    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.

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.

You will be fine driving the car with the engine light on as this is a safety feature the car may be under powered ie may feel as if the turbo's not working (If it has one) but this is perfectly normal the engine light comes on which will then put the car in to "Limp Mode" which then allows you to get the car home or to the nearest garage
Hope this helps Nick

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.
