Jaguar Land Rover Range Rover Diagnostic IDS SDD JLR PRO 160.04 FULL CHIP Cable


Recommended Posts

Help and/or assistance please:

I have purchased the diagnostics (as in the title) and have it installed on a computer to the exact specification as requested by the suppliers. The installation is good.

However myself and my son in law (he being very computer literate, me at almost 72 years young not being so very good. I am mechanically OK and he not so much so. Between us we manage well.) cannot seem to find our way through the process of using the software to make a diagnosis.

I have found an on line copy of the Jaguar Technician Instructions to using this diagnostic facility but it is some 3000 pages on a "Pdf" file and is plainly designed as a "teach in" document and NOT a "teach yourself document."

Any help you may know of or could recommend would be very appreciated and we would both be grateful.

Best Wishes and Regards, John

if you have installed version v160, it does not work with pre 2005 cars, that used Jaguar IDS software, only has SDD software

I use version v130, which works with all jaguars up to 2011, it has Jaguar IDS and SDD

IDS is for pre 2005 cars and SDD is for cars after 2005

is you car pre facelift or post face lift, pre face lift IDS, post face lift SDD

V130 is best for the S-type, last updates for S-type were 2009, which are all on version 130

also what are you wanting to do with it, if your planning on updating modules, programing, you need both dvd's installed, a very good power supply to keep battery on charge, 25 amps plus, a descent windows xp pro laptop with a good battery,

dont recommend using the software with virtual image software that simulates window xp, very unstable, if the battery on the car goes low, or laptop goes off or crashes mid updating or programing it will brick that module and render it useless

      Jaguar is commemorating the end of its internal combustion sports car lineage in 2024 with an exclusive limited-edition F-TYPE inspired by two iconic 1960s racing E-types

      Just 150 examples of the F-TYPE ZP Edition will be the last internal combustion-engined sports cars designed by Jaguar. These 575PS supercharged petrol V8 F-TYPEs feature specially curated interior and exterior details by the personalisation experts at SV Bespoke.
