Default 02 X-Type check engine light

My check engine light came on a couple of days ago, with no symptoms of anything being wrong. This morning I got a message saying "cruise unavailable" and the car is lerching when you accellerate and acting starved.

You really need the codes read to try and do any sort of diagnosis. Try a local parts store like Autozone, pepboys etc. most will read codes for free. Many codes can cause the cruise unavailable message to appear. it just means the problem is bad enough that the ECM doesn't want you using the cruise control.

My check engine light came on today too and the car would lurch when accelerating.
I got it home and now it runs fine again but the light is still on. Was this some sort of glitch? How do I get the engine light off? Can I disconnect the batery to reset the computer ?

******update*****
The light finally went off with normal driving...all seems to be well now....no problems.

its better to have the codes read like what real_tech said, in that way you guys know whats causing all these and probably fix it before it gets worse.

Exclamation Help!!

Your right...the light is back again but there doesnt seem to be any problems. At first their was lurching like the computer was shutting down a few cylinders. After a restart that stopped along with the amber light and no cruise......all seems normal but now the engine light remains on.

My question is this : Will transmission problems cause the light to come on? Im not noticing any problems here but Im taking it to AAMCO tomorrow to have the codes read for free. (california sucks...autoparts stores cant read codes for free here)

Also....just out of curiousity and to confirm tomorrow what they tell me....what does this sound like?

(As a quick side note...I have 106K miles on my x-type 3.0 and have yet to change out the plugs.)

Fuel filter was replaced not long ago as well as the air filter and oil change. Thats about it!


Thanks

Keep in mind that once the check engine light is turned on because of a problem, it will remain lit for the next 5 starts of the engine provided all faults are clear. With that being said, the codes will remain inside the computer to be read at some later date, regardless if the light is on or not.

I was taking a look in ALLDATAdiy.com and there are a few tests in there for you. It sounds like you may have a bad Accelerator Pedal Position Sensor. I attached a picture of it for your Jaguar X-Type. Check the connector and make sure you have a good connection. Click the image to open in full size.

The second code is P1111, not P111 - Fuel air metering

Please advise, thanks

I just had the P0174, turned out to be some bad vacuum hoses.

Default codes

It's pretty simple to use the search function yet every day there are new 'code' wTF is it threads.

It's one of only a few things, it's a vacuum leak, look under the freaking hood and you'll hear it.

It's a TCM fault, do a search, me and every other member here has given instructions on where it is and how it's fixed if it is not completely blown or it's serious and you're screwed take it to the dealership and bring a boatload of cash.

Use the search newbs..please.
