Thank you for that -- I just needed to be sure as it can affect the way forward.
Ok - as regards XXXXX XXXXX issue - there are known issues with these that sometimes result in the need to replace the EPB module - but there is a proper re calibration procedure that I will give you - Its worth carrying that out before any tests etc are done as that will save time and expense...
The procedure for this is then as follows for you:
Jaguar S-Type Electronic Park Brake (EPB) Re Calibration Procedure 2003 ON . S-TYPE . Issue: On some 2003>on... S TYPE vehicles, a customer may report a concern of premature parking brake pad wear or the brakes binding or the fault light coming on. This condition can result if the electronic park brake (EPB) system is not re-calibrated after the removal of the rear brake callipers to replace the brake pads or at any given time.
1. Reset the EPB module: a. Switch off the ignition. b. Disconnect the battery for 30 seconds. Reconnect the battery. 2. Start the engine. 3. Firmly apply and release the foot brake five times. 4. Confirm that the message “NOT CALIBRATED” or “APPLY FOOT AND PARK BRAKE ” is displayed on the instrument cluster message centre. This indicates that the parking brake is in calibration mode.
5. Lightly press the foot brake pedal. 6. Apply the parking brake by using the EPB switch. 7. Release the parking brake. 8. Release the foot brake. 9. Confirm that the brake warning lamp is no longer illuminated on the instrument pack and that the“NOT CALIBRATED” message is no longer displayed in the message centre. 10. Apply and release the EPB five times to ensure no error is present.
All being well that will cure that - but if not, or it comes back, then a physical check of the brakes for sticking etc and condition will need to be carried out before any other tests are carried out - that then being plug in diagnostic tests .
As regards the "Gearbox Fault" - that is quite a different circuit - The transmission should be physically checked for fluid level and contamination -and if necessary, the fluid changed and flushed...inc filter cleaning. Anything around 80k miles this is often needed. Further- the wiring / connections etc to the transmission TCM and sensors should be checked carefully for any issues. If that does not cure the issue there - then plug in diagnostic tests for the transmission
ie,. TCM - Transmission control module, need to be carried out to further this and correct the issue.
Let me know if you need anything more..
