I have a 2000 Jaguar S-Type. The transmission went out late last year. I finally found someone to rebuild the transmission and they gave me a one year warranty. While waiting for a shop to do that repair, a squirrel ate the wiring (true), so when I could not test the transmission. The transmission repair shop would not fix the electrical as they only do transmissions. I found another shop to repair the electrical, but they are saying the Torque Converter is stuck and they won't fix the electrical until the transmission is repaired. The transmission shop is saying the transmission is fine but can't "reset" and will show the Torque converter is locked until the electrical is fixed. I have a one year warranty on the transmission, but I am stuck between these two repair shops. Both companies say they are right and the other shop is wrong. I just want to get my car fixed and have invested a lot of money into it so far.

I have been talking to them each day since Monday. They say if they try to fix the electrical, they can't test it until the transmission is fixed. I offered to sign a notarized document saying they wouldn't be responsible, but they have refused. They want the car out by tomorrow. Yes, I did see the chewed wires, which have been put back together enough to start the car. But the transmission guys said they don't work on Jaguars and because of the electrical and computer, they can't do anything.

The guy fixing the wires make no sense he fixed only some of the wires but cant fix the rest because the transmission isnt fixed?So let me get this striaght the transmission is supposedly fixed by the transmission guy and they put it back in. The transmission is having torque convertor lock up issues and the wire repair guys are blaming the transmission guys and the transmission guys are blaming the wire guys?If this the case I thought the wire guys wernt down testing the wires?Heres a little tip the wire guys can test there work some what by doing a ohms test on the repaired wires. It almost sounds like the wire repair guys havent repaired the transmission wires yet?But only repaired the wires so it will start and run?If thats the case how would they know the transmission has issues?
