Question about 2000 Jaguar S-Type
Yes this can be issue with CATS. It can damage the catalytic converter due to excess gas going into the exhaust. This can be caused by several things...
1) Bad spark plugs ( replace if you haven't done this)
2) Clogged air filter ( just replace it .. cheap)
3) Clogged fuel filter and faulty fuel pump.
4) Bad fuel pressure regulator ( easy to check... look for it and pull the vacuum hose off. if you see or smell gasoline in the vacuum hose, then replace the regulator)
5) Since the check engine light was flashing... this is a temporary problem. it may or may not have saved an error code. Take it to a car parts place and see if they can scan for a code. It should be free.If the problem repeats again n again then it’s advisable to get car scanned at diagnosis center to get error codes, At diagnosis center you will receive the error code. As per the error code it will detect the exact faulty part in the car due to which the problem is occurring. For more help: --- at www.autozone.com it’s absolutely free to get car scanned.
6) Pour a can of B-12 into the gas tank and also remove the intake hose and spray B-12 into the throttle ( not while it is running) to clean up the intake and some sensors in there.
7) Possible clogged fuel injectors... you can solve this with #6 above... pour 1 can of B-12 in the tank. You can get this at an auto parts store.
If still the same problem then its one of the sensors that is reading improperly and is feeding bad information to the PCM and causing it to adjust the fuel/air when it shouldn't.... this is getting into more technical ( other things to check is the camshaft position sensor and the crankshaft position sensor). Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

You may enough power to power the lights,
but not enough to keep the starter engaged. If
the starter is rapidly clicking when you turn the key, then it is
insufficient battery current.
Could sound like you have a current drain on the battery even when switch off. With the ignition off put a ammeter between the negative lead and the negative terminal of the battery and measure the current drain. If detected now remove and reinsert each fuse in turn noting the change in current flow. By this process you will isolate the offending circuit.
Alarm system? Assuming you have an auto box double check the car is properly in park (the P will light up red) the switch can get sticky. Push the stick further forward than usual and move the stick left to right.
