On my journey home after purchasing my latest car a 2003 Jaguar S-Type 2.5 V6 Auto, The head unit went blank, the radio stopped working and the climate control was pumping out very hot air. It was raining at the time so the journey home was not comfortable as the windows could not be opened.
It’s at times like this that you think you have bought a pup not a Jag.
Next day I took it to my garage who looked at it. over the course of a few weeks we have decided that we need to treat the problems as separate issues.
So I have bought a replacement Water Heater Valve after reading that this is a common problem with the S-Type. This I am told may cure the pumping out of Hot Air.
In the mean time I have tried looking for Fuses that may have caused the head unit to fail. I have also looked at Fuses that would cause the Radio to fail. Results Nothing is blown “Nada”.
I am a “Googleier” or a person who thinks that Google has the answer to everything. but once again all it comes down to is the Water Heater Valve.
As a retired Computer Service manager I can’t get my head around this nor can I believe that there is no common fuse or fault code for this problem.
I need your help please I am willing to do almost anything provided it’s free or at least cheap.
Please excuse my attempt at humour and if you ignore that there is a serious question here.
