Recommended Posts

Hi Mark,

Welcome to Jaguar Owners Club.

I found an old answer in the forums here for an s type 2004

Driving Position Memory
To cancel key transmitter memory recall:
1. Press the MEMORY button: the red LED will illuminate for a five second period.
2. Press any button on the key transmitter (except the panic button), then press the MEMORY button again. Both button presses must occur while the red LED is illuminated.
 
Driving position memory system operating tips
• When making adjustments to a set driving position, reset the new position in the same memory channel.
• A driving position will only be memorised during the five second period when the red memory LED is illuminated.
• Previous memory is erased when a new driving position is entered.
• Make sure that the seat has completed moving into the required memory position before shifting the gear selector from the P position, or in the case of manual transmission, releasing the parkbrake.
• If the seat memory does not recall correctly, the seat may require to be recalibrated. This may be due to an interruption in the electrical supply. To recalibrate the seat it should be powered fully forwards and backwards, and fully upwards and downwards.

Hi Julie,

It is possible that the driving position on the 04 s type is different from the 08 s type.

My s type 07 drivers seat reruns to neutral position when the key is taken out and returns to it driving positions as set. That is the only stored position.

Hi Peter,

True it could be different, My old S type was like yours it returns to position.

Just looked like MPT`s was not doing that so I found the above info to see if it helped.

I have seen articles in publications about similar problems but they where on other models.

Still learning ☺️

Kind Regards,

Julie.

With the park brake engaged simply press the accelerator to move off, the park brake disengages automatically.

Hi Julie,

Jim is quite correct.  

The electric park brake is very useful.  When you stop and put on the park brake on you have no worries when you start as the brake will switch itself off.  I have been over the the very steep hills in the Lake District several times.

Just keep you car battery charged.

Have you got the Owner's manual?

Regards,

Peter.

Hi Peter,

Good you put my mind at ease, I had so much trouble with Jeep electric park brake (and the electrics in general)

I was just a little worried.

I will read the manual later just been a bit hectic today.

The car I have is in a lovely condition for 2005, only thing I have to sort out is it has only one key.

Just sold my old X type. Had a lot of trouble with time wasters and odd people, never advertise on Facebook!

Also I have a copy of your book now, not read much yet but enjoying it.😃

Best Regards,

Julie.
