Thank you for the link. but this looks very hard to use with all the numbers on it i would have a hard time finding the correct one to use. The tpm system let you know if there is a problem in real time which is what i am after due to the roads i have to use for work. (roads lol tracks would be a better description)

Sorry for the link (which incidentally despite all of the numbers it leads straight to a specific item, the one I use) it was just my failed attempt at adding a slight bit of humour to the day. Hope you can find a Tyre Pressure Monitoring System that suits your needs.

I apologise, Best Wishes and Regards, John

hi all good mate that is how i read it, and had a laugh. In some ways i do wish to bring back a time when we all had time to use great items like this. i miss some of those times like the old feeler gauge ! but with time  its now using tech so i have peace of mind and know there are been look after. I am sorry if my reply made you think i was having a go it was not my intention in any way.

I am by no means against technology or advancing at all. My problem is that I was brought up using a "slate and chalk" ?????? to write and today I have big problems with a lot of technology. E.G. I invested in what I was informed was the best diagnosis equipment I could buy for my S Type, IDS/SSD and a separate computer to run it. I have still not as yet, probably three months, had any success in using what seems to be a very complicated system. So at the moment I rely on my Foseal Diagnostic OBD 11, which although is of modern technology, I can readily and successfully utilise it. Bring on the day when I can remember my name !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Best Wishes , John

Hi john i think the same something you plug in and read. I have only had my Jag for about 6mths and reading about these OBD readers that you need to have to help you save time and money. So i went looking for just a basic one and seen the one you said about you can plug them in and they stay there some bluetooth to your phone other wifi to a computer. Why?  a good OBD would do the same i think. So tech is what you pick and choose from it. i would like to fit the above tpm system as i said one less thing.

Computer set up and linking. First thing to check is the ids/ssd able to talk to the computer. should tell you in the info basic requirements to run. 2/ can your computer see the reader but it does not work? this normally comes down to a soft wear so check your firewall ect. any more info on this i would be happy to help if i can.

Mark, The computer was bought on a specification as recommended by the software seller and was set up by a young man that is well versed in computer and software set up. It all talks to each other, once plugged into the car, and is just a case of spending enough time and patience with the darned thing to actually master how it works. I have heard, despite being told it is about the best you can get, that it is somewhat complicated to use until you are used to it. I did manage to find a Jaguar document on the internet which is plainly not the easiest to understand. It consists of some 3000 pages on a pdf document and as far as I can see it is a "teach in classroom" and not a "teach yourself Job". To read the document and understand it without someone who knows it teaching you as well would be a life times work for me. My son in law is reasonably astute with Computers and he is going to see if he can get to grips with it. I doubt much will get done now until the New Year.

Cheers, John

Why does tech stuff have to be so hard ? Always it seems that when they say "plug and play"  that's true, but they forget to say about the time you need to spend to understand it. With me it's the washing machine ! so many things to program in and now i can link my mobile phone to it and do it when away from home ? why would you need that? All i need it do do is wash and sometimes dry. This is tech now and why would not want to put on a wash via your mobile phone. with the pdf i am the same most of it way above my head so use it for pointers.
