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.

Also, in this LINK can find additional details: aa1car.com/library/us1296

Hope helps.

    When there are codes generated by the PCM and you are experiencing an
    issue the codes must be addressed first. This code is generated but the
    Accelerator Pedal Position sensor. When the onboard computer detects an
    issue with this component it sends the vehicle into a failsafe mode. You
    will get a high idle or no pedal response. This device is mounted near
    the accelerator pedal. It could be an intermmittant problem where I would
    replace this component. But there is a possibility you may have a
    intermittant open circuit or short circuit in the wiring (rare) or the
    PCM not listening periodically (rare).

    Diagnosing an itermittant signal
    problem can be difficult. It is very likely you APP sensor is faulty.
    This part is very expensive. Comment this to your local mechanical.

How to know timing is off on a 2000 jag s-type


Timing can be tricky on any vehicle. Most times they all show the same characteristics. It's been my experience that when timing is off one of two things will take place. Either the vehicle will turn over and over and over (meaning the engine) but won't start or if it does start in will run really rough instead of smoothly. If your Jag s-type is running roughly it doesn't necessarily mean the timing is off. could be bad spark plugs, wires, coil packs, or could even be a fuel related problem. I would go with the cheapest solution first and if that doesn't fix it I would work my way through the other mentioned issues working toward the more expensive as a last resort.

I attempted to start my 2005 jaguar x-type, won't start made a clicking noise, dash board lights came on. This happen last week after about 5 minutes of sitting it started.


Mine has done the same thing a couple of times now. We have to jump the battery, but I don't think that's the problem. It slmost seems like the security system locks up.
