My 98 xj8 went dead-stuck in park. intermittently for months and a few mechanics.
My daughter kicked the floor board and it cured the problem. It was a loose wiring harness- under the dash. U can reach it (them) with your hand. The red light is an indication that the security feature is activated.

#17 of 17 Jaguar xj8 stalling question
Apr 06, 2012 (8:31 am)
My 98 xj8 started stalling at highway speeds when decelerating about a year ago. My mechanic has tried several things which seem to correct it for awhile, but it keeps coming back. It is dangerous, since I have to put the car in neutral at 70-80 mph and restart it. Power steering then returns, with control issues. I would like to know if this problem has been reported, and how to solve it. I have an experience jaguar mechanic, but doubt he has done a lot of online searches to figure it out. I have stayed away from the dealership thus far.
