My XJ has been pretty good in the snow (with winter tyres though).  The traction control system on these is quite clever, bit it does counteract wheel spin by jamming the brake on of the spinning wheel which can cause heavy rear brake pad wear. It's also very boring so I have been turning off my traction control.

Jaguar in Garage! 

 

Oh dear. Started her up this morning and got 'Restricted Performance'. My scanner says P0332 knock sensor bank 2 - now the interesting bit, I also got park brake fault.

 

Usually this is signs of a failing or low battery - even though mines brand new,  Lets see what the garage say!

When the alternator on my V6 Mondeo failed (related engine, but probably a different alternator) I just bought and fitted a new regulator for about 30 quid as the rotating bits of the alt looked absolutely fine (and were fine, as it turned out). Fitting it to the alternator was no problem, extracting the alternator to get at it was the difficult bit! Something to bear in mind if it happens again.
