Question about 2003 Jaguar S-Type
Welcome to Fixya
Usually it is a wheel speed sensor or brake switch that causes the light to come on. When those warning do come on the ABS module and Electronic Park Brake module will store fault codes. These codes will need to be read with a Jag factory scan tool. You can try to reset the system yourself but those warning messages may return.
Disconnect the negative battery cable for 10 minutes. Then reconnect it and start the engine. It will say "Apply park brake" on the message center. Pump the brakes then while holding your foot on the brake pedal pull up on the park brake switch handle. This should reset the brake and may rectify the problem. Make sure that you have your radio code before disconnecting the battery and once reconnected you will have to relearn the windows. To do this press and hold the window switches in the down position and hold them there for 2 seconds. Then press and hold the window switches in the up position until all the windows are closed. Then hold the switch in the up position for another 2 seconds and the auto up should be relearned.
Thank you for using Fixya!

Tips for a great answer:
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
Legend of Abbreviations. ABS Antilock brake system.TCS Traction control system, TCM Transmission control module, SRS Supplemental restraint system, BCM Body control module
