Can anyone help or had this issue (2002 xk8 convertible)

Ive just noticed the tiny l.e.ds for seat heater swicthes , front and rear fog lamps and traction control on/off have all stopped working?

(It just on that particular row of dash - all the other small lights still work on climate control etc)

All the buttons still work though- heated seats work - you just dont get the lamp to tell you there on!

The same for traction control - press switch and put foot down hard = wheelspin! so its just the lights;

are they replaceable? and why did the whole lot fail at once

any help welcome! & thanks in advance

Hi

To change the bulbs you will need to take the centre console out and remove that particular switch pack. The replacement bulbs (not LEDs) come from Jaguar and are about £2 each.

Any problems give Kevin a call on 01264 333523

If they've all gone out I'd have thought it's more likely to be a dodgy connection than bulb failures. The lights on my front and rear screen heaters periodically go out, but they eventually come back on.

Thanks Kevin & All. I was told by a dealer the whole switch assembly had to be replaced. I try and remove that row and check connections and bulbs.

I Went down a massive pot hole the other day and it sent a shock-wave through the car - the abs warning lights came on afterwards (then cancelled on next start up)
maybe the vibration jarred the connections!
