  1. hi most probably no fault with aircon if its holding gas most coomon fault with s-types is the dccv, dual coolant control valve, its a water coolant valve that controls hot coolant to both passenger and drivers side these fail with age a pass, allowing hot water in to the heater matrix and giving hot air, over powering the air con, try it when the engine cold, put heater on full cold and if it blows cold air con ok, if it get warm or hot when engine hotter is most probably dccv also when dccv fails it can also take out the cllimate control module, usually blows a track on the pcb which can be easily repaired cheers Joe
  2. do you have any pics paul is it a after market audio device
  3. hi small petrol turbo charged cars, low immisions and high output technolygy not quite there for electric cheers Joe
  4. Hi paul its usually the dccv starting to fail and passing hot water drivers and passenger side are seperate valves are they both cold, when the engine is cold, if so, must be dccv passing very common s-type fault cheers Joe
  5. hi paul do you have a pic is it the black plastic one, phone/bluetooth cheers Joe
  6. hi There not oe, there after market stick on, ebay cheapies I'd take them off and polish it, hopefully there not hiding any damage if you want more stick on one, ebay cheers Joe
  7. hi would still recomend not using it without a descent battery charger connected especially if it a diesel, these cars are so sensative to low batteries cheers Joe
  8. hi as above just reflectors only usa cars the reflectors light up, some people add the bulbholders to make them light up, you would just come off the side lights 12v feed cheers Joe
  9. Hi Best way is to get it plugged in to Jaguar IDS/SDD it will give you faults it will also tell you whats triggering the alarm the alarm going off with out opening the door is also standard, it active arming and can be turned off in dealer options sounds like you have a fault on the security system/alarm and the alarm is activating on it own on IDS/SDD software there country selection and options for the alarm, you need to get these checked, i'm sure you can even disable the alarm in dealer options as well cheers Joe
  10. Hi This exact same topic has popped up somewhere else, no matter which forum you go to you will get the same answers I've used IDS/SDD for years to check and clear codes and to monitor live engine data and never had any issues but I am using a dedicated laptop, not using a modern laptop running virtual software running win xp pro, this option will give you nothing but trouble and you will end up brcking loads of modules, because these virtual softwares are so unstable. also I've not used IDS/SDD with out have a descent battery charger connected, mines 30 Amps and that really a mininum, Jaguar use a similar setup, because when your diagnosing, programing or calibrating, it asks you to cycle the ignition many times and will flatten the battery really quick, low battery voltage causes modules to go into fault and if you programing, calibrating or even clearing fault codes, if it goes into fault mid writing will corrupt the module, depending what its doing, the modules may not be recoverable, damaged for good. looks like you have been lucky if you got them working again also found version V130 the most reliable and covers the most on S-types cheers Joe
  11. hi low battery, put battery on charge overnight and try it then low battery on these causes all manner of problems if your only doing 3 miles on a diesel, it wont put back into the battery, what youve taken out on first startup I would personaly get a smart charger like a ctek and keep it on charge when not in use, it will keep your battery tip top and you wont get any more issues cheers Joe
  12. hi it wont work because the drivers seat module needs coding/programing to the car you could try the old seat module on the new seat, but the old seat module will also need calibrating, before the seat memories will work and may do strange things you need some one with Jaguar IDS/SDD to program the module all the the modules on the s-type need programing, coding and some calibrating as well as all the modules talk to each through can bus, some used modules are plug and play, because they have been previously programed, but the seat module needs coding to the car passenger seat works fine as is not can bus controled, its all hard wired to the seat switches, drivers seat is can bus controled, so it comunicates with lots of modules like imobilser, each key has two memories, when the imobiliser sees a key, it looks for a memory and moves the seat to that position, if the column switch is in auto cheers Joe
  13. hi the uk registration number does not exist you might be better off trying to use the vin number cheers joe
  14. hi think there are a few different bulbs fitted there either H3 or HB3 there might more type that, mine were HB3 best way is to have a look, you have to lower the front bumper cover cheers Joe
  15. hi usually find the servo fails because it has oil inside it if a non return valve is fitted, like on every other petrol version, it wont fail again this only effects the diesels, not very often one fails on a petrol the rubber gromment fail is similar, its usually oil contamination that makes the rubber swell and split cheers Joe
