Just bought a 2005 Jaguar XJ8L 2 days ago and drove it to work this morning. Nearly had 2 accidents because the "night mode" on my mirrors (side and rearview) make it so dark, it's impossible to see the cars around me! I checked owners' manuals online, and don't see the answer on any forums except to say that the feature is "automatic." Does that mean I cannot adjust or disable this feature? Maybe just buy non-Jag mirrors? I find this really frightening.

A order the enters the cavity of the vehicle immediately after I turn on the ignition. The smell is best described as a sweaty body. Dissipates after a few minutes. Someone told me to change a filter under the hood on the passenger side up against the fire wall; which I did to no avail.

Trying to find the fuel filter on the xj8 05 jag

Car was repaired after it would not start. Battery was good and starter motor cranked the engine but fuel would not ignite. The car repair involved replacing a leaking hose that affected the air flow sensing at the fuel injectors. While driving thereafter noticed the cruise control would not work.

was running fine before I parked it for two weeks and battery went dead.

I get a signal to check brake light. The left brake light bulb is out. Both the bulb and fuse are good. When I press the brake petal I hear a click by the shift lever. Any ideas on what going on?

possible a heater coil or ??

Discovered car with lights flashing after sitting for 3 days. Put key in ignition and started up & lights stopped flashing. Turned off and lights started again. Tried to restart would not start but engine would crank. Key also stuck in ignition. Eventually turn of key would not even turn over engine but not because of no battery strength just would not turn over. Hooked up jumper battery and same would turn over but not start, key stuck. Eventually turn of key gave nothing but still juice in battery and jumper. A security problem??? Maybe battery not enough power. Have not checked age of battery or strength. Looks brand new. HELP!!!!
