Question about 1997 Jaguar XK8
Maybe these things will sort themselves out after a bit of driving?
Batteries that are on the way out will give false malfunction signals. Replace your battery before doing anything else.

Testimonial: "Maybe the battery is on the way out BUT I don't think so. I think the battery went flat over just a couple of weeks because somehow I had left some electrical item on. I have only had the car for 4 months and have left the car a few times for a month and the battery never gave a hint of a problem. It was the first time it was in my quite small garage. I did not lock the car and maybe I left a door slightly open or something, anyway, the battery was as dead, deader in fact, than the Dodo. A big test will come this week-end (2 weeks after the problem.) Will it start or not? If not maybe you're right about the battery but I am expecting it to start as usual - fingers crossed!!"

one of your wheel sensors are bad. if you go to napa they will let you use a code reader for free and that will tell you which wheel it is and you can replace that sensor. they are kinda expensive @ around 100 bucks a piece.

Check for short in the electrical system as that is what is causing the Drain , then check if the Generator is working properly

Your best to get the system "code read". Withhout seeing the carits impossible to say, it could be anything. Sensor failure, wiring fault etc. Make friends with a good Mechanic.
