  1. You would be best advised to have the codes read first in order to get a way forward. My feeling though, is either a wheel sensor/ wiring fault or rusty reluctor ring.
  2. For a fully charged battery you should see 12.8v, anything less than 12.4v and your battery will start sulphating.
  3. Excellent news and thanks for the update.👍
  4. I can confirm when mine was done it took around 45 minutes.
  5. That sounds like a leak somewhere. I would recommend going to the Jag Specialist in Doncaster, they will vacuum test the system for leaks and, if all is ok, refill with the correct amount of refrigerant.
  6. Will Mister Philip know you're coming Ma'am? Oh he'll know Paddington, he'll know
  7. No rev indication on trying to start would point to the crank position sensor being at fault.
  8. Unfortunately, XF’s are prone to lock malfunctions. The most likely problem is micro switches in the lock mechanism itself at fault. Before you go paying for unnecessary parts, having the codes read would be a good idea.
  9. Your first port of call should be to fully charge the battery, if that doesn’t change things then have the codes read to see what the car is saying.
  10. This may give you a better understanding Paul. https://www.acdiagnosis.com/post/proper-auto-a-c-vent-temperature-what-temperature-should-the-a-c-blow
  11. Here’s the workshop manual, http://www.jagrepair.com/images/AutoRepairPhotos/CarPDFFiles/SType/S-Type 2002.5-2008-FSM-Workshop.pdf and for the electrical manual, http://www.jagrepair.com/images/AutoRepairPhotos/CarPDFFiles/SType/S-Type-Electrical-2006on.pdf
  12. Yes, this is correct. Had your wife stopped the car, she would not have been able to restart it. Furthermore, there would have been a warning on the dash to say the fob was missing from the car as she drove away.
  13. You may find the system might just need topping up. Have the system pressure tested to ensure there are no leaks, at the same time, they will be able to tell you how much refrigerant is in the system and whether it needs topping up or not.
  14. Here is the part number you quoted and available. https://parts.jaguarlandroverclassic.com/c2z12659-steering-column-lock.html
  15. Welcome to the forum Mark. A steering lock is worth getting as it acts as a visual deterrent. The best thing to buy is a couple of Faraday pouches to keep your fobs in when you’re not using the car.
  16. Assuming your car is fault free, when fully locked there is a natural discharge of 30milliamps, anything above this figure is considered to be a parasitic drain due to a fault. If you do have a “parasitic drain” then all a CTEK will do is mask the problem, although it will keep your battery charged.
  17. Try Michelin’s, you won’t be disappointed.
  18. It’s more than likely that your “alarm chirp sounder” may be the source of the draw. It is underneath the drivers side bonnet catch. A CTEK will only mask the problem until it’s resolved.
  19. Have a read of this, it will give you all the info you require. https://www.jaginfo.org/threads/oil-service-top-extraction-method-v6-diesel.93529/#post-2364121
  20. Excellent work and a very neat installation too.🤙
  21. Welcome to the forum. Forcing them will do more harm than good. You will need to remove the painted cover first. This will reveal the amount of crud that has built up around the operating mechanism, all of which needs to be cleaned out. Lubricate on completion of cleaning and you should be ok.
  22. Welcome to the forum. Yes you have done the right thing, enjoy.👍
  23. Here you go, https://jaguarspares-northeast.co.uk/product/jaguar-x300-rear-springs/
  24. This is the one, https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/303707027552
  25. No settings to change, you are responsible for ensuring the car is in park before exiting the vehicle.
