1998 Jaguar XJR V8 not starting

My Jaguar XJR has always been ultra reliable but the time has come for some body repairs. I took it to the body shop who have removed the 2 front wings and the front bumper and now the car won't crank. All you get is a load of errors like gearbox fault, traction control fault, etc etc. The batter isn't flat. We have tried to reset the ecu by touching battery wires together to no avail. We have plugged in 2 different high end diagnostic systems and the vehicle won't talk to them. Can anyone please help?

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.

SOURCE: Engine won't start on Jaguar XJ8 Vandenplas TRAC NOT AVAILABLE

hey blackdiam522,
First did you have a check engine light, and do you know what the code was if you did?

Ok, the traction control not available isnt goin to affect the car from starting.During my year of a jaguar tech the most common for a crank, no start is a flooded engine. Now the two most causes for a flooded engine on these jags are 1. the weather is just super cold and all the own does is keep cranking the car to try to get to start. 2. A lot of short trip, a lot of city driving, 15 mins or less.

When you get something like this, a no start crank, you have to pump the gas pedal really fast, like your starting an oil muscle car. this forces more air into the engine.

when this no start happend u could get all these codes, what i maybe would recommend is a tune up, and some highway driving every once and a while to kept this from happening again, hopefully this helps, thanks.

SOURCE: x-type jaguar automatic (gear box fault)

I have a 2002 X type (2 litre. done 44000 miles), dash showed gear box problem, (red circle light up). I pulled out and turned the engine off. 5 minutes later turned the engine on. The engine running but the car would not drive either in drive or reverse. Turned the engine off again and on the car driving but not much power. The care is taken to the Jag. dealer and told is misfiring + some gear box faults. Suggesting to change some coils and see (cost about £200+). also possible need to change the gear box costing about £2500+. Please advice. Shall I go ahead with the repair? Should I part exchange.

SOURCE: Que significa GEARBOX ENGINE SYSTEM FAULT esto

Significa "FALLA EN LA CAJA DE CAMBIOS Y DEL MOTOR" si cambiaste la bateria es muy probable que no le hicieron un respaldo, no se puede desconectar al 100% la bateria, normalmente de corrije sola esa falla, si no acude con algun mecanico que tenga scanner y te reset la falla, la otra falla posible es el sensor de oxigeno, apaga el auto completamente y espera un minuto y reintenta, si la falla sigue puede ser cualquiera de las 2 que te dije, suerte!

How do you repair jaguar s type with a s701 code


I'm not familiar with a code that is s701, typical engine cades start with P. However, jag had a mfr recall numbered S701 on 98-99 xj models. What year and engine is your jag? Also try these links http://www.jaguarforums.com/forum/s-type-s-type-r-supercharged-v8-x200-15/s-type-check-engine-codes-61719/. http://www.obd-codes.com/trouble_codes/jaguar/. JAGUAR S701 1672 V 3/1/2002 1998 XJ series, WJCXV04.0AS3 A number of owners of 1998 through 1999 model year Jaguar XJR vehicles, 1983 50S 4444 1999 XK series XJCXV04.0AS3 equipped with an exhaust gas recirculation system, have been alerted to the 2461 50S presence of a possible problem by the sound of an exhaust leak and/or illumination of the MIL. It was established that the noise was being caused by exhaust gas escaping from the pipe that transfers exhaust gas from the exhaust manifold to the EGR valve. The escape was caused by a crack in the transfer pipe. Remedy: The design of the convolutions that provide for flexibility of the transfer pipe has been modified to improve the pipe's resistance to damage during installation and due to vibration. A heat sock has been added to provide a vibration damping medium for the pipe. Technical Service Bulletin S701 describes corrective action. Hope this helps

I have a 2003 Jaguar XJR V8 Supercharge, and the ASC trac not available and Failsafe engine mode sign came on. The car engine shut down and I was able to restart the car, it happened when the car was...


As most likely know the engine in your Jag is controlled by a computer, when it senses a serious fault in any of the systems it monitors it can trigger a shut down with a restart, the shut down and needed restart is the same as rebooting a computer for a problem that has occurred in the system. What must be done now is to have the local dealer or a very well equipped shop run a scan of the computers memory, there will be fault codes stored for they event and warning lights. So get it tested.

Intermittent shut down of Jaguar XJR while running


The fault is intermittent - strikes without warning - and I guess if there are no error codes - so the fault is beyond the reach of the computer sensors - change your high tension coil.

When can I find instructions for changing the oil on my 2004 XJR?


Type in Jaguar service oil change on your brozer and as soon as you read two blogs that read the same or close enough, then get busy . Only the turbo cars have special directions. Starting off with a warm just shut off car, complete the work and restart the car right away is always good don't take your time as the oil can drain out of the bearings and then the oil oil pushing air though the system to the dry bearing equalls a dry start that can hurt any motor. As for getting the last little bit out, that little that stays in will mix with the new and be just as good if you are changing after a blown engine repair or other contanmination changing the oil more thean once is better than trying to get it all out and risk a dry start
