Congrats on getting a nice car. awa is correct about
the difference in engine control systems. Mr. Temple
US Jaguar National Service Manager informs us: “a very
limited number of cars, different Engine Management
System and transmission from the regular XJS, the need
for a LapTop computer and Zytek software to
OBD2 was not used in 1992 when the car was produced.
Your car and all of this year used OBD(1) Diagnostic
Trouble Codes. The DTCs run from #11 to #88 not
inclusive. You can read the DTC through the trip
computer by switching OFF the ignition then switching
ON the ignition. The CHECK ENGINE warning light will
display and then the DTC will show 5 seconds later on
the trip computer. If more than one DTC is flagged in
the ECM memory only the highest will be displayed.
The remaining DTCs will be displayed as the previous
is erased from memory.
The EMS data link connector is located in the left
footwell. This is a RS 232 communications which has
many types of connections and no standard causing
connection errors between devices and data transfer,
erroneous data transfer and no data transfer. So the
possibility of using a different program and cable to
connect a computer interface is slim.
So, to read codes you can use the trip computer. FF15
is air temp sensor. Located on the air inlet on the
filter cover yo uprobably had this disconnected when
starting the car. It will reset in 50 engine start
cycles unless you “set the code” again.
The other way is to get the Jaguar Dealer lap top and
cable connector and reset the code.
If anyone does have access to the lap top and can copy
the software the program may be translated to
“english”.— SilverXJRS email@example.com wrote:
I am new to Jaguar. I have a nice 1993 Silver
XJR-S. I stupidly
turned the car on (to show off to friends) while the
assembly was disconnected. The car immediately
threw FF15 engine
As such, I need to clear it. However, I don’t know:
- where the
OBD reader is, and 2) what OBD reader to purchase in
order to do
