Hi I have a jaguar xj6 v8 sports model 1998. The abs light stays on all the time also the stability control failiure sign stays on all the time. Could you please tell me how to fix this problem as the mot is due soon and it will fail on this. Thank you Walford.
The most likely root cause of the problem has been determined, and its step by step fix is also detailed if you have the skills to do that yourself. See the excellent detailed website posting by Dan Jensen on the Jag-lovers.org site forums.jag-lovers.org under avsn.php?1169101j41 . He describes what goes wrong in the $2800 ABS control electronic board, and that simply re-soldering a few heavy wires to the board will fix the trouble. But it requires some mechanical work to get that module out, and then some more work to saw the plastic case apart to get to that circuit board. - Best regards - MHH

Re: ABS Light And Stability controll light
ONLY replace the module if the code is a C1095 pump/motor.
If the cose is anything else like a c1155 etc then the problem is elsewhere. You have no way of knowing until you get the codes scanned. C1095 means the module which is the black electronic box next to the abs pump. If it is the c1155/c1154 then it is usually the abs harness. The wire connector that goes from the top of the inner fender(wing) to the abs sensor on the wheel hub.
I have 1999 Jaguar XK8. Had same problem with ABS, traction and stability control. Check EBay and found BBA-REMAN selling they repair services. Place starting bid $35.00 on Jaguar ABS module and won. Free shipping and life time warranty. Just received back and after installation all ABS and brake lights disappear. No more traction control, stability control fail messages on the clock. Only Check Engine light was on. Reset light with chip scanner. Driving car for all day and no more problem. It wasn't big money to take a chance. And now one of my friend with 2000 SAAB has the same problem with ABS. We just found on EBay "Buy it Now" $50.00 repair service on SAAB ABS module. And now its on its way to BBA-REMAN. Keep fingers cross it will work this time again.
The only way to get a accurate decision on what the fault is take your vehicle to a local garage and ask for a diagnostic check this can cost between £30 and £50 if you are lucky it could be a case of just clearing the fault codes on your vehicle
You can go to this website BBA-REMAN.com. They will fix it and it's only $300 I think. I suggest calling them, you have to send them the part, but it's easily accessible and you can still drive your car.

I had this problem with this vehicle due to a damaged ABS sensor on one of the wheels. It got damaged when a wheel bearing went bad. The amber ABS warning symbol also lights. Replacing the sensor cured the problem, something that can be done by an owner. They are expensive new but I got a cheap s/h one on eBay. I currently have this problem again, but this time there is no servo assist on the brakes, a new and different symptom.
i believe they are related to a abs problem. the car uses the abs to control the stability (braking on certain wheels when nessisary) there is probably a malfunction in the abs system that's why the light is on constantly. this would need to be looked at by a professional repair facility.
abs modules work very hard. by the age of your car it seems that the abs module is packing up. the abs system has sensors on all four wheels that figures out braking, stability and control of the car when cornering. these do brake down over time and is part of the wear and tear side of things. you don't need to buy a new one. they do overhaul these things for much cheaper. your car magazines should advertize the fixing of these things or contact a scrapyard for a secondahand one. check if the abs sensors are not faulty and replace them. do not go to the agents, they will rip you off. good luck
