The next time your car tries to strand you, here are 2 things to try.
1. Enter your Security code on the door keypad and immediately turn the key to start it.

2. Carry a few tools to disconnect the negative post of your battery for 10 minutes. Then reconnect and try to start it.

As a note to your mechanic, under the right circumstances we had a Lincoln whose drivers seat was interlocked with the ignition. The car would quit running and not restart when anyone sat in the drivers seat.
It took 1 dealer 3 days to get it running. It broke down 55 minutes later and a second dealer had it permanently fixed in 1 hour.

All vehicles have adjustments for idle. All you have to do is locate where it is and do the deed. U might have a screw adjustment on the linkage connected to gas pedal.

Why does the fan come on when starting my car


It may just be the computer is running a test
At a stop it is coming on to cool the radiator coolant
You could wlak into the service bay of a dealer like you owned
the place & ask a tech what the strategy is for the fan circuit
You can do that if you have the nerve,I walk around dealers
& go for parts & no one stops you,try it

I am driving down the road and my car jumps then says it is in engine fail safe mode. I have to pull over to the side of the road, I turn my car off, then turn it back on. Once I start my car again it...


Now you have to stop using it,sorry

You have two main Fail Safes
One is overheating
Yours is IGNITION COIL MISFIRES

Without getting in a long technical story
the individual coils you have COP Ignition System,
either slowly fail and set no light,or set a code
In your case it doesn't matter because the codes won't help much

You most likely have a really bad ignition coil
It does not ground out as it should in the PCM (computer)
That spike comes back on the TPS Sensor (throttle position)
and then you lose the TPS normal Data that is the result
of where you push on the gas pedal

At that point there is no way to adjust fuel injector pulse,so
it starts killing cylinders and eventually goes into ETC Fail-Safe

Your Done-- Also there may not be many professionals that
will believe me. Been there done that.

Ideally a shop that actually uses an oscilloscope can solve
which coil is bad
You can buy 1 coil for $60.00 & walk it from one cyl
to the next and after a week fix it for $60.00

I will tell you, people have spent $3000.00 at dealers
& got zip.

In the event my story if off,
your next problem would be the
TACM (throttle actuator control motor )
That will be your codes. Do Not let the codes
guide you or your repair shop. The throttle body
is $700.00. If you do need one, you better be installing
your self.

This would appear to be a immobiliser fault? Try a manual start - do not use fob, open door with key and immediately put the key in ignition and start the car. Using this method - when you open the door you will hear a chime this is counting down to starting the alarm. This method can sometimes get around a fob/immobiliser fault. If this makes no difference then you need to get the car checked at a Jaguar dealers for the security system. - good luck.
