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.

The gear stick on my 2004 saab is blocked. why?


Before you try to fix anything, try applying the foot brake really, really, really hard when you shift out of park. If that makes it better, take it to a mechanic for adjustment.

When I turn on my car Audi a6 2004 it won't let me go from park to drive why is that


could be the switch in the braking system that must be engaged to shift out of park is broken or non functioning because of wiring or sensor not working. When Audi got in trouble with the un-intended acceleration issue, they installed this safety feature so that your foot had to be on the brakes before it would shift out of park.

My 2005 jaguar s type stuck in reverse. Please help me


My 2005 S-Type was stuck in reverse but the gear stick was stuck in park. After taking the console apart trying to figure out why the shift lock wouldn't open...three hours later I got under the car and discover that one of the two bolts that held the transmission cable in place was missing...I replaced it and that was all it took.

2004 x-type jaguar stuck in park after tail light problem . Simple brake light replacement turned into a nightmare. Scared to have the car towed.Can,t afford to have a jaguar tech come out, We're screwed....


Check the brake light fuse. If you blew a fuse for a brake light, you won't have power to the shift interlock which allows you to move the shifter.

Trans in park computor read out on dash reads it is in drive


You most likley have a bent/damaged shifter cable. Unhook it at the trans, and move the linkage, with the park brake set. Push it all the way forward, that is park. The display should change and it should start. If so you will need the cable. Good Luck

1999 s type jag gearbox problem


Sticky transmission I call that. Go see a few garages and a few quotes with guarantee on workmanship..
Mind you I started on big trucks with Allison transmissions and we overhauled those.
Too long a story to explain those transmissions.

I you really want to:
http://www.car-stuff.com/jaguarrepairmanual.htm
order a haynes manual (need technical preknowledge)
or maybe local library with something on these type transmissions.

Pls rate a woman coming to your aid.
