Question about 2001 Jaguar XJ8

1 Answer

Hand brake and boot catch

The warning light is constantly on saying parking brake fault. The brake is working, but I still get the warning. This is affecting the central locking and now the boot won't open but I get a warning saying it is open.

Is this the computer or fuses and relays

If you open your boot at the bottom in the middle of boot and look for excess wearing on the catch as this has to be cvlosed for all of the central locking system to be working. if this is not the case and there are no visdible scratches on the actual pin then you will find it to be a computer fault and would recommend you go to dealer.

Red Handbrake warning saying Apply handbrake and not starting


I familiar with this setup, but the car should start with the parking brake on. I could see it warning you if you try to move it with brake set, or maybe even shutting off engine then, but I would never think it would prevent engine from starting. Is this a stick shift or automatic. Make sure transmission is in neutral or park, clutch depressed.

Why doesn't the eletronic parking brake work?


Try a reset of the park brake.
Make sure you have your radio code.!!
Disconnect the battery - leave for 10 Min's.
Reconnect.
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

1996 Ford Windstar 3.8L, Brake light is on-brakes work fine


Abs light on means the ABS sytem has a fault.
You can determine what is wrong by counting the flashes (they say) and then put the data in on the web.

IE abs, windstar, failure, 3 flashes.

The brake light on is most likely picking up on uneven brake pressure, or a failing master cylinder/
You may not feel any difference yet, give it a little time, feel for a pedal fade at a light.

Brake warning lamp on steady only when engine running. Brake fluid level is ok. General brake operation is normal. When park brake set, brake warning lamp is brighter. Is it possible that the rear brake...


No.
It might be in the switch for the parking brake. Try to release it a little more with your hands. It's either in the parking brake system or the regular brake system. Anything ABS has it's own warning light. Have it checked by a tech; it's a safety item, ok?

Parking brake light on 2003 1.5 dci


If the hand brake goes on and off normally and the car behaves properly without any brake binding, I think the best shot is to bring it to the Renault dealer as it might be a fault that they already know of and who knows may be there is a factory recall on these and you could end up paying peanuts for the fix..
Cheers and good luck

Brake Problem on 2004 VW Passat


You have to get CV Boots replaced, this happens because they split. What happen was something got stuck inside the axel where the little boots is held on and split that little piece of rubber (its easy to do). As a result, fluid leaks and and spashes on the back tires so you never know it happens. When you make turns the car will make a clicking noise. You can add fluid but, it will continue to leak out if those boots are split so, you have to replace the boots. I had to replace the boots and axel because the boots come on the axel. Its an expensive project. Boots, axel and labor $500 starting if you go through the dealer. Also, if you have an extended warranty they won't cover it because there is no time frame when these boots split it just something that can happen. Honestly, they know this is something common especially if you drive through snow.
