Question about 2004 Jaguar X-Type

Open Question

I have a 2004 Jaguar S-Type. My transmission fault indicator light came on while I was driving down the freeway. That morning I noticed that my jag had very little acceleration power and is running at 3rpm instead of 2rpm. Any suggestions on what has caused this and what to do?

most likely the ran it up on the lift and that triggers all these. you should be able to bring it any local garage and they should clear it.

If the system won't test 1st look a blown fuse, if the fuses are ok you may be the rare case of a burned out Powertrain Control Module (PCM), but before you replace that very expensive module make sure the system not self testing is verified with another tester/code reader/scanner, I would buy one, they are easy to use the test plug is under the steering column dash panel, This is called the OBD data link connector.

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 have a 2004 Jag s type w/ 45k miles. Last night I got all the system lights and "transmission fault, parkbrake fault and dsc not available." Got home, turned it off, restarted after 1 minute, restarted...


First thing to do is get the battery checked and replaced if necessary. If the problem continues, it will be necessary to have a pro-shop check the fault codes (go to a Jag specialst, not a dealer)

What is the fault code? If you don't know you need to have it tested with a scanner that reads all JAG codes, that means the dealer.

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)

I have a 2002 X-type Jag. My engine light comes on and I had it check. The code is P1796. Can you tell what this mean?


My records show that P1796 Fault indicates a Kick Down Switch Circuit Malfunction, however there appears to be some discrepency here as other records show it as a CAN bus (off) fault. A quick check to see if your car will go into kickdown should identify which is which. Clear the fault then drive gently for 20-30 miles, if no engine light then use the kickdown and see if it comes on. You can check out other fault codes at http://www.bluejag.co.uk.
