Jaguar Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
while driving my S type all the electrics go off for 20 seconds and the car shuts down then it all comes back on
in addition the climate control does not work you get heat but no control of the temperature
a display comes on saying the hand brake is broken and you need to go to a service center.
I had the Jaguar people look at it but all they did was unplug the battery and then replug it to "re set" the system which seemd to work but it didn't
Thank you for asking.
I have had NO response thus far from Just Answer until your letter so-- yes a response would be a very good thing.
If it is not possible then please let me know and I will cancel my order.
I do very much appreciate your contact.
All the Best
Thanks for answering.
ALL of the electrics means everything- including - well everything and the engine shuts down - all this happens for maybe 10 seconds then it all comes back on.
I don't know if it is connected but the heating is either on or off with no temperature control as well- it all happened at the same time.
COULD the handbrake release being faulty cause this?
It was the first thing that happened a beeping came on and in the end I had to disconnect the battery and re- code the electrics to get it to stop.
Now I make sure the hand brake is off before driving and on again when stop.
does any of this help Mike?
Mike You are terrific!
Whether it gets fixed or not!
I had it checked at the Jaguar place in Genova Italy not far from my place.
He just disconnected the battery and reconnected it and- for some time- It worked. Since I have been doing the handbrake on and off thing it has been working fine but it has only been a few days thus far.
The heating/Air stopped working when the Jag humans did the on and off thing with the battery. Mike I realise how difficult it must be to even TRY to figure this out in a letter and again I truly thank you- frankly any ideas would be helpful as I will probably need to take it to the Jaguar place in Milan where they have very good mechanics but if I have SOME idea what is going on-- it can only help.
