  2. Peter & Jim, Thank you both for your replies. I'll try your suggestions. Nice Jags, by the way! Roy
  3. Hello everyone, I'm new to the forum and I've recently purchased a 2013 3.0D XF sportbrake, 2 owners with 195,000 miles. I love it! It's the first premium car I've ever owned, having driven mondeos most of my days. I've replaced front dics and pads and replaced oil and all filters since buying it. It's drives faultlessly, having wanted for nothing by its first 2 owners. In the 1000 miles I've driven it, I've noticed what sounds an intermittent noisy pump, to the rear of the vehicle (air suspension?) No warnings displayed and faultless performance. Has anyone else experienced this noise? Good to meet you all!😊

  5. If all was ok prior to the change then the battery has to be suspect. Rarely are new batteries supplied fully charged so an overnight charge will give you a known starting point. 🙂
  6. Welcome to the club, Roy. If a battery is disconnected certain electrics need resetting. Windows, Volume, radio etc -- you need the radio code to get things going. The doors not working properly seems to me that it is not the battery but possibly a dose of WD40 might solve the problem. Try that first before getting your wallet out! Regards, Peter.
  7. Tried two other TPS units but car still does same thing code says TPS fault surely 3 units can’t be at fault fitted a new battery as well help
  8. Recently had a new battery installed. Now both rear door locks aren't working properly. Of course, when the guy at Halfords disconnected the old battery everything went dead - I wonder if tis may have affected the computer system and/or the electronic door mechanism? I discovered several days later that rear door locks are playing up. 1) The right rear always locks correctly but will only unlock intermittently and 2) the left rear door will not unlock at all. Both rear doors were working perfectly before the battery was replaced. I seem to recall many years ago when a previous battery was being replaced by the Jag garage, that the mechanic mentioned me that you must maintain power to the car electronics while the battery is being replace. Could this be true? Does anyone have any ideas on what may have caused this door lock problem on both rear doors at the same time? Any ideas on how to repair the problem or is it a complete replacement of each door locking mechanism? All help greatly appreciated.
  9. Could be the old problem of balancing the front wheels. In the old days it happened quite often as the tyres started to wear and required rebalancing. Dave
  10. I took the car into my local garage for a suspension and tyre check but they found nothing untoward. It would be easier to diagnose if the problem could be invoked but, try as I might, I cannot.
  11. Hi code p0646 relates to the air con compressor clutch, open or shorted, odds are the wiring has broken, bad connector or clutch winding burnt out, should be easy test with a multimeter most common problem with s-type is either the DCCV, dual coolant control valve, sit just behind radiator and or Climate control module, sit above glove box, usually dccv fails and either sticks open or shut, giving either permanent hot or cold heater, sometime they take out the climate module, these can be usually fixed, when you pull the apart you can see blown tracks that just need repairing cheers Joe https://jaguarclimatecontrol.com/diagnose/
  12. Faulty Air Conditioning Clutch Relay Air Conditioning Clutch Relay harness is open or shorted Air Conditioning Clutch Relay circuit poor electrical connection Worth checking the above first. Figure 06.1 of this electrical manual may help. http://www.jagrepair.com/images/AutoRepairPhotos/CarPDFFiles/SType/S-Type-Electrical-2006on.pdf
  13. Hi all, brand new member here, just bought an ‘06 4.2 S Type. Essentially it is a great motor but has a few little things that need sorting out. I thought it was worth the gamble! The seller plugged in a code reader and we got code P0646. I know this could be several things in the AC system, what should I check first? Is there a fuse or relay that controls this and are they located in the trunk fuse box or under the hood? TIA for your help Mike. IMG_5529.MOV
  14. Last week
  15. Thanks ill try that tomorrow. Hopefully it works.
  16. Hello all, My 2016 XJ Portfolio has an issue with displaying the nav map on the main instrument display despite Map being selected from the menu or display themes. Also, when in normal instrument display the turn info should be displayed in the info section (where info such as radio station is displayed) but when approaching a junction it just goes blank?? I have followed the instructions in all the hand books etc. Can anyone help?
  17. I live in Urmston Manchester, does anybody know a Technician/Mechanic who has the skills and set up to work on an XF 3.0 Supercharged Petrol? Could they back their service and skills with recommendations from Customers that use them at present? Thank You in advance Nigel.
  18. I agree with Joe one of your front tyre's could be a little oval one check you could do is jack the front up so the just off the ground and spin the wheel if it touches in one high spot that could be the problem ????
  19. Welcome to the Club, Nigel. I have always been a little curious about extended warranties. I retired in June 1999 after 29 years of company cars and after buying my company car [Toyota Avensis] and later used it in a part exchange for a Rover Sterling only 8 months old with the remainder of a 2 year warranty I noticed that the warranty would only remain valid if I had the Rover serviced my the main dealer from whom I bought it. The cost of a full service in 2001 was £325 +VAT. A week later I found a flyer on my car advertising a mobile mechanic trained by Rover and who had worked at the main dealer from whom I bought the car. The cost of a full service was £70. I am from Lancashire like you and I quote "In the spirit the made Lancashire what she is, I'd rather be drownded than done" I had my service done by the mobile mechanic and who for the last 19 years has serviced my cars. The AA does the breakdown service, but I have only used them twice because the cars have never failed me. I reckon I have saved about £8,000 over 19 years. My current car for the last 7 years is Jaguar 2 type. Any repairs that have needed correcting -- One sensor, 2 EGR valves and a water pump in the last 7 years have all been Jaguar parts much cheaper than would be charged by a main dealer, diagnostics charged by Jaguar are £164 -- my mechanic £20.! So, that is my position. I cannot advise you how you should go, but finding a good mechanic who loves cars is a good move. Regards, Peter.
  20. Good evening too Whoever might be the recipient, I purchased My XFS 3.0 petrol in October 2018. I’m extremely happy with Car and it’s Been a perfect Retirement present to Myself. The only issues I have is that extending Warranties, In Car Control System, Satellite Navigation system costs appear too be heavily in favour of Jaguar and not the Customer. I’ve paid £416 for a two year membership for In Car Control but have since found out if I don’t extend the Warranty for another year at a cost of £930 the Breakdown Recovery doesn’t work. As someone who doesn’t intend selling the car it’s My feeling that some of the expensive after sales products should have the option to incorporate other aspects for or at least have better breakdown options. I’m interested to see if members of the a Jaguar Owners club have access to privileges and maybe discount on such products. I would phone Jaguar Customer Services but due too the Pandemic they are not manned. Find that difficult to understand in a world where I can buy a pint, get My haircut and soon enter a gym or swimming pool. I await replies hopefully with good News. Nigel
  21. I have the same problem now with USB Map update 'Jaguar Gen2.1 HDD Europe 2018'. Did you find a solution to your problem? I already went to Jaguar but they couldn't help me. They said the navigation unit was broken, proposed to replace it for €3000.
  22. Open the bonnet and remove the cowl around the windscreen. Check and clean both drains and remove all debris.
  23. My 2004 jaguar S type drivers floor gets soaked when it rains. I assumed that it was coming from the windshield seal, so I sealed it with silicone. But its still leaking. I noticed that its leaking down from the plastic cover on the front footwell. ive tried to look to see where its coming from exactly because its to much obstacles in the way. Can anyone help me with this problem please
