2008 Jaguar XK ProblemsHigh Brake Pedal Effort Required to Start The Engine
High brake pedal effort may be required to start the engine. Our technicians tell us if the vacuum supply to the brake booster is correct, adjusting the brake light switch and recalibrating the anti-lock brake modulator pressure sensor will generally correct this concern.
Various issues with the door glass can be caused by the glass being out of adjustment, not a faulty window regulator. These issues include a knock, squeak, or binding condition when raising or lowering the door glass. Our technicians tell us that window adjustment should be checked first if any of these symptoms occur.
A creak, click, or squeal type noise may be noted from the front brakes under light brake application. Our technicians tell us that lubing appropriate brake caliper and pad surfaces and installing new front brake pads should correct this concern.
2008 Jaguar XK RecallsTire Pressure Montoring System (TPMS) Warnings May Be Turned Off
On 112 Jaguar XK vehicles, the TPMS warnings were turned off on the instrument cluster. If the TPMS control unit were to send a signal to display a TPMS warning, it would not display on the instrument cluster. Failure to notify the driver of tire deflation is not in compliance with the Motor Vehicle Safety Standard and could lead to tire failure and a crash.
