Hello and welcome to justanswer.com

 

I assume the parking brake will not disengage when you take the shifter out of park? Is the park brake fault warning displayed on the message center? Can I have the last six digits of your VIN/chassis number? It will be a M then five numbers.

Last six of VIN No - M53437
Fault warning is displayed on message centre
parkbrake does not disengage when I take shifter out of park.
Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 13 years ago
Ok I usually see issues with the park brake motor itself. It's located above the final drive unit. You can try disconnecting the harness which may cause it to disengage but the fault warning will still be on and you will have no park brake. Also look closely at the cables. Sometimes they route themselves under the anti roll bar link instead of above it. This will cause the brake to partially stay engaged. Also make sure that the cables are not binding or broken where they hook onto the caliper. A Jag scan tool will be needed to read the codes from the parking brake module so a trip to the dealer or garage may be necessary.
