You have done something very wrong obviously.
I suggest you get a pro auto electrician round to quote for repairs before you set fire to the car.

SOURCE: Problems with 2000 S-type Jaguar
I have an 02 Jaguar S-type 3.0 liter with 86k on it. I bought the car cheap because the owner thought it needed new coils. What I found was the spark plugs were old so I replaced them, due to the fact you need to remove the intake manifold to replace the right side spark plugs, I found mismatched spark plugs. I also found moisture down in the plug wells on the 3 coils that were not firing. My solution was to replace all the spark plugs, clean and dry the coils and coil boots and apply WD-40 (water displacement - 40) liberally on the boots and in the boots. I put it all back together and it runs like a champ. No more check engine lights and no more stumbling and misfiring. So if you have the time to dismantle and inspect the coils and plugs its a good way to save some money. Or you can just replace the coils and hope the moisture doesn't build up again. Good Luck!

you have bad valve seals again and it is possible that the valve guides are bad ( to much play ) i worked for Jaguar 13 years and i have done 100's of these and very few needed guides it sound like the seals where not done correctly at the last repair.

Most likely the lock out switch at the brake pedal is at fault, because in order to put it in in to any gear you have to step on the brake first ! Their is a switch located which prevents you put it in gear with out stepping on the brake pedal, so check this switch first.
