I have not got a jag yet, I am thinking about buying one I have owned bmws and audis. ALL CARS FROM europe have electircal probs. I dont know why, this prob sounds like a ground prob. I would check the controil mode on the firewall. Bmws always had a fuse there that would short out on the hood and cause the same prob. I just moved the fuse panel/controil down lower and never had the prob again. I know bmw are different but a car is a car.

Underneath the pollen filter housing under the bonnet the ECM (engine control module) is located,If any of the drains are blocked you could be getting water into the ECM....Just a thought...Hope this helps

Yes its a new one to me too !
I presume its an automatic model ?
Possibly the gear selection inhibitor switch is at fault, due to water ingress ?
Have you tried starting in neutral ?
Do you hear any clicking from the engine starter at all, when you turn the key ?
If you do, then suspect the starter motor at fault.
I see you posted this on Dec the 6th, so expect you have located the problem by now, if not hope I have been of some help.
Best Wishes !

Check if your transmission really is in park. I once had the same problem and it was fixed by moving the stick in and out of the park stand for a couple of times. Then the red light illuminating the "P" came on and i could start again.
Has to do with the transmission cable that tends to get a bit loose.

Definitely do not let them take anything apart, that is a ridiculous idea.
The error code should tell them almost exactly what is wrong.
However, again, this could be a similar problem a lot of cars with variable valve timing are getting which is a failing intake cam sensor. This DOES NOT require pulling the engine apart and is VERY EASY and CHEAP to replace. A $30 sensor does not require an engine teardown.
