I have a Jaguar XF 3 l desiel 10 plate I had a huge engine

Customer Question

Hi I have a Jaguar XF 3 l desiel 10 plateI had a huge engine failure when the piston came out the side of the engineThis happened at fairly low revsHowever when this happened I switched ignition of and the gear selector went park in the down positionWhen the recovery came I put theignition on to put into neutral but it failed to rise and we ended up having to use the mechanical overideThe gear selector has never given a problem before the engine failure and the car as not moving when the failure occurredThe car now has new engine fitted with no fault codes showing
However the selector will not rise and the engine will not start just a click noise heardBattery is charged any ideas to what it could beIs the a fuse or relay to checkMany thanksBest regardsBob

Customer: Battery good it went into park when engine failed and the when ignition on to tow on truck it would not raise up and had to use manual release to put into neutral all connections are good air vents open but selector will not rise up
JA: What year is your XF?
