Loving my new S-Type but a question about phones...

Recommended Posts

Firstly, I love my new S-Type!


I have been cruising around in a year 2000 S-Type with no toys for a few years which sadly died a tragic death when the throttle body blew out whilst doing 70mph on the motorway :( SO i did what any self respecting S-Type lover would do - i went and bought another one!


I am now the proud owner of a 2004 S-Type in Racing Green and this one does have the toys! Sat Nav, Jag Voice, all the fun stuff. But the question of the phone module is giving me a head ache.


Basically, when I hit the phone button it says the system does not have a phone fitted. Inside the armrest however is a phone all hooked up, it won't power on however. Now I have read that the phone not fitted message can mean there is either no phone or that the phone module is bad. The fact that I have the phone in the armrest - is it likely i have a phone module that has gone bad?


My goal is to get the phone system active with bluetooth ultimately. I have just purchased a phone module on eBay (2W93-19K350-AD) which my research tells me is sufficient to work with bluetooth. I am currently looking for a bluetooth module (2W93-14B409-AD Not sure if the last two letters need to match the phone module as found some module that end AB) and will then need to get it all connected together.


I have had a look at my wiring and don't think its bluetooth pre-wired - i have read conflicting inform,action on whether the 2004 UK S-Types were bluetooth prewired or not. If not I understand I will need to do some rewiring?


As I said I very much love my S-Type and am desperate to get the phone module working, especially as I have the touch screen controls and jaguar voice already installed. If anyone has any advice i would be very grateful.

Welcome to the Club, Gary.


I am no expert on electrics, and can only think that there is some bad connection somewhere.


There will be others with more savvy than me who will be able to offer ideas.

Got the same issue on the XKR however I have not bothered to investigate it even though I am an electrical engineer. I preferred instead to wire in a Parrot system which I had taken out of my previous car. I find the parrot satisfactory and I can see exactly who is calling me etc from its screen and it works with bluetooth. It will also facilitate more than 1 phone so if you have a company and personal phone both will work sufficiently whilst you are in the vehicle.
