    Move the vehicle with the good battery near the Jag.

    Connect the + terminal on the Jag to the + terminal on the other vehicle through a jumper cable.

    Connect the other side of the jumper cable to the - terminal on the other vehicle. Take the other end of that cable and connect to a solid ground point on the Jag.

Get a set of jumper cables. Positive side of the battery goes to the + side or red. and negative goes to - or black. Do the same on the other car. let it charge for awhile before attempting to start

Left 1999 XK8 in garage over winter months. Battery discharged. Recharged and reconnected. Have started car 10-12 journeys, and each ignition sounded like the battery was getting weaker and weaker. Battery...


Yes batterys can come apart inside. The plate breakdown and drop into bottom not allowing charge anymore. Low charge can do alot of weird things to you jag. Replace the battery and when you do have them check alternator charging ability while your there. Almost all auto store will do this for free.

Can not locate battery in my 2000 xk8 and the car wont start. It attempts to turn over but wont start Im trying to get a jump start but we can not find battery.


If the engine cranks normal, then the battery is good. You are looking at no fuel or no spark. Bad crank shaft position sensor or bad fuel pump or fuel pump relay most likely, could be other things less likely

Jag. with intermittent charging of battery(1997 xk8).


I'm sure you mean Volts not amps. That ALT. has an internal voltage regulator when they get hot they are known to fail to be sure have the carging system at a garage it runs about $50.00 but better than buying an alternator that may not be broken.

What is stability control? light came on


Hi

Sounds like usual gremlins kicked in to your computer, with the flat battery.

Disconnect both terminals of the battery, switch on the ignition to start position 6 times, to clear the computer memory.

Reconnect Positive terminal + then Negative --- and start engine, and check it out.

I am pretty sure it will not come back on.

Also I suggest you get the battery tested soon as possible.

( Is it the original battery ?) If so, its shot !

Good Luck !

Please give me a FixYa rating please !

Let me know how you get on .

John.

1999 Jag XK8 will not start. Cannot locate battery or terminals. Can you jump start with cables in order to get serviced without towing ?


The battery is either in your trunk or like the xj8 which is under the back seat, and yes you can jump start it when you locate the battery.
hope this helps

Corniche vs jag xk8 4.0 soft top


this is the most expencive and grandest in the rolls royce range coming in at £250000 thats a lot of money, so what do you get? to be honest i think this car is a rip off, ok ok you cant deny the quallity and build of this car, but isnt it the same for all rollers? sure, you get a turbocharged v8 producing 544lb ft of torque but you could get that with a ford mustang. i dont think that the interior of this car is that much better than that of a top of the range jag. in fact at nearly £?200000 less the jag xk8 4.0 soft top is a much better buy.
