Gearbox problem

Recommended Posts

Hello peeps,got a problem with the gearbox on my s type.Starting up from cold

all the lights go out,pull away and amber light comes on left side of rev counter,

and won't go into top gears (assume 5th & 6th).Gearbox fault  appears,

Get car warm,stop,switch off,restart, problem gone.This has happened the last 

3times i've used the car.Is this going to be a cheap fix or will the wife get the 

hump when her housekeeping allowance gets drastically reduced?.Cheers all, Mart.

need to get codes read, needs to be plugged into Jaguar IDS/SDD to see what fault codes are coming up

could be something simple as low oil level, as when it get hot it expands a bit and might work

but every body answers are just going be guess work

get it plugged and see whats the fault

First thing is start with the basics. The gearbox will give a fault light if the fluid is low (this goes when you stop start) also it is going into safe mode. Change the filter and somehow get 6 litres+ into the transmission - I can give you advice. Unlikely to be anything else or the light would stay on.
