Howdy folks,

I recently purchased this car: https://bringatrailer.com/listing/1995-jaguar-vanden-plas/#listing-bid

I have no previous experience with Jags, but always loved the XJ. Overall it's a very nice car, but needs a couple things:

roof clearcoat is toasted. I'll get this taken care of in a week or so
cruise control is non functional
radio is non functional
trunk idiot light is illuminated even when the trunk is closed, and the trunk release solenoid does not open the trunk.
Rear view mirror is cracked and the dimmer adjustment doesn't work
Some of the clock LCD segments are dead
I intend to make this my daily driver and would like everything to work if possible

I will be posting to get advise and moral support! Love the car so far!

Cheers,

Erik

Hi Erik,
.
Welcome to Jaguar ownership, the website and forum.
I have owned my 04 X350 since last November and it's brilliant.

Everyone here is friendly and helpful and some of the usernames here ( like TeapotTony and PigletJohn ) make me smile.

Hi Erik. Welcome to the fold. The Trunk solenoid and lamp maybe a problem with broken wires in the loom at the Trunk hinge (common fault). If you post your probs on the X300/X308 section of the forum Im sure you will get a lot of help there. :)
