Brakes may be sticking a bit. Do you have 4-wheel disk or drums in the back? This is more common in drum brakes that are not self-adjusting properly. If you have drum brakes, check to see if the drums are snug to the hub. If not, adjust to snug. If you have disk, check the parking brake adjustment (does it pull up far to lock?). If you need instructions, let me know and I'll try to look them up for you.

sounds like you might have some loose wires from the removal of your stereo, which happen to be grounding out and shorting your battery. wouldnt take long to drain your battery if this is the case. your brakes seems to not be working because after the motor loses power and dies your motors no longer is generating any vacuum, which your brakes rely heavily upon for extra brake booster. i would suggest looking for an exposed wire somewhere and tape it w/ electrical tape. hope this helps!

Restricted Performance light and lag in acceleration.

more than likely you need an ignition coil or two. s type jags chew coils regularly if you know what I mean!

After bleeding the brakes, the brakes have locked on.

Front or rear? Rear disc brakes too?

This could be master cylinder not fully releasing. Is pedal fully coming back to the stop? It needs to so it uncovers the ports to let the pressure release.
Also, try loosening the bleeder screws just a little to see if the calipers release.

Disc brake pads barely release by design, maybe just a few thousandths of an inchgap.

Forward push while stopping Jaguar S-Type 2005 model.

This is sometimes called the lurch, disconnect the battery for 30 mins to re-set the "memory" in the gearbox, this should solve your problem, the gearbox will re-learn your driving style. Make sure you have your radio code before you disconnect.

Problems with the DCS light on my 2005 Jaguar X-Type Sport

All the DSC does is senses the tire spinning and compensates, unless your tires are getting poor traction your tire size should not affect its operation, I have an S Type sport package in which I added larger wheels and tires and have not had any adverse affects. I would suggest having your vehicle serviced by jag and maybe even having your stability control unit replaced if they deem necessary. Hope this helps

NO, only replace rotors if they are warped, or severely gouged.

Have a 95 Bronco--LOUD thud noise when I use the brakes

how long has it been since the breaks themselves were replaced?
what it seems like is there is either a break locking problem, or possibly the axle could be damaged.
not much but my suggestion would be to take it to get a diagnostics check on the full brono and see if an auto shop themselves can figure it out.
