    Amber "Engine Malfunction" light came on and stays on. Engine sounds fine, car drives fine. I was advised to remove gas filler cap and screw it back on. Tried this a couple of times to no avail.
    Appreciate any more ideas.

SOURCE: 3.0 jaguar s type wont idle

In addition to Davelee's advice also check around the inlet manifold for leaks. Idle the car and use a detector spray, spray around the manifold as the fault appears - if there is a leak in this area the spray will be dragged into the engine or minimise the leak and the change in engine note/idle smoothness - will be obvious.
The manifold often causes problems due to water leaks affecting hold down bolts, normally to the rear of the engine on V6.

Good luck.

SOURCE: 2003 Jaguar S-Type, programming a key fob

If its a new key fob the only way you can program it is this the factory scan tool, u'll have to take it to a dealership for them to do this and they will charge you .5 hrs for labor.only x-types can be programmed without the jaguar software. Im guessing it will cost you between 40 and 50 bucks to have them program it.

SOURCE: I want to change my oil filter in Jaguar x type

Yes! You will have to remove 4 bolts (15mm Socket) and 6 torx screws (T30). Unclip the front 2 clips and slide the undercover to rear of the car.

Whats wrong with my jaguar x-type 2003 after i start the car then drive off the amber light says cruise control not working,, then it also stall's or hessitates when trying to excellerate or pass another...

I have exactly the same problem on mine-you explained perfectly,i was told i need to change the cruise control computer.I recently had the thermostat changed and the mechanic wiped the engine sign off that was triggered by the cruise control not available sign coming on-when he did this it took about a month for the problem to recur so i think the probelm is definately electrical not mechanical or it would have happened straight after he wiped the engine sensor light.could be air mass sensor could be cruise control computer-when i get some money i'll get it done

You need to get a fault code diagnosis, do it yourself with something like OBD Key or get the local car repair shop to check it for you.

Amber warning lights on.

I have a 2001 xtype and the same lights came on my dash, i had it plugged up to diagnostic and it was down to a split reluctor ring on the rear wheel, this set off the abs light which in turn sets off the management light. Will cost £200, but looks quite easy to repair by self
