Question about 1993 Jaguar XJ6
I'm on dissability can someone please just give me a second of their time? I'll try to be brief, 1993 xj6 stalled due to a failing alternator very cold out and some belt or pulley noise. When I got home a mile away I disconnected the batterys (-) because it seemed to drain if I didn't. Here goes ready? This has blown my mind, when I unhooked the battery cable it was tike when an arc welders rod gets stuck and closes the circut, so I jerked it off and, ha well I did. And checked under the hood and the alternator area smelled burnt. Suspecting the old alternator shorted out somehow I then turned it by hand and made sure the key was off and tried again the battery was still arching. Recap. 1. Parasitic drain. 2. Replaced battery. 3. Alternator only worked at 2-3k then quit the last mile lights dimmed and car tried to stall. 4. Removed negative battery and found that its shorting out. And vehicle is completely dead for the holidays and of course its 19 degrees everyday this time of year and walking gets dangerous.
