I have a 2003 X-type Jaguar. The car is not running right. I get a message that says "engine system fault" and "gearbox fault". I noticed that when I plug my GPS adapter into the cigarette lighter, I have this problem. I sell real estate. Since the market has been slow, I haven't had as many showings. So, I have been able to notice that after using the GPS, this some times happens. Do you have any idea what could be the problem? Thanks. Optional Information: Year: 2003 Make: Jaguar Model: X-Type


By plugging the GPS into the cigar lighter socket only takes power from the vehicle electronic circuit and is not connected to the vehicle engine management system, so i dont see how it can be connected. iSeeing as it is putting on the warning displ ... 2003 Jaguar X-Type

Oil change I changed the oil for the first time in my 2008 Honda Pilot when the indicator read 40%. The mechanic could not re-set it to 100% because my car came without an Owner's Manual. The indicator has now gone down to 10%. Could it be a result of my using SW5 40 instead of the SW5 20 recommended by the manufacturers? My mechanic advised on the oil type since I now live in the tropics. I have this fear that the engine may shut out on me. How do I re-set this? Please advise William
