Given the ease of re-start I would check the ignition switch unscrew the shroud behind the wheel to expose the switch and with a volt meter find the perminant live and the switched ignition, sta rt and joggle the wires and see if you can get it to fail.

My 1997 Jaguar xj6 windows stopped working and my right signal light stopped working.


Check the window switch itself. First turn the key in on position and listen if you hear the window motor clicking. If you hear the motor clicking the motor itself is bad. If you don't hear the clicking the switch itself is bad. If more than one window is affected, the window switch is bad. If your right signal just stays lit up, get out of the car while it's on, and see which bulb, the front or rear, is not on. The one that isn't on is the one that needs to be replaced.

1993 Jaguar xj6 won't start, battery drained of power. Went away over xmas and new years so have not used our 1993 Jaguar xj6 for more than 4 weeks (probably more like 6 weeks!) and battery hence lost all...


Is the car immobilized? if so you may have to lock and unlock the car with the key and not the remote.

Is it turning over or just nothing, also starter motor may be jammed. put the car in gear with the hand brake off and push the car forward until you feel the engine turn over. You dont need the keys in the car!

This should free the starter off, sometimes they jam very tight and will not move at all, on these jags. they get rusty quickly if sat about. I had a XJ many years ago great motors.

Good luck.
