    Winter Coming Soon!

    hi steve, I went Saturday, and it was a good turn out, a gentleman turned up in a C TYPE open sports replica. next meet is first Saturday in February.
  4. if this was the problem with my car I would start at ( cigar lighter) testing it for power, with a multimeter. if no power I would then start to trace it back right through the whole electric system using the multimeter, bad earths, continuity tests, current measuring too. until it flagged up with a problem, this is a long process but if done correctly you find the problem. then working my way all through the list of your problems, but a good auto electrician will also help out if you are not capable of carrying out this process. good luck with this issue.....dave.

    2007 S Type 2.7 Code P0404 & Restricted Performance

    I took my EGR valve off and cleaned it, but this has now been some years ago ! I did check if the plunger inside worked when under vacuum, lucky for me ive only had a few little issues which I have managed to fix myself. the last time I had bad smoke and lack of power was my boost pipe had blew off from the intercooler due to a jubilee clip had rusted,

    Diagnostic Code P132B

    this seems as it may be your turbo actuator, if you have a square looking box on top of the turbo? get some to rev the car and check to make sure the arm moves from this box to the turbo itself. as this is a problem when the glow plug light flashs. plus limp mode too. some where in the XTYPE FORUM you should find posts regarding on this. all the best ...dave
  7. peter...well done you ! great to see that you don't mind having a go fixing things, plus it saves loads of money in the long run too, I also have the same code reader, great little machine. enjoy your rewards when driving now that you've done the fix.

    you say that you've just taken delivery of the XF …. so have you got any warranty with this vehicle ? or was it brought private ? makes me wonder that's all ? !

    Reverse parking sensors

    lets hope that it works, and ever thing is straight forward for you, keep us all posted on how it goes..... good luck …. dave.
  10. peter.. the address. auto reserve, unit 6, belfield street, ilkeston. phone 0115 837 2707 when you call them they will see if they have the parts and will let you know. good luck … dave.
  11. if you have internet, type in jaguar breakers in your area and ask them if they have one, but remember to give them as much info so they can see if they have the correct part . I live in Leicestershire but travel up to a jaguar breaker up in Derbyshire, which has been a great help, also they can give you advice too as they do break the cars down.

    X type rear hatch keeps opening

    try this little test ?... try opening the car with key only and see what it does regarding opening of the cars doors ? and check rear glass hatch ? if it seems to work ok after a few tests, then try your remote and see what happens then ! sometimes it can be due to your car battery, or actuators not working correctly, short in the wiring, bad earth connections, start with simple tests first then it will help narrow the problem. but in some cases you will then have to get a multimeter and do a thorough check of the door opening process, which can take a long time due to the electrics, plus its components that are used for the opening of the car system. or get an auto electrician to carry it out who will be able to locate the problem. good luck...… dave

    Reverse parking sensors

    if I could just mention that I would check out the wiring ? as it may be a bad earth contact, short in the circuit, break in a wire, many things route itself showing what it is but trying to trace it is very hard,... I would find a good auto electrician or if you've good at using a multimeter you can check it out yourself.
  14. It all started when we were in the Yorkshire dales, driving around that lovely countryside. when after a good few days I noticed that I was having to really pull up the handbrake as much as possible for it to actually work ? so when we arrived back home, I set too on having a look as to what was going on ! …. On inspection the handbrake was only working on the drives rear side only, /o/s/r. and the near side, n/s/r. was not working at all ? The reason being was near side rear hand brake cable had jammed, not giving me the proper hand brake efficiency. so booked the car in to have the work done, to have new rear hand brake cables both sides fitted with all necessary adjustments to caliper/pistons, plus cable adjustment. …… picked up the old girl, 4hrs later...and it feels 100% with a lot smoother action when pulling on handbrake. cost of work done 170 pounds. now giving me a good piece of mind of a job well done...🤗

    EML Light keeps coming on.

    with the faults that you all are saying, comes across as electrical. I would find a good auto electrician who will go through each fault, and trace what the problem is, as it may be a short in the circuit, bad earth connections, or other cases to which it may be. just a pointer for you guys …….
