Question about 2005 Jaguar XJ-Series
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.
