Bruce,

According to the information on page 44 of one of my XJ6 Series IIII

Maintenance Handbook, Fuse #1 in the Headlamp Fuse Box is for the “Radiator
Cooling Fan (where fitted)”. It is a 8/15A fuse, Unipart Number GFS415.

Regards,

Paul M. Novak

Thanks for the prompt replies - I located it in my copy of
the S57 but would have never thought to look at the cooling
system for a fuse in the headlight fuse box!–

Where else would it be ? That’s nothing illogical, Bruce.
Jaguar’s don’t have illogical things. They
have ‘‘interesting design features’’ :slight_smile:

Let’s be grateful that it isn’t one of those hidden fuses,
secreted away in some nook or cranny in a dastardly manner

Cheers

Yep, according to my wiring diagram, #1 is for a radiator
fan. Hmmm… Good place to put it. Why didn’t I think of
that?–

I’ve not delved into that area for a while. but, I ave a
vague recollection that the fuse ID’s are in the owner’s
manual.

And, that one of the clips in that box is for a spare!!

My Jaguar travails continue.
