Yep, a lot of people on this forum, and the UK Jag forum use CTEK charger/maintainers. They are 'intelligent' chargers and reduce the charging current right back to zero when the battery is fully...

Dan

Sorry, no ideas really, it's never actually happened to me (yet !) so I've never needed to address the prob. I just remember others posting up about it but I can't remember who they were.

If the needle is staying put when you switch off then that's a not problem with the sensor, it's a problem with the gauge needle or more precisely the needle drive.

If you look in 'X350 How To' in the 'Sticky' section at the top of the subforum there is a trio of posts about key fobs.

To be clear ... it isn't the key that has to be programmed, it's the car.

'Programming a key' is registering the i/d number in the key's transponder, or the key's remote chip, into the car's...

Is it like that permanently, or is it okay again next time you start the car (overnight, say) ?

If it's the latter then like Meirion says they do that occasionally; I've had it a two, possibly...

Thanks, but I was simply recalling a discovery someone else made a year or three ago, maybe here, maybe on the UK/EU 350 forum.

I can't remember who it was now, but the credit's theirs.

Sit in the rear car with all the doors closed and wait until the courtesy lights in the front go out ... do the rear manual lights still work ?

Hi Alec

I'm afraid you've posted in the wrong subforum, this is for XJ s from 2003 to 09.

Sorry, but offhand I'm not sure what the correct subforum is for '94.

Bear in mind that WSS M97B44-D is actually a Ford spec (Jag was part of Ford at the time) so you should be able to get the stuff from a Ford agent, and probably cheaper !

There's also Shell Spirax S4 MSP which I think is marketed in Canada but not the US (nor the UK/EU). It has identical viscocities etc to the M.1375.4 specification.
