    S type wows

    Hello I am new to Jag ownership. I currently have a 2006 S type 3 litre petrol. I did some research before the purchase drove a few, then bought one. I've had the usual problems. 1. Code PO420 cat efficiency below threshold and PO303 and PO304 misfire 3 and 4 2. Misfire on both sides, so replaced plugs and coils, removed valve covers (as oil in plug holes) replaced with seals, turned of management light. Hoping this would also cure the cat issue. The car has been running fine since but not for long. 3. As now the car has developed a loud induction noise when it is throttled hard, loss of power and the gear box cant decide it it wants to change down management light came on again code PO420 bank 1. So removed all air intake parts including manifold and put it back together checking for cracks or holes turned off light. But this problem has not gone away. Any ideas? (Blocked cat?) (Fuelling or timing?) Or is it so simple that I'm missing it? Thanks in advance for your help regards Dave

    Urgent Help Needed

    Hi Guys, I have 61 Plate XFs 3.0L V6. All has been okay until today when I had the message "Battery Not Charging" message, Shortly after (2 Mins) all the faults popped up (ABS, ESP ect) the wipers turned on and the car went sluggish, the screen turned off along with the audio. Following this the instrument panel turned off aswell as the revs and speedo. At this point the engine is still running and Im held up at a red light. once I tried to set off i moved a meter and the engine just cut out. I managed to get it to a car to a Car park. We tried to get jump leads to get it going a the car was dead dead!! no power at all. with the jump leads the car turned twice and died again. but this resulted in the jump leads burning and melting (they were heavy duty. I have replaced the battery and everything has come to life but once the new battery is connected there was some smoke coming from next to the fuse box in the engine compartment so I rushed to disconnect it!. Does anyone have any Idea what the problem could be?? Thanks in advanced

    Front proximity sensor.

    Could be wrong but do S-types have factory fitted front sensors? Maybe they are after market additions.

    wheel sensors

    Hi, Anyone come across this problem please, first of all let me apologize for the longevity of this post but I'll try to be as brief as possible. First of all I got an intermittent fault warning on my 2003 2.5 petrol S-type saying "ABS/DSC. fault" closer inspection with an OBD reader disclosed that the left hand rear wheel sensor/wiring was at fault (C 1175). I duly replaced the wheel sensor, cleared the fault and thought that was that, after only a few miles/days the fault re-occurred. I then stupidly without testing the old sensor repeated the above thinking I must have got a dodgy sensor. Again the fault cleared, but shortly after returned. Now being a retired engineer I took a deep breath sat down and then the logic kicked in. I tested the old sensor which was found to be OK, ah! must be a wiring fault. I set to task and traced the wiring step by step from the rear sensor connector right through to the ABS unit. I had continuity from connector to connector but none at the ABS unit, so I thought it must be a broken wire from the last connector to the ABS unit. I painstakingly traced along the pair of wires (they run from the passenger foot well down the inside of the wing across the front behind the front valance, which all need removing for access), all the way back to the ABS unit and it was there that the problem showed its self. the wires from left sensor were connected to the opposite sides pins and visa versa. Now this is a factory wired connector with some 47 pins in it that can't be removed.I checked and replaced the RIGHT hand wheel sensor and the fault was cleared for good. Now this is where the real problem arises, in skid situation the ECU/ABS/DSC unit will read a stationary/locked wheel and will apply and/or release the brake on the wrong wheel which could have dire consequences! Any input anyone. There could be hundreds if not thousands of cars out there with this problem. P.S. I've attached the wiring diagram for clarity. Perplexed Nobby. s-type wiring.pdf

    DPF - how bad does it get

    Dom, do you have a link or website for M&K? The only Jaguar specialists in Milton Keynes (where I am) I can find are E&E http://www.eandeservices.biz/. I presume you don't mean them. Thanks, John

    DPF - how bad does it get

    Hi Tim, A very useful piece of information, and well worth printing off and putting in your "useful" file. You did mention that your driving habits must change, something which was brought to my notice from SWMBO. Have a look at a website -- Ashford Lightfoot. I will PM you about the Widget they have invented which does work. Regards, Peter

    DPF - how bad does it get

    ** UPDATE ** So I took the car in on Tuesday as planned for the DPF clean - it seemed like a shot in the dark but hopefully a worthwhile one. My DPF was removed and given to a specialist cleaning company (who collected DPF from my mechanic Tuesday and returned on Thursday) I was told that the DPF was showing at 50% full on removal from the car. The specialist recorded a flowrate on his specialist cleaning equipment of 243 m3/hr pre-clean. Following the clean (on a machine apparently costing about £40k) the new flowrate was 428 m3/hr. The DPF was deemed upon return to be completely clean (showing nothing in the official jaguar software) so the specialist has told the car (via the jaguar software) that it has a new DPF. Before the work this week performance of the car was very poor, the red DPF warning (remember I had recieved no yellow warning first) had essentially put the car into a limp mode with no power to speak of. Prior to this work I had noticed there was a noticeable lag between when the right foot was pressed and the (always lovely) power delivery to the rear wheels - this was not the case when I got the car a couple of years ago when it was always a responsive throttle. Following the work this week I collected the car today and engine performance can now be described as 'very lively' and the lag which I had noticed before is no longer evident power delivery is once again immediate. My driving habits need to change for sure - but I am still somewhat bitter and twisted that there is absolutely no information on DPF status within the infotainment system and thus no way of knowing the state of the DPF level or when a clean is in progress even though this info is clearly known by the engine management software - seems a massive oversight on Jaguar's part but they are not alone in this. I will have to keep you posted on DPF developments but for the moment all looking good for me right now. I was only expecting get a degree of cleaning to get me through the MOT and I expected to have to replace the DPF sometime within the next year or so however given that its deemed now to be currently as good as new I now hope to get a bit more life than this. Also Worthy of note is the fact that this off vehicle DPF clean can be repeated 'several times' on the same DPF - the cleaning company will advise when it can no longer be cleaned. I don't know the company used by the specialist he is keeping this to himself but the charge for the clean on the invoice was £350 however there were 2 hours of labour for the exhaust removal and re-installation process some new exhaust gaskets and the computer stuff so the clean was for me just under £500+Vat all up = a lot but a lot less than the £1'800+vat initially quoted for a new DPF. This process should work for DPF on any model / age jaguar or indeed any other make with DPF issues and the clean is not vehicle specific its an industrial blast . I will add that I have only been using shell and bp's expensive fuels this past year or so following advice on here. I hope this info is useful to anyone else with DPF problems and i will definitely update this thread with any developments on the DPF front! Cheers Tim

    s-type electrical problem

    Hi Mark, I have just run a check on my s type and it comes back with 14.5v to a high of 14.9v. The battery is fully charged as I have not been using my car for the last 10 days due to a "Restricted Performance" message which is being dealt with on Tuesday with 2 new EGR valves. Regards, Peter.

    s-type electrical problem

    What would you consider to be 'low voltage'? My battery comes back with 11.4v, and I've had the odd lurch, 'gearbox fault' and engine MIL (all whilst moving), which clear themselves after an immediate restart. My 'short' runs are 2 x 13 miles, three times a week, and all in London..

    Selling my S-type, low mileage, great spec

    I would never stick a "false" badge on a car -- but I would never say "only" about an S Type 2.7D.

    Hazard light problem

    Hi, Has anyone came up with possible causes for the hazard switch not to operate the 4 flashers? My 60 plate Jag has developed the same fault ... Indicators work OK when left or right selected. Both operate when alarm is selected ... so all bulbs are fine and I assume fuses are too. I have not tried to change the panel switch yet as I though the problem may be related to the fuse box in some way ... Does anyone have a breakdown of the rear fuse box and which relays or wires are linked the hazard operation? Need this fixed soon as MOT is not far off ..... Rather attempt to fix it myself than send to workshop ... last bill was £880 for Alternator that blew and took out my battery as well. cheers Jim
