Hello and welcome to justanswer.com

 

Can I have the last six digits of your VIN? How does the transmission shift and the vehicle drive?

Customer reply replied 12 years ago
I'm sorry it's an x type Jaguar. Prior to the gear box fault lighting up it was shifting fine with no problem. The last six numbers of the vin are C42976

When the gearbox fault warning comes on the TCM (Transmission Control Module) has detected a fault and stored a fault code. It can be electronic or mechanical. The fault code will need to be read with a Jag scan tool. You can try your local pepboys or autozone as they will usually scan for codes at no charge. Their scan tool will only be able to read the codes in the ECM (Engine Control Module) but sometimes the fault is stored in there as well. On your vehicle I see issues with mechanical failures inside the transmission or the control module itself as water sometimes leaks into the module connector.
