Question about 2002 Jaguar S-Type

1 Answer

I have an S type with an automatic box. I cannot

I have an S type with an automatic box. I cannot engage the gears unless I overdide the solenoid using the manual switch on the side of the J leg.
I have just come back from the Jaguar dealer who said the J gate had had it and it wanted a new one. When it first happened the RAC believed the problem was the solenoid or a bad connection to the solenoid, somehere from either the brake pedal or ignition, but he could not find any fault. The problem cleared itself for about a month but has now re-appeared. If it was the J gate surely I could not not any gears at all regardless of whether the solenoid was operating or not.

Change the slenoid switch first which is cheaper then go to overhaul gearbox

I have a Suzuki Jimny automatic 2007. It has 3 buttons to select gear type. None of these are now working.


Start by looking at the fuse box... check all the fuses. Next possibility is a relay.

The Suzuki Jimny Transmission Control Module (TCM) is an electronic circuit component that controls gear shift, TCC lock-up and idle-up according to the signal from each sensor. It is a microcomputer consisting of an IC, transistor, diode, etc. It is installed behind glove box.

1. Ignition switch
2. Transmission range sensor
3. Input shaft speed sensor
4. Output shaft speed sensor (A/T VSS)
5. Shield wire
6. Vehicle speed sensor (VSS)
7. Transmission fluid temperature sensor
8. Shift solenoid-A (Shift solenoid No.1)
9. Shift solenoid-B (Shift solenoid No.2)
10. Shift solenoid-C (Shift solenoid No.3)
11. Shift solenoid-D (Shift solenoid No.4) 12. TCC solenoid (Lock-up solenoid)
13. "O/D" cut switch
14. "O/D OFF" lamp
15. Monitor connector No.2
16. DLC
17. To ECM
18. To A/C
19. To brake lamp switch
20. To main relay
21. Terminal arrangement of TCM coupler

Do I need a new gear box or is it just electrical issue on a Holden barina 2011 TM?


thats not an old car

how many KMs /miles done
dont think its a CVT type transmission

standard transmission checks
is fluid on the dip stick to the full mark
is the tranny oil dark and smells burnt
any oil leaks under the car

possibles
needs a service and filter
torque converter
solenoids
ecu

What does a shift solonoid do and also what does a torque converter do


A shift solenoid controls oil flow to the clutch packs in an automatic transmission. It uses DC power to turn them on The clutch packs control which gear you want The torque converter is basically a slippable clutch when you accelerate it engages and drives the gearbox

I had an automatic gearbox on Isuzu como 3.0i repaired. now the vehicle is only engaging 1,2 3 gears and overdrive is not engaging causing high fuel consumption on the road.what can this be. you can send...


Hi.

There are several faults that may result in the problem. Check the throttle position sensor voltage range. If the TPS is bad the transmission control module (TCM) will not know that you are opening the throttle and will not engage higher gears.
Check the solenoid for the gears that are not engaging. Check wiring from TCM to solenoids and wiring between overdrive switch and module. The transmission shift solenoid are located on the transmission in the valve body.
Check the speed sensor (VSS) located in the transmission.
If all that is OK sk the dealer to scan TCM and ECM (main computer) for issues.
Additionally if the box has been replaced with a used one, then the installed transmission may be faulty. Test all the rest first.

Regards.

No over drive


If you have a manual transmission model, check the wiring to the overdrive solenoid (M46,M47 transmission with type M overdrive) and check all fuses. This solenoid simply opens a check valve that allows the overdrive to function (DO NOT reverse the vehicle with the overdrive engaged or damage will result to the unit itself).
Automatic transmission models also have an overdrive override solenoid, bottom left side. If it is stuck in the override mode, check for shorted wiring to the solenoid. Also check the switch which can bind closed. If you can put a voltmeter on the wiring to the solenoid itself, check for voltage; if you have voltage and the switch is known good, the wiring is faulty. No voltage means the solenoid plunger is stuck down. Remove the solenoid and repair or replace it. In most cases replacement of a well-used item is better than repair.
All models: Always verify the condition of the wiring and connectors before condemning the unit. In most cases a voltmeter will rule out what the solenoid isn't doing. If you have voltage at the terminals on manual transmission models but no overdrive function, the solenoid has either seized or the coil has burned out. On automatic transmission models voltage at the terminals means the opposite: the solenoid will override overdrive and keep it in the third gear. No voltage for manual means no overdrive; no voltage on the terminals for automatic models means overdrive engages normally; if this is the case, replace the solenoid.
If, after all this checks out, on automatic models, this means that the transmission valve body has plugged up with deposits. For manual models, it means roughly the same (the overdrive is essentially a one-gear automatic transmission) and it also indicates that something is amiss with the hydraulic circuits, in both cases. Low line pressure can also cause this to happen in both types which means either the fluid is bad, the valve body is dirty, the screen is clogged or the main oil pump in the transmission (automatic models) is leaking. Always perform a thorough check before condemning either transmission type - they are conventional in design and very sturdy.
On AW-7x transmissions, no brake bands are used, therefore only clutch packs are employed. On the M46 and M47 manual models, the overdrive is a bolt on unit (type J or type M, depending on year). On the ZF series of automatic transmissions, the overdrive is integral to the transmission, being a true fourth gear. All models use a solenoid to control the upper gear range.
Note also that if you have the manual transmission, it may prove risky to rebuild it if you can beat the synchro by a quick change. Rebuilds offer up different wear surfaces to the case and can make a noisy transmission noisier.
Automatic models utilize clutch packs front to back. Band brakes were eliminated entirely, and when these start to fail the most noticeable problem is sloppy, hard shifting even after a fluid and screen job. The clutch wear surfaces decrease in friction holding and become thin. This implies loose clutches and this implies poor shift quality.
Always change the fluid completely (including the oil cooler, note it is thermostatically controlled) and clean the magnets of all debris. Introduce new oil into the system and test again.
