i have a 1994 xj6 40 series jag and when i shift the car from drive or reverse the starter will engauge what is happening
I also have the switch in the on position but not running and as I move the shifter towards park the car will actually start !
Sounds like the ignition switch is going bad or you have a short in the start circuit wiring.
