Replacing the crankshaft position sensor and rechecking timing would be a good place to start.

SOURCE: Gearbox fault of Jaguar S Type

unfortunately when that code, and that gear box fault light comes on, its pretty much game over for the transmission. It only a matter of time before performance of the transmission gets worse and worse. BUT that transmission is VERY easy to replace, i would check out a few trustworthy independent shops to give you a better price! I am usually a die-hard dealership, having been working at this jaguar land rover dealership for the last 2 years, but you are pretty much for sure going to be a cheaper price on the labor and like i said it is a pretty easy task.

My only precaution MAKE SURE IF YOU GETTING A USED TRANSMISSION THAT YOU GET SOME TYPE OF WARRANTY ON IT. Too many times have I seen customers loose thousands of dollars paying someone to put a used engine or transmission and have it fail almost right away.

SOURCE: x-type jaguar automatic (gear box fault)

I have a 2002 X type (2 litre. done 44000 miles), dash showed gear box problem, (red circle light up). I pulled out and turned the engine off. 5 minutes later turned the engine on. The engine running but the car would not drive either in drive or reverse. Turned the engine off again and on the car driving but not much power. The care is taken to the Jag. dealer and told is misfiring + some gear box faults. Suggesting to change some coils and see (cost about £200+). also possible need to change the gear box costing about £2500+. Please advice. Shall I go ahead with the repair? Should I part exchange.

How to know timing is off on a 2000 jag s-type


Timing can be tricky on any vehicle. Most times they all show the same characteristics. It's been my experience that when timing is off one of two things will take place. Either the vehicle will turn over and over and over (meaning the engine) but won't start or if it does start in will run really rough instead of smoothly. If your Jag s-type is running roughly it doesn't necessarily mean the timing is off. could be bad spark plugs, wires, coil packs, or could even be a fuel related problem. I would go with the cheapest solution first and if that doesn't fix it I would work my way through the other mentioned issues working toward the more expensive as a last resort.

2000 Jaguar xj8 turn over won't start stability control fail light on.


the stab light comes on if the battery is low because you are cranking the engine your aj26 v8 engine may have a common problem for cars up to that model/year with worn nicosil coated bores ie. low compression check the vin no. at your jag dealer you can get it started by removing the spark plugs and putting a egg cup of engine oil in to each of the cylinders the first thing to do is to check for fault codes using a obd code reader for a clue followed by a compression test

200 jag stype no start anti-theft light flashing


Have you another key and fob ?

Try lock/unlock cycle with new key + fob. Your key may be corrupted.

Try also just unlocking the car with the key (not the fob) as soon as you unlock the door put the key in the ignition immediately and see if the car starts.

If you have your radio code it may be worth trying a total reset (leave the car unlocked) disconnect the battery and leave for 20 mins. then reconnect, most systems will then reboot and this MAY help?
Failing all the above it looks like dealer time - more ££ss

good luck !

Ive turned of my jag in park mode, now i cant restart it


Does your dash light up to indicate you have a battery source or power? If yes you have power try starting it in neuatral or in another gear. If it starts in neatrual maybe your selector going bad. If it starts in other gears repair the shift selector. Three If no power indicated check fuses. four will motor crank or turn over if yes look for a drivability problem. If no final maybe bad ignition switch. Need to replace ignition switch. Probably time for service

Jaguar S Type V8 Auto 2000 no start


Check all your fuses first as it sounds like you shorted something out, did you turn the jag off before connecting the jump leads, if you did you will be ok but if you did not it is more than likely a fuse.
hope thishelps
