Hi there!

The definiton of your fault code P2610 is ECM/PCM Internal Engine Off Timer Performance

The only info I have relates to this being an engine management ECU (DME) problem. The info doesnt go into specifics but says that the car requires a software update, then further diagnosis if this is unsuccessful. Worst case would be DME failure.

Engine light saying on

It is actually an 'engine malfunction light'. You need to go to a garage and they will connect a code reader to it. The code will tell you what the code is.

Alternatively you can buy a code reader. All the codes are available online.

Code 2610, engine doesn't start same felling as if the battery too weak to prop up the engine

If a P2610 has been verified do not replace the ECM. Perform the following steps when encountering a P2610.

Turn the IGNITION OFF for 90 seconds. Unplug both the engine control module (ECM) connectors for 90 seconds. After 90 seconds has passed, re-install the ECM connectors. With the ignition on use the Tech2 and clear all codes in the ECM. This procedure should prevent future sets of the P2610. For 2006 and certain 2007 model vehicles, there may also be a calibration update available which addresses P2610 false sets.

Please follow this diagnostic or repair process thoroughly and complete each step. If the condition exhibited is resolved without completing every step, the remaining steps do not need to be performed.

No there isn`t and if you try to ground the wrong wires it will blow the ECU,Any Eobd code reader can clear most codes in the engine management butforother systems you need Dedicated IDS jaguar software.
