SOLUTION for x-type Transmission fault error
I had this very same problem. My 02 x-type would get transmission fault code and then shut down into limp mode. If I turned the key off, shifted gears a few times and waited I could start up again and sometimes drive for several miles before the code came back. GOOD NEWS, I thought maybe the vechicle was overheating the tranny or something like that and then after it cooled down I could drive some more. I discovered that my gas station had switched to the 10% ethanol addative about the same time I started experiencing "strange" mechanical issues. I decided to try switching my gas to the non-ethanol gas from a Phillips 66 station that advertised 100% REAL GAS. The problems mysteriously dissappeared!!!! Remember that you MUST use PREIUM gas as per the MFR. Well the 02 3.0 can't handle the 10%ethenol in it's gas. Something else you can try if you can't find REAL GAS is to use the OCTANE boost from your local auto parts store. Pay close attention to which brand you buy since some can harm your fule system. As a side note; I also own an 04 s-type with a 3.0 under the hood. It looks different from my 3.0 and has no problem running on the ethenol added gasoline. However after the horrible mechanical experience I had with the ethenol in the x-type, I now use 100% real gas in both. I have been transmission fault free for 5 months now.

I recently, April 12, purchased a 95 XJ12 that looks like it has minor problems. Its overheating. The Jag has been sitting for 2 years in a garage. It did not have a current title or local state plates, so it was sitting in the garage.
Anyway, I am restoring it. The prev owner gave me a Jag XJ12 DVD with all the manuals and diagrams. However, it did not have the diagrams I needed for the relays. So, I started to look for manuals. Nothing exists aside from the Jaguar OEM DVD and more expensive dealer paper manuals.
Unfortunetly, the 95 XJ12 has the OBD-1 system on it. I am in the process of finding a OBD-1 for the 95 XJ12. So far, none, but am calling OBD scanner companies.
The site below cost $17 one year and $50 5 years but it has all of the diagrams for all the relays, etc, repair instructions, ...
I purchased $50 plan since I plan to keep the JAG. I think its going to be a classic.
I would like to keep in touch with you to share info on self-repair tips.
If you want to share the cost for the site above email me.

First off check the battery. Try and jump start it. If that does not get the vehicle running you may have a problem with your J gate as it will not start unless in park or neutral. If an internal electrical fault has happened then the micro swith may not send a signal to the ecu to allow the car to start. the J gate is the gear selector by the way
