Question about 1995 Jaguar XJ6

1 Answer

Clicking sound Everytime I press on the brake pad there is a clicking sound by the shifter. I removed the cover of the shifter consore and press the brake and I saw this metal hammering base of shifter. Someone told me that I have a bad chip that I need to replace. Where is this located. Chip costs (as I was told $50.00; when called a Jaguar repair shop the mechanic told me that, yes, it is the chip. But labor would cost $200.00. Is there anyone where this chip is located? Thank you in advance.

This is the shifter release it is supposed to m ove when you press pedal. so you cannot shift without brake applied if it has gotten loder than should the there is probably a pad missing.

What keeps a car from shifting from park


Does that require a brake pedal push? Maybe your linkage for that is sloppy.

I have a 2006 pacifica. I have no brake lights (left right). When I press the brake pedal, I hear a click sound coming from under the shifter area. Weird?


No not weird that clicking sound is your shift lock it's supposed to make that sound first check
Brake light fuse if that is good check brake light switch witch is mounted under the dash above the brake pedal somtimes they can unadjust them selves and the switch doesn't hit the pedal or it is just bad and if that's not the problem it's the module that you will have to take to a repair shop

Car won't shift from neutral to park


replacing transmission?????nonsence!!! i can tell this is an automatic trans setup, not standard. lets start here. put car in PARK and turn key on so the dash comes on. do not start car. step on the brake pedal several times slowly and listen for audible sound coming from the shifter area. you should hear clicking sound everytime yo uhit the brake. that is the shift lock solenoid releasing the mechanism indside of the shifter assembly so you can get the car out of park and into gear. you may have an issue with the shifter assembly it self. if no clicking sound is heard, it will need to be diagnosed fruther. the solenoid can not be purhcsed separatelly. shifter assembly only. start with the listening procedure and let me know.

With car running The shift leaver willnot come out of park


When pressing the brake pedal, you should hear a click at the shifter, as the shift-lock mechanism is releasing the lock on the shifter. If the sound isn't heard, there may be a defective shift lock solenoid (which may require replacing entire shifter assembly, depending upon model). Otherwise you may need to remove access cover at top of shifter to insert a screwdriver to push down on the bypass latch so you can shift out of park. You will also need to push down on latch to go back to park.

The shifter is locked and engine turns on but can not shift from park


1st, have someone step on brake pedal while you check to see if your brake lights are working, if yes proceed to step 2, if not check your brake light fuse(Left side of dash fuse#20- 10amp)IF fuse is good replace brake light switch on brake pedal. 2nd Step (brake lights ok) Turn key on engine off, press and release brake pedal several times slowly, listen for a click and and pulse on shifter handle. IF yes you have a shifter malfunction replace shifter assembly. IF no, inspect shift interlock solenoid and or relace solenoid and cable. You should see a small access cover about the size of a peanut around base faceplate of shifter assembly use small screwdriver and remove cover, use screw driver to press button underneath plate and release shifter into reverse and drive gears(this is manual overide) if you need to move vehicle in the meantime.

No breaklights and stuck in park


replace the stop lamp switch. It's right behind the brake pedal and it should take care of your problem. Double check it by listening for a clicking sound at the shifter when you step on the brake to release it from park. If you don't hear the clicking sound then its the stop lamp switch. If you do hear the clicking sound then you have two problems. The stop lamp switch and the shifter assembly. There is also a manual override for the shifter located right behind the shifter. Its the little spring loaded flap. Stick a pencil in there to release the shifter.

4.2l. Why is shifter stuck?


With the car started press on the brake pedal. Listen carefully for a "Click" sound coming from under the gear shift cover. If you do not hear one you will need to test the brake pedal switch, if you hear a click then most likely the lock somehow became disconnected from the solenoid. Remove the shifter cover and the assemble is can be seen for troubleshooting and repair.

Clicking sound on wheels when i press the brake


Check your discs and brake pads. You could have your pads worn down that far that you are getting metal to metal contact when you apply the brakes. If that is the case, replace the discs and pads.

Gear shift


Do you hear a clicking sound coming from the shifter area everytime you hit the brake pedal, while the vehicle is is "P" park position?? There should be a clicking sound right by the shifter. That's the shifter lock solenoid. If that's not clicking you will not get the car out of park. Let me know what you found.
