My O-Red S was delivered on Friday. Car is as amazing as hoped. I am an owners manual junkie - every time I buy a car I read it front to back in its entirety. And with foreign cars (Japanese, German etc) I am used to things being lost in translation when it goes to English. But the FP owners manual raises confusion to a new level! References to other pages aren't there and instructions for various functions are vague at best and non-existent at worst. I am pretty competent when it comes to technology, but the In Control system requires some learning and the manual is no help whatsoever. Anyone else have this reaction?

I wouldn't be surprised if the In Control would be a separate manual...
Maybe is not out yet, but they would add it later ?

This might help.


ownerinfo.jaguar.com
That is the actual owners manual in an on-line document.
What sucks in print also sucks on-line.
What was your point?

If it helps, there are instructional video's (not that they'll hold your hand), and I compiled the owner's manual into a searchable pdf that might come in handy. Note that on the video's there are several parallel versions for whether you have InControl vs InControl Pro.

Eek.. honestly - he is right. I have always found JLR manuals on the "light" side. Especially when it come to documenting the complexities of the entertainment systems etc. I do a lot of my research through trial and error because there are a lot of light spots in the manual. I finally stopped feel frustrated when checking my Evoque manual and learned to just give it a Gallic shrug.

So I will start by apologizing before I say what I am about to say. It is appreciated that you have compiled the list that you did but my main objection is not in giving those people credit for getting those items compiled. In particular the instruction manual. I spent the better part of a week converting the online manual into a semi searchable PDF document. It is convenient that your document is dated the same day as mine and as I recall your willingness to post the document to the cloud as I did not want to open a cloud account which I did anyway on Mediafire where I have the manual and the F Pace catalog was coincidental. Wasn't it??

If I am wrong then please accept my sincerest apology otherwise acknowledge the people who helped you along the way.

My apologies for inadvertently linking your earlier effort to reproduce the owner's manual. Since it wasn't searchable and had a lot of screen scrap duplication, I created my own. However, when I copied the links above, I pasted in the link to the wrong version. Sorry about that (to you and everyone), but below is the correct link. I think you'll find this more useful and half the size:

2017 Jaguar F Pace Owners Manual Preliminary
Thanks to whoever did all the work to produce these PDF files. However, the links do nothing but take you on-line to pages that can not be found. Has anyone seen any reference to a self-contained "file" with the F Pace ownerinfo (perhaps on DVD) that includes all data in searchable form?

The links do bring you to a page that shows Error 404 page not found. When uncheel and I created the first documents we did not try to redirect the external links to the correct pages within the document. The whole idea behind the document was to get those who wanted to look up something a simple off line means of finding things of interest to that individual.

There is no DVD manual available. The online manual is located here.

I'm bumping this old thread - We all agreed that the 2017 owners manual was severely lacking a ton of information. My question for those who bought the 2018, and ESPECIALLY those who have had both model years: Did they improve the 2018 owners manuals? Especially with regard to the ICTP which had virtually no information in the 2017 manual. My greatest pleasure is sitting down to read a new owners manual and that is the biggest disappointment I've encountered with my Jag.

I have to admit ,
that with ALL the Nit-Picking and Complaining going on , about the 2017 F-PACE ,
this post is a *Breath of FRESH AIR* !!!:D0:)

Your F-PACE must be a fluke , if the *Owners Manual* is your *BIGGEST Disappointment* !!!>:)

2017 Manual has Red F-PACE on cover and 285 pages. 2018 Manual has CB F-PACE on cover and 306 pages. I have not gone through page by page comparing the two but the "Touch Screen" section is word for word the same. anything specific you were interested in?

I agree also, the manual may "Cover" all the systems, but it doesn't say any thing about things that say "Trigger" things to work a certain way or if they are alterable, or if this happens, it is because of this..... Also in the setup sections that cover the cars user functions ( Not the entertainment functions...) There are literally very few really adjustable Items. My JEEP has literally at least 6-8 areas to open up on the UConnect display and inside those are anywhere of 2-5 things in each one that are user customizable.... From lighting, seats, climate control, his and hers settings ( Fob1 Fob2) Security features, Suspension, and the like....

I posted last week about how does the power management system works to save your battery on the FP.. it has a section but no explanation...well that's great ! But what does it power down and when? It could at least say something like "IF light are left on, FP will voluntarily power them off in15 min to save battery from further discharge" If I knew it would do this, I wouldn't get excited about my wife mistakenly leaving the lights manually turned on. This is straight out of the JEEP manual:

To protect the life of your vehicle’s battery, load shedding
is provided for both the interior and exterior lights.
If the ignition is OFF and any door is left ajar for 10
minutes or the dimmer control is rotated all the way up
to the dome ON position for 10 minutes, the interior
lights will automatically turn off.
NOTE: Battery saver mode is cancelled if the ignition is
ON.
If the headlights remain on while the ignition is cycled
OFF, the exterior lights will automatically turn off after
eight minutes. If the headlights are turned on and left on
for eight minutes while the ignition is OFF, the exterior
lights will automatically turn off.


How hard would it be to explain something simply like this?

I guess another explanation for it would be... The jeep owners manual is 667 pages long and the Jags is 350 ish. That tells me in the words of the immortal Ricky Ricardo that there is some more "Splainin" to do.......

The way I look at it is :

1. JAG-U-AR probably figured that if you were SMART enough to buy a JAG ,
then you are smart enough NOT to leave your *Lights On* in the first place !;)

2. JEEP probably figured that if you were GOOFY enough to buy a JEEP ,
that there would indeed be *some more "Splainin" to do* !>:)

Well... That's funny ! But....

What it really shows is a complete lack of competition awareness and benchmarking by JAG.... If I was writing a manual, the 1st thing I'd do is get 3-4 different manuals from the competition and see how they explained things. Then try to do it equally or better.... JAG is about 300 pages short. We are not trying to save paper here ! Perhaps a fair amount of dealer visits and phone calls, could be negated by a clear and concise manual. One of the measures of owner intelligence is trying to figure things out on your own. The manual is supposed to help you do this.... (Along with this website..)
But when the manual inspires MORE questions, then you may have the inclination that something is lacking somewhere.

I may have been goofy enough to buy a JEEP, but my JEEP dealer has never returned my JEEP to me after servicing with the same warning lights illuminated TWICE that it went in for, telling me it was fixed ! :eek:
