Do you mean 'parking brake fault' This message can sometimes appear with low battery causing the electronic park brake to lose its calibration.
To recalibrate it disconnect your battery and leave for 10 Min's. then reconnect and with the ignition on apply the foot brake and whilst keeping applied switch the parking brake on. then release the foot brake turn ignition off - on and the handbrake fault message should be gone and the parking brake should release as you drive off.
IMPORTANT - make sure you have you radio code as you will need this after a battery disconnect.

hope this helps - good luck

    Hi Pedestrian.

    I understand your frustration with Jaguar dealers! They are great with coffee and newspapers in the customer area but for customer service they are amongst the worst! Perhaps this will change with The Indian owners philosophy?

    Contact Jaguar head office and put your complaint strongly-it does help whilst in guarantee.

    I ended up taking my dealer to small claims court,( they settled as soon as they received the papers) They thought that I would go away if they just kept ignoring me. So keep on at them and do everything by email so you have a full written record!

    GOOD LUCK.!

Identical problems in the recent snow. Drove until first stop and then park brake locked on and Selector stuck in P. Jaguar Assist called and passed to AA. Selector sorted by lifting and moving lock located to left of gear stick. Brake still locked on. Battery removal no go. Removed the two plugs from Park Brake module (right hand side boot level with fuel filler. Applied 12v from battery across thick green and white and red and white wires. Reverse polarity until motor heard winding off brake. The drive to dealer (no application of brake or shift in P) and pay him £100 to reset the software. Apparently it goes into a loop if wheels spin on ice with EPC engaged. Avoid by turning EPC off in extreme conditions.

My S type parkbrake motor is starting to make funny noises and the "Parkbrake Fault" message appears. I need a new motor about £90 cost + labour. This can't be done for another two weeks so to stop it failing and leaving my brakes on you can do the following to ensure it does not come on when leaving the car.
Put the automatic gearbox in "parking" and push the parkbrake button down (i.e. to ensure it does not come on). Keep it pushed down and take the ingnition keys out of the it will not start the parkbrake motor. Whe you next get in the car, you will not see the "Park" light come on meaning the parkbrake is not on.
Only do this if the car is on the flat to be safe.

Fellow sufferer,
Copy of e-mail to Taunton Jaguar
"The vehicle was imobolised by a computer failure on 18th January 2010. On reporting my problem to your company, as the car was supplied by you and having done under 10,000 miles is under warranty, I was refered to the AA. An engineer promptly appeared and carried out, what proved to be a tempory repair, and I was able to attend a meeting three hours late. On 28th January 2010 I lost another afternoon whilst you arranged for the car to be returned to your garage. A day and a half has passed and I have received no phone call or any contact as to whether you have got the vehicle, if it can be repaired, and how long will I be without the car?"

My 2006 S Type dispalyed the message 'Parking brake fault' after sliping on an icy surface and using the anti slip button. The AA disconnected the battery without sucess - but not for 10 minutes. Perhaps that would have solved it.
The car had to be recovered to a dealer - its too clever for its own good!

    Although it does not seem to make sense - always turn off the DSC when in bad snow and ice - as the constant use can cause problems with the system and it may lock-out

SOURCE: parking brake will not disengage on 2005 jaguar s type

hi mike i had the very same problem with my 55 plate s type this morning 4 feb 2009 had driven a journey of 20+ miles at 9am with 4" of snow on the ground and at this point no problems and i would assume the discs and pads would have been toastie hot and the assoc parts ,
but after a quick stop for ten minutes i restarted the car and drove away up a slight incline in snow /slush the rear wheels lost traction and the dsc sybol illuminated on the dash after getting no traction in this mode switched dsc off and managed to get some traction by hook or crook on reaching the major grit treated road and gaining full trction the dsc was re selected
as per normal start up but then i noticed that i had the amber oval warning light on the dash and park brake fault promt on the info lcd .
On stopping the car i tried to switch off the engine and re start to see if this would reset or clear the display
resulting in the car still showing same fault msg and this time unable to select a gear and the gear selector stuck in park

on calling jaguar assist an engineer arrived within a reasonable time with laptop and conections to do a diognostic scan
finding that his pc would not cummnicate with my car following several attemps the engineer went on to get the park brake disengaged by these next two steps and i can only say that this worked sufficently to get the vehicle off the road to a more suitable investigating area
in my case my drive way less than 1/4 mile away

step 1. inside the boot lift the floor to expose spare wheel and battery compartment
then on drivers side, the interior that covers the rear light cluster should be teesed back there are two black fixings that secure this in place one being 1/4 turn the other a full thread plastic nut
once this liner is pulled back (easier with two people )there is a white (PARK BRAKE ) module sat there with a multi plug going in .
this multiplug contains severa wires going into it.
from what the engineer said the two your intrested are clearly fatter than the rest and control the motors that engage parking brake force to the calipers .
now heres the clever bit take 2 peices of wire at least 2 feet long making sure the ignition is off and key out
(this is also where a friend comes in handy )
where the battery is, remove the cover from atop of the live + terminal and place place /hold /secure one wire to each batery terminal this done then carefully touch the exposed other ends of each wire into the little gaps where the individual fat wires go into the multiplug trial and error will do one of two things
1/ nothing and the brake motors will just remain powered to keep brake force applied so by swapping them round should give the desired result in powering the motors to RELEASE breaking force and thus disengage

REAL IMPORTANT NOTE MAKE SURE THE VEHICLE CAN NOT ROLL ,OVER YOU ,OR AWAY ,CHOCK A WHEEL OR TWO WITH SOME THING BLOCK OF WOOD BRICK MOTHER IN LAW YA GET MY DRIFT

so stage one complete but error msg and drive selector still not moving

step 2.
go to
center console where ashtray is ,lift cover to expose cigar lighter
the trim panel that is sheild shaped and surrounds the gear selector should be grasped firmly by placing your four fingertips along the flat top area where it meets the ashtray and prise upwards toward the roof this removes the trim plate without any damage and exposes the Jgate selector linkage and the plastic dust shroud that rotates when various positions are selected .
now on the pasenger side look into the gap that has become visable and a small aprox 1/2" to 3/4 " protrusion with a flat straight lump similar to a slotted screw but in reverse if you get my drift sits on the side of the selector by rotating this button/protrusion with your finger tip or screw driver tip and trying to move the gear selector from its park position this should allow the selector to move down the gate,while the engineer did this in my case i was sat in the drivers seat and had the car held on the foot brake so that the normal protocols of selecting were observed also the engine was running on moving the selector neutral was selected and at no time was park re selected til the vehicle was recovered to my drive way
however whilst driving the car the parkbrake fault warnings were still present and the asssoc beeps were audible .

strangly once we were on my drive the car was re plugged in to diagnostic laptop after the engineer had tried it on the land rover disco he had attended in and this done just to elliminate that his laptop and cables were funcioning correctly which they were ,
my car began to communicate with his machine and a reset was done
the get you out the S**T CHEATS were put back to normal
the PARK BRAKE FAULT warning was cleared and so far so good

its been very intresting to note that all the posts i have read on the web seem to refer to 2005 models and that adverse wheather conditions seem to play there part i was relieved to have this fixed and very grateful to the engineer who was so very helpful and happy to share his wealth of knowledge without which i could not have passed this on

SOURCE: PARKING BRAKE FAULT IN S TYPE 2005 JAGUAR. WHAT

If the brake will not release or not apply, try the following (making sure you have a fully charged battery) Disconnect battery for 10 mins ( make sure you have your radio code available- this will need to be entered after battery reconnected to use you radio) when battery reconnected follow instructions on your dash board message centre. If this fixes your problem the the fault was caused by low battery voltage. If the fault remains you have a problem with the brake module or motor. If the brake shows no fault messages but you still have a problem it could be a mechanical problem with the brake assembly which will need inspection. Hope this was of help - good luck.

2004 ele parking brake not pulling up to m.o.t s type jaguar


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.

Hi there; I've just started getting a "parking


The most basic check for this is - is your battery up to 100% efficiency. the handbrake module is notorious for faults with low voltage or voltage dips. Next is to check that the brake pads and cables are free and in good condition (pads not worn too far down) as these can cause fault indications. The fact that the park-brake still works and does not jam on or off would indicate that the major components are still working and may just need some attention and recalibrating. T o try a recalibration of the park brake - disconnect your battery for 10 Min's (make sure you have your radio code as this will be needed on reconnect) when battery reconnected follow the instructions on your driver display panel and see if this improves your problem. hope this helps - good luck.

How do you set up electric hand brake after fitting rear pads?(appears to be binding on).on s type jaguar.


Bulletin from Jaguar :

Electronic Park Brake (EPB)
Re-Calibration Procedure
2003 MY-ON
S-TYPE
M44998-ON

Issue:
On some 2003 MY-on S-TYPE vehicles, a customer may report a concern of premature
parking brake pad wear or the brakes binding. This condition can result if the electronic
park brake (EPB) system is not re-calibrated after the removal of the rear brake callipers
to replace the brake pads.
Action:
Should a customer express concern regarding the above, refer to the calibration
procedure detailed in this bulletin.

1. Reset the EB module:
a. Switch off the ignition.
b. Disconnect the battery for 30 seconds. For additional information, refer to STYPE
Workshop Manual Section 414-01.
c. Reconnect the battery.
2. Start the engine.
3. Firmly apply and release the foot brake five times.
4. Confirm that the message NOT CALIBRATED" or APPLY FOOT AND PARK
BRAKE" is displayed on the instrument cluster message center. This indicates that
the parking brake is in calibration mode.
5. Lightly press the foot brake pedal.
6. Apply the parking brake by using the EB switch.
7. Release the parking brake.
8. Release the foot brake.
9. Confirm that the brake warning lamp is no longer illuminated on the instrument
pack and that the NOT CALIBRATED" message is no longer displayed in the
message center.
10. Apply and release the EPB five times to ensure no error is present.
_____________________________________________________________________________

NB: It is also possible the actuator is bad though.

Parking Brake Fault light is coming on? I reset the battery and it keeps coming on. It starts with the "apply parking brake" light and then when you take off, it goes to a parking brake fault? Please...


This is a common fault often caused by low battery voltage, before you start taking expensive actions with the park brake modules etc get your battery checked for 100% efficiency.
Hope this helps, good luck.

Why doesn't the eletronic parking brake work?


Try a reset of the park brake.
Make sure you have your radio code.!!
Disconnect the battery - leave for 10 Min's.
Reconnect.
Turn ignition on. If fault has not reset - try the following
Apply foot brake (not too hard)
Apply park-brake switch following instructions on the message center.

Use this method for any park brake fault as most of the time it fixes the minor problems caused by glitches and low battery voltage.
hope this helps good luck

Electric parking brake shows warning when operated


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
