    ABS light now cleared?

    A couple of weeks ago while driving back from Essex the ABS light came on with the DSC warning. The next time I used the car it was fine and have used it a few times since but the fault has not reappeared. I got myself a fault code reader and no fault codes come up apart from the P1111.

    Are the previous errors stored or do they clear when you re start the car

    Fault codes clear themselves after a certain number of completed drive-cycles. My best guess is that your battery voltage was a bit low and triggered the errors; the charge level was then replenished during your highway run and "Bob's yer uncle"...

    It may also be that you have a failing ABS sensor (one of the rear wheels most likely), or it's having difficulty reading the reluctor ring due to an issue with that. This throws up the same warning lights. Not a very expensive or difficult thing to remedy if it's the sensor....

    If it was a brake (ABS) related fault the code is still there in the ABS module. You can read it if you wish but need a more costly tool.

    The P1111 is from the PCM.

    And P1111 alone means that All is Well!

    Not as such. It means only that all is well with the "OBD monitors".

    You can still have other P, C, B or U codes.

    The ABS one is likely a C code.

    Are you sure?

    This is what I wrote: "And P1111 alone means that All is Well! "

    Ah, you meant: And P1111 alone, means that All is Well!

    But that is not what you posted.

    If you had put: And P1111 with no other codes in any module means that All is Well! then it would be clear to everyone.

    I've yet to see an S-Type like that...

    Heheheh...

    Well that all depends on the eye of the beholder bud.

    And the scan tool in use.

    And on the weather, S Types often only seem to fail when you want to go for a fun drive!

    So I used to go for a paddle on the river Cam instead. As the punts didn't have oars I let my pal puff and punt instead and dangled my can of Fosters in the river to keep it cool.

    Uhhh... Of course I didn't own a Jaguar then.

    It's such an afternoon now, but there's no nearby river. Only the sea. But everyone else is so sleepy they don't want to go.

    No, it's English grammar.
