Question about 1999 Jaguar XK8
Yes I have the same problem, the key won't come out of the ignition until the voltage drops to a certain level on the battery or it is unplugged, it will not start in park. Is there a relay that is affected by the loss of voltage that let's a servo go at the ignition allowing the key to be removed? I replaced the brake light switch thinking that was the case - you have to step on the brakes to remove the key.
I took out the plug on the top of the J Gate and put a screw driver there to move it to Nuetral and it starts.
