Question about 2003 Jaguar X-Type
Hi, I have a 2002 x-type jaguar (3 litre), and the dash is showing gearbox fault, the car does not start. HELP!!! I have a 2003 Jaguar X type and the Gear Box Fault message comes up on dash. What is going on with this car?
I have a 2002 X type (2 litre. done 44000 miles), dash showed gear box problem, (red circle light up). I pulled out and turned the engine off. 5 minutes later turned the engine on. The engine running but the car would not drive either in drive or reverse. Turned the engine off again and on the car driving but not much power. The care is taken to the Jag. dealer and told is misfiring + some gear box faults. Suggesting to change some coils and see (cost about £200+). also possible need to change the gear box costing about £2500+. Please advice. Shall I go ahead with the repair? Should I part exchange.

In reference to the X-type "GearBox Fault”
That was the only solution to the problem after been tow however.
Going forward, What could be a solution once I replace the battery and continue to receive the "GearBox Fault” message?
I hope it isn’t a control Module or even possibly a transmission, ought…

You are getting water in the Engine Control Module (passenger side under the dash on US models. The culprit is usually the windshield wiper cowl (plastic panel the wiper arms poke through) isn't sealed to the bottom of the windshield. You probably see a big gap on the passenger side between it and the windshield. Water intrudes, runs down wetting the cabin pollen filter and eventually runs down the wires and into the ECM. When it is sufficiently dry it will start and act normal again. I took the additional step of installing a flexible piece of plastic 2 feet long that is "domed" over the filter underneath the cowl to deflect water away from the filter. If that doesn't keep water out I will come up with and try yet another mod, perhaps attaching another plastic section above the ECM wiring like a lean-to roof that lets water shirt off and harmlessly fall away without getting the wiring wet.
