If you push the boot release button, and the number plate lights flicker, you have a chafed earth. Common, and has caught me a couple of times. Punch through the ski bag in the rear seat. Reach in to either side for the seat release cables. Pull and release the seat. Drop the seat then drop the second seat. Now lie on your belly and crawl into the boot to dismantle the boot release cover. Pull the arm and open the boot. Now you can work properly. With the boot lid up, release the cable guide on the left, and look for a chafed wire. fix it. While you are at it, fix a bike brake cable to the lock mechanism and run it to somewhere you can access it with the seats up, so that if it goes again, you can just pull the cable.

the airbag is held on by 2 plastic clips, they are shaped like a claw to release them you need a flat blade screwdriver to gently seperate the 2 parts of the claw. (there is a jaguar special tool for the job} insert the driver through the holes in the back of the steering wheel and twist 90 degrees. turn the wheel quarter turn to gain access.pull gently on the airbag at the same time, you need the driver to be the correct size its a bit of a pig to do, make sure you disconnect the battery first. the airbag electrical connectors are delicate so be careful, good luck

Bro, it's just that the automatic stops need reset on the door glass to make it close ALL the way up against the seal. Then no more whistle. I dislike that sound also.

ther is a level sensor on the rear suspension the link rod may have come disconnected or the sensor has gone faulty

I just can't see the gear box itself being bad if all is still in working order. I'd be checking the sensor that's sending this message.

Having a restoration shop and running several newer Jaguars I have seen similar situations. Intermittent multiple errors such as these can be caused by a low battery (or corroded connections) that "fool the computers". Also had a '99 XJ8 VDP have exactly the same issues over several months. Issue was a manufacturing fault in the sensors on the throttle body that caused the "limp home" mode - usually in stop and go traffic. Jaguar had an inspection and recall on the throttle bodies but that vehicle had gone through 3 different Jaguar dealers for service and none looked at TSB/Recall or performed the necessary checks on the throttle body. Tried cleaning the throttle several times (per Jaguar TSBs) but no change. Had to replace throttle body & problem solved (over 30,000 miles since then). Recommend making sure all air connections to throttle are clean and open and cleaning the throttle area to see if that helps.

On newer Jaguars (and other Al bodied cars) similar problems occur when the "ground" connections to the body become poor (usually through corrosion but sometimes through collisions). Connections may look perfectly normal but have high resistance. Careful when working with the connections - the posts are usually very loosely fastened to the bodies. The engine quit on a 2005 XJ8 VDP when I turned the wipers on (fortunately I was driving slow in a parking lot) because one of the forward bulkhead ground connections was corroded (looked normal but separated from body when removing the wires to clean them).

Also there occur occasional funny intermittent issues with all newer Jags that seem to be untraceable and non-reproducable computer "glitches".Good luck.

it sounds like its the in car temp aspirator motor listen to the little vent next the steering column if thats it. its not a big issue just get it replaced easy fix

the stab light comes on if the battery is low because you are cranking the engine your aj26 v8 engine may have a common problem for cars up to that model/year with worn nicosil coated bores ie. low compression check the vin no. at your jag dealer you can get it started by removing the spark plugs and putting a egg cup of engine oil in to each of the cylinders the first thing to do is to check for fault codes using a obd code reader for a clue followed by a compression test
