I have a 1999 xk8. All at once, the stability control light, the ABS light, and the traction control light came on. This has happened several times. I plugged in a code reader and got a single pending code of P1111. I replaced the battery before I used the code reader. What do you think? Jim

Just read the code.
Hello and welcome to justanswer.comDid the engine light also come on? Did the vehicle go into limp mode? Did the warning reset after you turned off your vehicle?
The first time it happened, the engine light did not come on and everything reset. This happened at least one and maybe two other times. The last time it happened, I think the engine light came on and it definitely went into limp mode. This was the only time it went into limp mode and I haven't driven it since, although if I let it idle in my driveway, the lights come on.
I am wondering if we may have more than one problem.
When that warning comes on the ABS control module has detected a fault and stores a fault code. This code can only be read with a Jag factory tool. On your vehicle the control module itself has high failures which require replacement as well as the speed sensor and sensor harness. Of course no parts should be replaced until the faults are red. As far as the cost it will vary but if it is a faulty control module the part is expensive. There are rebuilt modules available. If th e fault code is a C1095 it is usually the module.Your standard brakes will still function normally but you will need to be careful if driving in poor weather conditions as the brakes can lock up and the vehicle can skid.
Another possibility is a fault with the electronic throttle system especially if the engine and/or transmission warning came on when the vehicle goes into limp mode.
