Customer Question
Hi I have a...

Hi I have a 2000 xk8 16,000 miles mint condition..... Wometimes when i turn the key to start i get a series og messsages on the dash ending with shift gear disabled .

Mechanic's Assistant: Tell me a bit more about what's going on so he can help you best.

Actually it says gear box Fault. It will not turnover. wait for a day make sure battery is fully charged , it works and starts. it did this yesterday morning I put the charger on came back home from work and turned the the key to start all systems turned on and the car did not turn over.

Mechanic's Assistant: Lots of things can cause problems with the battery. The Jaguar Mechanic will know what to do. Are you hoping to fix this yourself?

If I can ... Jaguar dealer has no clue.

Mechanic's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Jaguar Mechanic should know about your Jaguar?

Yes sometimes I open the fuse box and remove and reinsert fuses .. it hen sometimes works immediately........ did that today car did not turn over.

When the vehicle does not start it does not even crank correct? Will the shifter release from park with the ignition ON and foot on the brake?

The car does NOT turn over and yes the shifter does release from Park into drive etc with my foot in the brake.
Customer reply replied 6 years ago
I have figured out the problem and have temporarily fixed it. Tomorrow with more time estimate of one half hour I will be able to fix it easily.
