Customer Question
I got information from another...
I got information from another Jag expert but a change has occured since we spoke.
I have a Jag s type V8. Last weekend it refused to go into gear. The expert stated there was nothing to do but bring to a shope and have a repair or part replaced.
On Sunday I started the car again and it went into gear immediately and there was no issue.
Along comes Tuesday and I drove it to the store. When I came out it started and engaged gears , reverse immediately. Then I was stopped by someone I know and the put the car in park(automatic reaction), When I tried to move off the car again stuck in park and will not move into gear.

Hello and welcome back to justanswer.com

Right now if the P on the shifter illuminated or blinking? Can you tell me if the brake lights are working?
Ask Your Own Jaguar Question
Customer reply replied 10 years ago

yes, the brake lights are on when I touch the pedal. The shifter blinks untiI put my foot on the brake. Sometimes, however, the P blinks for a second or two and then remains solid.

 

I saw in a forum that it may have to do with a fuse.If so,what fuse?

Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 10 years ago
Your problem is caused by a fault with the shifter assembly which will need to be replaced. Since the problem is intermittent it would not be a fuse issue.

Have you any tips on how to take it out of park?
Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 10 years ago
There is a manual release on the driver side of the shifter. you need to remove the woodgrain then you need to use a screwdriver and move the lever as you pull the shifter out of park.
