Re: Different temperature air conditioning

All sorted!! All o rings replaced around whole system. Holds it pressure now so full recharge complete!

I live in east Kent and only one garage does the new gas around here that isn’t over £100.

Re: Different temperature air conditioning

Bit of an update:

Changed the condenser and o rings where it connects. Today had it pressure checked and now suspected leak is near compressor at the o rings. Another one to change!

Re: Different temperature air conditioning

Just to update the story... condenser replaced today. There was a huge leak at the bottom connecting pipe near the o ring, now replaced I just need to find someone to put some gas in! Easier said than done mind you!

Re: Different temperature air conditioning

Had mine in at a local today but sadly they have the old gas pressure testing system and couldn’t find any issues with it, I don’t think they fully checked it over but lucky they didn’t charge a penny. I guess it’s either put it into jaguar dealership and get it diagnosed or gamble on the condenser ...

Re: Different temperature air conditioning

I was hopeful it wouldn’t be the condenser as even before I purchased the car I knew it was a common issue! Unfortunately not covered by warranty so looks like it’s going to have to be a local garage job, lucky I have a mate in the trade! I’m guessing today’s hot temp just shows it up more so than b...

Different temperature air conditioning

Today being massively hot I’ve now noticed a strange one in my XE! Fully auto with air conditioning on it appears that one side of my car has air conditioning and the other doesn’t. The side that doesn’t is the driver side! Both sides of dual climate control is set at 20 degrees but yet the passenge...

Re: Stop/Start again a few thoughts

Mine is still working fine since they reset the monitoring system but I still get a S/S cut out for 7 seconds and then it restarts the engine but I think that’s down to climate if anything just seems very sensitive! I’m pretty sure the only concrete fix is a new battery with better CCA

Re: Stop/Start again a few thoughts

Since Jaguar dealership on Wednesday it’s been working fine. Had one day where I had nothing but only stopped once and perhaps wasn’t ready except that all good. Voltage sticking at 12.3 now which is interesting. I’m not holding my breathe as if it goes off again I’m just changing the battery and ho...

Re: Stop/Start again a few thoughts

Back from local dealer and some interesting points! No fault codes found when plugged in but that’s no shock. They found the ‘cold cranking amps’ were low and needed to reset the battery monitoring system. All running okay now but will see how long it lasts! Did enquire if a larger amp battery would...
