Welcome aboard Colm, sorry to hear of your issues........Hi.
Just joined today and already need help or assistance!
Bought a 2007 XKR a few months ago. About 8hrs of having passed its MOT the car wouldn’t start. I was told it may be because of ‘column lock ground authorisation’ and/or ‘start control unit’! Presently I have the battery disconnect as car lights were staying on and flatting the battery…when trying to start no lights on dashboard were lightning up! I’m not very mechanic etc minded so any advice will be greatly appreciated!
Another issue I have does anyone know where this wire should go -see pics?! Thank you.
This is worthwhile considering, may help give more info....Have a look on this thread.
There may be somebody who has a code reader in the near of you.

Good advice, if you can ColmRather than guesswork it would be better to get the car to a independent Jaguar specialist in your area.
