My 2008 XJ8 is having this issue. It just started happening when in moved to Michigan. If it's extremely cold, the suspension fault light comes on. And my car rides stiff like a Snoop Dog car. Otherwise, when it's warmer outside, I have no problem.

When you move in a car Jaguar xj8 1998 car stop motion is not the engine stops but the car stops when you put the drive moving but feel that the car is very heavy and after walking a simple distance change the car and become a chain We have checked all the wheels and what includes disc, Correctly what the problem is

Denote, In the right side of the trunk is a fuse box. Open the box and you will see what looks to be 2 or 3 large black fuses. One of those regulates the front suspension. Have your repair shop check those out. I had the same problem and one of those was faulty. Good luck.

Hey Guys, My car has the front end fully down and I can hear the compressor working but won't go up. Tried to look for holes on the bags but couldn't see any. Any ideas?
