Friend with a Jaguar gets a message on the dash, Cruise Control Not
Wife checks Jaguar forums. Finds suggestion to tape up a crack in the
air intake pipe.
No crack, but lid for window washer fluid not on perfectly. Replaced
Message disappears and cruise works well.
Good old Lucas
I owned a TR-3 for 30 years and under the hood there were two fuses.
One day I was careless in replacing a fuse and stuck a replacement in
the empty space between the fuse holders...it fit there just fine.
Caused no harm but starting the car required no key.
The back of the ignition switch was easily accessible and even a rank
amateur car thief could easily have hot wired the TR-3.
That said, they would be pretty hard to steal because getting one
started at all was not a sure thing...especially if the temp. got the
least bit on the cool side.
They deserve it... I went through my British sports car phase as did
most of my friends. They were marginally better than Italian sports cars
but that's another story.
I found some of the performance specs for the '60s generation of sports
cars on line. Sadly, my Yaris would smoke most of them, handles a lot
better, starts in the morning, and has a working heater.
My friend has only had his Jag for 3 months but he loves it. Even his
wife says it will be hard for her to drive her car. He lived in NYC
until 9 months ago, had a Cadillac for a while, and then rented cars.
Now he's in Georgia.
Ford did a lot to get them on the right path and Tata dumped a lot of
money into them and sales have increased. the style of the sedans is
bland, but the F-type series has some potential. In any case, way
overpriced for what you get.
