Jaguar: V8..dashboard..zero (temp, fuel, speedo and revs…

My Jaguar x350 3.6 V8...
My Jaguar x350 3.6 V8 SE alarm has gone off recently 3 times in the past week for no reason, then yesterday I lost power on the motorway at70mph. All the dashboard dials dropped to zero (temp, fuel, speedo and revs) as if the ignition had been switched off. I indicated left to pull over to the hard shoulder but indicators did not work. The hazard lights worked fine and I pulled into the hard shoulder and switched off the ignition. I then switched it on again and all was fine. Engine ran fine and so I carried on home. No problem since. Battery test at Kwik Fit is fine. Any clues? Please advise. regards XXXXX XXXXX 212566

Sorry for the delay.

 

The early X350 did have some electrical issues specifically some electrical connector pins that loosen up causing this exact problem. You may experience all the warnings light on, gauges drop to zero, transmission in limp mode, power steering defaults to limited assist and the air suspension may go into default of full firm. Of course without reading all the stored vehicle faults with a Jag tool this cannot be confirmed. Another issue I see is with water leaking specifically a clogged sunroof drain in the rear causing water to leak into the electrical connectors under the rear seat cushion.

Many thanks Richard. I do not have a sunroof. Where would the elctrical connector pins be located and do you recommend any particular part to be replaced? Would ignition module be a likely suspect? Regards. Mike
Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 11 years ago
Ok then we should not have to worry about the water ingress. Jag has a bulletin explaining the pin check/replacement. This is not an easy DIY task but I can send over the info.

Hi Richard. Ok many thanks. The bulletin sounds useful even if I get someone else to do it. Thanks. Regards. Mike
