    Have a quick test run to retrieve the fault codes, then post them on this thread. You can buy an OBD 2 code reader for less than $40

If the system won't test 1st look a blown fuse, if the fuses are ok you may be the rare case of a burned out Powertrain Control Module (PCM), but before you replace that very expensive module make sure the system not self testing is verified with another tester/code reader/scanner, I would buy one, they are easy to use the test plug is under the steering column dash panel, This is called the OBD data link connector.

2004 Jaguar, Vaden Plaus,car just quit running going down the road. Had to have it towed home Won't start,turns over, just won't start,says Restricted Performance.


Sounds like it is some type of 'limp home' mode.
It could be anything. It might be as simple as a bad Fuel Pump Relay. When you turn the Key to the ON position (not Start) can you hear a little buzz for about 1 second? That would be your fuel pump running. You need to see if the engine is getting gas and spark.

As most likely know the engine in your Jag is controlled by a computer, when it senses a serious fault in any of the systems it monitors it can trigger a shut down with a restart, the shut down and needed restart is the same as rebooting a computer for a problem that has occurred in the system. What must be done now is to have the local dealer or a very well equipped shop run a scan of the computers memory, there will be fault codes stored for they event and warning lights. So get it tested.

Sounds like a sensor is not operating correctly. The quickest and most expedient initial solution is to have a computer diagnosis done on the car by a shop which has Jaguar ability. You could do the check by using a Fluke meter or similar, but you will have to have a Jag repair book or a Haynes type manual, to enable you to have the necessary electrical values required for each sensor etc.and it would be a time consuming task.

Jaguar glow plug problem


The Glow plug coming on, and the car going into limp home mode, is a default safety feature that occurs when the engine management system picks up any kind error message from the many sensors now used on the car.
I've found the glow plug light problem with my Jag, it was the air filter. Apparently Jaguar servicing change it every 3rd service (not a good idea). I changed mine, it is a new car. I had the EPR valve cleaned and a major diagnostic carried out by a local garage (who had the Jag diagnostic software). It turns out I also need a new Turbo; the actuator is sticking (£759.00 plus 3 hours labour). But hey, the main limp home mode problem is fixed and I can drive my Jag confident it will accelerate when press the gas.
