02 jaguar xtype 3.0 awd Gear box fault shows up
My 02 jaguar xtype 3.0 AWD sometimes on the dashboard the letters gear box fault show up what could it be and how could I fix it
Alberto Castro, it may not be a transmission problem but can be an electronics problem. There have been reported issues with water entering the TCM, as well as transmission oil leaks causing the Gearbox Fault to show up. A Jaguar service tool will be necessary to scan the codes in the transmission control module to verify this. Check on here for more info.
I've had this problem. The Jaguar dealership replaced the DSC module & 2 days later the DSC Fault returned. This was in the cold of the winter & the engine struggled to turn over.
Ended up replacing the battery & the DSC Fault hasn't returned. Hope this helps.
My 2009 Jaguar XF will not start. Check engine light came on. At first my car started but I got a message... Gear Box Fault" . What does this mean??
Whenever I see strange faults, it’s often time to change the battery.
Reply 23/11/2021. Get your Auto Electrician to check and replace the non conducting paste protecting the connector pins beneath the main fuse box in the engine bay near the battery. I purchased an Xtype AWD 2001 which suffered this problem and the paste had dried out and moisture was apparently causing electric crossing between the pins. This was resolved by removing and replacing this non conductive paste. I had many varied messages on dash screen with erratic dash readings. This vehicle has behaved normally for 4 years since that process.
Good Luck, Alan
