  1. hi if your getting restricted performance, then theres fault codes, you need to read the codes while the fault still active codes should point you in the right direction, could be absoluetly anything cheers Joe
  2. Hi Thats usually a bad window motor/electronics the press it 8 times is a emergency mode to shut the window needs a new windoe motor cheers Joe
  3. Hi Look good, be interesting if they pass MOT might be a option for one of my other cars cheers Joe
  4. Hi Thats one Ive never seen before, I's check all the fuses are good, as one may of popped when been put back in, also check the relays are in correct and in the right slot, easily mixed up have you tried disconnecting the battery since, may reset it if that does not work, ideally you need some one with Jaguar ids/sdd, as that will read every module and hopefully show up the fault cheers Joe
  5. hi not to sure on the F-types, but on other cars with battery management the battery has to be programmed to the car, like on BMW's replacing the battery or disconnecting the battery, can result in the car wont start afterwards until the battery is registered to the car but Ive found out in a emergency, theres a sensor on the negative battery post that monitors battery charge and discharge, if this sensor is disconnected the car will start, but stop/start facility will be disabled, but ideal to get you home or to a garage very handy if the battery need to be charged or replaced, with out a proper garage doing it icarsoft LR V2 can register battries on these might not apply, but works on most stop/start cars cheers Joe
  6. hi YES it fine, can recomend CTEK smart chargers , can be left on all the time, with battery in situ, will keep the battery tip top, I've got one on my S-type R and never had any faults in over 7 years just check the battery vent tube is present, should be a vent pipe on the battery that goes out the back of the car, so any gases produced dont build up in the boot, sometimes left off when a new battery is fitted cheers Joe
  7. Hi yes Ive heard of them, you should be fine there cheers Joe
  8. Ideally you need to plug in with something like Jaguar IDS looking at live data should tell if any sensors are not reading right and what are at fault most sensors will cause limp mode and limit the revs and power, but it should still rev clean with a fault could also be a bad ECU, there at that age where the capacitors are failing and can cause this sort of fault There lots of place that can check these and repair in faulty, might be the first part I would eliminate if its stood, Ive had it a few times on various cars, had the caps replaced and its like new again do you have any fault codes? cheers Joe
  9. hi not too sure on the XKR, but on the S-type R, similar engine and ecu, there quite fussy and only the denso lamda sensors work correct, after market ones generally give lots of faults cheers Joe
  10. hi its usually due at 10 years or 100k, which ever comes first, I'd be try getting it done now by the dealer with the deal, jaguar prices were around £400 to £500 mark, but using genuine parts means its good for another 10 years Indy prices will be cheaper, around £300 to £400 mark, but will be with after market parts like gates, which are only good for 6 years shop around and get prices, but I would try do a deal before you collect the car cheers Joe
  11. hi you can just replace the rubber boots, loads on ebay but its far easier just to swap both rear tie rods dont forget to get the rear tracking checked as this will alter the tracking and will need setting up cheers Joe
  12. hi you need to get it plugged in and see what the fault is could be one of a 1000 things, just pure guess work on here cheers Joe
  13. hi try auto reserve jaguar, they have lots of quality used parts cheers Joe
  14. Hi Dont think there was ever a option of 2 tone from the factory if you look in the x-type brochures there was never any 2 tone ones also may be worth mentioning, now been 2 tone, may effect the insurance, as any paintwork due to a accident would cost considerably more, than a standard car cheers Joe
  15. hi I would change it and flush it, some coolants react with alloys should be OAT red/orange colour its not expensive either, plenty of OAT coolants out there cheers Joe
