Codes 51 and 52 are for Front Safety Belt Buckle and Seat Track Position Switches. As X Type belts are 51 and 52, drivers side and passenger side Seat Track Position Sensors (If it's one of your AWD models) or the Driver's Seat in the Diesel (Not one on the Passenger Seat in FWD cars!) They're riveted to the seat track, so not so easy to get out! Might just need the connector cleaning up. That has worked in some cases.

Most likely is not a blown fuse because it is trying to work. Try to find the antenna instead as it maybe block from the signal. You did not say what year is the car.

You need the dealer to hook up a scanner and do a full diagnostic during this loss of power problem. It is not something you can fix at home.

Ok, time for car school. The vehicle is operated by the computer, every electrical concept that is. When the engine is cold, it starts fine because the computer has placed it in "cold start mode", putting more fuel into the engine than normally would until Once the engine is warmed up, a temperature sending unit or temp sensor tells the computer to change to normal run mode. IF said temp sensor is faulty and is not telling the computer to make said change, it stays in cold start mode, still dumping excess fuel in the engine that is now not required, cause it's warmed up. Like keeping the choke closed on older vehicles. Now I think you can answer your own question, when this no start action is happening after warm up and it always starts fine when cold, what's the first thing you check ? Right, the unsuspected temp sensor. Change that and no more start problem. Have a wonderful day. Glad I could be of service.

Those model lifters are quite notorious for clogging up with hardened oil as they ran a bit hot... my suggestion would be to service all your lifters or replace them up to you and make sure all clearances are correct at tappets and valves :)
Good Luck :)

First, go around the car and tighten all the locking mechanisms.
A loose one will report 'door ajar'
This would explain 1 and 2.
3 sounds like the ride level sensor under the rear suspension.
Have you run over anything interesting lately?

Broken or loose gear mechanism between stick and gearbox.
Or broken gearbox change mechanism. Obviously the former is cheaper to repair...

ABS module , control pump etc..... your best bet is to take it to the repair shop , don't want to hurt your self !

2005 Jaguar... | Answered on Sep 06, 2015 | 50 views

which brake warning light is on? the xtype does not have pad wear sensors fitted. so i guess you mean the abs light or the handbrake light.more than likely its the abs light and the common problem is the reluctor rings on one or the other of the rear outer constant velocity joints corroded/ fell off get the fault codes out of the abs module to help.

May be a short in the switch itself

there could be an impact detection engine cut off safety device, this disables the fuel pump of a vehicular accident.
this device is gnarly located in the side panel of the trunk left ore right side it likely will be marked as the device.
a thing to check on for you any way good luck with that
