According to mitchell and alldata, the dcs module may be faulty. I am not 100% sure if it can be flashed (reprogramed) or if it needs to be replaced. You might want to contact the dealer. When it comes to fault codes like that it is really hard to pinpoint problem without hands on diagnostics.

When you says it doesn't crank, do you hear a click and every time you start? This is a sound of the solenoid is activating. It has to engage first so electric current can be carried through the starter to make a crank for an engine to fire. If there is not enough current the starter would not be able to turn a crank, hence you hear only the click. The light on the dash board doesn't need high current to be on. When your battery is weak, it still can provide light on dash board, but not the starter. Your car is high tech enough to detect low current to say dc is not available. You can do the old way by putting a voltmeter across the battery terminals to measure DC voltage. I'm sure that you have less than required 12 V. Just have battery fully charged then it will be OK.
One more thing a battery is a series of individual cells. Sometime the battery is old, some cells are dead causing the battery could not be fully charged even after 24 hours. Then the battery needs to be replaced. Cheers.

Jaguar x type battery dead


What year and engine size is this 2008 jaguar x type?

Are you sure the battery is good, did you have it tested, next if battery is good and you can see bright headlights when you turn them on then i would look at the fuses, if you jump started it you may have blown a fuse.

when you say no ignition what do you mean? are the dash lights coming on when you turn the key?

Is the problem that you have no knd of power to car or every thing lights up but nothing happens when you try to crank engine, or does engine crank (SPIN OVER) but not start up ?

let me know the answers to these questions and i will help you. good day
