2000 Jaguar XK8 engine won't crank.

Purchased a 2000 Xk8 with a collision damage on the driver side door.The damage requires the door and rocker panel to be replaced.Tried to start the car after completing the repairs, the engine wont crank and there was a display on the cluster that says ELECTRICAL FAULTS.

I'm not 100% sure on Jags, but on a domestic vehicle you have to clear the code with a scan tool. You should be able to call any Jaguar service center and get a quick answer.
