DSC Fault Message

I get this message on the screen, mostly all the time, but a couple of times it has gone off, but reappears. Today the spinning tire light was flashing and the car lurching, behaving like I was tapping the brake pedal. Then I heard a groaning noise like you get when sliding on ice.
I’ve checked the fuses, all ok.
I know there are sensors in all 4 wheels, and I think there is one in the steering?
Any ideas where I should start to look?

Yes I can tell you where to look.
You need to get the DTCs from the ABS module.
We can all guess and you can replace parts as you go but the module already has a trouble code or two to guide you along a diagnosis.

There are more sensors in the system (like a yaw rate sensor) but guessing can get expensive.

A MY would really help also because the X200 and X202 are really different cars.

MY = model year. It’s a 2000 3.0L V6
X200 is 1999-2002
DTC = diagnostic trouble code
My OBD code reader is showing no codes.
The message went off today, then came back on.
I’m suspecting a bad electrical connection somewhere.
My brother suggested cleaning the wheel sensors, because they pick up iron dust from the brake discs.


Is your code reader an OBD reader or a full diagnostic scanner? In other words, does it read all the modules in the car. I’m surprised that the fault you have has not generated any fault codes.I also have an intermittent DTC failure warning that also brings on the ABS light but my scanner points to a signal failure from one of the ABS sensors. LH rear as it happens.

A generic OBDII powertrain ‘scanner’ will not read Chassis or Body codes.

You will need to find someone with a Jaguar specific code reader that has dealer level software.

Over the years I bought several WDS units and a few IDS VCMs for laptops.
I am running IDS DVD 118.5 on a Dell laptop as well as WDS 43 on a few PTUs.

If you are near North Central Texas I can read your codes in ALL the modules.

There are other diagnostic units that can read Jaguar specific modules so you need to find somebody with one or go to the dealer and ask them to scan all the modules for a complete diagnosis.

Guessing can get expensive. (but the parts guy will LOVE you)
