What is this wire???

Post by M4RK5JAG » Fri Nov 08, 2019 12:53 am


Can anyone tell me what this wire and socket is for (right next to my finger) in the picture attached? It looks as though a wire has been unplugged and cable tied to another cable. It is right next to the oil dip stick on my Jaguar XE 2016. Any help will be greatly appreciated?

Many thanks,

I can't say for definite but has anyone been messing with the EGR system? Several nuts look as if they have been refitted. Have a look at this about the Ingenium engine and see if anything makes sense.
