    Battery warning

    hi not seen that before and if i check jtis database that code p0622 does not exist you may need to plug in a jaguar diagnostic tool like Jaguar IDS/SDD which will give you a proper fault code generic code readers dont always give the correct fault codes, as some will be jaguar specific you can put you dash in diagnostic mode and see what actual voltage the body control modules is seeing, have a look here Instrument-cluster-diagnostics.php Instrument-cluster-diagnostic info.php this will tell you if the car is seeing the correct voltage, if it not, this will effect charging, as the car controls the output from the alternator, which will effect charging the s-type relies heavy on a descent charging system, if the battery get low is cause lots of problems with modules, especially gearbox ,engine and EPB just hope he fitted the correct alternator as these on the S-type seem special, as they comunicate with the ecu have a read below cheers Joe

    Fault codes!!

    HI P1000 is normal after codes have been cleared heres the description of e P0128 cheers Joe

    Alternator, starter motor wiring loom

    HI unfortuanately that part is not available seperate you have to buy the battery lead that goes from the battery to the front balkhead , not cheap £145 part number XR828127 if you can repair it maybe a cheaper option, would be to fit something like this other option is a second hand one cheers Joe

    Transmission swap

    Hi Yes unfortuanately, the TCM on the 6HP26, is built into the gearbox so swapping the gearbox, will cause loads of problems and the car will not even start the gearbox tcm is networked and talks to most of the modules on the car it would need programing to the car with something like Jaguar IDS/SDD lots of jaguar indy's have it and should be able to program it, problem is once you swap the box your stuck, wont drive or start Serviced my gearbox a few years ago and only used genuines part and oil, ZF lieguard 6, lots of people use cheaper oil and end up with a host of problems after usually the main problem is the mechatronics, which is the valve body in the bottom of the gearbox, this has the tcm built in, you can get service kit which will cure most faults, like a sonnax kit, which replaces all the little pistons and valves in the body , also a set of solenoids whichs controls all the gear selections and clutches, is usually replaced which comes seperate. also if the software is the original build that can cause problems, updates can cure a few issues like banging gears and surging when cold, a adaptation reset will also be required, this clears all the learnt data the gearbox learns and helps the gearbox to drive smooth again cheers Joe.

    Loss of Engine Compression 2002 4.0 Liter

    hi I think early cars suffered with cylinder wash, where piston ring seal failed if the engine was run for very short periods, like a few minutes something to do with cylinder wall lubrication, if it is just pull the plugs on the low side and spray some oil in crank it over the reinstall the plugs just google jaguar 4.0 cylinder wash cheers Joe

    Jaguar xf 4 problems

    hi back doors are most probably stiff motors, spray some wd40 in them and they will free off, its a common problem restricted performance will be just pure guess work, you need to get it plugged in to see what the actual problem is water, it got be going somewhere, have you checked the oil, does it still look ok, not gone milky, also most probably keaking underneath, you wont usually see it on the floor as they have plastic undertrays which will hold the leaking water, if i remember right xf have plastic pipes tha fail, if not that a hose or expansion tank, good garage should be able find and sort it cheers Joe

    Jag X Type Headlights

    hi yes the adjuster on the headlights on S-type and X-type go brittle and break, it very common you can get replacement better adjusters that wont break off ebay you can split the lights and replace them, just look on youtube there a few video's on how to do it I did mine on my S-type cheers Joe

    hi is it the 2.7 tdi theres a lot of service info here the main fuel pump high pressure for the 2.7, is on the back of the engine, it has it own little cam toothed type belt, could also be a dirty filter cheers Joe
  15. hi unless you state you want them changed, they usually don't get done manual for my S-type R says, for the plugs is 100k or 10 years, but thats with genuine oe one's I change mine every couple of years, there no that expensive and really not that hard to do if your plugs have not been done before, its worth checking, the air filter and pollen filter, pollen filter always get forgotten and can get in quite a state always try to use descent seals for the manifold, I always stick to genuine parts, there a common cause of lean fault codes cheers Joe

    Battery storage

    hi you would be better off with a smart charger like a ctek I know you said you have no supply there, but you could extend the cables, so it could reach another building with a supply as longs as its the 12 volts leads and there fused close to the battery if you can keep the car powered up, you less likely to get any issues with faults and electronics prefer to be kept powered up also on the matter of solar chargers there ok, but there not smart, they will put a voltage out, wheather the battery flat or fully charged, so they can also overcharge the battery and boil it dry cheers Joe


    Hi Got my car insured with Footman James, they only insured my S-type R because I was in the JDC, but was by far the best quote I had with the best policy I've been offered there excess was really low and there uk staff and call centre they also do agreed value a well, which was very good this is the second year I've been with them and renewal came through more competive than everone else cheers Joe

  25. hi there fed from different fuses and relays the rear heater and mirrors are common might be worth getting a diagnostic plugged in to see if there are any faults, do the buttons light up, when pressed, do you hear any relays click in the boot area have attachted some pics of the wiring and fuse numbers cheers Joe
