    Same thing for my 2004 XJR.. Twice it has stalled going through a car wash. And always at an inconvenient time.

    I told the Service Manager at the Jaguar Dealership, and they echoed what you had said. But then added, let's hope you don't need a new ECU because it is very expensive. Also told me to not park under trees.
