I am new to this forum and currently owner of 2 Jags, 2004 X type 2.0D, and recently purchased 2006 S type 2.7D Sport.  The X type I will sell as soon as I can bring myself to part with it also there are a couple of issues to sort on the S type.

If anyone can point me in the right direction for answers to cure Park brake Fault, (Caused by low battery voltage I think) I would appreciated.

I am also trying to find out if this vehicle has fold in mirrors ( my X type has them so it seems reasonable to expect them on the S type)?

I have sorted the parking sensors by replacing  2 faulty ones.

Otherwise chuffed to bits with it.

Hi John and welcome to the club.

First, the park brake.  This sometimes also happens to me, particularly when it is cold.

You will need to have the Radio code on hand before you start.  Disconnect the battery for a short time with the ignition switched off.

Reconnect the battery and start the engine. The alarm will possible go off and you will also get the message APPLY FOOT AND PARK BRAKES.

Apply the park brake a few times and allow the engine to idle a short time.

You will need to reset the windows and possibly the SatNav if you have the touch screen fitted.

Raistlin [Paul] has written a full set of directions which he will send you if required.

If fold in windows are fitted , there are instructions in the handbook on page 95, but if you do not have a handbook, put the  set mirror switch in the centre and the press the bottom of the button above which will fold them in. To fold them back just  the button again.

Let us know how you get on.
