P0507 in your Jaguar X-type

P0507 in your x-type is flagged when the computer sees that the RPM (speed of the engine) is higher than expected. This can be caused by a failure in the cruise control buttons in the steering wheel. The fault is usually at the cassette for the steering wheel. If you are wondering what the cassette is, is what allows an electrical connection between the buttons on the wheel and the car. Think about it, the wheel spins when you turn it therefore you can't put a straight wire, that's why we use a cassette. After some time, the parts in the cassette wear out and causes this fault.
