1999 Jaguar Vanden Plas Questions

Vanden Plas was totaled and quarter panel replaced with an XJ8 quarter panel on the battery side

Can anyone explain what these may mean? I came to a slow stop at red light. Light just came on suddenly. No big symptoms.
A little front brake squeak when stepping on brake to start up and move. I was able to return the 1.5 miles to home at 10mph.

first the low coolant light comes on, then check engine light.
antifreeze is everywhere, then is bigh to smoke, and eventually the car stops. is it a such thing as a electric water pump?
