[xj] Trip computer

My trip computer works sometimes.but don’t work when
pushing buttons. Is this a common problem. Is this unit
connected to main ECU?

Assuming you have display, Daniel - the unit has power, and the fault
depends on what functions are missing…

The computer has two power feeds; constant, ‘standby’, power (car brown,
computer purple) and green, power with ign ‘on’. Actually, there is also
a third; red/blue to dim the display with lights on…:slight_smile:

‘Time’ is run by the internal clock - pushed, it initially shows driving
time, then switch to normal clock function. "avspd’ is computed using the
clock and the speed transducer on the gearbox. "dist’ is computed from the
transducer directly. ‘ave’ is computed from transducer and ECU for average
fuel consumption. ‘inst’ uses the transducer and the ECU to compute instant
fuel consumption. And ‘fuel’ uses ECU give total fuel consumed…so…?

All data, except clock and some transducer data, goes through an interface
unit…

Adventures souls have accessed the computers internals for repairs - which
requires some nous, referred

Had the trip computer out today took it out checked

12.58v on full time #6 power supply, # 7 lights on power
11.54v, ign on power #8 11.87v engine off…I opened the
unit up took a soldering iron to all solder joints no
differance still 8888 on display last week it decided to
work for a while until I pushed reset then 8888 again so I
will let it have battery power over nite to I guess
rethink about what it’s doing…so next if that gives no
joy will adventure into the boot to check connections to 2
and 3 interface unit and speed transducer and see if they
are making good connections…speedo works fine so I know
signal is working from tranmission…any thoughts I tried
to check out www.backglass website buy no page

Which is the brief display at start-up, before the computer starts
computing…:slight_smile:

In principle, in ‘time’ a working computer should show the clock - this does
not rely on any external inputs. If it refuses to show the clock, stays in
8888 when ‘time’ is selected; it implies the fault is entirely internal -
excluding the very faint possibility that the ‘time’ button itself does not
connect/switch…

Nominally, the standard procedure for computer malfunctions is to disconnect
all power for some seconds - which you have already tried. This is ancient
technology and I have been unable to locate a wiring diagram - but a guess
is that the computer microchip has failed…just a guess mind you.

That the thing works occasionally implies an intermittent fault - which does
not make things easier. Being handy with a soldering iron; you may locate a
replacement chip - I don’t think that seeking external fault sources will
lead anywhere - but no harm will come of that either…

philipE,

"seems to be a problem with every unit ever made"?   I have properly

functioning trip computers in 3 Series III XJs and an XJ-S convertible and
have found them to be very accurate and reliable. Over the past 15 years I
have never seen the 8888 problem in any of my Jaguars and all my trip
computers function properly (although I did have to disassemble the one in
my 1990 V12 VdP to replace a burned out bulb and adjust it for US gallons
instead of Imperial gallons). I have seen the 8888 problem mentioned
occasionally on this list, but not very often. Replacement trip computers
can usually be purchased on ebay for about $50 with shipping included, in
case you needed one.

   The interface unit between the EFI and trip computer is located in

the boot just beneath the sliding roof motor. It’s the black box with “XK
4.2L 6 cylinder” printed on it. This is shown in Figures 18.1 and 18.2 of
the Jaguar Series III Electrical Guide (S-57) manual. This is how the
fueling signal is provided to the trip computer.

It would certainly tell correct time, Carl - the clock data are internal to
the unit. But ‘…does some other stuff…’ probably means that transducer
data distance and time related should be correct. All fuel data should be
missing and incorrect …?

The transducer on the BW 66 is long gone. so, where it gets

I could mess with it and get fuel data from tapping an
injector. And dampen the pulses from the VSS output of the

Wisely so, Carl…

I do assume that you have a correct speedo reading - and the original Jag
speedo needs very specific inputs for ‘some’ speedo transducer, data which
is shares with the driving computer. Fuel data is computed from adding
injector opening times - but while initiated by the ECU it is converted by
the interface unit, specific to each ECU/engine type…

So without either, the fuel data given by the driving computer must be
purely random, if any at all. You don’t elucidate as to what you are reading
on the computer…?

Bu using the injector signal directly is an interesting thought…:slight_smile:

The interface in the boot is the next item for me to check.
I have been through a number of trip units, but I still

The interface unit is arguably specific to the ECU and the diff ratio/tyre
size, Lou - though nominally the tyre rotations is supposedly taken care of
by the transducer…

The driving computer is normally very precise, but comparing computer
read-out with actual mileage/fuel fill has some pitfalls. Obviously, if the
odometer is at variance with the actual distance it will give wrong
information to the computer. Another factor is fuel pressure; the ECU
delivers injector opening times as a basis for the computer’s fuel
consumption computations.

If the fuel pressure is wrong, the actual consumption will be at variance
with the computed data. And strangely enough, if fuel pressure is low,
increased petrol consumption may result as more pedal is used - and
excessive pressure may also increase consumption as fuel is not completely
combusted. And as hot fuel has less density than cold , more opening times
are required for the same power output…:slight_smile:

The computer is also a good diagnostic tool for detecting leaks - external
or within the injectors themselves. I assume that the ‘fuel’ readings, fuel
actually used, is also wrong…?

In addition to the interface unit - have a look at other factors
mentioned…

If you want a variety of info about the workings of the TC
and Interface unit, go to the ‘‘Search Forums’’ on this site
and search the LUMPS section for ‘‘trip computer’’.

A lot of ‘‘lumpers’’, in the course of swapping a GM V8 into
the beast, come to the issue of making the TC and Inteface
talk to the new computer and determine its fuel flow
characteristics, and display the proper info… A fellow
named Lockheed has posted some really good explanations of
how they all work together and what adjustments can be made
if you are handy with a soldering iron.

I came across this info during the course of my own swap.–

Happy Spring to all Jag Folks. I have not though much about
driving the English Car-- 83 XJ6-- since today we are
enjoying -12 Centigrade.!!! That’s about 100 miles North
of Toronto Ontario----------------Canada.
I was browsing the Forum and smiled at entries in mid
January from some of our regulars regarding the Trip
Computer. Unlike some— I owned 3 Series III and all
the TC failed and were replaced by used – almost as bad
bits. Its hard to accept a person having 20 plus S III with
no issues. So when I crawl out of the snow bank----- soon—
I will be on the look out for ANOTHER TC. What is the
latest supply of said item?

The current one works – then there is blank. for weeks.
Then a miracle— you start car and time is there-- and
various other digits-- who knows if reliable. It gets old
explaining to others what use the TC is. LOL–
