Question about 2004 Jaguar XJR-Series
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.

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.

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.

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!
