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.

you can buy a fuse probe for under $5 and probe all the fuses one by one (it is a small plastic box with two prongs and an 'led' light that glows when the fuse is good). some fuse packs include a fuse probe at no extra charge. some vehicles work on circuit breakers which are small black boxes. listen to the fuse panel while turning the windscreen wipers on or off to see if you can hear a clicking from the circuit breaker. the circuit breaker protects the fuse. good luck

I had this problem with my wifes car. I went through the car top to toe and found more than one problem causing this intermittant issue.
I found a weak crank sensor, when warm it was intermittantly losing a signal, replaced it and the problem was a little better, I then found that the throttle position sensor was also intermittantly not within the range it should be, replaced it and it helped, I then was getting the oxygen sensor code and that was only due to the car stalling, nothing to do with the o2's, I finally traced the final issue to the integral harness on the valve body inside the transmission, I replaced that harness and fitted a new transmission speed sensor and the car has been perfect.
I know you have several issues here that could be your problem but you now have a base to start from.
Last thing is the car may just need an engine set-up if you are no longer having any codes. This is only done by the dealer using there WDS computer system. The perform a oxygen sensor orientation test, they set-up the kick down and also set-up the Throttle positon sensor (TPS).
Hope this helps.

It sounds like the classic symptoms of air leaking into the engine after air flow sensor. check the hoses on top of the engine. Also spray detector spray around the inlet manifold this will get dragged into the engine at the leak and will make a noticeable affect on the engine note/smoothness. Leaks around the inlet manifold is quite a common fault on s type. see other posts with similar symptons earlier in jaguar fixya.
Good luck. Please let me know if you find the fault.
