Warning message: Amber - Gearbox fault.

Recommended Posts

Hi,

Two minutes after engine start this morning the message centre on my S - Type 2003 - 64k mls read; (Amber light - secondary warning) "Gearbox Fault". Pulled over - car just been serviced, took a paracetamol - in case another bill was looming, and restarted. No messgae illumination - and have driven 30 mls since. Would welcome fellow members thoughts / experiences - is it a problem ?? Thank you.

Hi Dominic,

It may be worthwhile to check out the ABS wheel speed sensors, in particular the rear ones, for any damage to the sensor or excessive corrosion around the reluctor ring. Minor issues here can throw up all sorts of errors as they provide key input to many functions - TCS, DSC, etc.

On balance though if the light does not come back I would not be too worried. That said, you may want to invest in a OBD2 code reader, or find someone in your area who has one, to check out what messages are stored in the various controllers.

Hi Steve,

Thank you. I think i will get the Jag specialist to check it out with the reader - excellent idea !! If light comes back up I will raise on here, after checking your ideas out. Regards, Dominic
