Why does my rear brakes lock up? When i am driving my rear tires get real hot and they feel like they are dragging.


First we need to know if they are disc or drum brakes. If they are disc brakes, then you have one of two things wrong, either you have a bad caliper and it wont return when you release the brakes, or you have a bad brake hose that connects to the caliper.

Now if you have rear drum brakes either the return springs are shot, or the automatic self adjust is malfunctioning.

Hope this helps.

How do you set up electric hand brake after fitting rear pads?(appears to be binding on).on s type jaguar.


Bulletin from Jaguar :

Electronic Park Brake (EPB)
Re-Calibration Procedure
2003 MY-ON
S-TYPE
M44998-ON

Issue:
On some 2003 MY-on S-TYPE vehicles, a customer may report a concern of premature
parking brake pad wear or the brakes binding. This condition can result if the electronic
park brake (EPB) system is not re-calibrated after the removal of the rear brake callipers
to replace the brake pads.
Action:
Should a customer express concern regarding the above, refer to the calibration
procedure detailed in this bulletin.

1. Reset the EB module:
a. Switch off the ignition.
b. Disconnect the battery for 30 seconds. For additional information, refer to STYPE
Workshop Manual Section 414-01.
c. Reconnect the battery.
2. Start the engine.
3. Firmly apply and release the foot brake five times.
4. Confirm that the message NOT CALIBRATED" or APPLY FOOT AND PARK
BRAKE" is displayed on the instrument cluster message center. This indicates that
the parking brake is in calibration mode.
5. Lightly press the foot brake pedal.
6. Apply the parking brake by using the EB switch.
7. Release the parking brake.
8. Release the foot brake.
9. Confirm that the brake warning lamp is no longer illuminated on the instrument
pack and that the NOT CALIBRATED" message is no longer displayed in the
message center.
10. Apply and release the EPB five times to ensure no error is present.
_____________________________________________________________________________

NB: It is also possible the actuator is bad though.

What size/type battery do you recommend?


I would recommend the Interstate MT-34 for your car. Highly rated by Consumer Reports. I have used this battery in Series 3 XJs for years. They have a good warranty also.

Wont go out of park


Jack up one rear wheel, park brake off, to release the pressure on the drivetrain. This will release the gear shifter. Take care to chock the other wheels before releasing the park brake.
