Customer Question

After having the 2 front tyres balanced it now has DSC warning on and switch illuminated
JA: How old are the tires? And have they been a problem in the past?
Customer: Brand new tyres( 700km ) and living in Dubai I hoped maybe a new battery would help as previous was 4 1/2 years old. Most only last a bit past 3
JA: What is the model/year of your Jaguar?
Customer: XF 2012 5.0L V8
JA: Are you fixing your XF yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: New battery was my first step. The tyre place I am at is running a diagnostic on it now.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

When does the warning come on? Is it when you first start the vehicle or after driving for a short time? Were any tires replaced?
Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Problem solved. Was a broken wire to the sensor on the LH rear wheel. DSC and ABS all back and functioning.
