Top 20 2004 Jaguar S Type Questions & Answers


I have stopped those annoying squeaks by hosing down every rubber bushing I could find using silicone spray.
Way cheaper than having the bushings replaced, unless the bushings are chunked out and dry, then maybe they need replacing.

when you replaced the pads did you make sure that the sliders were free if they are partially siezed it gives the the signal to the parkbrake module that the movement is excesive , but also at your model/year there was a prob with the parkbrake motor going bad or the wiring to it chaffed on the rear subframe try to get the fault codes out of the parkbrake module using a obd2 code reader that may have the clue to recalibrate the parkbrake disconnect the battery for 10 mins reconnect apply footbrake with ign. on and work parkbrake on/off 3or4 times

Check for loose or worn suspension components. My XJ8 became unstable when a rear tie rod became worn. To check jack up rear wheels. If you can rock either of them left and right that might be your problem.

i presume you mean the electronic parking brake does not meet the minimum effort for mot test, first check the rear calipers and pads, the caliper sliders seize and/or the pads seize in the caliper frame, check the discs also for bad corrosion, is the park brake warning showing on the dash? if so check the wiring above the rear subframe its prone to chaffing and grounding out, the park brake motors are also troublesome, sounds like a pad/ caliper problem more than likely seized sliders easy job to free off, hope this is helpfull to you.

if you have a fault code relating to camshaft position sensors logged if i remember correctly it needs the powertrain control module reprogramming to rectify the problem, or high resistance spark plugs can log this fault code for some strange reason, i presume it is a 3.0 ltr v6, the cam sensors are very reliable normally. the wiring to them is not, on the v6 there are 2 sensors one on the rear of each cylinder head, on the v8 there is one on the front of each cam cover, hope this helps.

you will have to run a diagnostic check on it, if you can get it to a auto parts store, like auto-zone they will scan it for free.

Is the carpet getting wet? Get a torch and look around the back of the engine, especially where the heater hoses go through the firewall. The condensation on the windscreen suggests there is a leak in the hose - could be either side of the firewall. .

if its the correct key for your car and its not working try a spare if you have one. check the condition of the teeth on the key it maybe worn out or bent. it could also be the key tumbler that is worn and needs replacing. does your key chain weigh a lot that is more than the weight of say just 4 keys if so this may have caused the tumblers to were out.

First thing to do is get the battery checked and replaced if necessary. If the problem continues, it will be necessary to have a pro-shop check the fault codes (go to a Jag specialst, not a dealer)

A high rev generally means you have an intake leak some where try to listen for a hissing sound to locate your leak. If you cant find it I usually try spraying brake cleaner in and around the top of the engine till I hear a difference in the engine while its running.
