Every time I restart the car, the clock, radio, blower controls loose settings and return to factory settings (or at least I assume they are factory settings because it is always the same). The clock resets to 1am, the radio turns vol down to zero and looses memory of last station, the CD looses track of last played track, temp resets to Celsius instead of Fahrenheit, auto control temp goes back to 72 (or equivalent celsius temp), etc. I have disconnected the battery for 20 mins with no change. I have disconnected the battery and touched jumped positive lead to ground to drain capacitors, with no change. Also, seat does not go back all the way, but this may be unrelated
what do you have to do to remove the mirror from the piece that is attached to the windwshield
Is about to purchase a 2003 Jaguar s-type. 110k miles for $2700. Owner said the vehicle takes a few seconds to go once put into drive. Said a mechanic said it was a bad seronoid. I think there are four total in the transmission, and I'm sure that the transmission will need to be taken apart and at that point might as well change the remaining ones as well. Trying to see if it is worth the purchase. Needing it to drive from phoenix to Las Vegas twice a month without getting stranded in the mountains.
Replaced window motor hit switch and it just clicks at the module. Tried a different module did same thing just clicks. All other windows go down even with the global key fib but the drivers window!
