Hi Richard,Have a similar problem...
Hi Richard,Have a similar problem with a 97 XK8. In this case, the headlights work fine. The problem is that the tail, side marker, & license plate lights will not turn off. The only way to get them to turn off is to remove the lamp relay.Thanks

Front lights work correctly, high / low beam, front fog lights work correctly
Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 7 months ago

Ok thanks.

This is usually a problem with the lamp control module which is located next to the trunk fuse box. Disconnect the 28 way yellow connector to see if the lights also turn off. If you have a digital multimeter we can test the circuit.

Hi Richard,The rear lamp control turns on the tail, side marker, & license plate lights individually. As such, the control has checked out okay. Have noted that by removing the tail light relay this will all turn off all 3 of the above mentioned.Please continue to research and determine root cause of failure, thanks, Kyle
