Jaguar X Type Turbo Actuator FaultJaguar X-Type Electronic Turbo Actuator
An Electronic Turbo Actuator is an additional component that has been implemented to Turbochargers, and it is currently the most accurate type of Turbocharger boost control as it can be controlled by the engines ECU. Because of this, adjustments can be made to improve turbo spool up times as well as increase efficiency resulting in more power and better fuel economy. However the downsides of introducing another electronically controlled component to a highly sophisticated system means that there is still aways a chance that the Electronic Turbo Actuator will fail.

Jaguar X Type Turbo Actuator ProblemsJaguar X-Type Electronic Turbo Actuator – Common Faults
Some of the most common issues that we have found with the Jaguar X-Type Electronic Turbo Actuator is the glow plug light starts flashing, and the engine may go into limp mode. Some of the typical fault codes shown on diagnostic equipment that may indicate a faulty Turbo Actuator include:


These can also appear when the Turbo is faulty, however a further inspection is always encouraged to rule out any problems with the Turbo Actuator. Unfortunately, many vehicle manufacturers have a “No Repair Policy” which means that even if you have a faulty Turbo Actuator, they would charge to replace the complete Turbocharger as the turbo actuator will not be available itself. As you can imagine, this can prove to be very expensive, and can cost easily upwards of £1000.00 + VAT.

  • Hi, I have a 2009 Jaguar X-Type 2.2 DPF with what I think is an actuator issue. Runs great when cold but will go into limp mode with “Gearbox fault” message and flashing glowplug light. once hot.

    Will repairing the turbo actuator fix the issue? Thanks.

    • Hi Kai

      Thanks for the enquiry,

      There are a number of reasons you can be experiencing this type of fault and it will need to be thoroughly investigated to determine the root cause. We test all units before remanufacturing, so if the turbo actuator is at fault, we can confirm this and then proceed to remanufacture the unit. All repaired units are returned with a lifetime warranty as well for complete peace of mind.
