I have a 2004 Jaguar X-type 3.0 with an automatic transmission. On several occasions the car will accelerate when the brakes are applied at slow speeds. After the first time it happened, I made sure I was not pressing the gas pedal as well. The other day, I was pulling the car up to the garage and applied the brakes when it accelerated again on its own. I stepped on the brakes harder but the car went right into the garage door. I have been researching this problem tirelessly and have called several dealerships. All say they have never heard of this problem, which is curious because there are several claims about this problem on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's website. Other reports say that they have rear ended cars at stop lights and in parking lots. Everyone can claim that it is driver error and that both pedals are being depressed, but I am a mechanic myself and I have done enough digging to realize that this is a serious problem. My only guess is that there is an electrical problem with the throttle position sensor or the whole throttle body. Any help would be greatly appreciate, as I will not drive the car until this problem is solved. If I can't solve this mystery soon, the car will go on the market.
