A temporary fix learned in northern Ontario in -40F winters: a
mechanic’s trouble light with a 60 - 100 watt lightbulb will generate
more than sufficient heat overnight to keep everything warm in car
including doors. Also kept a second light on in engine compartment as a
temp block heater. Crude but effective.
One note of caution: a trouble light with a 100-watt bulb will melt
vinyl (don’t ask me how I know). We always ordered lower wattage light
bulbs for the shop to prevent this from happening.
Now I know that most Jags don’t have vinyl but I did want to point out
that if you wish to use Michael’s suggestion you need to be careful what
the trouble light is in contact with.
