Firstly well done and what a great thread.
This thread is inspired by a similar one in the Jaguar X-Type forum that I used to contribute to a lot.
Essentially - what features have you discovered about your GT that aren't documented in the handbook (or at least you never expected to find in there...). Some examples for the Jag X-type was that the headlamp washers only operate every 6th time the windscreen washers are sprayed (and not at all if the low windscreen washer water light is on), and that if the fog lights are on they will extinguish if you turn on the main beam lights.
First off on the GT - there's an alarm beep that sounds if you attempt to pull away with the handbrake on!
I think my GT once had headlamp washers. It is a CAT D and had some front end light damage but I think maybe they did not repair the headlamp washer.
The near side has a blanking plate that if you take off has a die cast alloy doins inside. I tried washing the windows but it did nowt. The offside has no alloy doins and the plate missing (which I have but is no use as you cannot fix it on)
. Does anyone know if the Jag feature mentioned is a feature of the GT?
Mine do that. Have you found a fix?
also your parking sensors will stop working but you will still have the flat line sound just to remind you you once had funtional parking sensors
As for the other secrets such as 'see me home' lights I read that somewhere but wondered why mine did not do it. Will try it later.
The illumination of just the speedo is something to try but I can't see a use. In Greece many years ago the taxi drivers switched all the lights of inside in their 190 Mercs. So the the passengers could not see how fast they were surely going to die at.
I only have soft copy of the handbook and think it is for a 2006 car whereas mine is 2005. There maybe differences.
Has anyone worked out why there are two lights on the air recirculation button on the climate. I think if you switch the air con on and have it in auto they will both light. Otherwise they light up in series as you press the the button???
