Not sure about this ,,,but i would be inclined to chock drive wheels ,handbrake on and with a wire from positive battery terninal re start the car by touching the small terminal on the starter motor do not rev engine whilst doing this or it will drive off on its own.and see what happens ,,but i doubt if you can move gearchange as it sounds like the cable from the brake pedal to the gear linkage has broke.try what i have just written and if that doesnt work call out a mobile mechanic who can change cable for you.without car in front of me i can only hypothasise the problem but i hope this has been of some use.

05 jaguar when drive gear stuck in 2


I am assuming an automatic transmission, 2nd gear is the default gear when there is a mechanical or electrical issue with the transmission. If the check engine lite is on, this would also verify that. If that's the case only a dealer or certified Jaguar shop can take care of this.

2003 jaguar xj8 stuck in park intermittently headlights won't work either


Dont think they will be related but when you press the brake pedal with the ignition on can you here a solenoid click under the gear shift? These are common to fail and often don't release the shifter.

Turn key, makes clicking noise but not start.


Double check your battery connections. If the battery is new and the starter makes a series of clicking noises when the key is held in the start position than you are not getting a good power supply to the starter or there is not a sufficient ground.

My tata magic doesnot shift to 2nd gear in fact


Could be gearbox failure, a sticky gear linkage, or a shot clutch

get under the car and look to see if the linkages are straight and not bent or jammed.

Most likely be that or the clutch

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.
