Hi, I thought this may be of interest:
On Friday 9/27 my six month old I-Pace suddenly gave me this alert: "OK to drive with caution Brake pedal feel reduced" (see photo)
I called the dealer and they advised to bring it in that day which I did.
They told me they found a fault with the secondary battery (I believe that is the 12V battery) and a Power Supply box.
They had to order parts and the car was fixed and ready the next Friday.
However, that is not the end of the story. While they were working on the car my Jaguar Remote iPhone App gave me an alert "Theft Alert, your vehicle has indicated that it may be stolen". I believe this can be caused by the disconnecting of the 12V battery but the dealer was not aware and had not heard of this. They called the Jaguar Stolen Vehicle Center and were told that this alert would automatically clear in 24h. I picked up the car that same Friday (10/4) and it worked fine even though the App was still showing the theft alert, but with one exception. The data connection did not work and in the Connectivity menu under Data Connection it kept showing Reading SIM. There was the a persistent G with a diagonal line through it showing in the top right corner of the screen. In the end I decided to wait and see if it would resolve itself and it did. The next day the theft alert disappeared and at the same time the data connection established without problems.
So everything is working fine now and it was all done under warranty so no cost. Hopefully this was my one and only problem.

be careful with the brake pedal feel reduced. I got that warning first and then subsequently I received gearbox warnings, traction control warnings, etc.
Hi Brian, yes your original "Car Seized Up Completely" post of 8/14 where you mentioned that same warning actually made me react to it with urgency and bring the car in to the dealer right away. Thanks for posting!

This exact info message happened to me today and ironically I too have owned my i-Pace for 6 months. I greatly appreciated that you posted this as I immediately took it in for service as a result of reading these comments. Unfortunately I just got my car back from service 4 days ago due to a faulty front camera and I fully expect when I hear back from them tomorrow, it will require a part to be ordered, and will be another week without my car.

That's so strange. I too got that message today as well. It went away after I got out of the car at my next stop and got back in.

I've had that message a couple of times. I just turn the car off for a minute or two and the message goes away. Never felt the brakes were any different anyway.

Hi, please do post what the dealer found. It will be interesting to know if it is also the battery or whether it can be caused by something else.

The service department called and said the batteries were at the correct levels. They applied a few software updates. They have not seen the message again and basically I am good to pick up my car tomorrow. Needless to say that I am still concerned that the root cause of the warning message has not been identified.

This literally just happened to me. Sunday morning got the reduced brake feel warning. Drove from Carmel back to San Jose. This morning, drive 2.5 miles then parked. When parking, got the other errors (Stability control unavailable, ASPC not available). Car towed to Stevens Creek Jag awaiting diagnosis.

3rd issue with the Jag in 12 months. Fairly upset.

I just got the exact same problem. The break feel reduce error came and the next day got the other errors (traction battery fault detected, ASPC not available). The car did not come out of park and the "P" indicator was flashing! Had to tow the car to the dealer.
What was the diagnostics with your car and how long did it take to get the issues resolved?

Same here. Just had noticed 2 days ago my license plates are in, and the same day, the "brake pedal feel reduced" message. I figured I would have the dealer look at it when I pick up the plates and the bike rack I ordered. NExt day, yesterday, 2 min after leaving the house, the brake pedal stiffened up and stayed that way. made it back in driveway safe thanks to the regen brakes, got the tow truck ordered and by the time the tow truck was there (15min, not bad!) we could not shift gears and a bevy of other warnings showed up exactly like Ardy mentioned above. At the dealer. will see what happens. Fyi, i put 3000 miles in one month and it is a beautiful car to drive! really enjoyed not having to stop at the gas station these days.

Got my car back couple of days ago (after almost 4 weeks). Many people have the same problem. The technical bulletin JLRTB02012NAS1 addresses this issue. Do a google search for "JLRTB02012NAS1 " and look for "technical bulletin - NHTSA" to find the bulletin pdf file.

Thanks for the info. Repair looks pretty involved from a quick look at that bulletin. 4 weeks. woaw. That puts it into the lemon car category...
Will see how it goes.

So if you get the reduced brake feel warning and then it goes away. Do you still take the car to the dealership?

I was getting the message intermittently before the front compartment wiring harness got damaged and had to tow my car to the dealer. I recommend taking the car back to dealer. Have them check the car for technical bulletin JLRTB02012NAS1.
