2003 jaguar x-type: sedan..the engine compartment fuse box..blown…

Customer Question
my daughter owns a 2003...
my daughter owns a 2003 jaguar x-type sedan. the directional indicators and high beams do not work. i checked the directional 15 amp fuse in the engine compartment fuse box and it is blown. when i replaced the 15 amp fuse and turned on the directionals and the high beams, they both worked for about 10-15 seconds. during this time period, the right directional signal was very loud and the sound was coming from the center console area. could this problem be caused by a short cicuit / defective relay or maybe the column directional switch.... (feeding an over load surge to a relay in another part of the dash board console)?
please advise your thoughts. she really can't afford bringing it to a jaguar dealer.

Hello and welcome to justanswer.com

 

You most likely have a short in the wiring or a problem with one of the tail light grids. Disconnect the plug on each tail light lens grid and look for any burn spots. Also we should look behind the dash at the harness for any damage. If you could go under the driver side dash and look directly above the brake pedal. You will see a V shaped piece of metal sticking up and the dash harness running just in back of this bracket. SOmetimes the harness will chafe on this causing a short.
