My 94 jaguar xj6 battery drains even if the car is turned off what could be causing this

I have less than fond memories of tracing electrical troubles in a Jaguar (though much older than yours). Here's the basic process you need to follow:
1. Pull all the fuses. Does the battery drain overnight?
If yes, then a circuit that is not fuse protected is the problem. Start with starter/solenoid, etc. Disconnect each thing and test with meter.
2. If battery drain stops, then use meter to check current drain on each fuse. One will have more than a trickle.
3. Once you find which system is draining, you can narrow it down further by disconnecting each thing on that circuit.

Yeah, It's a pain, and may take days, but you can find it.

2001 jaguar s-type won't crank battery new and charged. Turn the ignition car won't make a sound

many things will cause no start problems could have faulty ignition switch.use test light see if power going to starter if not check ignition fuse to starter.if power going to starter, more likely starter solenoid or starter faulty.if ignition fuse okay and starter and solenoid okay still no start problem could be in the ignition switch or inhibitor switch faulty.code scan for faulty theft security system which will also cause no start conditions.

I have a 1996 jaguar and I just had the tansmission replaced. The starter has been tested and it is good, but when I turn the ignition I am not getting any power to the starter solenoid. The wire coming...

Its not in the wire that is coming from the battery to the starter. Its in your low current wire that comes from the ignition switch to the starter. That is the wire that probably has too much resistance. Replace that wire and your problem should be over.

Jaguar xj6 bad abs relay blowing the fuse

Could do. I think the ABS relay is housed in the same box as the starter relay. If so, you could have a blown fuse box link. Find the starter relay and see if it clicks when someone else turns the key to start. If not, see if there are volts on to the relay (there should be voltage on one side of the contacts when the ignition is on), there should also be volts on the coil when the ignition is turned to start. If not, check whether there is power to the fuse box (fuse links might have blown). If no power to coil, check gearbox park interlock switch - there is not much that stops a starter motor from turning, even in a sophisticated car like a Jaguar.

Check the power supply from alternator to battery.
Also there should be fuses located close to battery that supply power to main fuse block.
