Jaguar Repair Problems? Ask a Jaguar Repairs Expert.
So the engine will not crank, the shifter is not illuminated and it will not move out of park with the ignition on and foot on the brake? Any warning lights or messages on?
Have you ever had the vehicle scanned for the stored fault codes? When you say no ignition meaning the engine will not crank at all but the vehicle will power up normally and all accessories come on? Do you have a digital multimeter we can use to perform testing? Did you check the power cable I described in that post you saw?
It looks like we have a network problem possibly with the ABS module or TCM. We need to be able to read all powertrain, chassis and body modules. There should be faults stored. This cable runs along the passenger side of the console. Sometimes you can reach up in the corner to disengage the carpet plastic fir tree fastener and pull down the caret to see this. Without the risk of tearing the carpet remove the console and you will see this connections.
Usually when these transmission fail it is electronic within the TCM. Usually if it was a communication fault there will be a code stored. Yes autologic and Launch should make tools that can communicate with all the modules but they are costly.
Ok let me know how you make out.
