On the gear selector plate on the centre console you will see a star
sort of shape turn that it should do it unless something is stuck in its path underneath . don't forget to depress brake pedal

My jaguar xjr8 year 2000 battery went dead started car went for short drive back in garege .next morning when started engine safe mode came on stopped car re started safe mode not on car drives superb when...


Yes that is normal. The ECM has no reason to let the engine rev higher than 3000 RPM when in Park, so it starts randomly cutting spark to different cylinders. That is why it shudders.

Where is the transmission fluid check ? my 2002 jaguar xtype is hesitating when I begin to go speed up, ie from a stop light. Im trying to check the transmission fluid but cant find the dip stick for it.


VERIFY PROPER PLUG IS REMOVED FOR LEVEL CHECK.

Because of the similarity to other plugs and fasteners on the transmission, the potential for loosening an incorrect fastener, instead of the level plug, exists. There is a risk for internal transmission damage if the improper fastener is removed.


  • Removal of the reduction gear brake band bolt can cause total loss of drive or a substantial reduction in the performance of the transmission.
  • Removal of the parking pawl rod plate retaining bolt (located next to the XYZ switch) will result in problems/gear lever movement restrictions.
  1. Raise and support the vehicle.
  2. Connect the approved Jaguar diagnostic system.
  3. Make sure J-Gate shift selector is in the Park position (P).
  4. With the engine running and the foot brake applied, move the J-Gate shift selector through "P-R-N-D-4-3-2" and back to the "P" position to circulate the automatic transmission fluid until the temperature reaches 30 to 40°C (86 to 104°F) on the approved Jaguar diagnostic system.
  5. When the automatic transmission fluid temperature reaches 35°C (95°F) check that the selector lever is in the "P. position raise the vehicle.

Jaguar S type will not move out of park


good posibility is brake light switch. this sits up behind your brake pedal. if you can move gear shifter with key just in between off and acc put shifter in position just between drive and neutral or park and reverse see if you can get it into gear from there if so that is most likely issue

I have a jaguar xj8 and the gear got stuck in park ,and I can't put it in reverse or drive. How can I fix this problem


Most likely the lock out switch at the brake pedal is at fault, because in order to put it in in to any gear you have to step on the brake first ! Their is a switch located which prevents you put it in gear with out stepping on the brake pedal, so check this switch first.

I have a 2004 X Type Jaguar, The problem is:


Hi.

This is a common issue with the Jaguar X-type and the S-type too.

If you are parked on an incline the vehicle can get stuck in park.

You will need to rock the car back and forth while someone disengages park, so when you park on any type of incline, apply the handbrake first, before you select park.

Hope I have been of help.

Good Luck !

John.
