I never use the parking break as I am very unhappy of clamping the pads on a very hot disc. Several reports of distorting discs around.
On the diagnostics not sure that the dealer version (ILS) is that open for them to access all of the facilities/options. Whereas it seems that Autologic is able to get all the readings as well as being able to edit the config file.

If you don't use the park brake, I assume that you hold the vehicle using the foot brake?

There is absolutely no difference between holding the car on the foot brake and using the foot brake. They use the same pads on the same disc. The only difference is that the park brake operates only on the rear wheels.

On the Jags with a separate parkbrake caliper (mine included) I would rather use the parkbrake on a hot disc as the pads are about a third the size of the main caliper pads.

I only turn up here on the forum when I have a problem, fitting my dash cam was the problem. I now know why my Cigar lighter doesn't work even though I stuck a fuse in for it! I also now know that the rear one does work and turns off on locking the car, perfect....other than the fact that the cable is too short :( ....Ebay here I come!

Anyway, the forum has sorted my problem again, keep up the good work.

I'm with Wilf on this one. Whenever you start to get weird messages, a change of battery is always the first port of call. This forum is littered with the phrase 'change the battery'!!
Me too! I'm with Wilf and Reevo. Jumped in the car the other day and clunk, nowt! Battery shot. Worked perfect the day before, no funny messages as a warning. I have found that the parking brake emergency release does not work if the battery is dead! Not much help with car reversed in the garage!
You are lucky, heed the 'funny' warning messages and change the battery while you can still start it.
