Can you provide me with your vehicle details and also a short recap of the problem you are experiencing right now?

Steering tilt control is fuse #8 - 5 A , on the passenger side heel fusebox

I would check them all on both sides to be sure about the interior lighting issue

It drives fine just have to manually unlock the shifter
Jaguar Mechanic: BrennanB319,

Could be from a missing signal from the brake switch too ... make sure all the fuses in both fuse boxes are ok ...

All were good as far as I could tell
Jaguar Mechanic: BrennanB319,

Ok, what about the brake switch ... Also this could be the little motor in the shifter assembly who doesn't respond to the brake switch signal ...

Ask Your Own Jaguar Question
Customer reply replied 8 months ago
Brake switch seems to be ok I'm thinking it's the motor not respondingThe car went into limp mode before I replaced the crankshaft seal I cleared the codes and the car runs great just wont shift out of park since clearing the codes
Jaguar Mechanic: BrennanB319,
 replied 8 months ago

Ok, i would suggest testing the Shift lock motor ...
