Zero Point Calibration Using Jumper wire

The following manual procedure may be used in the cases where a Diagnostic Tester is
not available.

While performing the Zero Point Calibration, do NOT tilt, move, or shake the vehicle.
The vehicle must remain in a stationary condition throughout the entire process.
Be sure to perform the procedure on a level surface with an inclination of less than 1%.

1. If the vehicle is equipped with A/T, ensure that the shift lever is in the "P" range and
the parking brake is applied. If the vehicle is equipped with a M/T, ensure that the
parking brake is applied.
2. Turn the ignition switch ON.
3. Using the SST, repeat a cycle of short and open between terminals Ts and CG of
DLC3 4 times or more within 8 seconds (refer to the specific vehicle EWD for TS and
CG pin location in the DLC3).
4. Verify that the VSC indicator light is lit indicating the recorded zero point is erased.
5. Turn the ignition switch OFF.
6. Be sure the terminals Ts and CG of DLC3 are disconnected.
7. Turn the ignition switch ON.
8. Check that the VSC warning light goes off about 15 seconds after the ignition switch
is turned ON.
9. After ensuring that the VSC warning light remains OFF for 2 seconds, turn the ignition
switch OFF.
10. Connect terminals Ts and CG of DLC3 using the SST.
11. Turn the ignition switch ON.
12. After turning the ignition switch ON, check that the VSC warning light is lit for about
4 seconds and then starts quick blinking at 0.13 second intervals.
13. After ensuring the blinking of the VSC warning light for 2 seconds, turn the ignition
switch OFF.
14. Remove the SST from terminals Ts and CG of DLC3.
15. Drive the vehicle for at least 5 minutes to confirm Zero Point Calibration is complete.

first check all your fuses to make sure none are blown. if they are all good the shift interlock actuator on the brake pedal may have gone bad. it operates the brake lights and releases the lock so you can move the shifter from park. hope this helps

How do you set up electric hand brake after fitting rear pads?(appears to be binding on).on s type jaguar.

Bulletin from Jaguar :

Electronic Park Brake (EPB)
Re-Calibration Procedure
2003 MY-ON

On some 2003 MY-on S-TYPE vehicles, a customer may report a concern of premature
parking brake pad wear or the brakes binding. This condition can result if the electronic
park brake (EPB) system is not re-calibrated after the removal of the rear brake callipers
to replace the brake pads.
Should a customer express concern regarding the above, refer to the calibration
procedure detailed in this bulletin.

1. Reset the EB module:
a. Switch off the ignition.
b. Disconnect the battery for 30 seconds. For additional information, refer to STYPE
Workshop Manual Section 414-01.
c. Reconnect the battery.
2. Start the engine.
3. Firmly apply and release the foot brake five times.
4. Confirm that the message NOT CALIBRATED" or APPLY FOOT AND PARK
BRAKE" is displayed on the instrument cluster message center. This indicates that
the parking brake is in calibration mode.
5. Lightly press the foot brake pedal.
6. Apply the parking brake by using the EB switch.
7. Release the parking brake.
8. Release the foot brake.
9. Confirm that the brake warning lamp is no longer illuminated on the instrument
pack and that the NOT CALIBRATED" message is no longer displayed in the
message center.
10. Apply and release the EPB five times to ensure no error is present.

NB: It is also possible the actuator is bad though.

The brake light is on. Of course this means I need brakes. My concern is that it has never gone on before in the 8 years that I have owned the jeep. I repaired the back brakes last year and the light...

Eight years is a long time and little wonder that your Jeep needs your attention. Which brake light are you talking of? The external brake lights that warn others that you are slowing down or the internal one that tells you that your brakes are on. The parking brakes. For external lights there is a switch that gets presses/released when you press the brake pedal. If this switch malfunctions that can let the brake light remain on as long as the Jeep has its ignition on. So, please locate, check and replace this switch. For parking brakes too there is a switch that gets released when you release the parking brakes. The remedy is the same.

Won't shift out of park \

There are few things that has to be checked 1)Transmission Lockout switch on the brake pedal 2) If transmission lockout switch checked out OK , then the solenoid on the gear lever that is activated by that switch has to be checked. 3)Step on the brake pedal and see if the brake lights come on. If they don't, check the brake light fuse to see if it is blown.
If they the brake lights come on, then turn the key to where the steering wheel unlocks, but no lights come on. Set the park brake and see if the shifter will shift into neutral.
If the shifter moves out of park, then you will need to check the shift interlock actuator as its not getting power when the brake pedal is depressed.
Thanks. you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.
