Question about 2000 Jaguar S-Type
Jag S type 3Ltr shows engine fail mode message, but car runs and sounds well and completes 200 mile journeys uneffected
Probably those little Jag gremlins at it again ?
First thing to do is clear the computers memory, which normally does the trick.
Disconnect both battery terminals, switch on the ignition to start 6 times, this wipes the computer memory, and then reconnect the battery, the Positive + first......... then the Negative -----
Start the car and go from there.
Suspect you had a low battery previously, and this tripped the warning.
Get the battery checked, if it is the original, as it is now 8yrs old, and should be replaced.
Good Luck !
A FixYa rating would be appreciated Thank you !
