Question about 1990 Jaguar XJ6
Car was running fine until I ran it through a car wash (not touchless). Stupid error on my part. Now the transmission sensor light is on and according to the book, it's in limp mode. Took it to a Jag dealer and Jag does not have the equipment to test a car that old! Transmission shop says it's the sensor. Know where I can locate one? Or any thoughts on what's going on?

No. But if can't get it on a lift or high enough to work under comfortably..it will be very awkward. The calipers get in the way when you are removing the springs and shocks as a unit. You can move the part and get it out and down, but you will need to remove the rear wheels and let the rear springs hang down.
Make sure you have a good spring compressor to get the old springs off....in most cases it is the springs that go soft and not the shocks...
Don't assume that it is the shocks unless you know for sure they are bad.

If you have checked your automatic transmission fluid, and its OK.
Does it smell burnt ?
Sounds like you have a mechanical problem in the transmission.
The ABS light on is another problem.
This is usually associated with a rear ABS sensor faulty, due to corrosion in the rear hub.
Give me some feed back !

When this happens, usually you have to replace the Computer. There is a chance you just didn't reset it when you took to cables off. Remove them and tape or hold them together for 5minutes or longer. If it still does it, I would get a book and find out where the code is to lead you. With the obd it only gives you a starting point in the diagnosics. You may have air in your lines that need bled, a sensor out, or just plain adjustment of the cables. But it shouldn't go into limp home mode unless you lost your Engine Control Monitor. Oh, I didn't click the read more button. Check the E-brake cables. You may have run over something that hooked it and ripped it loose. The Jags can tell if the cable is too far out of adjustment. It's under the car, cable should go through the floor and run to the rear of the car and Y out to the rear wheels. Good luck.
