  1. Hi Alan....welcome to the Forum It could possibly be the Air Con fans not working (e.g. seized) and the system kicking out because of it. Alternatively, it could be the a/c system relay. Had that happen on my Honda CR-V with the a/c relay which then tripped out and also put on the Engine Management lamp. Managed to get a new replacement relay from eBay for about £3 and reset the system which cured it. Let us know what you find
  2. Hi Phil Sorry to hear of your unfortunate dilemma with the dealership and the tainted XF. It tends to leave you with a bad taste that can take forever to lose, if at all. I would definitely return the car to them for a full refund as if they have to remove the dashboard to replace the leaking heater matrix then this can sometimes change the whole feeling of the car by introducing new squeaks and rattles of which constantly remind you of the initial problems. Sorry to add fuel to the fire but it does anger me to hear of some (not all) dealers deliberately palming off problem vehicles to the unsuspecting public. Keep up updated on the outcome
  3. sounds like the sensors need reprogramming to read the current pressures. you would need specialist equipment to carry out this procedure, but shouldn't cost much at a reputable Jaguar specialist repairer.
  4. Sounds like a glitch in the SDD programming...would mention it to the supplier and see if there is an update available
  5. Possibly overheating....is it Xenon?
  6. Sounds like there is a fault door sensor which could be the reason for the discharge. Is the interior light on with the doors closed?
  7. Hi Robert Not sure what gauge you are using to measure the pressures but possibly try one or two psi more in each tyre to see if that switches the light off and if necessary reduce the pressure if it doesn't work. A lot of petrol station forecourt pressure gauges are way off the mark so this could be the reason why the light is on
  8. I would contact your local dealership and request the code....they're normally quite obliging
  9. Hi Pete Sounds a bit obvious so my apologies for this but could it possibly be a faulty SD card? I have had issues with different SD cards that I use in my SLR Camera and always ensure I backup as soon as possible if and when the card corrupts. Maybe worth copying the contents onto another SD card and see how you get on. Let us know how it all goes Cheers, Trevor
  10. Hi Barry....welcome to the Club You could try ATP in Cannock as they specialise in ECU rebuilds Let us know how you get on with it Cheers, Trevor
  11. HI Stephen....welcome back to the wonderful world of Jaguar! got to be number 1 in my mind.....although this decision is definitely from the heart and not the head Let us know how you get on with it. Cheers, Trevor
  12. Jaguar’s Special Vehicle Operations division has developed a more restrained road-oriented version of the extreme XE SV Project 8 featuring a discreet new rear spoiler, delivering a covert design that belies the 600PS vehicle’s race track-honed performance capabilities Jaguar’s Special Vehicle Operations division has developed a more restrained road-oriented version of the extreme XE SV Project 8 featuring a discreet new rear spoiler, delivering a covert design that belies the 600PS vehicle’s race track-honed performance capabilities. The new Touring specification is available alongside existing 200mph Project 8 derivatives, which currently hold production sedan lap records on three continents – at circuits including the Nürburgring Nordschleife, Dubai Autodrome and Laguna Seca. The fixed Touring Spoiler replaces Project 8’s adjustable carbonfibre rear aerodynamic wing and is complemented by a fixed front splitter to maintain aerodynamic balance. Despite this significant aerodynamic revision, the 5.0-litre Supercharged V8 Project 8 with Touring Spoiler retains an extraordinary level of on-road performance and driver engagement for a sports sedan, accelerating from 0-60mph in 3.3sec (0-100km/h in 3.7sec) and on to a limited top speed of 186mph (300km/h). JAMAL HAMEEDI - ENGINEERING DIRECTOR, JAGUAR SPECIAL VEHICLE OPERATIONS Special Vehicle Operations will hand-assemble no more than 15 examples of the Touring specification Project 8 at its Technical Centre in Warwickshire, exclusively in four-seat configuration. Valencia Orange, Velocity Blue, Corris Grey Satin and British Racing Green paint finishes are available, while the absence of body decals – though optional – confirms this as the ultimate Q car. *A limited number of 200mph Jaguar XE SV Project 8s with adjustable front and rear aerodynamic devices, in either the four-seat or the two-seat Track Pack specifications, are still available to purchase from Jaguar Retailers – priced from £149,995 in UK
  13. Hi Paul....welcome to the Club It certainly looks like you have a very specific criteria for the car you are looking for, I hope you find a good one. I have moved your post into the XJS section of the Forum in the hope that someone can help you with your questions. Good to have you onboard Cheers, Trevor
  14. A steering wheel developed by Jaguar Land Rover could help keep drivers’ eyes on the road – by using heat to tell drivers when to turn left or right A steering wheel developed by Jaguar Land Rover could help keep drivers’ eyes on the road – by using heat to tell drivers when to turn left or right. The research, in partnership with Glasgow University, has created a ‘sensory steering wheel’, parts of which can be quickly heated and cooled to inform drivers where to turn, when to change lane or to warn of an approaching junction. This could be particularly useful when visibility is reduced through poor weather or the layout of the road. The technology has also been applied to the gear-shift paddles to indicate when hand over from the driver to autonomous control in future self-driving vehicles is complete. Driver distraction is a major contributor to road accidents around the world and accounts for 10 per cent of all fatal crashes in the USA alone*. Jaguar Land Rover’s research suggests thermal cues could be a way to keep drivers fully focused on the road. The cues work on both sides of the steering wheel, indicating the direction to turn by rapidly warming or cooling one side by a difference of up to 6oC. For comfort a driver could adjust the range of temperature change. Studies have shown** temperature-based instructions could also be used for non-urgent notifications, where vibrations could be deemed unnecessarily attention grabbing, for example as a warning when fuel is running low, or for upcoming events, such as points of interest. Thermal cues can also be used where audio feedback would be deemed too disruptive to cabin conversations or media playback. Alexandros Mouzakitis, Jaguar Land Rover Electrical Research Senior Manager, said: “Safety is a number one priority for Jaguar Land Rover and we are committed to continuously improving our vehicles with the latest technological developments as well as preparing the business for a self-driving future. “The ‘sensory steering wheel’ is all part of this vision, with thermal cues able to reduce the amount of time drivers have to take their eyes off the road. “Research has shown people readily understand the heating and cooling dynamics to denote directions and the subtlety of temperature change can be perfect for certain feedback that doesn’t require a more intrusive audio or vibration-based cue.”
  15. The all-electric Jaguar I-PACE has won Best Electric Powertrain, Best New Engine, and the 350 to 450PS category at The International Engine + Powertrain of the Year Awards Announced at the Engine Expo + The Powertrain Technology Show in Stuttgart, the panel of 70 expert motoring journalists from 31 countries took into account key characteristics including performance, driveability, energy efficiency and refinement. These three titles recognise the technical excellence of the I-PACE’s zero emissions powertrain, which was designed and developed in-house. "We’ve used all the benefits of state-of-the-art battery and motor technology to create a world-class electric vehicle. As well as zero emissions, the all-electric powertrain delivers an ideal balance of performance, refinement and range, together with outstanding responsiveness, agility and day-to-day usability. I-PACE is a true driver’s car, and above all a true Jaguar. We set out to make the world’s best all-electric performance SUV: these awards reflect that, and are fitting recognition for what the engineering team has achieved" IAN HOBAN - POWERTRAIN DIRECTOR - JAGUAR LAND ROVER We set out to make the world’s best all-electric performance SUV: these awards reflect that, and are fitting recognition for what the engineering team has achieved.” I-PACE’s 90kWh lithium-ion battery enables a range of up to 292 miles (WLTP). It’s capable of charging from 0-80% in just 40 minutes using a 100kW DC charger, or in just over ten hours when using a 7kW AC wallbox – ideal for overnight charging at home. A suite of smart, range-optimising technologies includes a battery pre-conditioning system: when plugged in the I-PACE will automatically raise (or lower) the temperature of its battery to maximise range ahead of driving away. A heat pump can scavenge energy from the outside air – even in sub-zero conditions – to reduce the amount of battery energy used by the climate control system. It can even utilise heat generated by the propulsion system to warm up the cabin, further reducing demand on the battery. The battery is placed centrally between the two axles, and as low down as possible. This location enables perfect 50:50 weight distribution and a low centre of gravity: together with the advanced double wishbone front and Integral Link rear suspension this is fundamental to the I-PACE’s agile handling and outstanding ride comfort. The permanent magnet motors are hollow, with the driveshafts passing through the centre. As well as being light – together with the transmission they weigh just 78kg – they’re also exceptionally compact. This contributes to the I-PACE’s spacious cabin, 656-litre luggage compartment volume and SUV ground clearance. Integrating the motors into the front and rear axles delivers all-wheel drive for outstanding traction and control in all conditions. They also enable high levels of regenerative braking – up to 0.4G. This maximises range, and also enables intuitive ‘single pedal’ driving in many conditions. I-PACE has received 66 global awards since it was revealed little more than a year ago, including 2019 World Car of the Year, World Car Design of the Year, World Green Car, European Car of the Year, and German, Norwegian and UK Car of the Year. The Jaguar I-PACE is available to order now, priced from £60,995 in the UK1, and can be configured at www.jaguar.com 1 On-the-road price; includes £3,500 UK Government plug-in vehicle grant
