To recalibrate it disconnect your battery and leave for 10 Min's. then reconnect and with the ignition on apply the foot brake and whilst keeping applied switch the parking brake on. then release the foot brake turn ignition off - on and the handbrake fault message should be gone and the parking brake should release as you drive off. http://www.fixya.com/cars/t2952870-s_type_jaguar_parking_brake_warning

IMPORTANT - make sure you have you radio code as you will need this after a battery disconnect.

When the PARK BRAKE FAULT light comes on the module has detected a problem and stores a trouble code. This code will need to be read with a Jag scan tool. Your problem may be due to low battery voltage, faulty park brake motor, module or possibly broken or binding parking brake cables. What you can do is reset the system. DIsconnect the negative battery cable for 10 minutes. Then reconnect it and start the engine. It will say "Apply park brake" on the messgae center. Pump the brakes then while holding your foot on the brake pedal pull up on the park brake switch handle. This should reset the brake and may rectify the problem. You can find Jagur tools at TechoPro Tools. Source: http://techprotools.blogspot.com/

This took care of the problem. Saved me money on towing fees and mechanic. Thank you very much.

Mine is a 2005 S Type sports automatic. I've had the warning message, and the parkbrake stuck on, five times, due to a low battery in cold weather. The first time, a Jaguar agent reset it by fiddling about in the boot for less than a minute. The next four times, (including today) I fixed it myself as follows. Turn off the lights etc. Run the engine for five minutes to charge the battery a little. Switch off the ignition until every warning light goes out. Turn on the ignition again. The parkbrake then works normally, and the warning has gone.

Worked for me. Wife's 2006 S Type had "park brake fault" indicator light "on" in parking lot and car would not move. Had her run car for 10 minutes then shut off. Turned back on, problem fixed. Suspect weak and failing battery. Will replace. Thanks much for sharing this tip.
