Hi Colin,


I take it that you have the standard auto box as fitted by Jaguar with the "J" gate change on the left side of the gear shift which allows you to select a particular gear.


I have never come across this issue before, and I am not an engineer.  Some members have found that a gearbox issue has been cured by a gearbox oil change, not withstanding the fact that Jaguar say the gearbox oil is for life.  


There could be others with more expertise than me who will also give suggestions.
