Jaguar, S-Type, 2004 will not accelerate after dash sign came on
I was driving at about 70 MPH when I had to break for traffic. The park brake light came on which said, Parkbrake Fault, Engine System Fault, and DSC Not Available". After I slowed down, the car would not accelerate anymore after pressing the gas pedal. I need help. Thanks.

the most likeley cause is the rear pads siezed in the caliper frames, when you apply the electronic park brake it detects incorrect travel and disables the park brake.check that first.the park brake motor is also suspect. you should really get the fault codes out of the parkbrake module to help diagnose yhis issue.
check wiring and connector above rear subframe it can rub through on subframe and short out if poss.check dtc,s in parkbrake module if fault cde motor current excessive before travel reached is logged check fulcrum levers on rear calipers are not siezed and return to stops when released if ok suspect park brake motor fault
Try a reset of the park brake.
Make sure you have your radio code.!!
Disconnect the battery - leave for 10 Min's.
Turn ignition on. If fault has not reset - try the following
Apply foot brake (not too hard)
Apply park-brake switch following instructions on the message center.
Use this method for any park brake fault as most of the time it fixes the minor problems caused by glitches and low battery voltage.
hope this helps good luck
A common fault on these cars, Often caused by low battery voltage. To reset -
Disconnect battery (make sure you have your radio code!) leave for 10 mins. then reconnect and apply foot brake and then park brake as per instructions on message center and the brake will recalibrate itself. Use this method first on any park brake fault - as 95% of the time it fixes them.
Hope this helps - good luck.
Do you mean 'parking brake fault' This message can sometimes appear with low battery causing the electronic park brake to lose its calibration.
To recalibrate it disconnect your battery and leave for 10 Min's. then reconnect and with the ignition on apply the foot brake and whilst keeping applied switch the parking brake on. then release the foot brake turn ignition off - on and the handbrake fault message should be gone and the parking brake should release as you drive off. IMPORTANT - make sure you have you radio code as you will need this after a battery disconnect.
when you replaced the pads did you make sure that the sliders were free if they are partially siezed it gives the the signal to the parkbrake module that the movement is excesive , but also at your model/year there was a prob with the parkbrake motor going bad or the wiring to it chaffed on the rear subframe try to get the fault codes out of the parkbrake module using a obd2 code reader that may have the clue to recalibrate the parkbrake disconnect the battery for 10 mins reconnect apply footbrake with ign. on and work parkbrake on/off 3or4 times
