    make sure you check the date it was posted when you get it because as unreliable as the Royal mail is they are normally spot on with the guranteed and saturday delivery stuff, i would reckon the sender didnt post it until today or missed the cut off point on the day they sent it

    I agree, despite taking a huge hit from couriers with enslaved drivers, HM's Post has kept up their standards of delivery services through thick and thin.

    We expect to blame everyone for our miseries Piria, and often it's the messenger not the culprit.

    Chin up mate. It could be snowing a blizzard too!

    Hopefully you get it all done today?

    Fortunately it's 18C here!

    Normal the car is your baby. I always worry when mine goes any where near a car workshop. The last time was in Croatia when I broke down. I was having kittens and in the end I had the car brought back so that I could work on it my self.

    Picked up the car today. They used 15 litres in total.

    Unfortunately he wasn't able to reset the TCM adaptions. It was asking him for a software upgrade which he couldn't do.
    Now my question is do I now need to take it to a Jag specialist to have this reflashed with new software? Or shall I drive it or a while to see if it learns?

    It was a bit lumpy sometimes, bit disappointing. 5-6 was better, 1-2 was better but I had some lumpyness around 3rd-4th which I didn't have before.

    Shall I drive it for a couple of weeks or take it straight to a Jag indy to have it reset?

    p.s the battery was very low as they had left it in neutral with the key in or something so it drained. I'm topping it up now.

    I'd get the upgrade done and the TCM adaptions cleared as well. If they do it right, they have to drive the car after that (with 2 people) and watch as the box re-adapts. (They should be using SDD/IDS.)

    You'd hope not to pay for more than about 30mins work but with 2 people it may cost a bit more than 1/2 hr labour.

    Any good indy can do this but only if they know what they're doing with IDS/SDD. You'd hope they all would but do ask.

    hi
    I have mine done at a local jaguar indy, cost me £80
    he checked the software was up to date which it was and reset the adaptations
    the learn cycle was to drive from 0 to 50mph, nice and steady, then coast to a stop, this had to be repeated 5 times
    worked well for me
    also might be worth putting your battery on charge overnight might help
    if you take you car any where, while they do any diagnostics or updating modules or adaptations reset, they all ways put a heavy duty charger on the battery, as when your using jaguar IDS/SDD, it ask you to turn the ignition on and off many times and can flatten your battery very quickly, if the battery goes low while doing updates to modules it can brick that module quite easy
    I bought a 30 amp 12v psu, I use on mine when I'm using Jaguar IDS/SDD
    cheers

    We did have one issue with the rectangular seal. The older one was not the same as the new one. Luckily we were able to swap the rubber on the unit!Click image for larger version.

    That isn't what is supposed to be done. IDS/SDD has a specific way of doing it.

    It's not vital because the TCM learns all the time but it can learn badly when the proper way is not followed and since the proper way is easy to do it makes sense to do it.

    The coast downs you describe are not for the TCM. They are for the PCM to help it detect misfires.
