Hello and thanks for using

There are a humber of reasons why as there are over twenty engine sensors that can cause this. As long as the light does not blink or you feel any performance issues you can drive. We will need to have the vehicle scanned for the stored fault codes. A Jag factory tool is needed to do this but we can try using a generic OBD II tool available at your local parts store. The code will read a P followed by four numbers. If you can get a code from the vehicle let me know.
