  1. There was some obvious corrosion in the area of the fuse box / distribution panel, one of which was a power connection to the parking aid module.
  2. Solved 🙂 It was the result of corrosion on a contact in the boot fusebox.
  3. Is that standard OBC code reader or SDD John?
  4. Would you believe it? Everything has returned to normal this morning. I hope the fault has registered for diagnostics purposes because my techy is on the way now to have a look.
  5. Thanks John Both batteries are fine. Stop / start works... unfortunately 😉 I can't get to the OBC connector these days so I'll get my friendly ex JLR techy to take a look.
  6. Thanks Jim 🙂 Boot is bone dry and I replaced the boot loom a few months ago.
  7. The last few days, when the ignition is switched on, there is a high pitched warning sound and the message "Cameras not available refer to dealer" Along with the lack of parking camera I have also lost the parking sensors. No fault codes 😞 Any ideas please?
  8. Personally, I entrusted mine to a ZF agent. Some garages don't understand the fluid required and the procedure. They charged me £385 in total. That was 8 months ago.
  9. Just wondering if a club member who knows their way around Synology NAS and lives close to Wolverhampton might be prepared to set mine up properly please. It is a model DS1815+ It was previously setup by a numpty (that'll be me then) and there's no way I'm going to attempt to re-configure it on my own because I haven't got a clue what to do. Thanks in advance
  10. All's well that ends well 🙂 Perfectly functioning instrument cluster. Turnround time less than 48 hours. And the lights work properly again.
  11. I get my instrument cluster back tomorrow so hoping this fault will sort itself out 🙂
  12. I forgot to mention, the instrument cluster is out for LED replacements. Maybe that has something to do with it.
  13. 2013 XF-S V6 I just noticed this morning that although the car was switched off, some of the rear lights were on. The DRLs are also on. Any ideas please?
  14. You can buy an appropriate lead from fleabay or make one up if you've a stock of cables / connectors. You need a D2B connection for Voice.
  15. Does anybody know if the full search version is available please?
  16. I upgraded my 2008 XF Premium Luxury to the top of the range Bowers and Wilkins setup. I was lucky enough to have a donor car so the transplant was relatively painless. The head unit does need to be changed to the multi disk version, All the wiring was pre-installed with the exception of the centre dashboard speaker and it was no biggie to lay in a loom for that, IIRC, it took 2 hours from start to finish, plus 20 minutes programming with SDD. Overall, the B & W was well worth the time effort and cost. As far as cost was concerned, the breaker who had to donor car asked for £50 and I could take whatever I wanted.
  17. If you have heated / cooled seats it might be the underseat fan.
  18. I wouold agree with Jon. Laterstsatnav.co.uk are very quick and my update went with no problems.
  19. Problem solved 🙂 I used a couple of self adhesive anti-scratch felt feet on the plastic cover of the seat back locking latch. This gives just enough tension between the seat back and the bulkhead so that when unlocked it springs forward a millimetre or so, ensuring the lock dos not re-engage and the seat back can be pulled down. Simple and totally effective 🙂
  20. Nothing noble 🙂 It was the long term result of an accident while carrying out maintenance on a Nimrod aircraft while based on Assension Island. Anyway, I have a used cable and latch assembly on the way from ebay and a friend who will help fit it 🙂
  21. LOL. Mine is a displaced hip courtesy of the Falklands war. No chance of gtting into the boot myself 😞
  22. Yes, having just checked, that is the situation with mine. I wonder if there is some way of adjusting the cable so it doesn't immediately re-engage.
  23. Anybody able to help please? When I pull the release lever on the driver's side rear seat back it unlocks and drops into place. The passenger side lever moves but the seat doesn't release. Any ideas / assistance would be greatly appreciated Thanks
