2018 Jaguar F-Pace - Drivethru carwash problems. I put it in neutral and it shot forward. At the end of the carwash, couldnt get it into drive. The gear shifter was locked. Had to roll out of carwash.


WOW YEA! I had a SIMILAR problem with my Chevy Malibu! That puppy DIED in a very busy California intersection! I mean the POLICE, a tow truck and trip to the auto mechanic who spent HOURS tracking down my problem.

At one point the mechanic was 80% SURE one of my COMPUTERS was bad! That is spelled with a $$$

The real problem?? The FUSE BLOCK got >>>wet from the BOTTOM<<< and drove my COMPUTERS NUTS until the Fuse Block was thoroughly dried out! And I do mean COMPUTERS because of the many 'fault codes' from many directions.

I mean the codes were serious enough to shut the car TOTALLY DOWN!

Later I got a sheet of rather thick plastic and made a shield to block any future car wash water and road water exposure. I mounted the "slightly extended plastic sheet" UNDER the fuse block to block all water from under the car... NO problems like that since.

Good luck!

My car computer won't reset itself to get the emissions test done


Disconnect the battery for 30 minutes. You will have to reset the radio/clock afterwards though.

My 2002 Hyundai Accent goes into 1 gear smoothly, jerks into 2nd and goes into 3rd gear smoothly. Then goes back down into 3rd and 2nd gears smoothly and jerks back into 1st.


CHECK ENGINE light??? Whenever the 'CHECK ENGINE' (Service Engine Soon) light comes on, the ECU (Engine Control Unit) sets a Diagnostic Trouble Code (DTC). These codes identify the particular engine management system which caused the light to come on.
You'll need to use/find an OBDII (On-Board Diagnostic) Scanner to retrieve any code which have been stored in the ECU computer. Afterward, we might be able to help you DIAGNOSE the problem and perhaps eventually fix the problem.

My Hyundai xg300 downshifts from 5th gear into 3rd gear. We have changed the mass air flow sensor and some other sensor that is attached to the transmission. We never wash the engine so it's not water on...


Yeah... why did you change the MAF?... Someone tell you the MAF caused your transmission to shift from 5th to 3rd?... I don't think so!

Trans drops into 3rd gear won,t shift to 4th


DTC P0734 is "4th gear incorrect ratio" - that's your torque converter 'LOCK UP Clutch" It's worn out (or you're using the wrong Trans Fluid required by Hyundai - SPIII OR Both). The P1624 is simply the Trans Control Unit (computer) communicating to the Engine Control Module (ECM computer) MIL - on request signal to ECM = asking it to turn on "Check Engine" light. MIL = Malfunction Indicator Lamp. When the torque converter 'lock up" clutch slips or doesn't engage, the trans automatically returns to 3rd gear and stays there (it's called 'fail safe' mode) until you cycle the ignition key, then everything resets until the malfunction occurs again.
You'll need to have an AT (Automatic Transaxel) tester hooked up to verify this. Hyundai has a Service Bulletin specifically for "gear incorrect ratio' codes. If when you changed the trans fluid, was it done at a Hyundai Service Center? If not, someone may have installed the wrong fluid.

Parking lights


I had the same problem--turned out there's a switch on the steering column behind the steering wheel. You've probably found it by now, but wanted to share :)
