Jag S Type won't start,alarm sounds lights flash fault messages

Car is a 2004 Jaguar S Type 3.0L manual. when turning key speedo & tacho needles go round the dials, the alarm sounds, lights flash and fault messages incl parking brake faulty and rear lights faulty display on dash. I believe this is an intermittent fault as it happened before about 6 months ago - I called out RAC they got it started using jump leads. I have had battery tested it is in good condition.

    Despite battery being tested and found to be OK the problem is caused by a low state of charge - charging battery for several hours cures problem

My 2001 s type jag wont start due alarm


Is the car alarming when opened on the fob? If so you have a control module fault. Try opening the car with the key. as soon as you unlock the door, open it and insert the key in the ignition - this should bypass the remote control. If you still have problems with this method - you will have to take it for repair/replace.

hope this helps. good luck

Jag S-Type -intermitent fault where the remote fob does not work


This does not sound like a fob fault - but a locking control module fault , either in the hardware or software of the unit. Get it checked at a Jaguar dealers. When unlocking using the key - as soon as the door is opened you should hear a chime sounding inside the car - this is a timer counting down to sounding the alarm. If you put your key in the ignition as soon as you open the door the alarm should not go off and the chime should stop. If it does not this again points to a fault in the locking controller.
hope this helps - good luck.
