When the lights on the shifter go out is that when the warning comes on? Can I have the last six of your VIN?
Thanks. I was going to say that we may have a problem with the throttle but since we lose gear shift illumination this may be a problem with the communication network and I actually have seen of few instances of the gear shift illumination module causing this. To be sure we will need to have the vehicle scanned for the stored fault codes. A Jag factory tool is needed to do this but we can try a generic OBD II available at your local parts store to see if we can read any faults.
Ok sounds good.
Ok looks like we may have a problem with the transmission rotory switch causing this. That is the switch on the actual transmission. Another possibility is the D4 micro switch inside the shifter or the shifter cable itself.
Hard to say without catching the problem in the act while monitoring the sensors. What you can do is see if we can get the problem to occur when moving the shifter from D to 4 as this would be the D 4 switch
Ok it is most likely a bad rotory switch on the transmission. Try driving without engaging cruise control and see what happens.
