The ''51'' problem on a S Type is caused by a faulty external temperature sensor (7 euros from main dealer) normally located down by the front spoiler in front of the radiator (on a S TYPE ! )
Try your original DVD back in the unit and afterdoing a system reset by disconecting your battery for 10 mins - make sure you have your radio code!
hope this helps - good luck

What I do is park the car uphill. Let it cool, open the cap, start it, and let it warm up until coolant flows in the radiator. Add coolant and let the air burp out until there is good flow with no bubbles coming up.

Do you mean 'parking brake fault' This message can sometimes appear with low battery causing the electronic park brake to lose its calibration.
To recalibrate it disconnect your battery and leave for 10 Min's. then reconnect and with the ignition on apply the foot brake and whilst keeping applied switch the parking brake on. then release the foot brake turn ignition off - on and the handbrake fault message should be gone and the parking brake should release as you drive off.
IMPORTANT - make sure you have you radio code as you will need this after a battery disconnect.

hope this helps - good luck

disconnect the battery and connect it all up and leave battery off overnight. Put the key in the ignition but not turned on. Connect the battery in one bang, wait 15 minutes for the transponder chips in key and ignition lock to be paired by the ECM.

P0745 Pressure Control Solenoid Malfunction. I would get this code cleared and see if it returns and should it return I would take it into a shop and have it investigated a little furter. This Code is a transmission code.

these cars suffer from one problem and that is the computer ,as the O2 sensor heaters run the earth back through a transistor switch in the ECU ,so what i do is run a seperate earth from O2 sensor heater side to chassis or engine this cures the fault so vehicles passes the emmisions but the engine light will stay on .on the O2 sensor are two white wires these are the heater wires ,one will read a positive but no earth continuety ,run a earth and it will work .

The chime usually goes with the door latch. What did you replace? You may have not got the electrical plug seated or a lead has pushed out.

You can use one of the plugs that go into the power point/cigarette lighter. Cut the end off add wire to reach a good 12 volt battery. Plug it in. This should give you power to open the boot with the switch.

u can install a disconnect but when u disconnect the power it clears all settings in vehicle such as radio will have to enter code so anti-theft lock out doesnt occur or have to reset from loc to normal -memory seats -emissions reset which means that problems for inspection if vehicle doesnt cycle thru before one is done -have battery and alternator tested most auto stores do this for free -- if problem only happens during rain check connections around battery/alternator/and fuses for loose or connections that are getting wet

You need to contact the dealer on this, we have no wiring diagrams available.
