Check the sensors , you still might have bad one in the group which will effect the full function of the sensors.

If sensors are good , then you need to check the position of the sensors and set up correctly as if one of the sensors is out of alignment , it will cause this problem.

If not , the you need to check the electrical wiring for the sensors

the water heater control valves are front right down low behind the radiator and are electricaly operated ,the AC pipe that runs under the engine but above the sub frame could be corroded out as this is a common fault with these cars ,also the electrical solonoids that shut off the heaters can corrode up as well but i have known them to stick open.

2005 Jaguar... | Answered on Aug 14, 2017 | 39 views

the most likely cause is the dual control valve in the cooling system and/or the wiring to it. you can change the settings back to the origional settings using the touch screen or the dash switches . @ your model/year there was a factory fix which was about changing the servo motors on the climate control unit for that problem.you may need to take to a jag dealer. but first make sure the outside temp is reading ok on the dispay that can also cause that prob if its gone faulty

Sounds like bad window regulator.
If you get lucky you can spray silicone in the window run channels. That won't fix regulator but it could help a weak motor move it up.
If you broke the side view mirror off and caused this then your channel is bent and needs straightened

Check the ajar switch is working ok. This is by the latch on the boot lid to the left under a rubber cone cover. Whilst the boot lid is open push the switch fully in and see if the light is still on then you have a switch fault

2005 Jaguar... | Answered on Sep 26, 2016 | 400 views

it could be one of several things causing the problem,
faulty thermostat
faulty water pump
blocked radiator
blown head gasket
cracked head
take the car to a radiator repairer and have the cooling system checked, they will tell you what the problem is in a short period of time

With the car started press on the brake pedal. Listen carefully for a "Click" sound coming from under the gear shift cover. If you do not hear one you will need to test the brake pedal switch, if you hear a click then most likely the lock somehow became disconnected from the solenoid. Remove the shifter cover and the assemble is can be seen for troubleshooting and repair.

You have a fuel cut off safety switch . Verify it is on and if it is, go to your relays and fuses.

2005 Jaguar... | Answered on Feb 16, 2016 | 273 views

First off clean and lubricate the tracks the sun roof operates on, using a good quality lubricant with Teflon in it.

The find the fuse and relay for it, remove the fuse, blow out the receptacle and clean the contacts on the fuse w/a wire brush before re-installing..do the same for the relay, often a bit of corrosion on these parts allows it to operate partially.

I am assuming an automatic transmission, 2nd gear is the default gear when there is a mechanical or electrical issue with the transmission. If the check engine lite is on, this would also verify that. If that's the case only a dealer or certified Jaguar shop can take care of this.

Faulty fuel injector or injector wiring loom, faulty o2 sensor or wiring loom.

you are going to need to get twelve volts to your system somehow,your frame and engine are the ground or"neg",,now you need to find the big thick red wire coming from the trunk and going to your engine compartment,you will need to hook up another battery with jumper cables or a battery pack,red to red black to black or a bolt on your motor.then try your key

2005 Jaguar... | Answered on May 06, 2015 | 60 views

Try a reset of the park brake.
Make sure you have your radio code.!!
Disconnect the battery - leave for 10 Min's.
Turn ignition on. If fault has not reset - try the following
Apply foot brake (not too hard)
Apply park-brake switch following instructions on the message center.

Use this method for any park brake fault as most of the time it fixes the minor problems caused by glitches and low battery voltage.
hope this helps good luck

Congrats on having a really, really nice car there, Erick!

You'll likely always have either P1000 or P1111 stored in the OBDII (On-Board Diagnostic system, version II). If you have P1111 then you should be happy. It's a good code.

The P1111 code indicates that all engine tests have completed by the computer, and everything is okay. The reason it is there is because the car has to be driven for a while before all tests are complete after a DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Code) reset or battery reconnection.

(P1000 means those same tests have not yet been completed, it does not indicated a problem, just the fact the 'puter has a bit more work to do - for whatever reason)

The P0172 code is a different beast, however. It can mean the following:
Restricted air filter
Leaking fuel injector(s)
IP Sensor fault (high fuel pressure)
EFT Sensor fault (high fuel temperature)
MAF Sensor fault (high intake air flow)
HO2 Sensor(s) (1/1, 1/2) harness wiring
condition fault
ECM receiving incorrect signal from one or
more of the following components:
ECT Sensor, MAF Sensor, IAT Sensor,
IP Sensor, EFT Sensor, TP Sensor

1) Change out the air filter, and use the code reader to clear the code. The code is telling you one of the "banks" (sides of the engine) are running a hair rich, that's all. An air filter that is a bit restricted can cause this.

(While you are at it, change the oil and filter, too - yours is a World Class Automobile, treat it as such and keep it fully maintained, Erick! I am writing this to you on a Saturday. Go outside and hand-wash that pretty baby, today!)

If the code returns promptly...

...the usual reason for the code is crud - usually invisible crud - on the MAF sensor, an easy fix. If everything else about your car's performance seems okay, and this code re-appears after clearing it from the OBDII a few times, then and only then take the step of cleaning the MAF (Mass Air-Flow Sensor).

(if you Google the price of a replacement MAF Sensor for your car, you'll understand why this is not the very first thing you want to do)

The MAF Sensor is the honey-comb thingie after the air filter, and before the engine. It does a p**p-load of things: it tells your Jag's MAIN computer (your S-Type has 6 or 8 different computers on-board!) what the air temperature, oxygen content, humidity, and likely a few other things, too, are - many, many times each and every second you are driving down the road.

Go to a NAPA Auto Parts store (or other "Quality" auto parts store), and buy the single BEST brand of MAF Sensor Spray Cleaner they have. Do NOT "skimp" and buy a WalMart or similar brand - they are NOT all created equal.


Disconnect, unplug and pull the MAF Sensor out from "under the bonnet". Make sure you use a nice blanket or something to lean on and rest against while working on it (excuse me, it's an English Motorcar, so I should say "whilst working on it"), to make sure you do not scratch the paint of your Jag.

Take the MAF Sensor across the yard, or out of the garage (anywhere, far far away from the car) and spray the cleaner through it, following the directions on the can to the letter.

(if you accidentally mist the spray onto the car, you will screw up the paint job something royal. You do NOT want to do that: everyone knows, if you mess with the paint on a Jag, God Himself will not allow you into Heaven)

Just clear the code, Erick.

If it comes back, or if you have"drive-ability" problems, then you can deal with the MAF Sensor. Don't get too terribly hung-up when your Jag throws you a code, they are want to do so.

(kitties are temperamental beasts, all)

Happy Motoring!

Post Post Script - one of these days, your Jag will likely jump into "limp mode", scare the heck outta you, and you will get a screaming number of OBDII codes. It will usually happen when you "need" the car most (in traffic), as you accelerate. It is a "false call": it will be a simple vacuum leak. Pull over, turn the car off, and restart it (yes, you can do it 'whilst' rolling, but the steering wheel will lock on you for a moment). If you can readily find the leak, a bit of your girlfriend's bubblegum will fix it!

Fix(ed)Ya !!!
