    How does the ABS work on these?
    I honestly have zero idea!!!

    But if it's an ABS ring around the CV joint (looks like a little ladder wrapped around it) it could have split open meaning the car (via a hall sensor) doesn't see the one wheel rotating and has a spaz, the same sensor is probably used for the traction control. Hall sensors are magnetic so the broken ring sticks to it instead of rotating with the wheel.

    This ring split on my 306, so I tied it together with wire and glued it back in place, worked a treat for 2 years until I got round to having it welded :P

    Just a thought off the top of my head.... VX might do things differently.

    some times corrosion builds up on the abs sensor -causing it to incorrectly "space" - you might be able to clean it up and the fault should clear ?

    As I suspected! kinda!

    I was told my 306 needed a full driveshaft at a cost of £180 plus fitting. Tis why I bodged it :P

    Oh and the sensor wont be mounted on the hub, the ABS ring will be.

    Vehicle : Jaguar XF 3.0D V6

    Trim : Black

    Engine : 3.0D V6

    Year : 0000

    Default

    It could be the connector on the suspension leg. Water gets in, causing corrosion of the terminals, and hence non circuit.

    I would seriously check out the front ABS sensor wiring connectors and see if it is the problem, people have saved some cash by looking at these before.
