How do i disable valet mode om a 98 jaguar vanden
Try inserting the key into the drivers door lock and try centrally locking and unlocking all the doors a few times. If this does not reset the valet function try using the key in the drivers door lock and pressing the fob at the same time as locking and unlocking the doors. Even with valet mode engaged you should be able to access the trunk by physically inserting the key into the trunk lock.

My drivers seat does not move. I have a 2001 xj8
Check for obstructions (sorry-have to start here)
1) get to a very quiet place
2) trigger the switch to move the seat
2.a) if you hear an electronic single click, the motor is probably burned out
2.b) if you do not hear the click check the fuses
2.b.1) if not fuse, take to dealer for inspection diagnosis...this should be done free of charge

Engine stall -- now it won't start won't steer
If Gas mixes with water, combustion is impossible. Not only is the fuel bad, the lines and spark plugs are messed up. Water will also mess up the electrical lines and the cars computer.
First, get some gasoline drying solution. That takes a day or two to work. When the water is removed from the gas tank, add fresh 100% gas. Pull all the spark plugs and clean the ends and check the gap for proper distance. Make certain the plugs are clean and dry before you reinsert them into the ports. Dry and clean all spark plug wires. Check you battery also. It should not have corrosion on the poles. If they have a coating, clean them and make perfect contact with the power cables. Try to start the engine now. Good luck.
