You must have a check engine light on in your dash. You first need to pull up the code. I will assume your trans is an automatic. If so, when your trans goes into limp mode, if you stop , shut off your motor, and start again, does your car run OK again, till the next time it goes into limp mode. If so you have a bad trans solenoid. Sometimes this solenoid is on the outside of a trans and sometimes it's on the inside. If inside you would have to drop the pan, and valve body, because it's on top of the valve body. The fan is a separate issue. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Hi i have a 2009 diesel x type jaguar when first starting car i have gearbox fault and car goes into limp mode but after 10 minutes driving when you switch off and restart car everything is fine


When the limp home is engaged by the processor a fault code or codes is set in memory, it may be a Transmission code or engine fault code. You nee it tested with a full function scanner, a code reader will not read the transmission faults.

Amber gearbox light came on in my 2004 S type Jaguar. After shutting engine down and cooling it started with no light on. So, I limped home. The Q: Now that the light is no longer lit can I drive it? Or,...


you need to have the car scanned for freeze frame data code reading to see what happened at the time of the limp mode...Let me say that at times after heavy rain or even if you wet the fire wall near the throttle body, that can also cause the limp mode coupled with brake, dcs,and gear box fault and engine fault lights etc...You can actually do a hard reset yourself by disconnecting the neg battery terminal for 30 min..Let the car run and take it for a drive to make sure the shift points arent jerky.But have the car scanned and let me know what code comes up.

Gearbox fault light and cruise not available


The only thing that will cause a cruise control fault is a loose vacuum hose ussually on the breather hose coming from the valve cover in front to the throttle body. As for the remainder, shut off the car and restart to get you home and avoid the limp home mode. That in itself is an electronic fault in the ground system. Check you coils or replace them with a new set of plugs (autolite double platinum recommendes.) Clean any grounds you may have and then start you engine. You will notice there is no problem then. Run a diagnostic tool to see if there is any fault with grounded sensors like the O2 to keep that from happening again. Don't get the tranny replaced cause thats all the dealership wants to do and charge you $5k. Its not the actual cause. Good luck and let us know if there is anything else we can do here at fixya.

GEARBOX FAULT MESSAGE for jaguar s 2001


Replace transmission and sell quickly. I bought 2001 s-type in October 2008. I have not been able to drive it. 1st thing was gearbox fault message which turned out to be transmission. Ford can rebuild cheaper. Next thing to happen was all seals needed replacing. Then all coils needed to be replaced. Coils keep going out. Needs new computer which has 8 year/80000 mile warranty on, but Jag would not honor ($3000). Needless to say my pretty jag sits in the driveway. Had to get another car. Went with Lincoln LS V8. GREAT car!

My jaguar s type has a new message- failsafe engine mode. when it was amber the car was ok but now that its red i have to limp home. how serious is this please. benn quoted a LOT of money at a jaguar main...


Sorry late reply - just seen this problem. The amber warning is basically saying a problem developing. The red and limp home action is showing more serious developement - But not always very bad news. Had car with same symptoms and it was a faulty sensor on engine, and another similar case was throtle position sensor. Get the car to a garage that can read the faults - so you know what the problem is that has been registered in the memory.
Hope this helps
