It is stuck in...

It is stuck in Park and will not start.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have brake lights? Have any trouble codes popped up?

Brake lights yes, the only code that popped up when it happened was about a headbeam I have a headlight out

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Jaguar?

2005 Vanden Plaus

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I was forwarded a video of an 03 jag where a guy manually reset the gear shift with a screwdriver I am not doing it right I guess

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

When I pulled into my drive, put her into park it rolled back a little and then stopped. At that point I couldn't get her out of gear or start. That is when the code about the headlight came on

Unfortunately I am unavailable for a call at the moment but we can continue here til then.We most likely have loose shifter cable bolts. We need to jack up the driver side of the vehicle and look to see if the two 8mm bolts are holding the cable to the transmission.

I don't have any way to do this.
Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 4 years ago
Ok if the cable bolts are in fact loose then you will not be able to move it manually with that lever on the side of the shifter like you were trying. We can keep trying that just in case. On the driver side is that lever that needs to be moved as you move the shifter out of park.

It is on the drivers side? Okay, do I push in or left or right?
Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Got it started and into reverse and neutral but it won't go into driveOkay, I was able to start her up once and into Reverse. Neutral and Drive do not highlight in red and can't get her to move forward
Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 4 years ago
Ok then it does sound like the cable bolts are loose

Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Is that considered major repair?
Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 4 years ago
Not at all. Just minimal labor and cost of the bolt if needed.

Customer reply replied 4 years ago
Would you recommend taking it to a Jag dealer or a reputable mechanic? This car has never been an issue until this. No repairs at all!
Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 4 years ago
Any reputable mechanic should be able to do this
