Customer Question
Hello there! I have...

Hello there! I have a S type 3.0 that keeps shutting down my car and throwing a DCS code as a fault. Any idea what this could be?

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what's the exact code? And have you tried to reset it?

I don't know the code #. Just words come up on my dash

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Jaguar?

2005 s type 3.0

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

Yes/no.......restarting the vehicle after waiting for a moment or two,then it's fine for a little while,but has been doing it regularly

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Parking brake faults come up in words

HelloSounds like we may have a problem with the electronic throttle system specifically the throttle body. This can cause the vehicle to go into a limp mode and display that warning. It can even be a low voltage issue. To be sure we will need to have the vehicle scanned for the stored fault codes. A Jag factory tool is needed to communicate with the vehicle to read all the stored faults but we can try using a generic OBD II tool available at your local parts store to see if we can read the stored fault codes in the Engine Control Module. The codes will be a P followed by four digits. For example P0121 or P2135.Let me know.
