Mirror is hanging from housing by electrical wire connectors

the amber engine lite stays on, and the restricted performance flashes on than goes away, but keeps doing that.

My email address is catlastchance@aol.com

The car made a noise of clicking when I tried to start, the lights came on and the radio played so battery is not dead?

WHERE ARE THE FUSES LOCATED FOR THE DOOR WINDOWS

Need a shop in my area to give me a price on replacing timing chain in my 98 xk8 jaguar.

Now the top won't even start to fold down but the back windows go down. Do you think it's a fuse or the motor?

Started after I hooked up battery after sitting for 6 mos in storage. Ran a 1/2 hr. Went to start again , cranked but no start? Gas in tank! 1st time this happened since buying car.? no fuses blown! possible fuel pump? Location of pumps. No pressure on fuel rail fitting.

I just want to know if the XK8 is getting more expensive and if so tell me why thank you so much

Once engine cools off it will start.

The parking brake on light is coming on and the parking brake is not on. It dings every time I accelerate from a complete stop and the red light is on that's his break in addition 2 the parking brake on light any ideas? How can I turn the light off?

I disconnected my dead battery in order to take it to battery shop for replacement while waiting for ride to take me to dealer. I had closed my trunk in the meantime, but now can not get in the trunk - my remote and trunk release in vehicle do not work with battery disconnected. Obviously, there should be a manual way to get into the trunk to replace the dead battery

Whe cold start car there is sort of alight tapping sound on the passenger side of engine after a few minutes it seems to go away -- what could this be

I drive a jaguar XK8 1998 convertible. The car is driven often, pretty much every day. There was a hurricane with a lot of rain, and when I got in the car, there was condensation on the inside. The car starts normally but the dashboard lights don't come on, so the car won't shift gears. If I manually make the gears shift I can drive around fine just without a dashboard. Checked all the fuses they are good, and I can make the lights come on so I know they work, its not a problem with the battery either. Any ideas?

Each time I try to close the convertible top, the motor runs extremely slowly and final latching of top is very slow and difficult. I would like a step by step instruction of how to change the fluid in the windshield reservoir.

The fluids are fresh. I think the hose may have come off somewhere near the latch because that's where seems like all the fluid came from. How do I get the top back down?

The top wouldn't go down and all the fluid came out into the dome lights. The back windows won't go up and the passenger window repeatedly lowers when I press the convertible button. The fluid was fresh.

Problem occured just once

Prpblem occured just once

We have had 2 mechanics look at the problem 2 separate times.

They each had different solutions and after spending thousands of dollars the check engine light is on again.
