Jaguar S-Type. Service manual - part 19




Steering Column


Entry - When the key is next inserted into 
the ignition switch and the door is closed, 
the steering column and seat will return to 
their previous positions. If, however, the 
memorised driver position has been 
changed (using the door MEMORY 
switch or another key transmitter), the 
steering wheel and seat will move to the 
new position.

Notes on entry or exit mode operation
• If the adjustment switch is moved 

away from AUTO whilst the steering 
column is tilted away, the steering 
column will move back to its 
memorised position when the key is 
next inserted into the ignition and 
entry or exit mode is then cancelled.

• If the adjustment switch is moved 

during entry or exit operation, steering 
column movement will stop.

Door Windows



Door Windows


The front and rear door windows are 
electrically operated.

Switches on the driver’s door control all 
door windows.

Passengers are provided with a switch to 
control their door window only.

These switches will only operate the 
windows when the ignition switch is in 
position I or II or for up to ten minutes 
when the ignition switch is moved to 
position 0 (key in or out), so long as the 
driver’s and front passenger’s doors 
remain closed.



• When raising windows make sure 

all occupants are clear.

• When leaving the vehicle take the 

ignition keys to prevent misuse of 
the window switches by remaining 
occupants, especially children.

Raise or lower

To lower a window, press and hold the 
rear of the switch until the desired 
position is reached, then release.

To raise a window, press and hold the 
front of the switch until the desired 
position is reached, then release.

If the switches are held for longer than six 
seconds, for example, when attempting 
to overcome frozen or jammed windows, 
the window drive will be switched off for a 
few seconds to protect the window drive 

One-touch operation

Each window has a one-touch facility 
enabling the occupant to fully open or 
close the window in one quick movement.

Press the switch briefly to close or open 
the window in one movement. Window 
travel can be stopped at any time by 
pressing the switch again.

Immobilising the rear windows

The rear windows can be immobilised 
from the driver’s door controls to prevent 
passengers from operating their 

To immobilise the rear windows, press 
button (1) down to the latched position i.e. 
flush with the surround.

To enable rear window operation, press 
button (1) again so that it is in the raised 
position with the white band showing.

Wind resonance with lowered windows

Due to the sleek exterior of the vehicle, it 
is possible for a resonance, booming 
sound to occur when one or both rear 
windows are open; this is eliminated by 
slightly opening an adjacent front 


Door Windows



Each electrically operated window has an 
anti-trap protection feature. If the upward 
movement of the window detects an 
obstacle, the anti-trap system will 
immediately stop the window closing, 
then move it downwards for a short 



If the battery is disconnected or 
discharged the window anti-trap 
feature is lost. When the battery is 
reconnected or recharged the window 
anti-trap system must be reset.

To reset the electrically operated 
windows anti-trap system
• Fully close the window, hold the 

switch in the close position for two 
seconds and then release the switch. 
Wait for two seconds. Do not open the 

• Again, select the same window to 

close, holding the switch for a further 
two seconds.

• Check to confirm the operation by 

opening the window and then use 
one-touch operation to close the 

• Repeat for the remaining electrically 

operated windows.

To override the anti-trap protection

The anti-trap system will also stop the 
window closing if a blockage or 
resistance occurs e.g. in the window 
guide channels. Typically, this might be 
due to icing in winter, but could also be 
caused by damage or misalignment of the 
guide channels or seals.

To override the anti-trap action:
• After the initial attempt to close the 

window, operate the close switch a 
second time.

• When the window has reversed from 

the blockage, operate the switch 
(within ten seconds) until the window 
stops again (it will not reverse on the 
third attempt).

• Immediately operate the close switch 

again. The window will now move up 
a short distance with increased force 
to override the blockage.

• Repeat the override action until the 

window has closed. Each time the 
window stops, the switch must be 
operated immediately to initiate 
further override action.

If this procedure fails to remove the 
blockage, the anti-trap feature will be lost 
and must be reset (see first column) after 
the blockage has been cleared.

Thermal overload

If the windows are repeatedly opened and 
closed (e.g. by a child), a protection 
system will deactivate window operation 
for a short period to avoid overheating of 
the window motors.






Both door mirrors are adjusted from the 
driver’s door switchpack.

The four-way adjustment button (1
moves the mirrors to the required 
position. The selector switch (2) selects 
the mirror to be moved, left for the 
left-hand side mirror and right for the 
right-hand side mirror. When the selector 
switch is in the center position, 
adjustment to either mirror is inhibited.

Note: The passenger door mirror is 
convex, providing a wider field of vision. 
As a result, objects viewed in the mirror 
are closer than they appear.

Each mirror housing is designed to pivot 
against the vehicle upon impact. To return 
the mirror to its normal position, manually 
reposition the housing until it locks into 

Mirror heating

The door mirrors have heating elements 
which work when the rear screen heater is 
switched ON. The mirror heater will clear 
all ice from the mirror surface.

Caution: Do not use a scraper to 
remove ice from the mirrors as this will 
damage the surface.

Electrochromatic door mirrors

Electrochromatic door mirrors are only 
fitted together with an electrochromatic 
rear view interior mirror. The switches on 
the interior mirror control the 
electrochromatic function for both door 
and interior mirrors (see following 


Interior rear view mirror – 

The interior rear view mirror is of the 
electrochromatic type, and is operated 
automatically when the ignition switch is 
turned on.

The mirror darkens automatically to 
prevent glare from a following vehicle’s 
headlamps, and clears when light levels 
return to normal or when reverse gear is 

Where electrochromatic door mirrors are 
fitted, they are operated automatically in 
conjunction with the interior mirror, when 
the ignition switch is turned on.


Should a mirror assembly become 
detached from the windshield, it must 
be refitted by a Jaguar Dealer.
