Was diagnosed as a faulty Navigation unit, which has been replaced with a second hand unit.
Hopefully all will be sorted now!
Where is located the navigation unit?

The navigation unit is in the boot, behind an access panel on the left hand side, near the top.

Default Blue tooth module fuse location

[QUOTE=jaguarxfv8;799831]No it wasn't flood damaged I bought it brand new in 2009. but I live in north canada and the winter are rough (under 50 degrees) and with all the snow my boots bring into the car it's possible it had soak the mat floor.

i found out my bluetooth module has a fuse burnt, so it might be why I have a problem and that my display screen had fault.
I bought a new one, we'll see if it fix my problem.[/QUOTE
where is the fuse located, #???

Plugged in the bypass loop and looked up and my screen - no more flickering(!)

I'm irrationally optimistic that this pretty definitively calls out the Sirius module as bad/dead and the good news is that they are pretty cheap on the 'bay.

Last dumb question of the year: Since I never use Sirius radio, is there any harm in just leaving the loop bypass in place? Is there anything else that won't function? (Ok, that was 2 dumb questions...)

edit:
So, I put everything back together and left the bypass in place to keep the Sirius module out of the loop - everything works great now, and as a bonus I can now pair my phone for the first time -
I am having the same issues and do not use the situps module. Where can I purchase a bypass loop?

Just curious if the dealerships have tried this...
The dealership (actually multiple Jaguar dealerships have had the car multiple times since 2015 for this issue. No resolution.

I gave them the bulletins numerous times.

Now we are in 2019 (4 years later) JLR finally got involved and they replaced the XM module and the blue tooth module. They had my car for two months on two occasions. I got the car back in March and it has happened four times again since getting the car back. I go into my car and poof- all the XM presents have vanished for no reason. Still also have the flashing white screen issue.

1. While driving, my infotainment system screen, while on any mode (AM, FM, XM, CD or Nav) while driving, will flash a white screen on and off. When it happens, the audio is NOT interrupted, but the screen flashes a white screen momentarily and then goes back to the screen it was initially on. This can happen 1-5 times within a single 20-minute drive. Some days it won't happen but then other days it can happen any number of times. It has nothing to do with going under bridge or tunnel, etc. Has nothing to do with losing a signal because the audio remains in tact and can happen on an open road with no obstructions.

2. XM presets being lost. For four years i have complained to the dealership that out of nowhere my XM presets get cancelled and lost. Typically this happens between 1-3 times ever week or every other week. On a few occasions it happened 2 times in one day. It does NOT happen when I am driving. I could be driving to work and all presets are there. I go to lunch all presets are there and then by end of the day I go to leave to go home, get in the car, and all of the presets have vanished! I have to reset all of them each time which is a royal pain.

I had read there could be a low voltage reading a while back, I had that checked but it was fine, I eventually replaced the battery anyway. Still happened. Then I was told there was an update, but was not for the 2011 model year.

Please let me know if you have these precise issues as well with your XF and if you have had any resolution. Obviously the car is out of warranty but I had brought it in more than 6 times for these precise issues while it was under warranty and it was never addressed/fixed.

I will share my other Jag issues shortly but I just had to dump more than $4500 into this car for leaks. This car has 43,000 miles on it and has been babied. It is outrageous!
It was XM that fixed my issues with the XM presets constantly being deleted. XM cheaped out over the years and made their programming so god awfully bad that I completely cancelled the subscriptions on both of my XF's. Problem solved.

Rique - what ended up fixing your issue? I'm having the same issue and bought the new 30 amp fuses, but I can't seem to get the old ones out and I'm not exactly sure which to replace (so I was going to replace all of them in the trunk).

He said XM fixed the issue by canceling the subscription!!!

I told by JLR that presets are stored in the XM module and not the brain of the unit. Hard to fathom when they gave allegedly replaced the module just recently and yep the same problem persists !!! Quite sure itís the main system but itís taken them 5 years and still no resolution!!

As fir the flicking white screenó not solved either. They kept telling me itís normal functioning. Itís only normal if you have interacted with the screen within a set period of time. It should not happen if you have not interacted with the steering wheel column buttons or any button on the info. unit. It never used to happen and does not happen on my family member same vehicle same model. It us is not an XM issue. My white screen happens in any mode.
