Question about 1998 Jaguar XK8

Open Question

How do i get 1998 xk8 out of valet or security mode?

Jaguar 1998 XK8: Help! Engine cranks normally, will not start. Dashboard lights lite up when pressing brake pedal. No response from key fob remote on door locks, or boot. Windows operate, slowly. Unable to open boot with cabin release or key. Gas filler lid will not release either. Car left overnight in valet parking garage with driver side window down all the way, and the key in the cabin, could this have triggered a security mode disabling all normal function? Help! checking out of hotel 1/2/12; would like to drive it home in it!

Security is set. Could be one problem. Fuel system can do this, but rarely. Takes a scanner to see where to look first.

What causes my 1998 Jaguar XK8 not to start when initially cranked and the Fail Safe message is displayed?


Is the check engine light displayed? If it is, that's where you start, by retrieving the fault code(s). If not, then you could have a security system fault, fuel system breakdown, etc. All codes, regardless of the systems affected, will cause the vehicle computer to immediately default to a failsafe mode, till the problem has been fixed, and this drastically affects driveability, causing no-start issues, idle problems, etc.
