Your car is a AWD.. I don't recomend Dually truck to tow it. With a dually 2 tires will stay on the road. and you have no choice to desengage the AWD. system.
Bucause you will damage the Transfercase. and made the transsmission. work dry.
The best way is a Flat bed.
Is just my suggestion.

Thank you for use fixya..

SOURCE: My 2003 Jaguar S-Type has a faulty Reverse Park

This is a sensor fault. The easiest way to locate wich sensor is faulty is to get up close to the sensors when the car is in reverse gear (engine off) with the ignition on and put your thumb nail on the sensor face as this will amplify the ticking noise that can be heard from the sensors. No tick indicates a sensor fault.

To disconnect the system will just give you the same problem with the constant tone unless you disconnect the park aid module wich is located in the boot of the vehicle on the left hand side behind the carpet trim. Beware that the handbrake module is there so ensure that you are looking at the right module (it will say on it)

Sensors are not expensive unless you need to have them painted to body coulor as they come in black. Easy push in/out fitment from the behind the bumper. Corner sensors can be replaced with the bumper in situ but centre sensors require the bumper to be removed.

Hope that helps

2004 x-type jaguar stuck in park after tail light problem . Simple brake light replacement turned into a nightmare. Scared to have the car towed.Can,t afford to have a jaguar tech come out, We're screwed....

Check the brake light fuse. If you blew a fuse for a brake light, you won't have power to the shift interlock which allows you to move the shifter.

I can't get my Gear Shift our of Park. The engine

Common problem.

In future, when on put it in park only AFTER the handbrake is applied. Ideally, foot brake, shift to N, apply handbrake, release foot brake, shift to park.

If the incline isn't steep have someone push car uphill while you gently move gearshift shift out of park. If its a steep hill, call a tow truck and move to a level surface. The parking pawl in the transmission becomes groved over time (and sticks) unless you use the handbreak as described.

I have a 2004 X Type Jaguar, The problem is:


This is a common issue with the Jaguar X-type and the S-type too.

If you are parked on an incline the vehicle can get stuck in park.

You will need to rock the car back and forth while someone disengages park, so when you park on any type of incline, apply the handbrake first, before you select park.

Hope I have been of help.

Good Luck !

2003 s-type jaguar

I, as well as a guy I work with both drive s-types. He had this problem with his.

The problem is with a cable that runs from the shifter to the transmission. There is a bracket which holds the cable in place. This bracket is prone to coming loose and when that happens, your s-type won't shift out of neutral. Simply resecure the bracket and cable. Be sure to use loctite on the bracket screws so it won't happen again.
