Ok first check to make sure that the inertia switch did not trip. This is located behind the passenger side kick panel. There is a cutout in the panel so you can try depressing the top of the switch to reset it if it popped up. Then just turn off the ignition for a second and try to start it. If that does not work then you can also try disconnecting the negative battery cable for 10 minutes. Take a good look at the battery as they usually crack and leak on the negative post.

Richard,

 

 

I have reset the car , by undoing the neg. cable form the battery. But the engine light remained on do I need to take the car in or can I reset it myself.

Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 13 years ago
Since the ewngine light is on you will need to have the codes read and cleared with a scan tool. I recommend that you go to your local pepboys or autozone as they usually do this at no charge. Once oyou hve the code numbers let me know what they are.
