Wiggle the shifter after you have put it into Park. Sometime mine will have gone a little past the "CORRECT" click. GOOD LUCK

Intermittently there is a problem starting the car. The key turns on all the electrics but when turned further it does not engage the starter.

Check your ignition switch electrical side
Check the relay
Or the starter motor itself must be playing up

My ignition key will not turn off

"my ignition key will not turn off", if you mean my key will not come out. Make sure the gearshift is fully engaged in Park. Your interlock system is engaging as if your in gear.

1999 sov v8 does not start instantly on key turn instantly

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.

A4 steering lock does not engage and car won't turn over

The steering locks don't necessarily engage when the key is removed, I always turn the wheel before exiting to engage it. There are several positions that will allow the pin to lock in but if between these, it may seem that it isn't locked.
