Question about 1997 Jaguar XK8
It could be the brake pedal switch, it often occurs it fails in our kitty. If your car (as mine) is equipped with a cruise control, this could be associated with the msg "cruise control not available" too (or something similar).
In this case you can fix (or change) that switch. The worst is to dismount it... ;-)

A wild guess - your crank speed sensor. But, with this level of malfunction, pull the codes. Buy a code reader (EOBD/OBD) from Ebay or go to a Jaguar dealer or any decent engine diagnostic center and they will tell you what is malfunctioning. The codes don't tell all the story, they just tell you what is out of tolerance - there could be a lot of things out just because one component is malfunctioning, so you need someone who has expertise with this engine.
