1999 Jaguar XJR Q&A
1999 Jaguar XJR Question: Has anyone fixed issues with the Gear Box? See the message Gear Box Fault?
I put the car into Park after driving and when you go back to start the car the car will start but the car will not move out of Park and go into reverse. You either have to wait for the car to "reset itself" to move into reverse, tow the car to home and wait, or we have seen where we "jerk" the car back and forth with two people in the front seat and the car goes back into gear and then goes into Reverse. No issues with starting the car and no other issues with the car. I had the tranmission rehauled last year (due to the car hit a pot hole and it damages the transmission) and also went back for them to re-look at this as a possible problem. When this happens the light on the dash says "Gear Box Fault". This message does not always show when this happens. I really need to know how to fix this. Please help me if you have any ideas. 1999 Jaguar XJR with 78,000 miles. - Jag2011
This is not a DIY project. Take it back to the shop that did the work and have the modules checked. Neutral safety switch and brake light switch can ruin your day as well. Are all the brake lights working? These cars were plagued with electrical gremlins. - Hal...
