Cruise Not Available and Check Engine Light on

Hi i have a 2002 jaguar x-type 2.5 sports model with navigation. (Dont know if the navigation has anything to do with the problem). i turned my car on today in the morning inside a heated garage and the car was giving a rough idle and the cruise not available sigh came on with in the dash and the check engine light came on after a few minutes later. i let the car warm up and drove it and then the cruise not available went away but the check engine light stayed. i drove for 4 -5 miles and turned the car off and came back and turned it on the check engine was still on but no cruise not available in the dash. thinking the check engine needs to be resetted or so i drove and about 1 mile later the no cruise available came back. i tested this a few times and it keep occuring in a on off on off cycle with the check engine light always on never going away. Please how do i solve this problem i hope it is not damaging the car in any way.

    Engine light is on, cruise control unavailable comes on and stays on once I go above a certain speed. Took it to Ray Catena TWICE and they cant figure out the problem. Problem is, car WILL NOT pass inspection as long as engine light is on. Is this not a manufacturer's defect? I see way too many people having the same problem and to be told that they don't know what is causing it is totally unacceptable.

    ok guys,

    I am a jaguar tech and this is what i have seen with this problem. When a certain code comes on, causing the check engine light to come on, the engine control module (ecu) will also flip on the "no cruise available light" as well. Now this doenst mean that that the check engine light has to do with the cruise directly!!

    For example i have a x-type, like yours, that had a check engine light on with 2 lean codes stored in the ecu. Also, the cruise unavailable light was on also. When I fixed the problem for the two lean codes the cruise light went away as well.

    In order for me to completely help you guys i need to know what code is stored in the ecu. you can do to auto zone and they will scan it for free, its a general scan but it may be enough to figure out the problem, or at least make a plan of attack.

Is it ok to use RON 93 unleaded fuel for 2002 model X-type Jaguar


The Research Octane Number or RON of 93 should be fine, anything higher such as LPG, ethanol is 110 and that is considered safe for regular cars with conversions.

Hope this helps

My jaguar x type sport check engine light is on and the message center reads cruise control not available but only does it occassionally

Thanks to all who wrote about the PVC hose. I am the original owner of a 2002 X-Type 3.0 with automatic. This weekend the engine light went on with a warning message that the cruise control is unavailable. The cruise worked and the only symptom I noticed was a slight lurching when slowing to a stop. I found these posts about the PVC hose and checked out mine to find there was a 4 inch **** in this hose. I bought a replacement from the dealer (Part No. C2540863 - £6) and noticed the new one has a waffle texture instead of smooth and feels stiffer. It also has clamps on each end which were missing on the original. This fixed the problem! It drives smoother and there is absolutely no lurching as I come to a stop.

The work involved is to take off the 3 screws and the oil filler cap which holds the plastic cover over the engine. Then remove the old hose by hand, reinstall the new hose with the 2 crimp style clamps. This hose is about 10 inches long and 1 inch in diameter going from the exhaust manifold to the engine, entering the engine right next to the rightmost screw anchor holding the plastic cover. Replace plastic cover and you are done (about 10 minutes). I recommend this as good preventive maintenance for anyone who still has the old smooth PVC hose.

Message center says cruise not available, cruise works but check engine light came on.

I had double trouble with mine doing this. Had to have Tranmission rebuild and engine had vacum leaks. Hope yours is vacum leaks.
