Is it running okay? I hate to say it because they're such beautiful cars but Jaguars can be electrical disasters.... It could be something very insignificant. As long as its running okay i would say its alright to drive.

It's true Jags are notorious for the electrical problems. My pops up with drivers side air bag all the time. There's nothing wrong with it. Drove it all the way from Va to Tn even. Most mechanics call those lights idiot lights only because once they come on you either have already noticed you have a problem or they just come on and stay on for no reason really. So take Joef's advice on this one. Hope that helps =)
