Question about 2005 Jaguar XJ-Series

1 Answer

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

Hi there; I've just started getting a "parking break fault" on my 2005 Jaguar XJ6. The warning light/notice comes up on the dashboard display whilst I am driving along and I have to pull over, put the gear in park and then apply & release the parking break to remove the warning. I pull away and then the fault warning usually comes on again a few minutes later. Any ideas or is this another expensive Jaguar Dealer only job?? Many thanks Mike Stewart

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.

the first thing you should do is check the fuses, if it is ok, maybe the sensors need replaced.

After driving my car 2006 chevy impala for about 20 miles the dashboard warning light oil pressure low stop engine and the oil warning light appears, but if step on break or slow down it goes out..wha


Verify that the engine has the proper amount of oil. The inertia from accelerating may be moving the oil in the oil pan away from the sensor and causing it to send a signal, then when you slow the oil levels out and the sensor go's off. I've had this happen alot with a taurus that I owned. The simple solution was to top off the oil to the correct level and the sensor did not come on again (until it ran low again, had a leaky oil plug on oil pan).

"Fault, Parkingbreak", yellow engine light. How


You need to sort out the yellow light which could be either fluid level or wear on the brake blocks or pads. The parking brake should operate on a cable that can be adjusted to release, or you need to release the brake fluid by turning the bleeding nipple.

My 2005 Jag S-Type 6 cylinder check engine light came on and while in parked position the check engine light started to blink yellow and stated "Restricted Performance" what does that mean?


You have a fault condition in the the engine management system - get the codes read to indicate where the fault lies ... It is probably just a faulty sensor as this is the most common cause of check engine warnings. The restricted performance condition is meant to protect the engine or components from damage, so don't panic - get the codes read - its probably not as bad as you expect. hope this helps - good luck.

Hi, I have an 1995 Jaguar XJ6 3.2 litre. The antilock warning has been illuminating occasionally in the past,more frequently now. Brake fluid levels appear OK. What fix would be required. Thanks in...


I would have to plug a diagnostic computer into the car and interrogate the ABS controller for diagnostic trouble codes to find out what part of the system is causing the problem being detected and triggering your light to illuminate.

Dashboard Instrument cluster does not work.


there are 2 large terminal plugs with the wiring for all the instruments that are plugged into the back of that panel. make sure they are snug and in place. You reach in and under but it may easier to "simply" remove the cluster. 4 screws hold it in place accessible form underneath and with a long phillips screwdriver and lighting.
