Re: Reversing Camera - Blue Screen

There are some Bluetooth devices around now which saves a lot of wiring.

Software upgrades

Hi
Does anyone know of a decent independent with the full autologic software or in fact a sympathetic main dealer who have access to the SDD and configuration files to upgrade my car infotainment system for the DAB installation?
Jaguar do not supply the wiring looms. So may be reluctant do do it.

Re: Castrol 0/20 5/20 edge professional

Hi
I’ve just this minute sent Mr.Castrol an email. After punching my car details into their website and although it comes up with all the correct info. it says ‘no suitable products found... contact your dealer’.
It’s little things like that, that annoy me! :mrgreen:

Re: ANTI LOCK LIGHT on X300

Take a look at the overvoltage relay..... if it’s the same as the XJ40. From what I can remember it’s located in the boot l/h side the largest on there!
Also check for swarf/dirt on the phonic wheels where the sensors mount.

Re: DAB UPGRADE

Haha not too certain of the differences either. But I do know now that Jaguar, and others no doubt have had to bring out new tuners!
