    I am having a similar problem however, only my ABS light is coming on.

  • sportsfan12 Jan 04, 2009

    I had the exact same problem yesterday. As I turned the CC off, the red warning light came on and would only drive 10 mph until it shifted hard and would then go about 17 mph. Luckily I was only a couple miles from my house. Turned off and restarted and seems to be working OK now. I do currently have a cylinder 5 misfire (check engine light is on) Have found that it is a bad coil, (changed plugs alredy) but trying to find the original coil style not the newer, thinner coil which doesn't solve the misfire, every cylinder I put the new coil eventually is the only cylinder with the misfire. Any suggestioins on what the CC issue could be?

The car went into "limp home"  when the warning light came, on you only get up to third gear, turning the car off then restarting resetts the control unit, you need to fix the missfire look and listen for aair leak and then a code read,good luck

Yes, headlights still are working properly

    Hi. I'm pretty sure this wasn't limp home mode. With limp home mode, I can get up to freeway speed, but cannot accelerate very fast, and the amber check engine light will blink. This was a solid red exclamation point. I could only get up to about 17 MPH. It was like the cruise control was stuck on, and it wouldn't shift, stepping on the gas pedal wouldn't accelerate the car. Still looking for the older style ignition coil. Jaguar can't order these apparantly. Just wondering if anyone has had a similar problem and what the solution was. Thanks for helping.

Abs and brake lights are on


If both the RED brake light and the ABS light are coming on while you are driving the car, you either have an hydraulic failure or there is a problem with your ABS module that can potentially affect your regular service brakes.

The first thing to do would be to check the fluid level in your brake master cylinder. If it is low, you need to find out WHY. There is always a reason for the fluid level to be low. It is NOT SAFE to just add fluid without correcting the problem that caused the fluid level to be low.

If the fluid level is OK, then you must scan your antilock brake module for fault codes. The antilock brake module controls the antilock light and can affect the RED brake light as well. There are many different possible failures that can cause this. There is NO OTHER WAY to know why the antilock module has turned the light on. You can spin your wheels for days, replace a BUNCH of parts and never find the problem if you do not scan the module first.

ABS Light Lit, Engine Light Lit - Cruise Control Not operating


I would check the ABS sensors on both sides. Those are wires that fit on all wheels to give signal to the ECU for proper functioning of the car. They might just put back the old ones for you . and they should have ben replaces

ABS Light Lit, Engine Light Lit - Cruise Control Not operating


sounds like to me its a abs sensor or reluctor ring problem the 2 main culprits are the front abs sensor link leads one maybe open circuit or the rear driveshaft reluctor is corroded and broken you need to get the fault codes out to help decide which i would check the reluctor rings first if you look carefully at the rings with a torch and probe with a small screwdriver between the rear driveshaft joint and the hub carrier you may find the reluctor ring is adrift

ABS Light and Check Engine Light on, Cruise light flashing


I had this occur on my 2007 Subaru Tribeca. ABS, Traction Control, Check Engine lights were solid, Cruise Control light was blinking and "Er SS" (commonly misread as Er 55) displayed on Trip Odometer. All lights were cleared after 10 or so miles. It appears this is a Speed Sensor (SS) reading error whereby the computer notices an irregularity with the readings taken from the four wheels. Most often it is a temporary and harmless glitch and sometimes a result of debris that is impeding the sensor's reading at one of the wheels.
