2001 Jaguar S-Type V8 Two Wheel Drive Automatic 79000 miles
My 2001 Jaguar S type started giving me a message saying transmission fault. If I turned off the engine the message would go away for a while, then return as the engine warmed up. Took it to a transmission shop, They say no problem with transmission, but problem with computer or electrical. They put on a Transmission control unit, then said that is not the problem, charged me for hours of electrical detective work, then said it was really two problems. The transmission control unit and a " pin" on the transmission. Said to fix both these problems would be $1,100 and that should do it. Now they say they still are getting the same " Transmission Fault" message and it must be the computer. Before I spend the money for a new computer I wanted to know has anyone every heard of this?
