2005 S-Type: release..manually..Reverse or Drive..parking brake…

Customer Question
2005 S-Type. When starting...
2005 S-Type. When starting car, "Park Brake Fault" appears and does not release manually or even when the car is put into Reverse or Drive. Switching the car off and on a few times releases the parking brake eventually. At that time, there are a few beeping sounds and "ABS Fault" flashes once on the screen and then disappears. Car then drives normally.

Need advice on likely cause and possible remedy.

Hello and welcome ot justanswer.com

 

The problem may be a faulty electronic parking brake module. This will need to be checked with a Jaguar service tool. I recommend that you try to reset the brake first. DIsconnect the negative battery cable for 10 minutes. Then reconnect it and start the engine. It will say "Apply park brake" on the messgae center. Pump the brakes then while holding your foot on the brake pedal pull up on the park brake switch handle. This should reset the brake and may rectify the problem.

Thanks Richard. By disconnecting the battery cable, other than the park brake, wouldn't that require some/all other functions in the car to be reset as well? Not sure how many other items will need resetting as well and what I'll need to do for those?

 

Regards,

Clueless!

You will need to reset the auto up windows and if you have a security radio you will need the code. To reset the windows press and hold the window down switch til it is fully lowered and you hear a faint click. Then press and hold the switch in the up direction til you hear this same click. Do this for all the windows and they should be set. Do this with the engine running so you have charging system voltage.

Richard - thank you for your replies. I am accepting your response. I could not do that earlier as I was not in town all of Dec.

 

Just one additional query. Although I reset the brake by disconnecting the battery, the same fault continues to appear. Could low battery power be a cause for this error message? Jaguar Service had asked me to change the battery during the last service but I didn't since I had never had trouble starting the car.

 

Thanks,

Omer
