[x-type] No crank. No fuel. No spark. No OBD2 code. DSC System/Gearbox

(tpro321) #1

This is for a 2002 Jaguar X-Type. 2.5L V6. AWD. Automatic
transmission. Gearbox Fault and DSC System Failure is stated on the
console. The CEL and ABS are both on.

When the key is inserted, and put in the ‘‘ON’’ position, the starter
does not engage for the engine to crank/turn over. Nothing happens.

The key that is used, the remote can lock/unlock/pop the trunk and
etc.

Several OBD2 code readers have been used, none of them were able to
pull a code. The port does have power, as the units light up when
connected.

If power is crossed on the starter solenoid, the starter engages
and the engine turns over. Starter fluid is used, but nothing
happens.

A new battery has been used with and without a jump starter and
battery charger set at 6 AMP. No change.

The TCM/TCU was pulled, and it appeared to have no moisture/water
damage, although the vehicle has a cracked windshield. The TCM has
been reinstalled. No change.

The trim around the shifter has been pulled. The J-Gate solenoid
does not move under its own power. If the tab is pushed down, then
the shifter can be placed out of park. If the shifter is pushed
forward to park, it hits the ‘‘park’’ switch which makes a click in
the ignition. When in the ‘‘R’’ position, if an object is behind the
back-up sensors, sounds come saying it is too close.

The intake box has been removed, and the PCV tube below it is NOT
cracked.

A spark plug has been pulled out, while power is applied to the
starter, there is no spark.

A threaded nipple on the fuel line just left of the engine had a
been pushed in and a little bit of fuel came out (I’m assuming what
was pressurized). I’m assuming its for a fuel pressure guage. When
the key is turned, no more fuel comes out. I’m assuming the fuel
pump is not functioning.

The vehicle is parked on a slight incline, the rear is on the
incline. At first, the fuel tank read below empty. I poured in a
gallon of gas, and it the reading changed to 1/8 tank.

The intake tube has been taken off, and the butteryfly valve for
the throttle body does not move at all when someone presses the
throttle.

The ground for the ECU near the power steering reservoir has been
removed, sanded and re-installed. There wasn’t any corrosion, but I
did it just in case. No change.

The inertia switch has been reset multiple times, and no change.

To recap: No crank. No fuel. No spark. No OBD2 code. DSC System
Failure. Gearbox Fault.

The only thing I can think of is the ECU, but I cannot remove it.
I’ve removed the two nuts in the engine bay. Then I removed one nut
holding the bracket under the dash. I wasn’t able to get it out.
There appears to b a 5-pointed star with a raised center that is
keeping me from pulling the harness off. Besides that, I do not
know what other nuts and bolts are holding it in.

Please let me know if you guys have any ideas, because I’m pretty
fresh out of them.

Thanks in advance!–

In reply to a message from tpro321 sent Wed 4 Aug 2010:

It’s the ECM that controls the starter and from what else you said
it may be the ECM. That’s where I’d look first.–

If you dont have a 5 pointed star driver to remoove the ecu, many have found that a flat screwdriver of just the right size can bridge across the centre of the star pattern and undo it
Try a few flat screwdrivers, it’ll get you out of trouble
thanks
