Does anyone know anything about the error message on the message center says' no DSC available' it flashes amber on message board in my XK8 thanks in advance. Ryan

It could be the brake pedal switch, it often occurs it fails in our kitty. If your car (as mine) is equipped with a cruise control, this could be associated with the msg "cruise control not available" too (or something similar).
In this case you can fix (or change) that switch. The worst is to dismount it... ;-)

Good chance

Does anyone get this message on Dashboard saying the DSC is not available?

DSC stands for Diagnostic Service Code. Does vehicle have problems requiring service?

My 2003 jaguar 3.0 s type has been showing a dsc not available message and restricted performance message in the mornings on my way to work. then it goes off. I have had it checked and they can find...

Sounds like traction lock in the differential is engaged. Try having the oil changed with the friction modifier additive. A bad speed sensor will affect locking and unlocking function. damage to friction plates will occur if not corrected.

2004 Jaguar s type dsc and parking brake along with engine system fault comes on and car goes into limp mode when slowing down or when it rains.

I had the same thing here, I paid lots of money to find out what is the problem, mechanics played with my poor car damaged everything they can to stop it from running, but when I found out that when I changed the battery on my own, with a turkish manufactured battery of 100 A big battery, not even the fault stopped appearing but all the car was boosted in performance, Dsc not available and Park Brake is all related to the level of electricity running the parts of car was screaming back to you, change my battery, all parts of Jaguar runs on electricity, main computer now runs faster, no delay on screen, and now Dsc not available once ignited doesn't appear anymore, remember that once car is reset by battery change, you need to apply brake and boot (step on brak and hold park brak lever up at the same time with pressing computer button on stearing whisk for like 10 sec until you see on screen AVE back again), and bypass radio lock by pressing on the three buttons, mem and the right combination with >>, and you're set

Suddenly entered 'limp home' mode. ENGINE SYSTEM FAULT, DSC NOT AVAILABLE, PARKBRAKE FAULT messages. Reset with ignition of-on, then they all came back after 5 minnutes.


The limp mode is activated when your transmission fluid is overheating.

British cars have their transmission with that safety system.

Check the fuse "transmission", in your fuse box, it might have been blown already.

You coud go to your nearest dealer to check on that and scan your computer for errors.

Hope that helps you out!

Thanks for using Fixya!

DSC and ABS Not avail lights come on after driving.

There is a switch underneath that goes out due to the debris underneath. Either take it to the shop or deal with the lights comming on.
