Question about 2000 Jaguar S-Type
Jaguar S Type, March 2000, 94000 miles, started showing warning sign "gearbox fault" intermittently. No noise and running smooth but somtimes erratic gear changes. Jaguar dealer diagnosis shows code P0795. Told I need a new gearbox £3500, but car only worth £3000. Is there anything I can do? My father has exactly the same problem with his Jag. It's a 2000 S-type 3.0. Everything feels ok but it shocks a bit between the second and third gear. He's still in doubt what to do.

Unfortunately Jag dealers always say you need a new this/new that !!
I had a very similar problem on my first s type 1999. I was told it was a gearbox fault by jag dealer, but a local gearbox specialist disagreed. Unfortunately I went with the dealers advice and changed the gearbox - did not solve the problem - further investigation showed misfires on coil pack which confused the engine and therefore the gearbox. the gearbox was trying to compensate for engine power loss/fault - by changing gear eractically and then as the engine changed the gearbox was wrong so showed a fault !!
Anyway = short answer - get an independant GOOD gearbox specialist to test drive your car first ... really hope this helps as it will be a lot cheaper !!

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?

Fault code P0795 indicates a "fluid pressure solenoid C " problem, and the causes are: wiring poor connection, solenoid itself or the ECU.
Threre a lot of solutions for that best one is replace the gearbox
But first look for another mechanic and try to strat from gear box flush and changing the oil in it for synthetic one for instance.

I have a Jaguar S-Type 3.0SE 2000 model and has been driving nicely till I parked it. When I started to drive and shifted gear from park to drive there is a scritch sound and the car can't move. It just goes its rerves up. Can it be a gearbox fault even though no such indication on the dasboard indicator?

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.

Tips for a great answer:
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
Legend of Abbreviations. ABS Antilock brake system.TCS Traction control system, TCM Transmission control module, SRS Supplemental restraint system, BCM Body control module
