Question about 2004 Jaguar S Type

1 Answer

My 2004 jaguar s type is stuck in gear. The shifter is actually in the park position however the reverse light is on. So my car is actually in reverse so that means I cant start it. Is there any solution to this problem?

I turned on my 2004 Jaguar S type car and left in on to warm up, when i put it on drive, it wouldnt move I tried reverse and wouldn't move, When I put it on neutral It sounded like it jumped and like it...


The J gate is off and needs to be reset. This requires an experience mechanic. The J gate is located underneath the battery on top of the tranny. Turn the ignition to the on position, place the hand brake on, and shift the tranny in neutral. loosen the outer bolt to the J gate shift plate. It should be under some tension and will release to the proper position. tighten the bolt again and start the car. It will only start in neutral so don't worry about it jumping. When the car starts, you know it is in the right position. Run the shifter to park, reverse, drive to make sure all the gears are in their position. Readjust if necesarry.

Car is stuck in Reverse


It sounds like a bad shift indicator switch on the shifter. Kind of a pain in the *SS to get to those console's get real brittle.

Hope you get it in gear!!!

Jaguar S type will not move out of park


good posibility is brake light switch. this sits up behind your brake pedal. if you can move gear shifter with key just in between off and acc put shifter in position just between drive and neutral or park and reverse see if you can get it into gear from there if so that is most likely issue

I have a jaguar xj8 and the gear got stuck in park ,and I can't put it in reverse or drive. How can I fix this problem


Most likely the lock out switch at the brake pedal is at fault, because in order to put it in in to any gear you have to step on the brake first ! Their is a switch located which prevents you put it in gear with out stepping on the brake pedal, so check this switch first.

Gear locks when i park on even a slight incline


ALWAYS engage the Parking Brake BEFORE putting car into "Park". When you want to get out of "Park", put your foot on the brake pedal, move gear shifter into desired gear, THEN take down Parking Brake. If you get stuck (gear shifter doesn't move), then try the "rocking" method (recruit 1 or 2 folks to push your car from behind while you try to move gear shifter into desired gear). Good luck!

HAVE SOMEONE GO BEHIND THE CAR AND CHECK AND MAKE SURE THE BRAKE LIGHTS ARE ON, IF THEY DON'T WORK THEN THERE IS NO POWER TO THE BRAKE PARK INTER-LOCK SOLENOID AND YOU CAN NOT DIS-ENGAGE PARK. IF THEY DON'T WORK CHECK THE FUSE, IF IT IS OK REPLACE THE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH.
