Question about 2000 Jaguar S-Type
After a couple of turns with the key then it starts, what is the problem ?
You likely have one of two issues.Assuming it is not a security feature such as a coded key causing the issue.
1. the trigger wire isn't getting the 12volts it needs to turn the starter every time you turn the key. If that's it you have an electrical issue some where between the ignition switch and the starter.it could be a corroded wire connection or a bad contact in the switch among other things that would facilitate a bad connection.
2. Starters almost always do this when they're ready to quit for good. The contacts in the starter itself are likely worn and you aren't getting a good connection every time you turn the key but with repeated key turning you are heating up the bad connection and it will then conduct the voltage that it needs to function.
Number 2 is the most likely and the least expensive one to try, as electrical trouble shooting is time consuming and if you are paying a shop to repair it they may spend hours looking and still not find the issue
