Question about Jaguar XJ8

1 Answer

Jaguar xj8 4.0 SE

My car started having an intermitant fault where the abs light came on & also written warning on instrument panel stating No ASC & also Traction control not working. This was apparent in the handling whilst driving. This seems to be constantly this way now. Is there a simple reason for this (ABS sensor or something?) and is it something that I can fix myself? Any info would be greatly appreciated. The car isn't the same. I love her too much & want her back how she used to & should be. Thanks Shaun

Sounds like a abs sensor has gone down or a common problem is the link leads on the front going open circuit it would be helpfull if you get someone to get the fault codes from the abs module, you can check the link leads and the sensors using a ohmmeter i think the sensor resistance should be about 1100 ohms.

SOURCE: mk1 A4 ABS warning light

I have a 2000 Audi A4 and the break wear sensor warning light come on for me too. It does not flash and is orange in color. I have asked the Audi dealer twice about it and they told me it's because the previous owner put aftermarket break pads on it, thus messing up the sensors. I don't know about the ABS warning and other than that I wish you luck on it.

SOURCE: ABS, Traction Control and Park brake light on

If you have abs sensors at the wheels, have them checked. Usually abs & trac control work off these sensors

SOURCE: 2001 S Type Jaguar ABS and Traction Control fault lights on

Hi First I suggest that you get a diagonostic check on ABS system. and then a visual inspection of the brakes. Warped brake rotors do not make noice, but the steering will start to judder when brakes applied at around speeds from 40 up . Possible cause that the vehile picked up something from road such as nylon/ plastic/stone Mike

I have p1000 and c1175 codes


P0128 is a Coolant Thermostat Malfunction

P1000 shows that the fault code has been reset recently (but this code will not bring the warning light on)

C1175 I think is Speed Wheel Sensor LR Input Circuit Failure or Input circuit failure and could be directly related to your ABS fault light indication.

Have replaced ABS module on bmw 525 E39 and ABS now ok, but the ASC lamp will not go off on the dash and fault code 23 (incorrect coding) will not clear from system? Everyone told us the ABS ecu does not...


ABS/ASC module is faulty
CLASSIC ABS FAILURE SYMPTOMS:
- Most of the time, the problem is the ABS module or one of the 4 wheel speed sensors (& sometimes the brake pressure sensor)
- In my 2002 BMW E39 DSC, three orange (warning) cluster display lights lit, ABS, Brake, & DSC
- The 3 warning lights reset when the ignition is turned off, only to repeatedly reappear within minutes of normal driving
- The fault is often intermittent leading you to falsely believe you've resolved the problem (proper diagnosis is important)
- Sometimes the fault only appears when the engine is hot; other times only at speeds over 40 mph
- Carsoft may erroneously show a rear speed sensor failure; but just replacing the speed sensor may make no difference.
- All the work is in correct diagnosis of the problem; parts replacement is trivial (from 1 to six bolts in a few minutes)
- Hence, this BMW E39 ABS 3-warning light DIY will concentrate on understanding and diagnosis of the problem

Can't find in manual "ASC' trouble


ASC is short for "automatic stability control" u will need to have the ABS/Traction control system tested by the dealer for a possiable fault code.

ASC & ABS light on cluster


Check to see if your brake pads and rotors are in good condition. Or if you have replaced the pads yourself and have not reset the wheel sensors this would cause the ABS Antilock Brake System light and the ASC Automatic Stability Control light to stay on as the ASC uses the ABS brakes with computer assistance to control the traction of the car if not fixed it can effect your rev limiter slowing performance

Asc light comes on and engine cuts out


When your ASC light is on this is to let you know your Automatic Stability Control system is switched off press the ASC button Till light is off /ASC is on this works with your rev limiter and should stabilized your idle. If the problem persists have your throttle control unit checked as thi can trigger the ASC light as well and may also activate the ABS light if not fixed
