Re: Chip in paintwork

Looks like it could be 'scrape' damage from a door edge. I don't think it would be warranty covered, so your local 'Chips Away' or similar is required.

Re: 1st service cost

I am in Northampton, New Duston Garage are the approved center near me. They didn't have the sump plug in stock so went to jaguar directly on the day of the service to source one!. Great service! I'd recommend to anyone close enough. Hmmm! Just a little bit too far to travel for a service! :lol:

Re: CTEK Battery Charger

That is rather worrying Mike - I was not sure whether to shut my bonnet completely and fully lock whilst charging, so perhaps that is why mine took 11 hours to charge up. Does anybody know whether it is best to shut all doors etc and fully lock to charge - or is it still ok to leave unlocked while ...

Re: CTEK Battery Charger

Interesting. I went out this afternoon, came back and checked the Batt v at 13.2v. connected the charger again under the bonnet, shut it and double locked up (won't lock unless everything is shut!!!), intending to leave it on all night for a soak charge. Just gone back to it and the charger is now s...

I could do with one of those Dan, where are you? Our independents are bigger robbers than our Main Agent.

Re: CTEK Battery Charger

Which is why it's on charge, til I can clear the diary to be without the car when the Dealer can also attend to it. In the scheme of things going on here, while it works, it works, so lower down the priority list.

Probably worth getting it done sooner rather than later to avoid being stuck somewhere you don't want to be stuck.
It actually still started fine, in fact it didn't sound any different to usual, no sluggish starter or the like.

Re: CTEK Battery Charger

Have you had the Gateway Module updated? If not this may have just not shut the systems down correctly. I haven't charged my new battery for quite some time now and the S/S is still working perfectly even with the aircon on. That's the main one I need to get done. Unfortunately it's low on the curr...

Re: CTEK Battery Charger

Despite what I've said about the matter, mine is currently on charge. I came to it this morning to find "Start Engine, Battery Low" (11.6v). It was used yesterday with no obvious problem except one has to suppose that it didn't shut down properly. It was double locked, the keys in a Faraday pouch, a...

Re: Voice recognition

I haven't used it much, but I concur, it seems to have a mind of its own. I asked for BBC Radio 2 and got "no media selected" then later it switched to Radoi 1 though I'd said 2. I haven't tried it with the phone as I dont make calls when driving. Nothing changes Mike :) :) :) https://www.xeforums....
