Question about 2000 Jaguar S-Type

1 Answer

All lights work I neede to jump start the car, but I hear a hissing sound where I turn the key, and before I spend the money for battery, what do u think?

I've had people not want to replace battery for me because of jaguar standards, come on do I really need to spend thousands at the dealership for battery?. I just had the car there and replaced the water pump and I told them I had small oil leak which they told me they would have remove the whole engine, so I opt out and just keep checking, now my car won't start unless I jump it which starts right up. All the lights and stuff work before, it is never just dead

If your battery is in the boot get a portable jump starter and connect it to your current battery ive got a 1995 xjr and i did this because this was cheaper and fixing jags tend to be very expensive so if your battery isin the back of your car do so but if your batterys in the front of the car and you really dont want to spend money on a new battery then get a portable jump starter and then every time you go somewhere you would have to connect the portable jump starter up to your current battery and start it that way

Yes the key needs to be reprogramed to the car. Unfortunately that will have to be done by the dealer. Make sure that you have plenty of proof that you are the owner. They will reprogram it but you will not take posession of the car until you prove it is yours.

Look under the boot handle near the number plate light and you'll see a hole where you can use your key to open the boot.

i am a tech at a ford dealership. it sounds like you have a short some wheres around your steering column that maybe what we call "backfeeding" to other systems. the area where the tilt is on the steering column is a good place to check. also remote starters can cause alot of havoc on a vehicle.

This will need a hands on inspection by a qualified mechanic. i suggest the Kia dealership, but at a minimum it needs to go to a different shop than the one you've been taking it to as they seem to not know what they're doing.

My key fob for my 2006 LaCrosse unlocks the doors & opens the trunk, but doesn't lock the doors. Can it be cleaned, or does it need to be replaced?

It is not clear whether the problem is with the fob or the receiver in the car. You could try replacing the fob (they are available online from various sites) but the receiver will need to be programmed to use it, and that usually requires a trip to a dealership (unless you have access to the OEM service manual). Your best bet is to take it to a dealership and have them diagnose and repair the problem.

Won't start w/o a jump... battery seems to have life tho

Put in a new battery. The computers on newer cars require a so much voltage to kick in the starter. It is not unusual for everything to work in the car and have it not start. This battery would probably start a 96 Jeep by simply cranking a little bit slow. Your remote start may be putting a small draw on the system. It does not take much to run them below the limit. Try a good battery with lots of cold cranking amps. The only thing that makes me question this is the dealerships should have known this. They now even have some fuses you are to pull out if your car is going to sit more than a week. Check your owners manual, it is in there.

Don't go to Jaguar dealership unless you have cash to waste, and the turn 8 times solution may well work but is incorrect. There are other things that you need to be aware of (all explained on the website)

I have two batteries in my 76 gmc cutaway motorhome does the second battery need to be a deep cycle?

Although it has been awhile since I've worked at an RV dealership, I seem to remember that the battery that actually powers the vehicle is usually a standard type battery (usually high amp). The secondary battery is usually a deep cycle. Check with the dealer to make sure. Always use the correct batteries in this application.

Hi there; I've just started getting a "parking

The most basic check for this is - is your battery up to 100% efficiency. the handbrake module is notorious for faults with low voltage or voltage dips. Next is to check that the brake pads and cables are free and in good condition (pads not worn too far down) as these can cause fault indications. The fact that the park-brake still works and does not jam on or off would indicate that the major components are still working and may just need some attention and recalibrating. T o try a recalibration of the park brake - disconnect your battery for 10 Min's (make sure you have your radio code as this will be needed on reconnect) when battery reconnected follow the instructions on your driver display panel and see if this improves your problem. hope this helps - good luck.
