Question about 2002 Jaguar S-Type
I believe the shift lever park solenoid bad
If you are really stuck you can remove the shifter cover and you will see the solenoid, at the base of the solenoid is a manual override - press this and you can move the shifter - then do not return it to park until you have fixed the problem ( leave in neutral) Hope this helps - good luck.

You have 2 switches in there for the tranny lock, one is the key has to be in and on, the other is on the brake pedal, so before you go crazy looking for electrical stuff, check those 2 spots out. Pull the cover off the shifter and make sure the solenoid is actually stuck in lock, It is a mechanical lock that can be unbolted if you want to bypass it. The switch on the pedal is probably the culprit. But check them all anyway. This is for most cars, I'm sure the Jag is not that much different. Hope this helps.

The body control module (BCM)
The powertrain control module (PCM) or the transmission control module (TCM).
The BCM controls the voltage to the shift lock control solenoid through the shift lock control solenoid controlled voltage circuit. The following conditions must be met before the BCM will supply voltage to the shift lock solenoid:
The ignition is in the ON position.
The PCM / TCM sends an input to the BCM indicating the transmission is in the PARK position.
The BCM determines the brake pedal is not applied according the brake pedal position.
Since the shift lock control solenoid is permanently grounded, the BCM supplies voltage to the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid, mechanically locking the shift lever in the PARK position as the solenoid energizes. When the brake pedal is applied, the BCM turns the control voltage output of the shift lock control solenoid OFF, de-energizing the shift lock control solenoid. The de-energized solenoid releases the mechanical lock allowing the driver to move the shift lever out of the PARK position. When the transmission is out of the PARK position, the shift lock control solenoid remains de-energized.
The body control module (BCM) controls the A/T shift lock control solenoid by providing battery voltage to the A/T shift lock control solenoid. The BCM utilizes a smart driver to control the voltage supplied to the A/T shift lock control solenoid. The smart driver monitors the voltage and current flow of the control circuit.
This diagnostic procedure supports the following DTC:
DTC B2705 Gearshift Unlock Circuit
You could have a bad brake light switch , automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid.
the BCM or wiring problem
Install a scan tool. Turn ON the ignition, with the engine OFF. Press and release the brake pedal several times while observing the BTSI solenoid parameter in the body control module (BCM) output data list

The automatic transmission shift lock control switch.
The park/neutral position switch.
With the ignition in the ON position, battery positive voltage is supplied to the park/neutral position switch. When the transmission is in the PARK position the contacts in the park/neutral position switch are closed. This allows current to flow through the switch to the automatic transmission shift lock control switch. The circuit continues through the normally-closed switch to the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid. The automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid is permanently grounded. This energizes the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid, locking the shift linkage in the PARK position. When the driver presses the brake pedal the contacts in the automatic transmission shift lock control switch open, causing the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid to release. This allows the shift lever to move from the PARK position.
Park Lock Solenoid
The park lock solenoid is a safety device that prevents an inadvertent shift out of PARK when the key is in the OFF position. The key must be in the RUN position to release the park lock solenoid. The system consists of the park lock solenoid. With the ignition in the ON position, voltage is supplied to the park lock solenoid. The park lock solenoid energizes through a permanent ground unlocking the shift lever. With the ignition in the OFF or ACCY position the park lock solenoid de-energizes and locks the shift lever in the park position.
Shift Lever Does Not Move with Brake Pedal Depressed
DEFINITION: Transmission shift lever will not move out of the PARK position with the ignition ON and the brake pedal pressed.
