  3. Why do people buy from a garage, discover that the car is faulty and then pay out to have it fixed? It is down to the garage, and if they will not do what is required of them take them to the Small Claims Court.

  4. Last week my key fob ran out of power and I had to use it manually. This did annoy be somewhat as I had to change the battery in the key fob- I did this myself about 5 months ago, spending a whole Β£1 in Poundland for two Batteries and one has failed β€” So much for Kodak. Duracell cost about Β£5 for two batteries and give a longer life - over two years. I found a company on eBay called Buy a Battery where I ordered a Duracell a 2 pack for Β£1.24 0n the 21st July which arrived on the 22nd July at a total cost of Β£2.98. I will buy batteries there now β€” BuyaBattery -Unit 8 Southgate Industrial Park, Heywood, Lancs β€” or BuyaBattery.co.uk.

  6. I'm not even convinced about global warning. First we had the ozone layer problem, then that magically fixed itself apparently. Then we had the issue of cutting down too much of the rainforests, citing that the Amazon (forest not website) may provide up to a third of the world's oxygen, then science proved it hardly proves any because the forest is so dense that little oxygen can escape. Then another report claimed 6 out of the top 10 world climate scientists said that it was a natural progression - every few thousand years or so the temperature goes up and down. That's a known fact, and previous fluctuations can't be blamed on the industrial revolution! As for lithium, it's extremely dangerous, extremely toxic and very difficult and expensive to recycle. Currently the powers that be are talking about burying much of the waste. I believe there's a huge man made lithium pool somewhere in South America where most of the world's lithium is produced, mined or whatever and it's said to be the most toxic place on earth. And we've only just started! The cars, well I don't think they've thought it through. Who's going to want to buy a 10 year old hatchback for a couple of grand when they're going to have to spend another 4-5 grand replacing the knackered batteries? What do people do for overnight charging who live in flats and apartments and don't have a dedicated parking space? Half the houses on our street don't have a driveway, What do they do? I could go on of course, but I'm far from convinced that scrapping millions of cars with ICE engines to usher in electric vehicles is the way to go. Surely the place to start is with trucks and buses, and even replacing diesel trains. For me the whole thing is a sales gimmick to help the ailing car industry who are struggling to come up with anything new.

  8. Thanks for allowing me to join. I've just purchased a 2018 edition XE RSport 2L Petrol. I did a lot of research first, having never owned a Jaguar before. I'm used to driving the German standards...Merc C Class and BMW 3 Series. I've got to say that the driving experience of the XE is just as good if not better. I know it's all a matter of taste but I also prefer the understated interior when compared to the German rivals.

  9. Just got my first jag two weeks ago 2005 x-type 2.1 it’s nowhere near as powerful as my 2007 Ford falcon but I’m loving the ride and the fwd! Takes a bit of getting used to the indicators and window wipers on opposite sides though 😝

  10. 2009 models aren't affected. It's only those of us with X250 Facelift models that have to worry. About 2011 to 2015. Also there are settings savers that feed a low voltage current via the OBD11 socket that may prevent the problem. Apparently the modules only need around 3-4 volts to retain their settings.

  11. Probably cheaper than having to drive to a garage that has Autologic and then the cost of correcting the central locking if you do not have a slave battery.

  16. Hi Rob, I am a big S type fan, hope to get one in month or two. I have read of a similar problem. Intermittent problems with air bag lights appearing , 3 beeps, not the horn sounding, quieter beeps. The problem in that case was the battery. He only did short trips after a good long run it cured the problem in his case. Do you just do short journeys? was the car standing for a long tome? Could be just low battery or need anew one possibly. Best Rgds, Julie.

  20. Like a kid with a new toy on Christmas day. We picked up the XKR today, a 2008 X150 with 27,000 miles on the clock which has been well loved by its previous owner. Spent the afternoon fiddling around with settings and learning where everything is and then took her to have some new front tires fitted. The ones fitted to the car were the originals from 2008 .🀨 Also popped off the rear seat cover to take out fuse 19 for the exhaust valves . Free extra burble, what's not to love.πŸ˜€ Quick question if I may, I can't get the audio system to recognise my USB stick with music on it. Can anyone say what format it accepts in term of the USB formatting, size, MP3s etc. I've attached a few pics and am looking forward to learning all about this beautiful girl.

  22. and make sure you connect a slave battery to the positive terminal clamp and the earth to a convenient earth point. You can find plenty of posts about central locking not working after disconnecting a battery. Jaguar issued a TSB. Jaguar solution is to replace the Central and Rear Junction Boxes - not cheap, though it seems that they can be reprogrammed via Autologic. I replaced my batteries a couple of months ago, the stop start was not working, and reset the BMS but no stop start. Then suddenly, the stop start started working last week. A little worrying the first time, thought something had gone wrong when the engine stopped.

  23. Hi You should always replace an AGM with an AGM. They are a very different design to the standard (including Calcium) wet cell. The main difference is their ability to recover from deep discharge which is what you get with stop/start use. In addition the cars charging system is designed for the difference so if you use the wrong sort you may well get a premature failure of the new battery if it is not an AGM. https://batteryuniversity.com/learn/article/absorbent_glass_mat_agm John

  24. Calcium ones are lead acid batteries, with different grids inside instead of lead, AGM seen to be the best at the moment, there gel and dont leak and have better output amp and cranking amps got mine from battery megastore, good value and got it next day, this was before covid though cheers Joe

  25. I have a problem that puts my 3 litre xf into Restricted Performance mode at high acceleration. My code reader says that it is something to do with Boost sensor A circuit. Has anyone got any answers to this problem??

  26. BOTH my Smart keys do not work with my XF RSport 2018. One of them had been playing up recently. Most of the time it opened/closed the car but occasionally it didn't. I have put a new battery in but it still doesn't work. I tried the spare key. That didn't work either. Changed the battery in that and still no joy. So it can't be the Smart key batteries. I can open the car with the App and start the car - but only by placing the Smart Key on the steering column. It then says "Smart key no longer in vehicle" which is clearly untrue. It is just not recognising it. Can anyone help please?
