Question about Jaguar XJ

1 Answer

Hello, I have a Jaguar XJ40 (1990) with an automatic gearbox ZF4HP24. One month ago it put itself on secure mode (light on) then the light was off but no reaction on R position and only 1st gear on D position. After having checked everything, the Jaguar garage advised me to change the gearbox, I did it but the problem remains the same do you have any idea about what can I do? Thanks Alain LE GUEN 56250 ELVEN FRANCE

i had the same problem with my s-type, when i went to jaguar dealer for diagnostic and they told me it was trans problem, need new trans and will cost me $4500 to fix it, so i think you will be better off looking for a salvage trans to put it in your car, it will cost you around $1500-$2500 including labor. i hope that will help some of you with gear box fault massage. oh try and find some one who knows a lot about jaguar before you send the car for trans repairs.
