Silly question probably. But I have recently purchased my 1984 Jaguar Sovereign 4.2. The car was built in Browns Lane, exported to Switzerland and has ended up with me in Germany. So here is the question: why does the Temp dial show Fahrenheit? It is marked 65, 70, 75, 80, 85. Which I am willing to bet is not Centigrade
Just one of those things, Kit; the Del is an American product - and getting whole numbers in C would be more trouble than anybody considered warranted. So they are all in F irrespective of market - as David implies.
Subtract ‘32’ and halve the remainder it’s a close to C as makes no difference - specific cabin temps on either scale is only relevant for some testing…
They mention AC but the picture shows an non-AC car
The S1 has a HOT dial, off……10, and if AC is fitted there’s a second dial on the left side of the radio doing the same but it says COLD; instead of the jags badge. Both dials read the cabin air temperature and adjust automatically.
Point of the degree scale is probably that the Mk2 unit is supposed to be more automatic, designed to keep a specific temperature. The heater only cars had different scales that are a bit odd at first. And some cars, maybe the XJS or some markets, hat the cold temperature in blue and the hot in red, same dial.
