Why when I engage the manual side of the j gate of my xk8 1997 model does it lock in high gear with no reverse,and gearbox faultcomes on, it will correct itself if iturn the ignition off then on again, which enables me to use the drive side of the j gate as normal, the transmission has recently been reconditioned but was doing the same thing before it was done. could it be cable adjustment because on the manual side it does not feel positive to me.

Did you correctly diagnose the trans problem in the first place? I think you need to get hold of the installer and see what they did or get a proper workshop manual. Have you a Jag specialist you could talk to? Or is he the one who rebuilt your trans?

You said "Gearbox Fault" comes on. First thing is to hook up a scan code reader (they will do it free at many auto parts stores, e.g. AutoZone) and write down any/all codes. IIRC J-Gate itself only has 2 switches, one tells if you are in park, other is if you are on left (manual) side of gate or Right side (automatic/N/R/Park). I think rest is decided by position of shifter cable but unsure where electronics (switches) for this are - up by shifter, down in / on transmission, or some combination of the two. There is a great forum at JaguarForums.com. Good luck.

hi from uk could you please give a little more info ? what make/model car ? has this problem occured suddenly? has car been layed up off road some time prior to this unable to select gears ? this problem sounds very much like the clutch drive plate is either stuck to flywheel hence question above ? or it is sticking on primary/spigot shaft for some reason and failing to disengage drive to g/box? how does clutch pedal feel ? you might try selecting 2nd gear with clutch fully pressed and h/brake on then try starting engine if engine starts ?runs then put slight revs on and slip clutch a few times this may work if plate is sticking? if you come back with update may be able to advise further

I have 2005 chevy tahoe my doors all licks but my liftgate door with window stays open use to lock w all my doors? I havent check anytjing yet? I cant lock it.


Here is how it works !
Liftgate Locking Operation
The lift gate will lock any time the vehicle is shifted out of park on vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission and at vehicle speeds exceeding 5 kph with manual transmission. This happens in conjunction with auto door locks if enabled or independently of auto door locks if the feature is disabled. This ensures that the lift gate is locked anytime the vehicle is shifted out of park or when the vehicle is in motion.
The lift gate lock relay supply and coil sides receive a constant voltage through the battery voltage supply circuit and the ECC fuse. The normally closed contact is connected to ground and the control side is connected to the body control module (BCM). A lock function will occur when a door lock switch activation, keyless entry lock transmission, auto door lock function or a lift gate lock function has been received by the BCM. The BCM will then ground the control side of the lift gate lock relay. This energizes the relay and allows voltage to be applied to the lift gate lock actuator lock control circuit. Since the other side of the lift gate lock actuator is connected to the normally closed contacts of the door unlock relay to ground, the lift gate will lock. When an unlock function occurs the BCM will ground the control side of the unlock relay and the rear doors and lift gate will unlock.
The BCM also runs diagnostics on the lift gate lock relay control circuit and will set DTC B3825 as current and also send a Class 2 message to the DIC. The DIC will display REPLACE LIFTGATE FUSE to inform the driver that a fault has been detected in the lift gate lock circuit and that the lift gate is not locked. Faults that will set the DTC and cause the DIC to display the message could be any of the following:
?€¢
An open ECC fuse


?€¢
An open or short to ground in the lift gate lock relay battery positive voltage circuit


?€¢
A faulty lift gate lock relay


?€¢
An open or short to ground in the lift gate lock relay control circuit


?€¢
A short to ground in the lift gate lock actuator lock control circuit


?€¢
A faulty BCM

Was driving at45 mph when it sounded like it went into neutral so i put in third and it caught but i dont have drive is the transmission bad or could it be repaired fairly cheap


First thing you need to try is to check the transmission fluid level,do this when the car is up to normal temperature,put it in drive the reverse a few time then return it to park.Pull out the dip stick[drivers side just below the battery],wipe it of and put it back in,pull it out and see if it's full.If it's down at all,top it up with the proper transmission fluid and it should work normally,if not have a transmission shop look at it.

Car drives sluggish in drive.


There are quite a few things that will cause the car to drive "sluggish," so I won't try to tell you all of them without a more specific indication of the problem (does sluggish refer to way the engine runs or the way the car handles, for example), but:
Looking at the car from the front, the dip stick for the transaxle is down very low at the left hand side of the engine, close to being under the battery. It is normally yellow. Follow the large water hose that runs down next to your battery. The yellow dip stick handle is right along side of that hose (to the right of it) down low. It will either pull out or unscrew.
Ordinarily, if the transmission has a problem, your D4 light will start flashing. There is a way to read the codes, given the number of flashes and whether they are long or short, but it's involved. If your D4 starts flashing (beyond just coming on when you put it in gear) you probably should have it checked.
Usually, the way an engine runs has more to do with fuel/air mix or ignition than it does with the transmission. Have you, for example, changed your air filter recently? Your plugs? But there are many other things, as I said.
Hope this helps.

try checking your transmission oil (i had the same problem but after $30 it was fixed) it might had drained out. if your transmission oil is fine then consult a mechanic preferebly an automatic transmission specialist. may be your transmission needs a rebuild.
