Question about 2004 Jaguar XJR-Series
My Jaguar 1998 XJR V8 has gone into the body shop who have removed both front wings and the front bumper. The car now will not crank, the battery is not flat and we just get a bunch pf error codes like gearbox fault, traction control etc. We tried touching the battery terminals together to try to reset the ecu but to no avail. We have tried 2 different expensive diagnostic readers and the car will not communicate with them. Can anyone please help?
Someone swapped your pcm in the car take to dealer have pcm codes read and pcm model and serial numbers make sure they match by vinif dont file police report

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.

Check under the driver side fuse box which below left of the steering wheel if there is any dampness then it s screwing the ecu,this could be due to a seal leak in the window or holes near the axle.ALso the transmission needs fluid to be change as most jag trans fluid need replacing before 75k, clearing the codes will clear the engine light which also improve the cars shifting.

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: Jaguar xk8 1997 The throttle
My throttle body problem was diagnosed by the local Jaguar dealer (Barrett Jaguar in San Antonio, TX). They wanted $1200 to fix it. I had read on the internet that the throttle body should be cleaned out first because that could be the problem. When I asked them if they could clean it first to see if that is what is wront they told me that it would not do any good. It was an electronic problem and the whole thing needed replacing. I had my brother-in-law who is a mechanic clean it out for us and reinstall it. We have had no more problems. Can you believe I got a coupon in the mail yesterday from Barret Jaguar for a $143.50 throttle body cleaning special!!!!!! Liars all of them! Don't trust your dealer to tell you the truth! They just want as much money as they can **** out of you.
