  1. Hopefully this will help: Battery reset:- Have radio code to hand BEFORE disconnecting battery. Restart the clock (where fitted) and set it to the correct time. Enter your radio code or if you do not have it then follow backdoor code below The code only works once you have entered the failed code 3 times Enter any code 3 times so that the display shows "PLEASE WAIT" Simultaneously press ">>" "PTY" "A.MEM" should only take 2 or 3 seconds and the radio turns on. You must press the buttons together i.e. at the same time Windows each window 1. NOTE: After the battery has been disconnected it is necessary to initialize each door window motor separately to operate the "one-touch" up function. Operate the window control switch until the door window glass is in the fully closed position, continue to operate the window control switch for a further two seconds. 2. Release the window control switch. 3. Operate the window control switch in the closed position and continue to operate the window control switch for a further two seconds. 4. Operate the window control switch until the door window glass is in the fully open position ("one-touch" down). 5. NOTE: If the door window motor initialization has been completed correctly, when the window control switch is operated, the door window glass should move to the fully closed position ("one-touch" up) automatically. • NOTE: If the door window glass does not fully close automatically ("onetouch" up), repeat the complete procedure. Operate the window control switch once to the close position. 6. Repeat the door window motor initialization for each door window motor. EPB reset 1 Switch off ignition. 2 Disconnect battery for 30 seconds reconnect battery (not required if battery changed). 3 Start the engine. 4 Confirm that the message "NOT CALIBRATED" or "APPLY FOOT AND PARK BRAKE" is displayed on the instrument cluster message centre. This indicates the the parking brake is in calibration mode. 5 Lightly press the foot brake. 6 Apply the parking brake by using the EPB switch. 7 Release the parking brake. 8 Release the foot brake. 9 Confirm that the brake warning lamp is no longer illuminated on the instrument pack and that "NOT CALIBRATED" message is no longer displayed in the message centre. 10 apply and release the EPB 5 times to ensure no error is present. Following reconnection of the battery, the engine should be allowed to idle until it has reached normal operating temperature as the stored idle and drive values contained within the ECM have been lost. Allow the vehicle to idle for a further three minutes. Drive the vehicle at constant speeds of approximately 48 km/h (30 mph), 64 km/h (40 mph), 80 km/h (50 mph), 96 km/h (60 mph) and 112 km/h (70 mph) for three minutes each. This may cause a driveability concern if the procedure is not carried out. This will allow the ECM to relearn idle values. Note: My car is a 57 plate, the radio reset does not work with mine, I phoned my local Jaguar dealer who supplied the code for free.
  2. I've replaced mine, it is easy, when fitting the replacement it seems like it is too long, but it will fit with a bit of persuasion, ie, give it a good thump with your hand to get it to seat properly.

  4. I generally use tapatalk on my phone when out and about, just recently this forum keeps asking me to log in then saying I'm not a member. I have logged on with my laptop and changed my password all to no avail, tapatalk still does not recognize me. Several other forums I use are working properly, even though tapatalk has updated its self several times recently. Anyone shed any light please?
  5. The reset did not work on my 2007 S type either after a battery change, I phoned my local Jaguar dealer with the registration number expecting them to ask for the chasis number as well but they didn't ask for it, they phoned me back after 30 minutes with the correct code. It may be worth a try unless the dealer you used was a genuine Jaguar dealer.

    Just had a quick look on google is this any help? https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjkteHj0MbQAhWHLMAKHVIsB-EQFgg8MAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.cornwallremapexperts.co.uk%2Fjaguar-vehicle-remaps&usg=AFQjCNFYkePlI2gNFOIiXUYTu4NstzJvFQ

    You need to strip the cigar socket and keep the board inside, and connect the 12 volt supply from the socket part to an ignition on source. The output is 5 volts to the micro USB. Make sure the board is well insulated.
  8. Thanks Paul, I thought it was the right grade oil, just wanted independent confirmation really. I can supply them with a calibrated laser thermometer if they need one. Thanks again Dave T
  9. The correct way is to modify the head and have hardened valve seats fitted, then you can use unleaded petrol without additives. I think the timing has to be adjusted as well. For occasional use Castrol valve master or Castrol valve master + work well. (From a colleague who runs a 1300 mini) https://www.google.co.uk/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=1&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjQ15bPl5nQAhVLFMAKHXe-BRAQFghCMAA&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.opieoils.co.uk%2Fp-6519-castrol-valvemaster-plus-lead-replacement-octane-boost-petrol-additive.aspx&usg=AFQjCNGQQbSDEhZ5dSgfq6XChTKB6fIepg&sig2=OmkX0IQe8_0785PP8U2mEw
  10. I have just posted in the S type forum with a link to e bay, I was searching for a way to check the post before submitting and could not see a way to do it. On the Rover 75 forum I frequent there is a 'Review' button which shows the post as it will appear once submitted so spelling and link mistakes can be corrected before finally pressing the 'Submit' button. I know it is just as easy to submit, then check to make sure all is satisfactory and use the edit facility. Just an observation really, would a 'Review' button be possible? Thanks for taking the time to read my ramblings.
  11. I have searched the forum and found a lot of very useful information, just to be certain, is this a suitable item to buy i.e the correct grade oil: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/JAGUAR-S-TYPE-2-7DIESEL-AUTOMATIC-TRANSMISSION-GEARBOX-SUMP-FLUID-C2C38963-7LTRS-/301596789251?hash=item463891ca03:g:DRkAAOSwiwVWSxOD If suitable then I will get my local garage to do the work for me. Any alternatives or recommendations gratefully received, thanks in advance.
  12. Hi Peter, Me too, still got my 2.5 V6 Rover, but scratched the itch for an S type. Welcome by the way.
  13. These are my figures since December 21st last year when I bought the car, copied from my Excel file I keep. Worst was 24MPG, mucky air filter changed and made a big difference, best was 38 MPG going to Cornwall and back. Total Gallons 237.33 Average MPG 31.13 Total miles 7389 Cost/Mile 15.76 Pence per mile Total fuel expense £1,164.53
  14. There is a switch on the left side of the steering column make sure that is set to auto as that sets the drivers seat right back and down low when the key is removed. I inadvertently moved mine to column and found the seat did not move when the key was removed. It also moves the wheel up and in towards the dash if you have set it in a different position.
  15. After the recent flat battery saga, took the car for MOT today, passed ok. Advisories for front brake pads getting low and two tyres getting near wear limits. So two new tyres ordered, having Falken Ziex ZE-914's fitted Tuesday PM. I have a set of them on the Rover 75 and am impressed with them. I asked the tester to check the sills at the rear, fortunately all ok, so this year so far the car has/will cost me about £550 once the new tyres are fitted, four wheel alignment carried out and new pads fitted, just the insurance (£229) 15th of this month, and tax (£290) to pay for by December!!! Quite happy with that really as tyres, pads, tax and insurance are standard running costs. Hopefully set now for another year of happy motoring.
