Asked by PaulWall0039 Apr 18, 2018 at 05:32 AM about the 2009 Jaguar XF

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

First off i was in the trunk with a pair of pliers and i
accidentally touched a wire with the pliers and
something shorted out. Now my car wont start and
the headlights wont shutoff. My question is how
can i fix my car so it will start and the head lights
will shutoff?

1 Answer


you probably grounded something out and blew a fuse , could be a mega fuse under the hood , headlights staying on could be a default of some kind
