DSC (dynamic stability control) can affect your brakes and make them apply themselves when not necessary. this system monitors for out of control driving condition and attempts to correct them by using braking. if this system fails, it could constantly feel as if something is wrong and keep the brakes pressed for no reason. first look near the wheel for something that looks like a cogged (gear cutouts) ring very close to the wheel itself and clean the dirt out of it, that might clear the code, if that doesnt work, get the electronics checked out because this problem will cause large amounts of engine, transmission and brake wear and tear.

SOURCE: 2002 jaguar s-type having the same problem

Could be anything. Sometimes the parking brake fault is a sign of low battery voltage as its one of the first items to lose calibration and shows as a fault.
Try a full reset on the operating systems this sometimes clears a persistant bug. Make sure you have your radio code. Disconnect the battery and leave for 20 mins to allow all systems to drain. Reconnect and see if the fault reapears. Have you had the fault memory read for problems, this should be the first thing to check.
Hope this helps - good luck

My jaguar 2001 x type jag has a warning on dashboard that say dsc or dcs failure can i get this warning to go away from dashboard and what is the fault


The DSC light stands for Dynamic Skid Control or in lawmen's terms Traction Control. If the light stays on you have a problem with this system. You will need to have it diagnosed by someone who has the tools and expertise to find the problem. More than likely you are going to have to take it to a Jaguar dealer.

Ihave a 2.5 V6 Jaguar X type 2003 base model. Does it have abs and traction control ? As none of this appears on the instrument panel.


ABS is Standard on the X-Type range.
Jaguar Traction 4 is standard on all 4 wheel drive vehicles. DSC was an optional extra!

2003 Jaguar S-Type, programming a key fob


If its a new key fob the only way you can program it is this the factory scan tool, u'll have to take it to a dealership for them to do this and they will charge you .5 hrs for labor.only x-types can be programmed without the jaguar software. Im guessing it will cost you between 40 and 50 bucks to have them program it.

1 More info needed for disc fault = what are you trying to do to make this disc message appear?

2 The car picture is the dsc switched off - but this message should disappear if the ignition is turned off and on again as the dsc is on by default. If this dsc message keeps reappearing then you may have a fault in braking or sensors that is triggering this message - get it investigated.

DSC fault on display,car stops complete electrical failure.


Hi Jagman

I suspect this could be your battery at fault.

Get it heavy discharge tested first.

Good Luck.
