Losing the love already!!

So bought this back in Nov, 2014 XF's. My second as love the car but have a few issues. Awaiting it going in to get the diff checked (24th) as get a low drone when I hit 90mph and on inspection the diff looks damp, so probably needs a seal and a fill with any luck. 

But now I have a door not locking on the key fob (drivers) so get the double beep and the mirrors don't close. Any obvious fixes for this, was thinking a generous spray of WD40 might help????

Also, can't get a read out for my Oil level. I know to switch engine off leave for a few mins then flick through the menu until you get the details. But it says on Oil screen, unavailable see handbook. Handbook does not say how to fault find only how to get reading. Would appreciate any help before I need to book it in to the stealers to fix.

Thanks chaps, so love it don't want to get rid of it so soon so please give me your thoughts.

Did you purchase the car privately or through a dealer? If the latter, I would go back to the dealer as there should be a warranty period even if only a few months. 

I have a 2010 XF and get the same issue sometimes with the doors not locking and just get the beep. I open and close all of the doors again and it seems to work for me. So maybe WD40 is the way forward?

Already had £500 back off the dealer for other issue. I'm done with their excuses.

You have to wait ten minutes for the oil level bit

Mirrors will fold when the door lock’s fixed or replaced, they are linked

Get the diff fixed, otherwise it’ll cost you an arm and a leg

Something stirred in the remaining 'grey matter' cell ...

Click the 'Cancel' button on the right-hand side of the steering wheel twice. That makes my Oil Level show - but it might not have had the full amount of time to drain down to the correct level so could be a misleading short cut! The Oil Level will also show if you have the bonnet up and click through the trip computer stalk button too.

Try the WD40 first. I had a couple of door lock mechanisms replaced, both offside, and lost the 'double beep' the doors locked correctly and the mirrors folded afterwards. It was about £125 each mechanism at Swallows Jaguar.

And the winner in Rich Askew. Clicked the Cancel button a couple of times then the Oil Level showed every time. Thanks. Will book the car in to the stealers for the lock issue. WD40 never worked over night.

Door locks are another weak point, often freeze so you can open the door but they wont stay closed when you want to drive off until warmed up, certainly a characteristic 😆
