No. Still same. I disconnect and connect battery wire still same error. Car move slowly
Jaguar Mechanic: Richard, Jaguar Technician replied 2 months ago

Ok that fault code indicates a problem with the ECM. We should check the connections to it. The ECM is located under the covers in the right hand rear of the engine compartment. If a new or used ECM is installed the engine will not start until the security is programmed.
