you most likely have a bad key switch cylinder assembly. you can try to spray wd40 solvent into the switch before you have the switch replaced,but sometimes it's a switch replacement that repairs the problem. have you inspected your ignition key to look for damage to the key itself? try a spare key to make sure it's the key,and not the key switch. you can also try turning the key while turning the steering wheel at the same time to get the key to work.sometimes the switch locks when parked in a bind,such as on a hill,or against a curb and so on. try this 1st before you have the ignition switch replaced. AAA auto club,if you're a member covers part of the replacement costs for a replacement switch also. you may have coverage through a cell phone also.one more thing to try, if you have a tilt steering column,try to reposition the steering wheel to see if you can get the key to turn. remember never force it enough to break your key off into the switch! thank you for choosing fixya.com!

I assume the car is locking and the alarm is working correctly?
Try leaving the car locked then open the drivers door using the key, as soon as you open the door you should hear a chime - this is counting down to sound the alarm. Put your key into the ignition as soon as you can and try starting the car - if the problem is the same it would point to the key possibly having a faulty transponder within it or the locking module sensor or unit cannot see the key at the ignition barrel. have you another key to try. (The key itself has an identity separate from the key fob part)
You will need to visit a good repair shop or the Jaguar main dealers who will have the equipment to scan the system to identify the faulty part.
Other possible scenario is that there is a large current fault that is draining/shorting the system as you attempt to start
hope this helps - good luck.
