Ayup from Nottingham! I am a new member and owner of an '06 S-Type 2.7D. I have owned it for about 15 months and have been doing maintenance and other things as I drive it - or when IT decides it needs it! TBH it's only let me down once, but that's once too often really....don't fancy it again!!

It's just passed its MOT (only 1 advisory left..), but developed a 'Gearbox Fault' on its way for retest. Only temporarily, but I'm now looking to have a full gearbox service carried out VERY soon!!

1 thing that is really annoying is that the front heated screen has never worked since I've had it. It makes icy winter morning drives difficult to impossible. I have checked several things, fuses, relays, some continuity etc, but I'm drawing a blank. Can anyone point me in the right direction or help please?

It's good to be a member of the club at last, I look forward to chatting and learning from you guys and gals.

Cheers - Mick

PS let me know what you think to the old girl...

Hi mick, welcome to the club. I also have a 2006 s type with the V6 diesel and have owned it since the day before lock started. Never let me down when out but failed to start on the drive one day. Jumped started it and continued with my day. Had the family buy me a trickle charger no problems since..

Welcome to the Club, Mick.

I have the S Type 2.7 diesel [07], and have owned in for eight and a half years without any real problems.

Battery issues have existed now and then and to avoid them I bought a Ctek charger and put a connection outside the garage where I cam make sure the battery never runs out of its needs. Batteries on the 5 type last about 5 years.

Windscreen issues in the winter can be avoided by a windscreen cover overnight - a plastic or even a cardboard cover can do the job.  It could be that the heater for the windscreen needs an examination — it had been known that a replacement windscreen had not had the heater element.

Good luck for the future.

Regards,

Peter.

HI Chidders, thanks for the reply. It was the alternator that fried half way round the M25 for me....£262 back on the road.

Old Peter, nice to hear from you, thanks for the info. Battery seems OK if I drive regularly, charger idea is a good one tho for when i'm not using the Jag (I have another car).

Windscreen cover is a great idea for winter. I have just had a new heated front screen installed and can see the heater wires in it. Also, I can get it to work if I manually activate the relevant relays in the fusebox (relay covers removed). It seems that there is no power being sent to the relays when heater is activated, although the little light illuminates on the switch. Is this a common issue? Is there a way to test the climate control unit? Any answers/pointers in the right direction gratefully received!

Thanks - Mick
