The on board computer (ECM) has put the car in limp mode (reduced power) because it has detected some kind of serious error in the systems operation, this can be the engine or the electronically controlled transmission, it does this to prevent any further damage to the car engine or transmssion or possible fire hazard in the case of a misfire or rich fuel condition that overheats the catalytic converter. You must now have the computer control module scanned for fault code and repaired based on the diagnostic testing outlined for the code inthe factory diagnostic manual..

Warning light comes on and stalls put in to neutrel starts ok .brake then light comes on stalls start goes in to limp mode ive got 1997 xj6 4l sov lwb thanks andy .turn off start up light gone out ok

Ok Andy, This sounds like a ddefective #2 02 sensor located afther the catallytic converter. This sensor is the critter that turns the light on and that means it is talking to the electronic control module. Either your fuel misture is way too rich or the cat converter is failing. Good Luck-Ned-

I would think that if you didn't have a noise coming out of the tranny you may have a computer or tranny solinoid problem.
Have you tried hooking it up to a scanner?
