On most cars it is on the brake pedal , up under the dash.
Usually held in by a clip ring/pin...not sure on a Jag, but might be a good start.
Usually has 2 wires leading to it.

The brake ligth stay on after you turn on the car

This sounds like a bad brake light switch, look under the dash on the driverside, locate the brake pedal and follow it up and you will see the switch near the top of the pedal bracket, unplug the switch and the brake light should go out, you will need to replace the switch.

The car is auto it wont start and the brake lights are working intermitemtly i know that there is a release switch but dont know where its located

If you are talking about switch that actuates brake lights,it will be located somewhere between brake pedal and the pivot point of the arm of brake pedal. It is just a small switch,and the contacts inside are not making. It will mash against a flat to depress pin on switch. Not sure on your specific make but concept is same on all cars. Hope this helped.

My brake lights arnt working

Sounds like you need a new brake switch which is located on the brake pedal under the dash. It is what send the signal to the rear brake light module.

You can pick one up at any jag dealer.

Good Luck!

Stype stuck in park

Check the brake lights to see if they are working. The transmission shifter gets an electric signal from the brake light switch telling it the brakes are on and it's OK to shift. If the lights are not working check the fuse. If the fuse is fine then check the brake light switch. It's usually located somewhere around the brake pedal.

Brake lights stay on

I believe this is most likely a faulty or stuck brake light switch. The lights are actuated when depressing the brake pedal thus closing the circuit in the switch usually attached to the upper end of the pedal near the hinge.

Jaguar xk8 auto, won't come out of park

your brake switch, the one that activates rear brake lights has probably failed. Press brakes, have someone see if brake lights turn on, if no then it is a brake light switch problem.

Speed control not working, where is the fuse located?

There are three fuses that have to work for the cruise to operate, including the brake lights.Check fuse numbers 53,54, and 59. It can also be affected by the brake switch (and clutch switch - if equipped). The cruise also needs a connection through the brake light bulbs, which means that it will not work if the bulbs are burnt out or if you have LED tail lights. Try pulling up on the brake pedal to see if it is the brake switch. Please post your results. Thanks.
