Question about 2004 Jaguar X-Type
The first time this happened was when I was leaving work for lunch no lights or anything came on and engine wouldn't turn over, sat for a moment thinking tried it again and lights came on and it started just fine. Second time this happened hadn't drove the car for almost two days while it sat in the garage and lights came on, the engine cranked but would not turn over. The next morning the car started just fine??
1. check battery connections thoroughly; emphessis on thoroughly.

My suggestion to this is to check the basics. Check fuel pressure and check spark during crank. There is no quick answer for a no start condition. You always have to start by checking the basics. An engine with no spark or fuel will not start every time.

First did you have a check engine light, and do you know what the code was if you did?
Ok, the traction control not available isnt goin to affect the car from starting.During my year of a jaguar tech the most common for a crank, no start is a flooded engine. Now the two most causes for a flooded engine on these jags are 1. the weather is just super cold and all the own does is keep cranking the car to try to get to start. 2. A lot of short trip, a lot of city driving, 15 mins or less.
When you get something like this, a no start crank, you have to pump the gas pedal really fast, like your starting an oil muscle car. this forces more air into the engine.
when this no start happend u could get all these codes, what i maybe would recommend is a tune up, and some highway driving every once and a while to kept this from happening again, hopefully this helps, thanks.

I had the same issue with my 2001 XJ8 and ended up having to have the car rewired from the engine to the battery. I was charged about $300 from a independent automotive electrician. Unfortunately this was after having a new starter and alternator installed! I was told that there were 2 or 3 service bulletins on this issue from Jaguar.
Good luck on this one, it's very frustating and had my car in the shop for about 3 weeks trying to figure this one out.

it is your electronic control module which is the BRAIN of the car and this is a computer which runs the entire car and it is offline it may need to be reflashed by a mechanic shop with the proper software through a laptop. Electrical problem is what it is. get a diagnostic scan performed on it ok?

First off check the battery. Try and jump start it. If that does not get the vehicle running you may have a problem with your J gate as it will not start unless in park or neutral. If an internal electrical fault has happened then the micro swith may not send a signal to the ecu to allow the car to start. the J gate is the gear selector by the way
