Battery Reset Document

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:-

  Battery problems again,my fault as I have not had time to even run the car for the last couple of weeks ,I checked the battery voltage and was surprised to find a reading of 11.6 volts ,over 14 with the engine running ,I would not have called 11 volts low but apparently it is.

I have now reset almost everything ,tried to put the wrong code into the radio ,it now says please wait,I will try that again in the morning. So I have to do the initialising run,anyone know how pedantic the steps are? I have little chance of doing 30mph for three minutes on a Friday morning,the same goes for 40 or 50,and the M5 is a couple of miles away before I have any chance of hitting these speeds.

Hi Mike,

Taking the car on a run to ensure battery charge is effected should not be a problem, and the steps you have detailed are ideals rather than necessities.   I Iive in a busy conurbation and do a lot of shorter runs so I do need to keep that battery well charged.  I have a little C Tek "traffic Light" which will go from red to amber on a 3 mile drive. While a longer run is needed, I just drive and find that about 30 miles will see my battery fully charged no matter what speed I do. I do put by battery on charge about every two weeks if I have not done a longer run.

Regards,

Peter.

I have replaced my battery a few times over the years and was unaware that this procedure was required. I reset my radio stations and that was all. May I ask if this procedure is dependent on a specific year S-type? Or possibly models with view screens? My Jag is a 2003 S-type 4.2L.
