HAVE SOMEONE GO BEHIND THE CAR AND CHECK AND MAKE SURE THE BRAKE LIGHTS ARE ON, IF THEY DON'T WORK THEN THERE IS NO POWER TO THE BRAKE PARK INTER-LOCK SOLENOID AND YOU CAN NOT DIS-ENGAGE PARK. IF THEY DON'T WORK CHECK THE FUSE, IF IT IS OK REPLACE THE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH.

My 95 Jaguar Vanden Plas seems to not shift deep enough into park that when I go to start it , it wont start because it doesnt register being in park


Probably just a worn out, or out of adjustment, neutral safety switch. Try holding the key in the start position with one hand and wiggling the shifter with the other. Also, if it will start in neutral but not park you can do that until it's fixed. Make sure your foot is fully on the brake when you try this, if it is badly out of adjustment it may start in reverse or drive.

I am having the same problem with my 2004 XJ8. The shifter is in the park position but the reverse light is on. The car thinks it is reverse despite the shifter postion at park. I am unable to get it out of park position or start the engine.

Car is stuck in Reverse


It sounds like a bad shift indicator switch on the shifter. Kind of a pain in the *SS to get to those console's get real brittle.

Hope you get it in gear!!!

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

Gear locks when i park on even a slight incline


ALWAYS engage the Parking Brake BEFORE putting car into "Park". When you want to get out of "Park", put your foot on the brake pedal, move gear shifter into desired gear, THEN take down Parking Brake. If you get stuck (gear shifter doesn't move), then try the "rocking" method (recruit 1 or 2 folks to push your car from behind while you try to move gear shifter into desired gear). Good luck!

1988 Jaguar xj6 No forward in the automatic trans rev works fine


the linkage is just a slight bit off, it parks between gears when you shift into the slots. Disassemble the shifter from the center console, and slowly move just the cable its self between the positions and see if you have forword gears. When you find and sync the gears, then tighten the cable to the shifter so the positions match the notches in the shifter.

Shifter is stuck in park


check and make sure your brake light s work, if they don't the shifter is locked out, it is a safety feature to make sure your foot is on the brake when u shift into drive or reverse.
