Your problem can be caused by a few different systems, components or engine management circuits. This is most likely an electrical fault like one of the engine management sensors. Usually just turning off the vehicle for a few minutes and restarting it will clear the warning so you could drive it but if the ECU sees the fault again it will go back into restricted performance.

We will need to have the vehicle faults read and cleared with a Jag compatible tool. You can do a visual inspection in the engine compartment as well as checking the battery and cable connections to make sure all are clean and secure.
