2002 Jaguar X-Type PARKING BRAKE NHTSA Campaign #04V487000
Summary: On certain passenger vehicles equipped with lhd manual transmissions, the hand brake, which applies the parking brake, may not apply sufficient pressure to the brake pads to prevent the vehicle from moving if the manual transmission was left in the neutral position. The automatic adjuster within the hand brake may not work properly causing the hand brake lever to travel outside the recommended range.
Consequence: If the vehicle travels outside the recommended range, the vehicle may roll away and a crash may occur.
Actions: Dealers will replace the existing automatic adjustment hand brake lever system on the affected vehicles with a manual hand brake lever system. The recall began on January 14, 2005.

2002 Jaguar X-Type EXTERIOR LIGHTING:TURN SIGNAL NHTSA Campaign #03V011000
Summary: On certain passenger sedans, the power circuit which feeds the direction indicator system could fail. This could result in the driver being unaware that the external turning indicators are not operating because the internal "tell-tail" light on the driver's instrument panel continues to work normally.
Consequence: The loss of rear turn signals could fail to warn a following driver that the vehicle is turning and could result in a crash.
Actions: Dealers will replace the general electric module. Owner notification began April 1, 2003. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Jaguar at 1-201-818-8500.
