GEARBOX FAULT MESSAGE

I HAVE A 2001 JAGUAR S TYPES WITH ABOUT 94K MILES ON IT A FEW WEEK AGO I GOT THE "GEARBOX FAULT" MESSAGE. WHEN THE LIGHT COMES ON IT SEEM AS IF THE CARS START TO DOWNSHIFT AND THE RPM GO HIGH AND IT;S LIKE THE CAR IS TRYING TO MAKE ME SLOW DOWN. AFTER TAKING IT TO MY MECHANIC HE SAYS THE MESSAGE IS THE PRESSURE CONTROL SOLENOID MALFUNCTION AND THE EXACT AREA OF THE PROBLEM IS UNKNOW UNTIL HE GOES INSIDE THE CASE. HE ALSO SAID TO TURN THE CAR OFF AND IT WILL RESET AND DRIVING WOULD GO BACK TO NORMAL. IT DOES BUT I'M IN A JAG AND SHOULDN'T HAVE TO TUNR MY CAR OFF A STOP LIGHT AND TURN IT BACK ON IT'S EMBRASSING. MY QUESTION HOW EXSTENSIVE WILL THE WORK BE TO HAVE THE PROBLEM FIXED OR WILL IT BE MORE COST EFFECTIVE OF REPLACE THE TRANNY WITH A REBUILT OR USED ONE?

    when i was driving...i got a transmission fault message. the vehicle was cruising at 65 mph with a little skip. I stopped the car and restareted and the message went away but returned about two hours later. I have a 2001 s-type 4.0 with 160,000 miles. Needs a coil packed replaced which is causing the skip. What's up with the message "transm fault"

The transmission model in your car is a 5R55N which is manufactured by the Ford motor company.There are currently 3 different modles of the 5R55,including also the W and S models.The Pressure Control Solenoid is a part of,the solenoid block.The solenoid block is mounted just inside the transmission pan,and can be replaced with a new one to see if it fixes the problem.If the trans ultimately needs to be rebuilt,a new solenoid block would be installed on one of my rebuilds anyways.If the solenoid block doesn't fix the problem,the trans would either have to be removed and rebuilt,replaced with a remanufactured unit,or replaced with a salvage yard,good used unit.Good luck.

My 4 litre S-type transmission failed at 55k miles with a number of solenoid codes evident. Sump removal followed to reveal debris etc and a full rebuild of box and converter was required. Cost was nearly £1600.

One transmission re builder said these units were "made from chocolate" and was their most frequent transmission needing attention. The six speed is not much better. A big thumbs down to Jaguar for marketing such an under developed and troublesome unit. Never again

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)

Unfortunately this code is actually a missed shift code usually between 2-3 gear....this can either be a Transmission Control Module failure or enternal failure of the clutched housing..This happened to my 2004 Vanden Plas...and it was a failure of the clutch....many things can cause this but mainly dirty fluid,which gets overheated.I recommend that you have the TCM adaptations removes to see if the module works properly..I hope that its not enternal..I just decided to replace the ****** with a used on with 54k miles....replaced the deals and put new fluid in for 3k....Its was around 4600.00 to rebuild so that was cheaper...Good luck and if I can help you in any other way let me know.

GEARBOX FAULT MESSAGE


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.

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!

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.
