  1. hi all any one else had this problem, when it has been cold when trying to start my 2011 XF the start button comes on but it will not start, the brake pedal is rock hard so I have to unlock the car lock it again press the brake pedal very hard several time then it will start? this has happened now a couple of times anyone else had this happened. cheers Dave
  2. Hi Steve thanks for that information at least I know he I wasn't feeding me bull warrentee company WMS Safe &Sound ultimate car warrentees in most cases cover for all mechanical & electrical parts even wear and tear,so they say hopefully they cover the water in fuel sensor .
  3. Hi Steve, thanks for that I have put in to jag specialist for a full service anyway so he said he will plug it in on a machine for the faults, any way here we go he has done the full service £260+VAT £35 + VAT fault finding? renewed a water in Diesel sensor £40 +VAT =£529 not happy he didn't even contact me to ask if I wanted the sensor fixing .now getting back to my air vents he said he has disconnected the heater element in the Matrix as when he done this al vents and heating started to work as soon as he plugged it back in it stopped so he said that it is not Required in this country as its only for colder countries and he has done this to two other Jags in the last 12 months, said the heater will work without it ?don't know if this is true. lets hope it is. I have a ultimate Warrentee cover for the car that covers wear & tear as well so I might be able to claim on the with a bit of luck .
  4. hi Jon. I did mine a few weeks ago, got them off Ali express, also changed my rear number plate lights to LED easy fit .they must be Cambus type bulbs so you don't get any error messages on Dash . I got a pack of 10 all together to do all the interior & Footwell lights I think I paid about £9 and they just pop out and pop back in if they don't work turn them around and it should work then very nice light not to bright. cheers Dave.
