Having problems with your 2004 Jaguar S Type ?
Gear locks when i park on even a slight incline
\015 Bought slightly used 2000 s-type 4.0. when i park on even a slight incline (car wash ramp) (driveway parking), I have to push gear really hard or i cannot change gear from park to drive/reverse. i've been told 2 different stories: this is an issue w/my model/year car, so i have to use parking brake then put car in park...(do the reverse when ready to leave). i have been told that newer models have an electronic sensor that compensates for this problem. The second story i've been told is that there may be a problem with the gear box or the car's cable. Not sure what to believe, because my friend has a 2000 jaguar 2.0 and has never had this problem. Help! -- wj\015
ALWAYS engage the Parking Brake BEFORE putting car into "Park". When you want to get out of "Park", put your foot on the brake pedal, move gear shifter into desired gear, THEN take down Parking Brake. If you get stuck (gear shifter doesn't move), then try the "rocking" method (recruit 1 or 2 folks to push your car from behind while you try to move gear shifter into desired gear). Good luck!
You need to make sure linkage is not loose or in incorrect position and have the gear selector moved from underneath car while someone checks that the shifter and indicator is following suite.
