    I currently have the service parking brake warning. It seems to be functioning properly but is giving a c1802 code. I can hear it working and have verified that it is applying the brake but they are not fully engaged. So if the problem is cable stretch what is the solution? Manual says REPAIR or INSTALL new parking brake components as necessary. Which components? Will replacing the short cable on the drivers side take up the slack? They is available aftermarket or do you have to replace the whole assembly? Can you shorten the cable by affixing a new end with a swaging tool or welding? Feedback please.

    It's probably a failing/failed parking brake cable, though it could also be a bad caliper or a bad module.
    I don't see a way to repair a cable that wouldn't fail very soon. If the calipers check out as working correctly, then I'd replace the left and right parking brake cables (not sure why you are picking on the driver's side cable). The passenger one seems to fail more often, but once one goes, both should probably be replaced.

    AFAIK, the only source for the cables is the junkyard.

    Yes both calipers seem to be ok. I pulled the levers a little farther and was able to get the pads to clamp tightly so I couldn't spin the wheel. The reason I said drivers side was I thought it was the only one that separated from the assembly. I will have to give myself a little more room to get under the rear and take another look at the cable routing.

    I slipped a sleeve around the cable by the end to take up the slack and tested it. System was able to fully apply the parking brake and the warning went away. Now I know that it is definitely the stretched cables. Just have to find new cables now.

    Since the DEW98 chassis is shared with the S-type... it's possible that the actuator and cables are the same.

    The issue is that the serial # cutoff dates on the Jag seems rather random... but there are differences.

    Maybe talking to someone at a Jag dealer... that is also somewhat familiar with the LS, would work.

    I know in the past at least one person on this forum has dealt with someone in the parts department of Terry's Jaguar in Michigan... with positive results.

    I have also used their website to cross reference parts. Again though... close attention has to be paid to the VIN cutoff dates.
