In reply to a message from JagFab sent Wed 17 Oct 2007:
Jaguar probably had very good reasons for what appears to be
a simple re-positioning of that hood light switch to the
left side on the '93 models. For example, they introduced a
twin electric fan ‘cooling pack’ which required a new
radiator top panel and a completely revised wiring harness
design. It therefore made sense to incorporate the hood
switch wiring in the LS (left side) harness along with all
the electrics from the cooling fans and their control relay
module control which is located in the left front wing void.
It was an engineering decision - not that of the bean
counters this time! :-)–
The original message included these comments:
…most likely because it saved them a few pence per car on
wiring. It must have made sense to an accountant. Never mind
that he/she overlooked the cost of re-designing the loom;
I’m being simplistic, I know, but come on: with the beneift
of hindsight, does this kind of thing make sense to ANYONE?
