Customer Question

I have an XK8 2000 Jaguar car.
The car is fine other wise.
But, I am frustrated because for the last 18 yrs or so every once a while the
car does not start or crank up with the key. Messages pop up like :
Car not start : Syst check , Trac N/A , ASC not A/v , Transmission Fault, Failsafe engine mode , brake , battery LT is on , Error & then beeps twice.
I have to sometime wait for 15 min in a parking lot ( sometimes at night time )
for it start after trying 10 times and more. Recently its happening more frequently?
Can you pls explain why the car does not start ?
