See post #12. You probably will be fine but that’s from another model. XJ or XE?
It’s being advertised as a part from an x260 XF 2.0d, (date of manufacture 05/08/2015) but as they didn’t quite match up with the ones provided on here I wanted to double check.

Hi all sorry it’s late. I’ve recently attempted this retrofit myself on an X760 and felt like I’d throw a few things into the mix just to make others aware of problems that you might run into. The radar was easy enough to come across, I paid £160 for it. The grille and radar grille cover where also east enough to find.

The install went fine, with the radar in position and plugged in within an hour. I plug SDD into the car and now attempt to edit the CCF and update the radar, but a question mark is on the “CCM” meaning something hasn’t gone to plan, it should have a green tick. After lots of research, it became apparent that there was no power being sent to the radar even though the plug contained all the wires as per the diagram. Rather than messing around, I used a spare ignition timed fuse from one of the engine bay fuse boxes and ran the wire from there to the radar and connected the power together. There was now a green tick on SDD allowing me to update the module.

Now the module had been updated, I made the CCF edits. This caused problems as soon enough I noticed that the selection “Intelligent Cruise Control” would not remain “Fitted” or “Not fitted” and kept flashing up as “C9” even after selecting fitted and confirming this. After a lot of research again, and multiple hours of frustration I finally figured out that I had to manually open the SDD CCF file and changed the mask of “Connect information status” from “0xF8” to “0x38” as for some reason this was causing the binary numbers to conflict. If anyone needs help doing this, feel free to DM me directly as it’s rather in depth.

With this change made and yet again back into the CCF editor, the intelligent speed control option now remained as “Fitted” when selected, thus completing all changes necessary in the CCF.

A quick flash back to the car and time to put the radar into alignment mode, this completes with ease and I now have the flashing amber icon to indicate it’s calibrating. A short drive later the light extinguishes, I pull over and cycle the ignition. I now have forward collision alert working, however cruise control does not operate at all. No warnings, no DTC’s, it just doesn’t turn on. Strangely, I can change the sensitivity of the radar, but cruise just doesn’t turn on.

Again after reading up on this, I can only assume this is due to the fact that I’m using the ABS unit with a large “A” on it. I have ordered a “B” ABS module and am currently awaiting its arrival, at which time I’ll be installing it and testing it again.

I hope that this helps some of you as there is rather limited information on these in depth retrofits, and I think it’s better that we get it all out there and help each other out as much as possible.

I’ll update again once the “B” ABS module is installed, as to if this is the cause to why the cruise does not operate.

Well done so far Luke, thanks for the update and good luck with the 'B'..

These are the settings I found and adjusted, all are set to this apart from speed Ecu Is set to UK.

The B module that turned up was in fact wrong and the seller had listed the wrong item, so still no adaptive cruise working.

Okay guys, another update. Received the module, part number HX73-14F447-BF to fit in replacement of the same part number but ending AF. Fitted today, and it lit the car up like a Christmas tree. ABS errors, EBD Red errors, Park brake malfunction etc etc. At first I was pretty confident that it would sort itself out, so I went onto SDD and selected configure new ABS module. This then updated the module, and then would not continue through the process as every time it reached the parking brake replacement stage, it would fail. I couldn’t get the park brake to work at all, sdd would fail both applying and releasing and activating and deactivating service mode.
I then ended up taking the module back off and putting my original unit back on and immediately no problems and all lights were gone again. I am not sure what or why this happened, I can only assume the module has the wrong software or is incorrect for my vehicle? Even if this is the case, I can not find any information as to how to or where to flash the modules with the correct software.

when looking in the dtcs, SDD stated the module had “internal electronics failure” with a 100% match as to why the lights were on, as well as a “incorrect programming” error.

it’s a shame as really thought today I’d finally have ACC functioning but it would appear not. Hopefully someone on here will know what’s gone wrong as I really would love to get this working.

I think the SDD still wants to use your new module as an old one ("A"), and tries to update it with wrong firmware. Have you modified the module type in the CCF file?

Hmmm, I didn’t manually modify the CCF no. Perhaps this is what’s happening. I did check the car information button where it shows all the modules it’s communicating with and it did indeed read the correct part number there though 🤔

Fitted all the parts, but run into trouble with the ABS unit.

I installed the ABS modulator "B" from Jaguar XE: GX73-14F447-B* instead of HX73-14F447-B*.
Whet I try to program the new module, the SDD comes with the following screen:

View attachment 188202

Obviously, it knows, (from as-built?) that a different ABS type should be fitted, and tries to download the firmware for HX73-14F447-A*.
I cancelled this step, and it goes to the VIN learning stage, which is completed successfully, but the SSD still reports “DTC for ABS U3000, Fault type 55 (System programming failure - is not configured).

Question to more advanced SSD users: How can I modify the "as-build" file, or something different, to make it work?
This appears to be exactly the same situation which occurred when I plugged my new module into my vehicle. How did you fix this ?

You flashed your new module with old module’s software. If you want to make your system works - text me PM, i will fix it.

is it working now?

I have one question on the ACC function. Can it be used in traffic jam? Does the car brake to 0 km/h and starts moving when the front car moves?
Is it worth doing all the retrofit incl. change the ABS unit?
