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... ;-)

Good chance

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.

The message window is flashing red and amber light and the letters PECUS S. What does this mean and what should I do about it? My car is a 2002 XKR


You probably driving a mobile swimming pool !

Under the rear seat and the trunk fills with rain water. This corrodes the ECU connections to the on-board control modules.

Common problem with British cars....with the weather in the UK, you'd have thought we could produce water tight cars by now !

I have the same problem on my 1998 XK8


Seek the Jag-Lovers.com website for Dan Jensen's article on repairing the ABS Electronic control board (seems a solder joint becomes intermittent). This is a common trouble in XK8s... mine needed to be replaced recently too....

Best regards,
