Check your brake fluid level first. If it is fine then you probably have a bad abs brake sensor.

SOURCE: No heat, cooling fan seems

Bad thermostat, the cooling fan relay is doing its job perfectly: it's turning the fans on at the engne control module's request, since your engine is running too hot.

Same thing happen on one 2004 X-Type. They found out that it is the antfreeze, not have enough antifreeze, because it was leaking from the pipes that lead to the radiator. The clamps on the car are not very strong, and can loosen. Check for those pipes. I bought some nice clamps that have a screw on it so you can screw it as tight as you need.

Basicly check the coolant level before you replace any thermostats or sensors, if the level is okay I'll go with a thermostat.

Keep us updated.

SOURCE: 2003 Jag S-type-Blinking dash lights

The long story short it probably your battery being dead or a computer glitch (if there is nothing else apparently wrong with the car)
One is the battery life of an older model jaguar is going to be short compared to newer models. I noticed I have problems with my battery going dead around the 6 th year of the cars life since then a bunch of silly issues. One thing to know is if your car doesn't start it (even if your lights work) is that your battery is to low for the ignition to work (which requires high voltage). You can try removing the batter than re attaching it back to the car.
I have these issues typically when i don't drive for long periods of time in the winter (mostly). The car contains a big gigantic computer (which a lot of owners do nt realize) controlling everything weather you can start the car or not (it has a security system still armed) so when the computer is not working properly or the battery is too low (and their are no other apparent reasons). I would suggest trying a few suggestions on the jaguar forum because its very specific but you would be surprised how stupid the issues end up being. Flat bed a jagaur to any dealership and your already in the hole for 150 plus.
good luck

Hi Richard, I'm not an expert on Jags, just a little jealous I don't have one. Looks like a very nice vehicle. Have a close look, inspecting all hoses and vacuum pipes on the intake manifold side of the engine for any damage or loose fitting. The problem seems to be a leakage of air which is raising the idle speed. Regards John

How to know timing is off on a 2000 jag s-type


Timing can be tricky on any vehicle. Most times they all show the same characteristics. It's been my experience that when timing is off one of two things will take place. Either the vehicle will turn over and over and over (meaning the engine) but won't start or if it does start in will run really rough instead of smoothly. If your Jag s-type is running roughly it doesn't necessarily mean the timing is off. could be bad spark plugs, wires, coil packs, or could even be a fuel related problem. I would go with the cheapest solution first and if that doesn't fix it I would work my way through the other mentioned issues working toward the more expensive as a last resort.

Jags are HARD to work on, and even HARDER to buy parts for ... so ... have you ever heard of K-Seal? If it WORKS, it could save you $1,000's! If it doesn't work, you're out less than $20!
