Customer Question

Customer: Hi Richard,
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: I have a 2003 Jaguar S-typr R. When I get into the car and put key in ignition or stop car and take key out of ignition. I get about 10 seconds of beeping and the red brake icon comes on. This started just before Xmas. Is a parking brake or brake system warning. I didn't see anything in users manual. Thanks, Mick

Yes it does sound like the parking brake fault warning since the brake will automatically apply when you take the key out. It can also be a false warning from the shifter. Right after shutting off the vehicle try moving the shifter off park. You should hear a warning. If this is the exact warning you hear then it is most likely a shifter. If the warning is higher pitched then it is the parking brake and we may have a problem with the actuator or module. Also inspect the parking brake cables and caliper as that is the small caliper on the rear brakes. Let me know.
