It would not be the alternator since it only works when the engine is running. Could be the starter, the neutral safety switch, or a wiring issue. I am assuming the anti-theft system is functioning.
Someone would need to check for power at the starter to proceed.

SOURCE: 2000 Jaguar S-Type Battery

I had to change the battery in my 1999 S-Type, you will need the radio code, I also needed to reprogramme the board computer which is easy if you have your manual at hand, also the car might act strangely for a while, but this is explained in your users manual, nothing to worry about.

Hope this helps.

Yes,... if you are little mechanically minded, and keen, I don´t see why not.

Remember to disconnect the battery.

Support the car safely on axle stands, if jacking up.

And watch those knuckles...(Ouch!).. undoing those starter, bell housing bolts !

There seems to have been a run of Jaguar S Type, & X Type Starter problems of late, here on FixYa, so you are not alone.

Good Luck !

A FixYa rating would be appreciated ...Thank you !

SOURCE: 2002 Jaguar XJ8 VDP....installed new battery (more

It is posible that the extra boost has blown the ignition fuse. Look under the dash on the left or right hand drivers side and find the fuse box. On the outer cover should be a diagram of the fuses installed. Look for ignition. If you don't have a daigrm then start pulling fuses one at a time and checking the wire in the fuse to see if it has seperated, (Melted), and replace it. There may be more then one fuse that burnt so check them all and replace them back in the same spot. This is why i say one at a time. Some vehicles have an ignition fuse under the hood as well. If you can't find the fuse in the car then look out under the hood. Some of these fuses under the hood will be larger but should have a window to look in and check for damage. Let me say this first before you go fuse hunting. When trying to start does it turn over good and fast. If it is a sluggish turn over then recheck the battery termanals to be sure they are tight and cleaned of all corrosion. You should not be able to twist the cable end with your hand. Let me know how it turns out. I hope I have been of some help, Good Luck, The Raz

SOURCE: jaguar xj12 1994 alternator not

The alternator has to have 12 volts to excite it. The 12 volts comes from the ignition switch, then through the ECM then to the alternator. Make sure that when you turn the key on that you have 12 volts on the alternator. It will be the small wire. The larger wire will have because this is the output to the battery. You need to check the input.

2000 Jaguar SType New battery is completely dead after three days, starter and alternator are both good, and we have disconnected radio believing it might be a drain, what about fuses?

We had a similar situation and we found out that the battery was the cause , even though it was new.

Try with another battery that you know is good from another car, if still having a problem , check the starter for drainage

Battery died put in a new one now radio wont come on

You will need to reset the wireless code to turn on the radio. Removing the battery indicates to the radio that it is being stolen and the code cuts in to make the radio worthless. The code may be in the owners hand book in the wireless section. If it is not and the radio is factory fit then the dealer will have a record of the code for the wireless fitted to that vehicle in the factory. Contact dealer customer support and get it from them

Does the vehicle start?
If not, then check battery voltage. If below 12.5 volts, then recharge the battery and retest system charging voltage (should be around 14 volts)
If battery is fine and vehicle starts, then check fuse box and wiring loom connectors.

I had to replace my battery and which inturn disabled my radio. does anyone know what the code is for 01 Jaguar S-type and how to put the code in?

The radio code is vehicle specific. It is usually found on a card that is supplied with the vehicle when new with the owners manual. If you cannot find it, you will need to see a Jaguar dealer and show proof of ownership of vehicle. They will then have to get the serial number from the radio itself and look it up in their system to get your code. Unfortunately they will probably charge you $ for doing this.
