap the "F11" key. 3-The unit will look likes it's shutting down. Let it do this three times. This resets the CMOS. On first boot, the POST will… Read More
First check the fuel pressure 38 to 44 psi do you have this? if so then jack up rear car both sides with stands. have rech up next to drive line and unclip two fuel lines, a little gas will come out. (NO, DRAIN THE TANK BEFORE YOU ATTEMPT ANY OF THESE STEPS) Additional note on unclipping the two fuel lines: (At this point you should have most of the fuel drained from the tank… Read More
Answer - defective fuel pump? I had a similar problem with my XJ6 and it eventully turned out to be a faulty fuel pump - but that only partially soved the problem - the next owner of the car discovered that the crankshaft sensor had an intermittent fault! Hope that this is of some use. could also be lose wire on the ignition coil. i had this intermittantly for six months be solving, also, try… Read More
Turn the key to acc to allow the radio to come on, wait for it to display CODE, and then enter your 4 didgit radio code. If you make a mistake, turn the key off and on, and try again. If you make 5 mistakes, turn the key on to acc, wait 1 hour, and it will reset.
Mines a lever on the floor left hand side of drivers seat.My 1990 Soveriegn has the same lever on the driver's side floor, but on my 1989 Vanden Plas I just pushed on the filler cover and it popped open. When I finished fueling, I pushed it back down and it clicked shut.
Yes. Open your trunk lid and on the left hand side (the side of the fuel filler cap) there should be a label that says manual fuel door open. The switch is white and close to the top right by the fuel filler cap on the inside of the trunk. You may have to pull back the carpeting a little to find it as it might be tucked behind. Give it a pull and the… Read More
== == well first check the fuse and connections ( check all the simple and stupid things first).

It (lever) is in the trunk, left side, under mouth of gas tank. I found it. Maybe inside the glove compartment? On the floor left side of drivers seat, its a lever.
Remove the door panels and lubricate everything that moves. Fixes 95% of them!
You have to use your key then manually pull the remaining locks open by hand.
I had a 1989 Vanden Plas that drained the battery so bad I had to pop the hood and unhook the negative lead every day. Since I didn't have the funds to fix it I drove it like that for a year! Happily, my 1990 Soveriegn doesn't have the same problem. I would take yours in for this fix. Chasing down electrical shorts is not for the backyard mechanic. Good luck!
unlock it with the key below key hole - there is a lever - push it up - this will open up the trunk
You will be able to buy this part and get information from Norman Motors Ltd in London.
As with all of these questions, the cause could be many things, but one common one is this: The clicking is being caused by a bad exhaust-manifold gasket, which allows exhaust to escape its normal route from exhaust manifold to pipe to muffler. And in escaping that route, the leak makes noise as often as the piston nearest the leak purges exhaust from the cylinder in which it is operating. Hence a clicking noise that… Read More
Answer Have the sway bar bushings lubricated. GoodluckJoe Additional: Joe is correct, and I would add two other less obvious gremlins if that fix didn't work: I had a small plastic clip come loose on the Grill retainer that vibrated at idle and produced a similar sound, and of course a fan belt in its early stages of failure. Hi I have a jagure as well and I noticed it has a little chirp when… Read More
The most decidedly best way possible is take it an independent Jaguar mechanic familiar with a twenty year olde Series III.Secondly a good English Series III Service Manual should be indispensable as well a 1,75 litre bottle of good gentelman's drinking gin. Manual cost around 100.-US.
A new steering rack is around 200 CDN and the labour would be at least two hours, plus wheel alignment, fluids etc. Anew steering pump is around a hundred bucks and labour, to transfer pulley etc. would be at least an hour and a half.........
This is not a job for the faint hearted. You will need a lot of patience and dextrous fingers. Remove the interior door panels...look into the handle area and spot the 3 small nuts that hold the handles to the door skin..remove and save... locate operating rod clips, release, ease handle out from door, locate loom connectors for lock barrel heater and lock control, they are secured from being trapped by the window in a… Read More
To remove the radio: Remove the ashtray by raising the armrest cover and removing the two screws at the rear of the ashtray. Slide the ashtray back and then lift it out. Be careful of the two front tabs, as you don't want to break them. Reach below the wood console, where the ashtray front tabs were inserted. Loosen and remove the two wing nuts.

you can replace power stering pump without moveing drive shaft but its fiddly. to remove drive shaft undo 30mm nut in centre,undo bottom ball joint and pull strut out of way be ready to catch gear box oil.
I recently had my rear struts changed, and my advice is to break down and pay the mechanic, my dad used to do almost all of my mechanic work, but he wouldn't touch the struts as they required special tools and a four wheel alignment after installation. ANSWER I changed the rear struts on my 1991 Lumina. It is relatively simple actually. You need to remove the rear tire then remove the two mounting bolts… Read More
you should use stabil fuel stablizer ,new spark plugs, if it is carb injected it will always be that way have a specialist tune the carb if not then new spark plugs
location of wiper motor on 1985 Jaguar XJ6
May be idle position sensor.
The transmission fluid dip stick is located beside the Oil dipstick. The oil is the one with the red top.
This means Idle speed control motor (ISC) or valve
Not easy unless you have the key. If you do, turn it to the accessory position and depress the pin at 1 o'clock on top of the cylinder body. Pull, and the cylinder should pull out of the body. If you don't have the key, you'll have to remove the entire the entire cylinder body, then cut the cylinder out of the body by any means necessary.
There is a cover on the very top of the engine. You will need a torx tip srewdriver of the proper size to access the three screws holding the panel covering the coils. Under the panel are the coils there are two bolts aprox. 9mm that need to be taken out to remove each coil.Unplug the power wires first). If there's eccesive oil in the holes then you need a new valve cover gasket (can… Read More

On a 1993 XJ6 the fuel filter is bolted to the underside of the car on the nearside near the rear wheel-arch.
YES....All the Jaguar factory installed CD changers are compatable. They are made by Alpine but are labeled as Jaguar. So...if you need that little cable with the proprietary socket that might be missing from the replacement changer you can buy it at www.crutchfields.com (or any other auto audio store) rather than a Jag dealer. and save about $60.00. : the later Jaguars use a Ford type fitting for the CD Changers so on a 1999… Read More
That sure sounds like a bad keyswitch, but you'll have to track it down if that isn't it.
Most fuses are in the front foot wells on the passenger and drivers side. They are behind panels just in front of where the door hinges and are just held in with one screw for each. Inside the panels it tells you what each fuse is for and how many amps that fuse should be. -------------
In order, the most common cause of failure on the blowers is failure of the brushes on the motor itself. The motor is completely open to the elements as air comes in (ie, no cabin filter) and can get water and rust. Check the fuses. If both have failed simultainiously, odds are that the left side one is dead and is causing the right one to fail as well (the left sends the signal to… Read More
The light comes on when the transmission goes into the "limp home mode". The transmission uses only third gear. It is not a good idea to drive in this mode for any lengith of time. A common potential fix is to check the electrical plug connection on the left (drivers) side of the transmission. The connector has several pins make sure this is connected securly for some this corrects the problem. If this does not… Read More
Yea, it's probably a problem with the transmission. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news.
not likely PCM problem... most common cause is either ... Bad Cooling Fan Relay Blown Cooling Fan Fuse or Bad Cooling Fan Motor
it is most likely the fuse. I have a 1984 jaguar xj6 and i have had the same problem, my fix for it was that the fuse box was messed up and a lot of the fuses have to be half out to work. Just try testing the fuses and moving them around a bit to see if that will re-connect the instruments.
Fuel Fail 37 is either a fault with the EGR Valve or its Solenoid
Simple, the relays are bad in the 88s-94s a blue relay was used for everything *those square blue cubes* you need to replace them with a new black one. The blue ones were not water tight allowing moisture in to corrode the wires. The new black ones are about 12 bucks a pop
I had a similar problem when I purchased a second hand stereo for my Jag but the code that was given was wrong. I contacted a car audio firm and they decoded the radio for me at a cost of around
There is a plastic card in the owner's manual with the 4 digit radio code. Turn on radio, enter code and it will reset and play. If you cannot find the card, try to conmtact prior owner. If no luck, contact service department where car has been repaired and they should have it in their computer. After that, email vin # to Jaguar corporation and see if they have it. Note Often you will find… Read More
remove inner fender passenger side antenna mast is right there back towards door you can get a new antenna for about 56 dollars
The antenna motor is located in the right front fender. Access to the motor is via the right front wheel well: remove the front right tire first, then several plastic pop-out fasteners and a few sheet metal screws holding the plastic wheel well cover in place (you can just push it aside, as it's fairly flexible). Two more screws hold the motor in place. If your antenna isn't moving up or down, chances are the… Read More

The fuel pump is in the lower panel of the trunk. Most are under the spare.
It is on the drivers side very rear of the oil pain close to where the transmission is. It takes a 30 mm socket and a breaker bar.
Ignition Amplifier Failure
you first have to switch it out to r-134, which is expensive, and is one reason alot of people sell old jags
What is the firing order of a 1983 Jaguar XJ6 dist. cap order. Its 1,5,3,6,2,4 if my memory works.
The 1997 Jaguar power steering fluid reservoir is located on the back of the engine near the firewall. The top on the reservoir should be labeled as power steering fluid only.

Your oxygen sensor is bad, or the connection may be corroded. Luckily this is a part you can replace yourself. It unscrews from the exhaust manifold and is a relatively easy fix. I would buy it online, not at a dealer. Good luck!

Step 1.... Make sure you have the security code to your radio. Step 2.... Disconnect the Neg Battery connection. Step 3.... Grasp the mirror stem at its base, and rotate CLOCKWISE approximately 1/4 of a turn. Carefully and slowly disconnect small wire connector from base of mirror connector. DO NOT allow mirror to hang by these wires as they are EXTREMELY fragile and replacement is a @#)*^%^%$#! Step 4.... Match your replacement by WIRE Color… Read More
The switch is located on the driverside just past the fuses towards the break pedal.
Easy procedure but one with many steps. I would suggest buying a Haynes manual for this. They're available at most auto parts stores. Hope this helps!
Module master in Moscow, ID. can fix it. Check their website http://www.modulemaster.com/en/services/clock_modules.php You will have to remove the clock from the car and ship it. Look how to remove radio on this site for removing the clock. The cost is about $80 include shipping with 5 years warranty. All 1995, 1996, 1997 have this problem.
Reset the car Have you tried disconnecting the battery for a minute or two? If this is caused by a software problem that may help. Can you measure the output of the sensor? Unlikely causes: * On some cars it's possible to have air pockets in the coolant system - but it's unlikely that even Jaguar would put the sensor there. * The sensor may have been damaged if the car overheated.
Check the coolant pressure. If the pressure is too high the A/C clutch will not engage. If the pressure is within tolerance, test the A/C compressor and clutch.
Jack the drivers side rear tire up, and look under and up toward the gas cap. You'll need a 10mm socket to loosen the clamp. Also a 17mm wrench to release the the fuel filter connections. Loosen one side and allow the pressure to release out, you'll have a little gas flow. Watch your eyes. Pretty basic, but you'll need effort and patience. Good Luck
have you tried opening up your door and trying to fix it? my handle on the outside woulnt work so i opened it up and there is a linkage with a screw holding it together, adjusting this nut to the center most position fixed it. now it opens just fine. otherwise its a 250+ fix
I assume you have tried liquid wrench? I assume you have tried LiquidWrench?
Check the light switches that turn on the reading lights in rear. There is one on each back door next to the power window button. If one is left in the on position it will run your battery down over night. Generally, this is the result of a bad diode in the alternator. I had this happen to my '88 Town Car, so it wouldn't be surprising in an '89. What happens is that the… Read More
Check the fuse. If it is good, then find a good A/C shop and take it in for repair. Not a DIY job. I have the same vehicle. Does the compressor come on when you switch the ac on? You have to have the hood open to hear it. The ac won't come on if the ac coolant is low. There is a sight glass on the condeser (passanger side near the radiator). If it's… Read More
Inasmuch the installation is similar to the one found on my XJ6 86, this is very simple: - gently pull off both air conditioning knobs. If just pulling them off by hand does not work, use any tool allowing you to exert a gentle pull from behind the knob. The key here is to pull simultaneously from two diametrically opposed points. Otherwise, the inside part of the knob will break. Not much strength should be… Read More
This seems to be an ongoing problem with this car. Thru reading I found that the handles are easily broken. I found this answer on how to change them on here.

depends on the vehicle.....if its a domestic car the pump is not usually over $100 and usually a lot less ... on an Asian car they can run quite high...and depending on the car, they can take anywhere from 1 hour to 3 hours to change. A domestic usually takes about an hour to change.
1985 doesn't have cold start relay.
The question does not give enough information. If you want to install an aftermarket radio then I suggest you take it to a store who sells and installs aftermarket radios. The reason being the plug that Jaguar uses and that is pluged into the OEM radio has roughly 14 pins in it and a installer probibly has a connector which you will need to connect the cable to the aftermarket radio. On the other hand… Read More
Answer Fuel injectors are not opening. They open by electrical pulse from the ecu. You could have a short, a broken wire, perhaps a bad fuse or the ecu could be defective. You also might have a bad crack sensor on the front of the engine. ECU doesn't know the position of the cylinders therefore no activity to fuel injectors etc...
Replace the throttle potentiometer It's on the throttle body, but I would get a Haynes manual to do this procedure. Good luck!
If you're CERTAIN that it's fuel related, it could be a fuel pump that fails after it's run for a while. It could also be a partially plugged fuel filter. If you're only speculating that it's fuel related, it could also be an overheating electronic component that fails after it runs for a while. Coils are notorious for that, as are ignition modules. I have two 87s. I found the problem to be the large… Read More
Welcome to the world of Lucas electric. try cleaning the contacts on each side of fuse with a pencil eraser. 90% of all electric failure is due to corrosion on fuse connectors.
Apparently there is a white sticker on the under side of the bonnet on the driver's side that looks like a bar code (so I'm told). The last 4 digits are the code for the radio. Our car doesn't have the sticker so it hasn't helped us.
An air conditioner cools the air, obviously. But, as the air is cooled, the air can hold less moisture. It takes a lot of work for the AC system to remove humidity from the air. When you first turn on the AC it's often a good idea to switch over to "max", since the AC system will pull the humidity out of the air that's inside the vehicle then recirculate the now dryer air until… Read More
Usually the culprit is the contacts inside the window switches in the center console.If you carefully remove each switch you can pry the long sides of the switch away from rocker with a thin blade, you will have to do both sides of switch, carefully remove rocker and try not to loose the springs underneth. clean each contact with a pencil eraser and re-install. All switches are identical and the connector in console determines which… Read More
You have to remove the fuel tank. The pump is inside the tank in a plastic mount. Its about a 4 hour job in and out.
Assuming your 97 is quite the same as my 96 I'll Quote the drivers handbook."The button marked 'RESET' is used to clear the trip computer memory to reset all function displays to zero. It is used at the beginning of a journey or when the information is no longer required. To achieve this, press th 'RESET' button for a minimum period of five seconds, whenn '0.0' will be displayed. I hope this helped.Bud Sisto
drill a small hole behind the rear licence plate and use a coat hanger to find the release bar to hook and pull down
I may be wrong here, but I'm pretty sure the Intertia switch for a 95 - 97 is behind the beauty panel in the front passenger foot well, to the right. Remove one screw, pull little plastic cover off, inertia switch is forward of the computer. TRUNCK
