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 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

Hope this helps and thanks for choosing FIX YA!

check your connections. turn the key to the on position and leave it sit for a minute or so then turn it off and try again. could be a security key issue. try a different key if you have one. you could also have a bad starter if none of this helps

Have you another key and fob ?

Try lock/unlock cycle with new key + fob. Your key may be corrupted.

Try also just unlocking the car with the key (not the fob) as soon as you unlock the door put the key in the ignition immediately and see if the car starts.

If you have your radio code it may be worth trying a total reset (leave the car unlocked) disconnect the battery and leave for 20 mins. then reconnect, most systems will then reboot and this MAY help?
Failing all the above it looks like dealer time - more ££ss

good luck !

2003 Jaguar S-Type, programming a key fob

The switchblade key would need to be compatable with your ignition switch barrel. Only normally available from jag dealers who check the Jag owners register before supplying you a replacement.
The older type seperate fobs could be programmed by switching the ignition on and off 8 times (allowing all functions to settle) and on the 9th switch on - press a button on each fob and then switch off. to test use a good fob to lock the car then try the reprogammed fob to unlock/lock. Sometimes this works first time - sometimes needs a couple of tries.

Jaguar S Type V8 Auto 2000 no start

Check all your fuses first as it sounds like you shorted something out, did you turn the jag off before connecting the jump leads, if you did you will be ok but if you did not it is more than likely a fuse.
hope thishelps
