Battery Reset Document

Recommended Posts

As an S-Type owner, you'll be aware (I guess) of how sensitive the electronics is to low battery voltage. You'll maybe not know though, what you're expected to do after dis-connecting and re-connecting the battery.

I've put together a PDF document which takes you through the procedure step by step. Nothing that isn't readily available elsewhere but just gathered together and (in my view) logically ordered into a single reference.

It also includes how to get the audio system working when you don't have the security code :yahoo:

I've been asked for it so many times that I though I'd make a thread just for access to that document so here it is:-

And an excellent document it is, Paul and well worth keeping with your owner's manual.

Good useful information. I tried to reset my windows as per earlier post I put up. I only managed to get the drivers window to work with one touch down but not one touch up. None of the other windows will operate with one touch. I've looked in my handbook and it does say that this is the case so surmising that it's a feature that's only fitted to newer models. Thanks again though for the info :thumbsup:

Hopefully this will help:

Battery reset:- 
 
Have radio code to hand BEFORE disconnecting battery. 
Restart the clock (where fitted) and set it to the correct time. 
Enter your radio code or if you do not have it then follow backdoor code below 
The code only works once you have entered the failed code 3 times 
Enter any code 3 times so that the display shows "PLEASE WAIT" 
Simultaneously press ">>" "PTY" "A.MEM" should only take 2 or 3 seconds and the radio turns on. 
You must press the buttons together i.e. at the same time 
 
Windows each window 
1. NOTE: After the battery has been disconnected it is necessary to initialize each door window motor separately to operate the "one-touch" up function. 
Operate the window control switch until the door window glass is in the fully closed position, continue to operate the window control switch for a further two seconds. 
2. Release the window control switch. 
3. Operate the window control switch in the closed position and continue to operate the window control switch for a further two seconds. 
4. Operate the window control switch until the door window glass is in the fully open position ("one-touch" down). 
5. NOTE: If the door window motor initialization has been completed correctly, when the window control switch is operated, the door window glass should move to the fully closed position ("one-touch" up) automatically. 
• NOTE: If the door window glass does not fully close automatically ("onetouch" up), repeat the complete procedure. 
Operate the window control switch once to the close position. 
6. Repeat the door window motor initialization for each door window motor. 
 
EPB reset 
1 Switch off ignition. 
2 Disconnect battery for 30 seconds reconnect battery (not required if battery changed). 
3 Start the engine. 
4 Confirm that the message "NOT CALIBRATED" or "APPLY FOOT AND PARK BRAKE" is displayed on the instrument cluster message centre. This indicates the the parking brake is in calibration mode. 
5 Lightly press the foot brake. 
6 Apply the parking brake by using the EPB switch. 
7 Release the parking brake. 
8 Release the foot brake. 
9 Confirm that the brake warning lamp is no longer illuminated on the instrument pack and that "NOT CALIBRATED" message is no longer displayed in the message centre. 
10 apply and release the EPB 5 times to ensure no error is present. 
 
Following reconnection of the battery, the engine should be allowed to idle until it has reached normal operating temperature as the stored idle and drive values contained within the ECM have been lost. 
Allow the vehicle to idle for a further three minutes. 
Drive the vehicle at constant speeds of approximately 48 km/h (30 mph), 64 km/h (40 mph), 80 km/h (50 mph), 96 km/h (60 mph) and 112 km/h (70 mph) for three minutes each. 
This may cause a driveability concern if the procedure is not carried out. This will allow the ECM to relearn idle values.

 

Note: My car is a 57 plate, the radio reset does not work with mine, I phoned my local Jaguar dealer who supplied the code for free.

It is worth printing off both the EPB and the battery reset documents and keeping them with your owners manual.

Hi all, The battery on my s type has completely discharged. On trying to jump start it, I'm getting a flashing brake warning.

Will following the directions in the pdf reset the brakes?

Any advice on how to reset them if the guidance is not relevant to this fault?

I'm new to owning an s type r  and am going to be doing some work on it soon which will require the battery disconnecting,  is there anything I need to do prior to removing the battery?? or is it a case of just following the pdf document on reconnection 

thanks Gareth

Hi Gareth and Welcome to the Club,

Other than making sure everything is switched off theres nothing to do other than follow the instructions and complete the re-set procedure after re-connecting the battery.

Cheers,

Steve

Make sure you have your radio code if it's available. Always preferable to using the cheat method outlined in the document.

Thanks for posting very useful,but i have the earlier S Type which i think does not have the 'radio fix'.

Is there a procedure for resetting the earlier radio?

Thanks again for posting the info.

Kind Regards

Graham
