97 jaguar xk8 starts then stalls

97 jaguar xk8. Used to run good. One morning started, but stalled after a couple of seconds. Cranked good but did not fire up. If a step on the gas pedal a couple of times or open the trottle blade, the car will start, but start sputtering and shakeing and stall. Codes P1000 pending and P1643

SOURCE: failsafe engine mode light comes on, codes

Just a quick mention - for about a month my XK8 low coolant light came on intermittently. This week with no notice while driving normally I got Stability Control Fail and FailSafe Engine Mode and wtih great difficulty got the car back to where I started from (less than a mile). Two days later (when got time) and after a bit of research, I tried it again - same problem and a very unhappy engine. I then disconnected the battery for 15 minutes (probably more) to clear the engine codes as well as check all the wiring and vacuum stuff I could under the hood (at a Jaguar master mechanic's recommendation). No problems found but the car would start and immediately stall with the air intake hose disconnected from the intake butterfly. After I reconnected the air intake hose, she started and purred like normal. The problem is the BATTERY... It is low - I've known it for a LONG time BUT it always started right up and never skipped a beat. I intend to replace it tonight but fully expect that's the issue. I've had the car 6 years (it's a 98) and had NO problems except a dead taillight asembly.

Hope this is of value...

SOURCE: jaguar XK8 PROBLEM BOOT WON'T CLOSE

In the trunk on the right side behind the carpet is the hyrdaulic unit. There is a T fitting on it. Turn the T fitting counterclockwise to release pressure. Tighten it back up and try the top again. I have had this work for me several times.

My xj8 Jaguar crank up and sets right back off what all could be wrong


Security is set. Could be one problem. Fuel system can do this, but rarely. Takes a scanner to see where to look first.

My 97 intrepid will start up, but putter out within seconds


Map Sensor or Crank Sensor. If you have a code reader the map sensor should throw a code, the crank sensor most often will not. Both will cause the car to start, idle to around 1,000 R's and then die.

Jaguar stalls


If this is the same as the problem of engine stall when reaching 60 - 80 mph (and then usually taking foot of accelerator).
Then it is probably due to a fault in the circuitry in the throttle body. some were replaced by Jaguar but now I believe you need to get a new one (now rectified versions) - about £800
Hope this helps   Chris
