Question about 2000 Jaguar S-Type

Gearbox fault of Jaguar S Type

Hi,
Jaguar S Type, March 2000, 94000 miles, started showing warning sign "gearbox fault" intermittently. No noise and running smooth but somtimes erratic gear changes. Jaguar dealer diagnosis shows code P0795. Told I need a new gearbox £3500, but car only worth £3000. Is there anything I can do? My father has exactly the same problem with his Jag. It's a 2000 S-type 3.0. Everything feels ok but it shocks a bit between the second and third gear. He's still in doubt what to do.

Unfortunately Jag dealers always say you need a new this/new that !!
I had a very similar problem on my first s type 1999. I was told it was a gearbox fault by jag dealer, but a local gearbox specialist disagreed. Unfortunately I went with the dealers advice and changed the gearbox - did not solve the problem - further investigation showed misfires on coil pack which confused the engine and therefore the gearbox. the gearbox was trying to compensate for engine power loss/fault - by changing gear eractically and then as the engine changed the gearbox was wrong so showed a fault !!
Anyway = short answer - get an independant GOOD gearbox specialist to test drive your car first ... really hope this helps as it will be a lot cheaper !!

    If the J selector packs up on S type (1999 - 1997/8) you are screwed. The part is not available in either the UK Europe or the USA. the company making this part went bust 2 years ago. Your on chance of repair is to obtain the J selector from a scrap car, Scrap dealers are aware of this problem and you will pay through the nose for this part. otherwise your car CANNOT be repaired! Jaguar UK know about this problem, it featured in Classic car weekly wed 20/10/2010

    Start by checking all the cables that run to your gear box. check the oil level and if posible change it and then let me know of what will happen next.

Fault code P0795 indicates a "fluid pressure solenoid C " problem, and the causes are: wiring poor connection, solenoid itself or the ECU.
Threre a lot of solutions for that best one is replace the gearbox
But first look for another mechanic and try to strat from gear box flush and changing the oil in it for synthetic one for instance.
Good Luck

  • I have a Jaguar S-Type 3.0SE 2000 model and has been driving nicely till I parked it. When I started to drive and shifted gear from park to drive there is a scritch sound and the car can't move. It just goes its rerves up. Can it be a gearbox fault even though no such indication on the dasboard indicator?

You need to check all the electric cables that go to the gear box if they are in good condition. this problem comes about if the oil level is low in the gear box and mostly if the oil needs to be changed. start from this angle and let me know.

    I know this thread is 3 years old, but thank you. My gear box fault light is on, my car goes into every gear except drive. I know how to get it into drive. I see spots of oil on the ground beneath my car. I put a white piece of cardboard in the spot and discovered it is transmission fluid. I wondered if it could be a leak causing the gearbox light to come on. I pulled into my garage to park it until I could find a good mechanic to fix it. When I put it into park I heard metal hit metal. I have not driven it at since then. What are your suggestions for me? If you have any, I thank you in advance.

SOURCE: Gearbox fault of Jaguar S Type

unfortunately when that code, and that gear box fault light comes on, its pretty much game over for the transmission. It only a matter of time before performance of the transmission gets worse and worse. BUT that transmission is VERY easy to replace, i would check out a few trustworthy independent shops to give you a better price! I am usually a die-hard dealership, having been working at this jaguar land rover dealership for the last 2 years, but you are pretty much for sure going to be a cheaper price on the labor and like i said it is a pretty easy task.

My only precaution MAKE SURE IF YOU GETTING A USED TRANSMISSION THAT YOU GET SOME TYPE OF WARRANTY ON IT. Too many times have I seen customers loose thousands of dollars paying someone to put a used engine or transmission and have it fail almost right away.

Jaguar s type 03 gearbox fault warning light on dashboard, gear stuck in 4, reverse engages ok, what could it be?


sounds like it is in get you home because of gearbox failure if its the early box with metal sump check selector cable adjustment it critical as the J gate micro switches and the linear switch on the side of the gearbox have to be in sync with each other. on the other hand if it is the later gearbox with plastic sump, which i suspect it will be, check it has not lost some of its oil due to leaking sump, common problem! other wise check fault codes in transmission control module, any codes relating to incorrect gear ratio means internal falure most times

Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

This could be caused by many things - but don't panic - as the car is driving okay it is probably a spark plug coil as at your mileage you are due a change. The gearbox fault sign can be caused by the engine misfiring and confusing the gearbox controls - happened to me - took lots of investigations to prove it. Best to get your car on a diagnostics rig and see what faults are recorded. good luck - hope this helps.

GEARBOX FAULT MESSAGE for jaguar s 2001


Replace transmission and sell quickly. I bought 2001 s-type in October 2008. I have not been able to drive it. 1st thing was gearbox fault message which turned out to be transmission. Ford can rebuild cheaper. Next thing to happen was all seals needed replacing. Then all coils needed to be replaced. Coils keep going out. Needs new computer which has 8 year/80000 mile warranty on, but Jag would not honor ($3000). Needless to say my pretty jag sits in the driveway. Had to get another car. Went with Lincoln LS V8. GREAT car!
