Default Newbie to Jag 99 xj VX vanden plas.. need advice

I've had this car a few months beautiful car. Last few days will sometimes not turn over, just a click by passenger front sounds like and also from sounds like the cigarette lighter sometimes?? Message center reads low coolants(nearly full, doesn't overheat) & Traction control failure, or a couple times said Pecus with a t below. Will start after a few tries of going through the system check cycle after turning key. Usually strong starter and runs well. Have noticed a small jolt upon acceleration if you try to accelearate quickly. Always run premium. 160,000 miles ..not sure what this could be, any suggestions???

The internal Jaguar code for your 1999 Vanden Plas is the X308, you need to look at this forum: https://www.jaguarforums.com/forum/xj-xj8-xjr-x308-27/

The cars here are several generation older and share nothing between them and your model. All that being said, how old is the battery? If it's older than 5 years, replace it. It might also be a good idea to put it on a battery charger (CTEK is a great brand) and try charging the battery. All sorts of electronic weirdness is often associated with a weak or low charge battery.
