Question about 2001 Jaguar S-Type
That sounds like the door latch assembly is faulty it does not use the same micro switch for door open signal has the interior light

SOURCE: door ajar light remains on
One of your door switches sounds faulty, usually drivers door goes first. There's a little push-in button sticking out on your door post or a small lever type plastic thing where your door meets vehicle, that is your switch. You can try spraying it with contact cleaner or WD-40 & working it in & out by pushing it with your thumb, it may fix it tempoarily, but if not, it will have to be replaced. If your mechanically inclined I can tell you how to test it.

I had the same problem with my 2003 F-150. To fix the problem I spayed WD-40 into each door latch, problem resolved!!!

There is a push button switch in the door frame possibly covered with a rubber boot you may have bent the push pin and it is shorted to the frame, Remove the switch and ensure the wire is still attached to the switch and not loose inside the frame

o2 sensors often cause a rough idle at stand still. Previously my xj8 had crank case ventilation (pvc valve essentially) issues that caused the check engine w/ restricted performance. I noticed a severe drop in gas mileage as well. Jaguar dealer fixed my problems in a few hours and it was surprisingly cheap. Its worth taking it to advanced or auto zone to see what the computer says. Then decide if you want to shell out for a dealer fix or if you can tackle it yourself. BTW, just to justify myself this is my third jaguar. I have a '94 xj6 with a chevy 350 inside it, previously owned a 95 XJ6 and currently have the xj8. They are wonderful cars if you can put up with their rough times.

If you have a carborator it is shot - If it is fuel injected than you have need to have your heads cleaned or replaced. If it doesn't turn over at all I would start with your starter. Your distributor can also cause this as well - I had to replace all of the above, minus the carborator and it fixed my problem - Was like a new car afterward.
