2008 Jaguar S-Type Question: How do you get the gear shift out of park?



desertchimera, 3.0L V6, Lubbock, TX, February 10, 2014, 06:58

The gear shift is stuck in park, I have already done the following, I have check underneath for a loose bracket...all is tight, pulled the cover from the shifter, there is not a gear shift unlock mechanism. Rock the vehicle back and forth. looked a various fuses that could been the culprit, no luck...unplug the battery for a computer reset, didn't work. I was driving fine, went and filled up at the gas station and it wouldn't release from park and had to tow home.

    Start by checking ALL fuses!!!!! If you have a test light use that for checking them. Don't just look, test ALL the fuses!! Do the brake lights work??

    ok, here is what I think what happen, I took the car through a car wash and something got wet....I tried everything that I could look at and do from researching everything on the web, Went to take pictures and post on the jaguarforums and the shifter is now working....Before it didn't light up. now its lighting up. I am about to put everything back together now. I am thinking it could be the sleeve on the transmission that got wet since there are multiple wires that lead into it. What are your thoughts
