First time user, I have a stype v8 4litre 2001 model. Jaguar. Started miss firing. Had all coils changed car was fine, gear box lighT came on after a while, was intermittent But then stayed on all the

I will assume your cylinder misfire issue is gone
& all of the Emission Monitors run & all scan tool
data is okey,except for the transmission

I will also assume your continuing to drive the car,
knowing you have a transmission problem

I will also tell you that being a 2001,give mileage 150,000
plus, you have a failed transmission

I can be more specific & more detailed for the reasons why,
but all we can do here & most likely if we had the car,is to
pull trans & rebuild it, after some testing of the systems

If the trans has just been rebuilt & acting up,take it back

If your just dealing with a failed shift solenoid or sensor issue,
there is no way we can help in this format without a vehicle

Does it go into failsafe & other things

Once you drive with a trans issue, you ruin it in a few miles
or a few days

2002 x type jaguar, shows "gear box fault" will not start

Then why are you here,so we can guess at
the battery issue ?

You always start with the battery in all testing
situations, regardless of what your told

If you working on suspension,brakes or tire work,
then you forget the battery, obviously

Once you have a good battery,then your check for
OBD Fault Codes

Your car won't start,problem,maybe just the battery

The trans issue,once your past the battery & the motor
runs,you check all data,road test & then get on with module
codes & the trans problem, if there is one

A failed battery will leave lots of wrong info in the systems

Transmission fault yellow warning light on 2001 Jaguar Vanden Plas

get a rebuilt or used transmission. Jaguar says you don't have to change trans fluid because it should last the "life of the trans" which means it will die just like everything else. Fluid change will do no good. I just went thru this.

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.

DSC fault on display,car stops complete electrical failure.

Hi Jagman

I suspect this could be your battery at fault.

Get it heavy discharge tested first.

Good Luck.
