Question about 2003 Jaguar X-Type
I have a 2003 X type2.5L that just reached 80,000 miles. For the last two weeks it has been telling me all kinds of things. Began with gearbox fault and engine light. Computer scan showed nothing. Then it began saying cruise control fault and engine light came on again. We discovered the battery was bad and replaced it. Then about a week later the engine light came on again and Cruise control fault re-lite. Scan said Mass air flow sensor, but they couldn't explain the warning lights. Now I had alt. cked and it said that it was putting out too much power, around 15 amp instead of the regular 12. They thought it was the main computer going bad. Any ideas??? The car seems to be running ok.
My 2002 x-type did the exact same thing on many occasions and had many repeated trips to the dealership. My "cruse not available" problem was ultimately cased by cracked hoses in the car's vacuum system (which is used in the cruise control and brakes among other things). Have the dealer check the vacuum lines and the breather hose (mine had completely collapsed). Chances are they are leaking and causing your car to "buck" and the cruise to not work. Don't ignore this as it will affect the functionality of your brakes too over the longer term.
I also had the "gearbox fault" with mine at around 75,000 miles. Unfortunately I don't have great news on this one. I took it to the dealer and they had to replace the transmission in the x-type. Luckily for me, I had purchased the extended warranty on the car (due to it's many previous visits to the dealership under the factory warranty) and it was covered.
