I was at a stop light yesterday and when I went to take off it was like it wasn't in hear when I press the has it doesn't even rev up

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

There are no lights on

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Jaguar?

01 xjr supercharged 4.0

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your XJR yourself? What have you tried so far?

Scanned it for codes and checked fuses. There are no codes. It will only rev up in park and neutral it does nothing when you press the accelerator in drive or reverse

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Not that I can think of
