How can you disable the immobilizer system on a Rover 400?

you can't. simple as that. but if i'm taking you up right and you are genuinely having problems with the immobiliser then i'd reccommend you use a second and last higher digit to sort the problem out for good. just say your code is 3545 don't enter it, but instead enter 3646 and you should here a click from the drivers side engine. thats it. it worked for me and i never had a problem since. by the way if you don't know the original keycode then you won't be able to up the second and last digit accordingly so will not work. hope this helps.

What is the firing order for a 1989 Jaguar XJ6?

The cylinder order from the front of the engine is 1-2-3-4-5-6. With that in mind, the firing order is 1-5-3-6-2-4 The Distributor spins clockwise, and the distributor leads are wired the same. The # 1 dist lead is the left most front distributor plug, so if you're looking at the distributor from the front of the car as if standing at the bumper, it would be like the crude diagram that follows: 5 1 3 4 6 2

The inertia switch on a 93 XJ6 should be in the same place as on a 94 XJ6, which is on the kick panel on the drivers side. It is a little black box with a button protruding from it.

How do you repair a 1996 Jaguar XJ6 that is running rough and has a code of multiple cylinder misfires?

I'm not sure how old this question is since these are not date stamped. I am new to this site and may have purchased your car since you posted this. Anyway here goes.

I just purchased a 1996 Jaguar XJ6 from a Dealer who just traded it in the same day. The check engine light was on but the car looked clean and ran great so I thought I would take a chance. This was an incredible risk as I have never owned a Jaguar. I have learned everything so far from message boards.

The first thing I purchased was a handheld OBD II code reader from AutoZone to read the check engine codes. It was the best $90.00 I ever spent. Anyway I trapped similar cylinder misfire codes and was able to determine it was the Ignition Coil. There is one per cylinder so be prepared to spend some money. I had one go bad and the car suddenly ran bad so I was able to trace the problem quite easily. Once I trapped the code I could tell which cylinder, swap two coils, and verify the problem followed the coil.

My suggestion is to first replace your spark plugs. I suggest Bosch Platinum +4 from Auto Zone. If that does not resolve the problem you need to replace your ignition coils. My car has 90,000 miles so I replaced all 6. AutoZone can actually get them for approx. $100.00 per coil. Don't be too quick to choke as everyone else wants $280.00-$350.00 per coil.

I have also had the same problem on a 1995 Vanden Plas and the solution was simple, expensive and difficult to locate. The part you will need is a valve cover (OEM #NBC2564CB) and since they are no longer being inventoried by the manufacturer, it will be difficult to find. Expect to pay about $845.00 US to get the part. What happens is the matterial that lines the inside of the cover deteriorates and allows the spark plugs to arc, causing the problems you brought up.

Good luck.

Why does the rear wheel wobbles?

Th most common cause is a bent wheel. It can also be caused by a loose lug nuts, a loose or worn out bearing, or a tire that is out of round. As this is RWD, it can also be a bent rear axle.

How does one replace a rear view mirror on a 2000 S-Type the mirror is off but cannot figure how to get the clip back on to secure the new mirror?

If the button(metal tab on windshield) is off there is a glue you can buy to reglue it. After following the directions on the glue package take youe mirror and slide it from bottom up using a strong even force while wiggling it into place, also keep an eye on any electrical wiring which needs to stay in place(ie rain sensor and auto dim mirrors) professional techs break about 1 out of every 50 windshields during this repair so be careful.

Spark Plugs and Wires

How can you replace spark plugs on a 2001 Jaguar XK8?

Had the same problem with 1990 Sovereign 4 L. If you still have the Jag tool kit you will find a long Hexagonal sparkplug remover , with an accessory insert bar.

The jag remover has a plastic insert which grips the top of the plugs, gently but strongly enough to lift the plugs out, after undoing them (anti-clock ). If you haven't this tool, you could find out the recommended plug sizes from Auto Spares Shop, and measure the diameter of the plugs hexagonal . On the XJ6 this was 17mm.

Considerable force was required to initially loosen each plug. If you have no plastic insert in the sparkplug hex spanner, perhaps just go fishing , after undoing , with each cylinder's sparkplug lead.


1. remove the six 7mm screws covering the coils on the center of each cam cover. 2. next using a small screw driver press with you finger on each coil connector and at the same time use the screw driver on the lip of the connector to slide it off carefully. doo this for all 4 coils. 3. lift the wiring harness out of the channel, note where the harness enters at the rear of the cover. 4. remove the 7mm bolts holding the coils. remove the coils in order so you but them back in the same spot. unlike the 1990. the spark plugs are 5/8 size spark plug socket. 5. in auto. "Lefty loosey/tighty righty. turn the plugs counter clockwise. 6. using a extion magnet remove the plugs. DO NOT let anything fall into the holes. check the inside walls of the spark plug tubes for oil, the most common cause of misfire is oil fowling in the tubes, water ingess to the coil cover. 7. replace plugs with factory or tripple platnium plugs only.

8. when reinstall after you connect the coil wiring harness run a bead of silicone around the wiring harness where it enters the cover this prevents water from running down the harness and into the coil cover.

How do you open the trunk of a 1995 jaguar xjr The remote key and trunk button all do not work Help please?

A couple of options exist, first, there is a key hole, although it doesn't look like a typical automotive keyhole, it is round, similar to the door keyhole and is located near the license plate. Secondly, check to see if the circuit breaker has tripped, or the fuse has blown. This seems as the most likely culprit since both device fail to open your trunk.

How do you fix a fuel fail code 24 problem on a 92 xj-6 jaguar?

The ignition amplifier is bad or the connection is corroded.

The part is easy to get to, and is easily replaceable, but I would not suggest trying to test it yourself unless you know how to use a voltmeter.
If you want to replace it I would first buy a Haynes manual and follow the instructions (they have pictures)!

Good luck!

Electric Windows

How do you reset the power windows on a 1999 Jaguar XK8 so they do not go down a half inch everytime you open and close the doors?

Hold the window buttons on the door and fully open the windows, Hold the button for approx 15 secs until you here a bleep. Repeat holding the buttons to close the windows fully and hold for a further 15 secs until the bleep is heard. This should reset the windows

Wrong. There is no beep. Close the doors driver and pass. Engage the windows fully up. Turn ignition to on without starting the engine. Allow 10 secs for computer to reset the windows. Turn ignition off and remove key. Return key and try windows. Same thing happened to me after windows where iced up.

Did not get a chance to register yet - so it's anonymous. Anyway:

Neither of previous answers agrees with the manual for my '00 XK8 (unless '99 differs). The manual states:

Ignition on. Drop window fully down, hold extra 5 sec. Raise window fully up, hold button extra 5 sec. Repeat for other window.

Now, if you are losing your programming (windows, memory seats, etc.), forums agree that this is an early sign of failing battery. Drops voltage when starting engine and thus loses settings.

Good luck, Robert.

"If everything else fails, read the manual."

Some people like me have lost their manual (following a theft)! Manuals are now out of print for my model.

The above (hold-down for 5 seconds) works for my 2000 XKR. In fact you only need to hold the window operation button down for about 2-3 seconds until you hear a slight muffled click, at which point you can release the button. Im sure XKRs and XK8s will be the same.

When your battery dies completely you need to know this. In such a circumstance it is also useful to know that you can get inside the boot (trunk) manually via a keyhole in between the K and R letters on the XKR logo on the back panel of your car. I presume it also works between the K letter and 8 digit on the XK8. Even the Automobile Association car rescue man did not know that and had to inject some power by power-boosting under the bonnet to get access to the boot and thereby the battery. An XKR owning friend later told me how I could have avoided that call-out!

Jaguar experts seem to have answered this question fully, but when i first read it, i thought it was similar to the Audi TT. These are relatively small inside, and the air pressure could cause the doors to bounce back when closing. The cure is to drop the window a little as the door is unlocked, then raise it again after closing.

What is the process to reset the windows for a 2002 Ford Thunderbird convertible?

In the owners manual you will find the complete instruction for doing it. If I remember correctly all you do is lower both windows. then one window at a time simply raise the window and hold the up window button for 5 seconds more and the window will reset itself so it drops when the door is open to clear the weatherstrip molding on the convertible top or the hardtop.

I have a 2002 Ford Thunderbird and on our T-Bird to reset the windows you turn the key to the on position and roll the driver window down and once the window is in the down position immediately hold the button in the down position for 2 seconds then immediately roll the window to the up position and hold the button in the up position for 2 seconds. Repeat the process for the passenger window.

How do you change the alternator on a 1985 Jaguar?

Two ways. First one... remove the air pump, remove the A/C and discharge the system, and then the alternator is right there and easy to get out. Takes about 4 or 5 hours this way and an A/C recharge. Second one.. The right way, requires patience. From underneath, slacken and remove the belt. Remove the adjustor bracket. Loosen the power steering hoses from the lower crossmember, and there is a plastic strap that hold the hoses you can't see that will probably break on the top of the cossmember.... no biggie. Now the hard part, remove the bolts on top of the alternator, 1/2" socket and wrench. There are two, front and back. The thing falls out.. sometimes the swaybar will need to be loosened on just the drivers side. Install is the reverse, with some patience. About 3 hours.

Where can you buy a replacement antenna for a 1990 Jaguar?

It will be a dealer's item try I have seen them on Ebay for $17. The actual antenna mast with the toothed strap that extends on the bottom and makes the antenna go up and down is rather easy to replace if it is just bent. If there are pieces of the toothed strap broken inside the antenna assembly or the round gear that moves the strap is worn you need to open the antenna housing up and look inside fish the broken bits out and check the gear for signs of wear if the round gear is worn look for a whole new asembly on Ebay as the gear cannot be found (at least I have not been able to). Whomever sels the replacement mast will supply the installation steps. bassicaly you feed the toothed strap from the mast into the hole the gear will cach it and wind it down properly. Just turn the radio on and off a few times and the antenna will get itself leveled properly...

A horrible task

The entire rear diff unit has to be removed. It's a huge job not suited to non-professionals. Expect to pay for about 8 man hours plus parts and don't even think about taking this to a non Jag mechanic (so the hours will be expensive). Most Jag owners try to get as much rear end work out of the way all at the same time because removing and refitting the rear end is so expensive/painful.
