My S type, 2002 2.5 l is stuck in Park. Believe it could be a faulty switch by the brake pedal or a problem with the J gate. Can someone help??

The s-types have a lot of issues sticking in park when the car is parked on an incline, sometime you can rock the vehicle and release it from park.
They had many issues with the J-gate assemblys and also the shifter cables. If the caris on an incline and you are able to remove it from park then in future you can apply the handbrake before putting the vehicle in park and that will take care of the issue rather than spending tons of money with the stealer. Do not force the shifter as there is a plastic piece which is part of the j-gate that will break and you will then need to purchase a j-gate assembly

My 1995 jaguar starts but i cant get the shift to work


with the ignition on press the brake can you her aclick from the gear lever area i suspect not the lever is more than likely stuck in park the soleniod that releases the gear lever
is not being powered the most likely cause is the brake light switch on the brake pedal you can get it out of park by removing the little plug near the gear lever and pushing something like your key in to the hole to manually release the gear lever there is also a relay under the j gate that may be faulty/dislodged or the release soleniod itself faulty

Clint, you might want to check your break switch to see if your button is stuck. It is right above your brake pedal. The pedal led actually hits the button of the switch. See if you can loosen it.

The gear is getting stuck... i press on brakes and when car is in park it is hard to put on reverse.. the car runs great...


In all probability the brake sensor on the pedal is starting to work erratically. This sensor sends a signal to the shifter gate, and the gate will not open unless the brake pedal is depressed. I had it happen to me, and the only solution until i replaced the sensor was to hit the brake over and over until the stop light worked (You can check it while looking at the 3rd stop light in the rear view mirror). If the stop lights work, the shifter gate should allow the shifter to move out of park. This sensor/ switch is located about 3 inches above the brake pedal, and it is easily recognizable by the cable attached to it.

Cannot shift from park


If you are really stuck you can remove the shifter cover and you will see the solenoid, at the base of the solenoid is a manual override - press this and you can move the shifter - then do not return it to park until you have fixed the problem ( leave in neutral) Hope this helps - good luck.

Brake lights stay on


I believe this is most likely a faulty or stuck brake light switch. The lights are actuated when depressing the brake pedal thus closing the circuit in the switch usually attached to the upper end of the pedal near the hinge.

Gear Lever stuck in park??


this is because there is a switch on the brake pedal that is connected to a solinoid that lock the gear selector in park .
you need to A : check the switch on the brake pedal is working this may only need to adjust the distance between the pedal stop and the pedal its self.
B: The solinoid on the gearbox should click when the switch on the brake pedal is closed or opened
if not the solinoid on the gear box could be sticking or could be faulty

hope this helps
