Many newer Jaguar owbers of the 1998 to 2003 models think there's a problem with the ignition because the car sometimes doesn't start on the first turn of the key. You have to turn the key "all the way" to get the ignition fully engaged. I have a 1999 XJ8 and will turn the key part way, then grab it a second time to fully turn it. It's a design flaw because you have to twist your hand really far to get the key turned enough to get the ignition fully engaged.

My 98 v8 sov has knocking when first started increasing revs stops it


It could be if the noise comes back at idle . If not then the problem is else where. It may be a faulty hydraulic valve lifter that is draining down and taking longer to fill with oil at idle. If you have automatic cam adjuster it may be in there (V V I or VETEC type of engine.)

You don't have the proper key. The flip key assembly has a chip in it that lets the car keep running. Use old key assembly. To test put the old ket fob next to the ignition switch and see if it keeps running,

My 1999 Cherokee doesnt start


Take off your gas cap and have someone stand there with thier ear at the hole, (no smoking), turn the key to on just before start and they should hear the fuel pump humming. if they dont then try to start. if it doesnt start turn key off and at that instant the pump should be heard again. What i think is happening is your pump is only energizing when you turn the key to off instead of energizing when you turn key on. Its supposed to energize when turning your key on and off. This would explain your second start working and not your first. This can be caused by a bad fuel pump relay switch. Hope this helps. please rate me
