Jaguar S-Type. Service manual - part 21




Luggage Compartment



To provide a longer luggage compartment 
area, the backs of the rear seats on most 
models can be folded down in two parts 
to give a 60/40 width split.

Release handles for each seat back are in 
the luggage compartment under the 
parcel shelf.

Pull the selected side handle to release 
the seat back and then fold it onto the 
seat cushion.

Make sure when folding the seat back 
down that the armrest is stowed and that 
there is sufficient clearance between the 
seat back, including the head restraints, 
and the back of the front seat.

When returning the seat back to the 
upright position, make sure that the seat 
belts are routed correctly and are not 
trapped by the seat back. Press the seat 
back firmly and check that it is locked 
securely into place.

Luggage Compartment




A two-door hatch is fitted to the rear seat 
on some models, providing an opening 
between the passenger and luggage 
compartments. This allows space for skis 
or similar objects to be stowed in the 
vehicle. Both doors have a single catch.

The inner door is accessible after folding 
down the armrest. To open the door, pull 
the leather flap forward, press the catch 
(1) downwards and gently lower the door 
on to the armrest.

A bag for retaining the skis can now be 
pulled from the receptacle into the 
passenger compartment, and the strap (3
loosened ready to accept the skis.

The other door is accessible from inside 
the luggage compartment and is opened 
by pushing the catch (2) and lowering the 

Push the skis into the bag from the 
luggage compartment and then secure 
the skis using the strap provided on the 
bag. Clip the strap connector (4) to the 
center rear seat belt buckle.


Warning Indicators


Warning Indicators


Warning indicators are arranged within 
the instrument pack.

There are two warning indicators, one red, 
the other amber, located within the 
tachometer above the message center.

AMBER (1) warning indicator is for 
secondary warnings when the driver must 
take action and then report the fault to a 
Jaguar Dealer at the earliest opportunity.

RED (2) warning indicator is for primary 
warnings. A primary warning must be 
investigated immediately by the driver or 
a Jaguar Dealer.

Other indicators within the instrument 
pack indicate system status; such as blue 
for main beam and green for direction 


A warning indicator check is initiated 
when the ignition is switched ON and 
lasts for three seconds (excepting the 
airbag warning indicator which will remain 
ON for six seconds). If any warning 
indicator remains ON after this period, 
investigate the cause before driving.

When activated, some warning indicators 
have associated messages displayed on 
the message center.

Note: Not all indicators are included in the 
check, for example, high beam 
headlamps or direction indicators.


Low oil pressure (Red)

This illuminates when the 
ignition is switched ON and 
should go out once the engine 

is running.

If the warning indicator remains ON once 
the engine has started, or comes ON 
while driving, loss of oil pressure is 
indicated. STOP the engine immediately 
and investigate the cause.

Caution: Do not restart the engine until 
the cause of loss of oil pressure has 
been identified and rectified.

First check the engine oil level, refer to 
page 189.

Charge indicator (Red)

If the warning indicator stays 
ON when the engine is running 
it indicates that there is either a 

battery voltage fault or a generator fault.

Turn OFF all electrical accessories, radio, 
climate control, rear screen heater etc. 
Try to use the minimum electrical load as 
possible; such as power windows, 
electric sunroof etc.

Report the fault to a Jaguar Dealer.


Warning Indicators



Seat belt (Red)

This warning indicator will 
illuminate for 60 seconds when 
the ignition is turned ON and 

the driver’s seat belt is not fastened.

The indicator should extinguish when the 
driver’s seat belt is fastened.

If the warning indicator stays ON with the 
seat belt fastened, report the fault to a 
Jaguar Dealer. It is safe to drive the 
vehicle with the light ON, provided that 
the seat belt(s) is(are) properly fastened. 
Make sure that all occupants seat belts 
are fastened before driving.

Beltminder (Red)

Beltminder is supplemental to 
the standard seat belt warning 

If the vehicles’ forward speed exceeds 
10 mph (16 km/h) and the seat belt for an 
occupied front seat is not fastened, the 
warning lindicator will flash.

This will continue for 10 seconds and then 
repeat every 30 seconds for five minutes, 
or until the belt is fastened or the vehicle 

Although not advisable, it is possible to 
disable or re-instate the Beltminder 
function. Please see a Jaguar Dealer.

Note: If a heavy object is placed on the 
front passenger seat it may activate the 
Beltminder feature. It is recommended 
that the object be placed in the luggage 

Brake (Red)

Warning indicator for USA 

Warning indicator for Canada 

and Mexico only.

This indicator will illuminate when:
• The ignition is ON and the parkbrake 

is ON.

• and, or the brake fluid is low.
• and, or there is a fault with the 

electronic brake system.

If the indicator is ON with the parkbrake 
NOT applied, low brake fluid or a fault 
with the electronic brake system is 
indicated. In this case, there may be a 
loss of braking assistance in one, or both, 
brake circuits.

If the indicator is ON, with the ABS 
lindicator also ON, then the electronic 
brake system may not function correctly, 
which can impair stability when the 
brakes are applied.



DO NOT drive the vehicle until the fault 
is rectified. Consult a Jaguar Dealer
