    Hi Derek, have you tried uninstalling the app from the phone and reinstalling? Also you could try you could try an incar reset by pressing and holding the right overhead call button until the light stops flashing around 15 seconds. It may still connect to Jag rescue but tell them you are just resetting the Incontrol. From memory you have to lock the car then unlock and drive the car around 3 miles and uninstall and reinstall the app on your phone. The other thing is charge the battery and then go for a drive WITHOUT uninstalling anything. That sometimes kicks it back in. I usually wait a day or so and miraculously it all starts working again.

    I will be renewing my 3 year rolling service plan in the new year but that is because it is tied to a "warranty 4 life" (Non-Jag). Looking at the cost of fixed price servicing for 3+years at Jag Dealers your service at 4 years and 6 years if you include a Brake fluid change would be around £800-900. Add to that the cost of the 2 year Service and you are probably not far off your quote.Personally I would never go 2 years between oil changes but I am old school 🙂 For me the decider is do you rate the dealers service and how much is it worth to have a contractual service arrangement with a main dealer in case of future problems? Obviously if you were happy to go to a specialist rather than a main dealer you could probably halve that quote. Decisions Decisions 🙂

    Tom, I had for many years a service plan for my Jags and swore by them as it spread the costs over the year so did not get a big bill once a year. However, when I changed main dealer I was persuaded to go for Fixed Price Servicing (by the sealer) as it worked out much cheaper for the same thing. I now do the Fixed Price servicing, yes I have a bill in one hit but at less cost. Worth chatting to your main dealer. Hope this helps.

    I have a 2010 XF and this uses the cd unit in the boot (on the left hand side) the mapping was ok but not current so I got a new 2019 disc on Amazon for just under £20. It worked fine with no lag or delay.

    Update.... Had to take the car in for window repair (drivers failing to close properly). While it was in, they updated the map 🙂 To get Live updates I'll need a data microsim (on phone contract). Questions: 1. What size (monthly GB) will be good enough? 2. Given I'll have to pay for the sim plus Incontol app every 3 years, is it worth even bothering or should I just use my phone? Thanks

    On my XF the boot lid can be made to open by itself, there are 2 Springs one on each side and they are behind the side walls off the boot. The Spring comes from the curved arm and are attached to a Bracket towards the rear lights, and i've used a strong cord to adjust the Springs, you can pull the end off the Spring out of it's present position and hook it into another position nearer to the rear lights. I've tried the boot lid adjusted with 2 Springs but i found it lifted the boot lid too quickly, so i've reverted to just using one Spring. And it opens with the key fob and the switch below the steering wheel, but be careful when driving because it you hit the switch the boot lid could fly open Regards Tom.

    Hi Damian I've never heard of an ignition key, must be something foreign I guess hah! Google Maps are pretty safe really, well, as safe as anything can be these days and at least they are constantly being updated and totally free to use.

    Good Afternoon All Well, I’ve upgraded... I was more than happy with my 2003 2.5 S Type but after the service report about 5 months ago I realised she needed to go...and quickly. The replacement has put me on cloud 9. 2005 3.0 S Type, 53000 on the clock...I can’t wait for some meetings to start! Hope everyone is safe and well. Attached some pics. Dave K

    Could also be a slightly worn brake pedal switch.

    I would guess it will be the 'clock spring' (squib) that is causing the problem ? Had the same issue with my car but also accompanied by the airbag warning light flashing. Replaced the clock spring unit and problem(s) solved.

    Hi I just wanted to add to this thread and say and MASSIVE THANK YOU to you guys for highlighting this issue and the fix. My 2013 XF Sportbrake had a failed alternator. When swopped I got the double beep mislock. Long story short been hunting for the solution for ages getting the SDD software, blah, blah. Eventually found this thread and phoned local garage with Autologic software. Took the printout of this thread and 15 mins and £54 later problem fixed ! The garage for reference was All Trans Autos in Stanway, Colchester. They managed to fit me in within a week. The local Jag dealer couldn't see me for a month, wanted £168 to hook up their machine and seemingly from this thread wouldn't have known how to fix it. They started saying it was probably a door lock..... All power to the internet and the posters on here. Cheers Mike

Today, in an online version of its annual New Car Awards ceremony, the verdict of the 182,000 voters was revealed with Jaguar scooping the accolade for the best technology. "Jaguar owners are a happy bunch when it comes to their car’s features, which is why the Coventry Cat has won Auto Trader’s Car Brand with the Best Tech Award. Drivers remarked on a “top-class interior” and talked of “superb driver aids”, including smartphone connection and the ability to start the car remotely on a cold day. Well done, Jaguar" ERIN BAKER - EDITORIAL DIRECTOR OF AUTO TRADER Jaguar vehicles are brimming with smart and convenient features to complement modern life. Features most popular with drivers are the 10-inch Touchscreen for swipe and pinch-to-zoom control of maps, media and settings, intelligent voice recognition, heads-up display and interactive driver display - all of which give Jaguar drivers the control they need over their environment without compromising the reward of driving.

    Jaguar is the first manufacturer to offer customers an all-electric RACE eTAXI experience around the epic Nürburgring Nordschleife Thrill-seekers and fans of electric vehicles can now experience the sports car performance of the I-PACE at the most demanding race circuit in the world with a professional driver behind the wheel. The zero-emissions model can accelerate from 0-100km/h in 4.8 seconds (0-60mph in 4.5 seconds) thanks to its state-of-the-art 90kWh lithium-ion battery, which develops 400PS and 696Nm of torque. The performance SUV will feel at home in all weathers around the 20.8km, 73-corner Nordschleife thanks to its dynamic handling and all-wheel drive; the zero-emissions I-PACE – 2019 World Green Car of the Year – will be able to cope with any conditions the circuit known as the ‘Green Hell’ has to offer. The introduction of the first all-electric RACE eTAXI is another step in Jaguar’s electrification strategy as it enables more people to experience Jaguar’s award-winning I-PACE first-hand. Jaguar is no stranger to electric race cars, with the Panasonic Jaguar Racing team preparing for a fourth season in Formula E. Jaguar has also completed its inaugural season of the Jaguar I-PACE eTROPHY, the first all-electric single-make competition of its kind in the world, which features a grid of close-to-production I-PACE racers. The new experience is available from now until the end of the season in late November and costs from €149 per lap.

    The Jaguar Special Vehicle Operations-developed XE SV Project 8 has demonstrated its breadth of performance capability by setting the fastest Nürburgring Nordschleife lap time for a four-door production car again: 7min 18.361sec This new officially-verified time on the 20.6km (12.8-mile) lap is 2.9 seconds faster than Project 8’s previous benchmark set in November 2017 and 7 seconds faster than any other four-door production car has achieved. Project 8 is also the first vehicle to set an official whole lap record in the Nürburgring’s mid-range production car class, lapping the 20.8km (12.94-mile) circuit length in 7min 23.164sec. Returning to the legendary German circuit in a production-specification two-seat Track Pack version of Project 8 was development driver Vincent Radermecker. The car’s height-adjustable twin-spring coil-over suspension was set in ‘track’ ride height, with adjustable front splitter and carbonfibre rear aerodynamic wing positioned for maximum downforce and stability. To maximise performance and steering precision, for the final record runs Project 8 was fitted with new off-the-shelf ultra-high performance Michelin Pilot Sport Cup 2 R tyres. Tested and chosen by SV engineers for their capability on the track, the road-legal tyres use rubber compounds directly transferred from Michelin’s competition tyres. JAMAL HAMEEDI ENGINEERING DIRECTOR, JAGUAR SPECIAL VEHICLE OPERATIONS Powered by the most highly tuned 600PS version of Jaguar’s 5.0-litre Supercharged V8, the all-wheel-drive Project 8 is capable of 0-60mph in 3.3 seconds (0-100km/h in 3.7 seconds) and a top speed of 200mph (320km/h). Project 8 also features a fully-enclosed flat underbody for enhanced aerodynamics, which is key to its performance. Production of the limited-edition Project 8 will finish this year. There are three distinct four-door specifications available: Lightweight two-seat Track Pack* – as used for the record lap times Four-seat configuration with same aero package and performance as Track Pack Touring specification with discreet fixed rear spoiler – the ultimate Q-car, limited to 15 examples worldwide and 186mph. Prices for the Jaguar XE SV Project 8 start from £149,995 in the UK. For more information, and to find your nearest Jaguar Retailer, visit: www.jaguar.com/project8
