SOURCE: My 1998 Jaguar XK8 coolant light goes on, but

the part that will trigger the coolant lights is the temperature sensor, when it going bad it tend to give the computer a wrong temperature sensing and cause the light to trigger on and off. Have your temperature sensor replace. thermostats and thermostats switch is good idea to have it change every 65-75k miles in the jaguar.

My 1998 Jaguar XK8 coolant light goes on, but there is not problem with the coolant system, or sensor

it sounds as if you have an old code stored and its popping up if there is nothing wrong with the sensor try unhooking the battery for about 5minutes then hooking it up if that dosent prevent it from coming on again you will need some one to clear the code out of the computer.
