Brake light switch? I just mention it at as it sounds like the same behaviour as pressing the start button without pressing the brake pedal.

When one of my sons had a car that refused to start I hit the starter motor with a lump hammer.  It started.

 

Times have changed somewhat!!

 

  My skills with cars haven't changed much!

A very good point you made there ie brake light switch,ive told jaguar uk and they said first they checked.

it seemed to be the new car battery i put on, needed to be syncranised to the car ie talk to each other also software update needed to be installed to the car.

gone the days you cannot do simple task to mend little problems on car nowadays
