The apparatus for diagnosing failures and/or malfunctions, in particular for lift doors and/or cars, originally comprises: at least an accelerometric sensor associated with mechanisms for actuating the doors to detect their condition of motion; and/or at least a sensor of acoustic signals associated with mechanisms for actuating the doors to detect their acoustic emissions; and/or at least an optical sensor associated with at least a traction cable of doors and/or cars to detect any unravelling of the cable.
These sensors are preferably miniaturised and can be buried within mechanical and/or structural components of the doors of the cars.
The use of accelerometric sensors to detect the condition of motion of the doors allows to monitor, in particular, the wear of sliding and rotating components of the mechanisms for actuating the doors.
In the preferred embodiment, the sensors of acoustic signals to detect the noisiness of the cinematic mechanisms provide for the use of one or more piezoelectric microphones. The optical sensor preferably comprises at least a transmitter of a laser signal, at least a signal receiver situated opposite to the transmitter relative to the cable to be monitored and at least an optical lens interposed between the transmitter and the receiver and intercepting the laser signal.
Any unravelling of the cable is detected, since the unravelling itself constitutes an obstruction to the propagation of the laser signal from the transmitter to the receiver. In particular, said laser signal is in the form of a luminous blade.
Such an optical sensor has the important advantages of having a high response speed and to be more economical of a traditional vision system, for instance with a television camera.
In the preferred embodiment, the apparatus comprises electronic means for controlling the revolutions per minute of a motor for actuating the car and/or a motor for actuating the mechanisms for opening and closing the doors. In particular, said electronic means are preferably constituted by an encoder associated with the aforesaid motors.
The apparatus is provided with sensors for measuring the electrical voltage that is generated during the transients associated with the closure of electrical contacts of doors and/or of the car.
The data and measurements obtained by the sensors are acquired and processed by automatic processors that compare them with reference parameters.
Said processors are based on an algorithm for recognising a"pattern", according to the known concept of"pattern recognition", through which any event can be described.
Specifically, pattern recognition allows to use both continuous variables and discrete variables, in order to identify a state vector able exhaustively to describe the instantaneous state of the operating condition of the system.
It is possible to use processors based on neural networks, able autonomously to learn and recognise in adaptive fashion new types of failures, without requiring specific calibrations or realignments as a function of new parameters.
The management of processors and sensors, as well as the analysis of any failures can also be conducted remotely, appropriately connecting the apparatus to a computer network with access to the Internet or more simply by means of a modem and the telephone line.
In an alternative embodiment, to enhance the security of the facility it is possible to install a load weighing device on the car, in order to detect the presence of persons inside the car.
The load weighing device is preferably obtained by means of load cell connected to and controlled by the aforesaid processors.
To detect the presence of persons inside the car, it is also possible to use volumetric sensors.
The apparatus of the invention also comprises proximity sensors to measure the distance between the door wing and the threshold and/or between the door wing and the door jamb.

If also the alarm beeps then it is aprobably one of the switch sensors, they are in the doors, in the locks.

    You have to open doors one by one and test keeping the sensor pressed using a screwdriver or similar tool on the switch. You will need somebody to help you in this.

It looks like that your 'closed door' sensor is out of order or the door itself doesn't reach it far enough. put something sticky on the tip of sensor and try again.

Interior lights flicker on and off with warning that doors are open sign on dashboard comes on at same time


Open each door (one at a time) with the car running and parked.
Look for the small contact switch that tells the car the door is open/shut.
See image for location.
Press that switch in firmly and watch the dash to see if the light comes on while you are pressing.
This will tell you which one of the switches is bad.

Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Jaguar X type 02 ABS light decided to come on and stay on, then the engine light joined in. Any ideas? No warning sign on the dashboard computers (as yet). Performance seems unaffected


You need to take it to a parts store or shop and see what the codes are. get the code and description. Then go from there.

have a look at this first,,, if its not that then it could be a door switch sticking on you or the light delay turn off device has gone short circuit on you it has whats called a "tryac" its an electrical switch in the light delay circuit that when it go's pop some times failes in the closed poshion leaving the light on for safty,,,
i hope this has helped you

My 2002 jaguar s type interior lights wont work overhead or door where do i start?


I'm assuming you have checked all the obvious = bulbs/switches/fuse etc?
Can you switch the lights on manually ?
Is it the same if any door opened = no light?
If so =
the light timer/fader control may have failed.
Sorry I can't be more help.
