Reflashed Gearbox

Recommended Posts

While out yesterday i started to get the 'Lurch' symptoms as i had experienced on my previous s type,but this time not as bad but i thought i would sort it before it got worse.

So i plugged in my Mongoose and carried the reflash which takes around 30 mins.

I didn't have time to road test and put it through its learning mode only a quick drive around the block.

I hope to give it a road test today.

When carrying out this reset its a bit daunting seeing all the flashing warning lights and your gauges resetting but i knew what to expect this time.

I am still disappointed with jaguar on such a major component that this problem occurs.

Graham :rolleyes:
