Question about 2000 Jaguar S-Type
I have a S Type. When you park on ANY incline always engage the hand brake first ( I have a BAD habit of not doing this ) Best solution, avoid inclines park on flat surfaces. You can try rocking the car although this is not good for your transmission . You can also try jacking up one of the rear tires once the tire has movement it will free up your locked transmission and you should be good to go. This I have tried and it does work. Your shifter alignment cable may be out of place or the clip on it has become jammed. I hope I helped you. In any case if you have a friend who fixes cars ask for their help first, my Jaguar dealer was going to charge me $1800 and on top of it my car would have had to be towed another $250.

That is because there is wear in your parking mechanism. Get somebody to pull the car in an uphill direction and it will release. Apply parking brake before selecting park and this should not occur again.
