  1. hello Jim , that fact that you are willing to help out some one you don't even know tells that you are among the few people out there that are truly kind hearted and not selfish. I would like to send you some cookies at Christmas time to show my appreciation. I will search my ALLDATA to inform myself what a clockspring in the steering wheel is and read up on the repair. Or is this something I should leave up to a Jaguar dealer or a well experienced mechanic. The area of the steering column is a place I don't like to mess with myself. Along time ago I had been messing around with a Fiat and got my hand stuck behind the dash. Not sure what I had touched but I was getting zapped continually until I unstuck my hand. I had to sit there for a few minutes until the hair on my head laid back down. About the lug nuts, all the video's I have watched so far seems like the inevitable of the chrome caps spinning are going to give me problems so I should defiantly heed your suggestion and deal with them now before I get stuck on the road with a flat tire. I checked out the e-bay listing you mentioned and they do look exactly what I need. I do have a question and it is not car related. I was looking at code readers on Diagnostic World and the listing on the lugs. When I do a conversion of US dollars to UK do I go with the GBP or the EUR conversion. I am not sure about the Brexit status you have been going through so a quick one word answer would work. Now about the ABS the guy who changed the oil for me had a code reader that he put on the car hopefully he was resting the change oil thingy on the car but he said as I mentioned in my initial post that the front passenger wheel was not communicating with the module your reply was that is easy fix can you elaborate a little more is most likely just acumination of dirt or you mean the sensor is fairly readily accessible to replace or can I just erase the code. The previous owner mentioned that he addressed the ABS and his mechanic replaced so fuse located under the front seat location of the car ? but it did not fix it obviously. Sorry that I am blah blah blahing but as I learn more about the car it will become a lot less blah blah. Thank you for your time. Edith hello thanks for the reply i start the car and the airbag icon on the dash starts to flash like a code it flash's once then a slight paus the flashes nine more times . it does this a couple of times then it stays on until i shut the car off. another question what the hell is with the lug nuts on the car. i do not have the lug key i do see that there are caps over the lug nuts how do you get these off without destroying the caps.

  3. Hello Everyone, New Jag owner here. Bought a 2004 S Type with 35,000 on it, manufacture in UK.. Car is a beauty inside and out except for a couple of amber warning dash light. Message in the center dash reads ABS FAULT and DSC not available, and Air Bag indicator that stays on. I took it to a local mechanic , not a jag dealer, to have the oil changed and a brief look over. The dealer wanted $300.00 us dollars for an oil change. Anyways he put his OBD reader on it and it came back with front passenger side wheel not communicating with ABS system. The mechanic not being familiar with Jags, actually he said it was the first one he had worked on, suspected that there was a loose/corroded or a chewed through wire between the ABS wheel sensor and the ABS pump module. The car drives and stops just fine but I do not like that there is warning light on in the dash. I am very familiar with the basics of a car and have always preformed my own repairs but this car intimidates me and I am afraid of doing more harm than good if I do my own repairs on it. So my main questions are is there any helpful DO'S and DON'TS that I should know about before I try to do my own repairs. And is the ABS situation a common problem and easy to fix. I have a lot of more comments to say as far as background info on the car but will hold off on them and cross my fingers that someone on this chat board will be willing to help me answer some of my question.
