2001 S Type 3.0 V6 Sport. Auto transmission fault..


Recommended Posts

Hi, I have a 2001 3.0L V6 S Type and I have a problem with the auto box... when I place the trans in to D is does nothing? works fine in reverse though? I have carried out a diagnostic check using my friends Snap On computer and it had these fault codes..


P0500 vehicle speed input failed.

p0720 Output speed sensor no signal.

p0731 Gear 1 incorrect ratio.

p0733 Gear 3 incorrect ratio.


The ABS warning light is showing on the das and also came up with DSC fault and transmission fault..

I would be very grateful if anyone has any suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

Hi, I have only recently acquired the car from a friend of mines dad and as far as I am aware its been parked up for about 18 months, before it was parked up it had the transmission Oil and filter changed but still had issues, he also said that at the time it had a miss fire from one of the cylinders under the inlet manifold, the speedo didn't work and the abs light was on.. I've looked at a few posts on the internet that suggest these might be the issue not the transmission itself. but not sure which way to go with it really.. thanks for your reply and any help would be amazing!

These cars need a tip top battery,so my first investigation would be to make sure the battery was perfect.It may seem daft but with a problem battery all sorts of codes and warning lights seem to show on the S-type.

Also if you can reset the fault codes.

Best Regards

if you will be removing the manifold it might be worth changing all the plugs their and testing the coils as i think this is a time consuming job and would be worth carrying out all the maintenance so that it does not need removing again.

If it was me then i would replace the battery first,reset the fault codes and take it from there.

Are you able to reset the fault codes with the code reader yoy have.

I am not completely sure but you may possibly need the Jaguar Software to do this.

But as always try the less expensive route first.......hope it works out for you.

Hi, the transmission filter and fluid was replaced just before the previous owner parked it up around 2 years ago.. I have access to various different scanners including Jaguar IDS, the fault code that it keeps coming up with is to do with the vehicle speed sensor,its not an abs sensor but the sensor on the box, I have rung Bearmach and they say there are 2 on the box but im not sure which one to change? any ideas?

thanks for the reply,

Hi Ian, you'll find lots of helpful people on this forum, I am pretty new myself.. from what I have read on other posts it may be a problem with the cables between shifter and the box, you can adjust it but would probably create your own post on here and ask for help. sorry I cant be of more assistance...
