Re: ANTI LOCK and Teves PUMP question!

I am afraid you are asking more questions than i can answer , all i can do is give you a brief idea of how you might proceed , to answer your question about the ABS light , no the relay will not cure that problem , you need to fix the fault '' 27 '' , the relay is for the pump and my manual says it ...

Re: ANTI LOCK and Teves PUMP question!

The ABS light is on because you have a fault in the ABS system , this is not the cause of the pump running continuously , this could be a faulty accumulator , faulty combined pressure switch [ on top of the pump colored blue or maybe a faulty pump relay [ black base in the drivers side footwell ] . ...

Re: Jaguars visit RR, revival weekend

Sounds like an interesting day out , i agree with Naki that it would be fairly well attended but people need plenty of notice to plan things , do you know when these visits are available ?

Re: HELP!! 3.2S non start and I think i've made it worse!

Bit late now but i'm just wondering if you've just managed to flatten the jump pack and a new battery would sort it , xj40's need a full battery to start and not many jump packs would be enough on their own to start it so draining it by reversing the terminals it's possible there's just not enough j...

Re: 3.2S Won't Behave/Starting/Running

Well if the head has to come off it's not the end of the world , i just hope the diagnoses is correct but the pressure test should show if something's adrift , as Katar says the haynes manual is pretty good and it's straight forward just a lot of work , the timing is not difficult just be sure to se...
