Anti-lock brakes failed to operate during 'sudden stop' causing crash. Air conditioning system does not cool car off, even at lowest temp. Set and highest fan setting; car was brought into dealer 3 times for this as of this date; car does not take fuel - auto shut-off prevents it from accepting fuel; during recent crash caused by total brake failure, air bag light came on but no air bag deployed - why didn't the air bag deploy?; low fuel light does not come on; remote will not lock car, only unlock

My 2005 Jaguar 3.0 S was proceeding eastward on a city street within the 30 mph speed limit when it became necessary to make a sudden stop to avoid a car stopped in traffic lane. Brakes failed to operate. Brake pedal went to the floor with no slowing of vehicle at all causing my car to hit the other vehicle.
