Question about 2003 Jaguar Super
My mother has a s-type 2001 w/ 39k. 1 year ago she took it in because the shifter was stuck and wouldnt move out of Park. Now, 7 days out of warranty-it is banging loud-and she is advised that the transmission is gone! $4,000.00 to fix. She had it in a few months ago and they put it up on the lift and did not hear the noise. They told her out of warranty-out of luck. I feel she has some recourse. It is and has been a problem-they told her if she considers a new Jag, then maybe that will help her cause! This came from Jaguar Corp. Help! Opinions?

SOLUTION for x-type Transmission fault error
I had this very same problem. My 02 x-type would get transmission fault code and then shut down into limp mode. If I turned the key off, shifted gears a few times and waited I could start up again and sometimes drive for several miles before the code came back. GOOD NEWS, I thought maybe the vechicle was overheating the tranny or something like that and then after it cooled down I could drive some more. I discovered that my gas station had switched to the 10% ethanol addative about the same time I started experiencing "strange" mechanical issues. I decided to try switching my gas to the non-ethanol gas from a Phillips 66 station that advertised 100% REAL GAS. The problems mysteriously dissappeared!!!! Remember that you MUST use PREIUM gas as per the MFR. Well the 02 3.0 can't handle the 10%ethenol in it's gas. Something else you can try if you can't find REAL GAS is to use the OCTANE boost from your local auto parts store. Pay close attention to which brand you buy since some can harm your fule system. As a side note; I also own an 04 s-type with a 3.0 under the hood. It looks different from my 3.0 and has no problem running on the ethenol added gasoline. However after the horrible mechanical experience I had with the ethenol in the x-type, I now use 100% real gas in both. I have been transmission fault free for 5 months now.

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.

Have you contacted jaguar to be sure the car is wired?
Just because there is a phone symbol on the stereo means nothing.
They all have that.
Go to Jaguars web site and email them with you cars VIN number and ask if the car has been prewired.
they will get back to you in about in 2 days and let you know.
If it has been prewired you can get it set up for a price, if not, you are out of luck.

S-Type was stuck in reverse but the gear stick was stuck in park. After taking
the console apart trying to figure out why the shift lock wouldn't open...three
hours later I got under the car and discover that one of the two bolts that held
the transmission cable in place was missing...I replaced it and that was all it
