    Hi,

    I have the exact same problem. It drove perfect and then all of a sudden it went to limp home mode and shifted very hard.

    This just happened to me tonight. The problem seemed to kick in when I hit reverse (R) and/or Drive. I started limping home, then restarted the engine, threw the shift straight to 4 (not D), and everything seemed OK. In the driveway, I tested the gears, and everything seemed fine. When I took the care around the block, the same problem kicked in again, and I had to limp back to the driveway. The engine was running really hot. No sign of leaks.

    Same, problem . . . same time of the month. Hmm . . .

    2002 X-Type 3.0 Sport suddenly flashes "Engine System Failure Gearbox Failure and DSC System Failure" then car seem to go into Limp Mode.



    Turning off ignition and back on seems to have corrected this. Any permanent solution as to the cause?

Was the cruise control on? [2003 x] this happens to me when I use the cruise control to slow down or accelerate. just setting the cruise for one speed seems to be ok, but if I use the cruise button to change speed, it goes into limp mode rather than downshift correctly. the japanesse transmission was meant to be used, no kid gloves needed. when the pedal is down, the transmission hummms lovely

I have a jaguar s type 2000 it writes gearbox fault and is in limp mode funny the fan is noisy to,please help


You must have a check engine light on in your dash. You first need to pull up the code. I will assume your trans is an automatic. If so, when your trans goes into limp mode, if you stop , shut off your motor, and start again, does your car run OK again, till the next time it goes into limp mode. If so you have a bad trans solenoid. Sometimes this solenoid is on the outside of a trans and sometimes it's on the inside. If inside you would have to drop the pan, and valve body, because it's on top of the valve body. The fan is a separate issue. GOOD LUCK FRIEND.

Mercedes suffer with the radiator whereby the gearbox oil and engine coolant leak in together and cause gearbox to stay in lower gears like limp mode this will also give incorrect readings on coolant so worth getting both gearbox and coolant checked i beleive they call this a glycol test??

Transmission locked up, felt like it was stuck in second or third gear. not shifting. shut engine off and restarted , shifting properly now. what causes this.


It was a temporary fault that put the car into limp mode (a safeguard operating condition designed to protect the transmission in case of serious failure). Sometimes a transient fault can occur, and the car goes into limp mode just to be sure it's not for real. Shutting off and restarting the car is the usual way to clear the fault and return the car to normal operation - if the problem was real, the car would've stayed in limp mode after restart, or gone into limp once you started driving again. I wouldn't sweat this one, since it went right back to normal operation.
