Sounds like you have a auto gearbox fluid leak and is running low on fluid needs topping up and the leak fixed try and locate the leak area if its under the box and its a mercedes unit the wiring connector seals are favorite if its a zf box the prob with fluid leaks are not norm a problem unless the oil cooler has been damaged by a stone chip its behind the front bumper liner but which either way the fluid is more than likely low if you keep driving it you may damage the gearbox

SOURCE: GEARBOX FAULT MESSAGE for jaguar s 2001

Replace transmission and sell quickly. I bought 2001 s-type in October 2008. I have not been able to drive it. 1st thing was gearbox fault message which turned out to be transmission. Ford can rebuild cheaper. Next thing to happen was all seals needed replacing. Then all coils needed to be replaced. Coils keep going out. Needs new computer which has 8 year/80000 mile warranty on, but Jag would not honor ($3000). Needless to say my pretty jag sits in the driveway. Had to get another car. Went with Lincoln LS V8. GREAT car!

SOURCE: Gearbox fault of Jaguar S Type

unfortunately when that code, and that gear box fault light comes on, its pretty much game over for the transmission. It only a matter of time before performance of the transmission gets worse and worse. BUT that transmission is VERY easy to replace, i would check out a few trustworthy independent shops to give you a better price! I am usually a die-hard dealership, having been working at this jaguar land rover dealership for the last 2 years, but you are pretty much for sure going to be a cheaper price on the labor and like i said it is a pretty easy task.

My only precaution MAKE SURE IF YOU GETTING A USED TRANSMISSION THAT YOU GET SOME TYPE OF WARRANTY ON IT. Too many times have I seen customers loose thousands of dollars paying someone to put a used engine or transmission and have it fail almost right away.

The engine light and gearbox fault code has come across my dash, and my car was riding a bit rough (sluggish)****. I went and got a diagnostic test and it said to be the catalyst convertors. I went to get that fixed and the engine light has removed itself but the gearbox code is still on. And it don't ride as rough jus acouple of jerks here and there. Does anyone have any suggestions?

Jaguar s type 03 gearbox fault warning light on dashboard, gear stuck in 4, reverse engages ok, what could it be?


sounds like it is in get you home because of gearbox failure if its the early box with metal sump check selector cable adjustment it critical as the J gate micro switches and the linear switch on the side of the gearbox have to be in sync with each other. on the other hand if it is the later gearbox with plastic sump, which i suspect it will be, check it has not lost some of its oil due to leaking sump, common problem! other wise check fault codes in transmission control module, any codes relating to incorrect gear ratio means internal falure most times

Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

2004 jaguar has light on for gearbox fault


Is it an automatic box and do you actually have a fault or is it just the indicator light?
If it's an automatic box, then check that your alternator is providing the correct amount of power output and or that the battery is charging. A low current will induce spurious readings and result in this fault indication.
