Question about 2002 Jaguar X-Type
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.

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 !

Probably the heater control valve, had same issue, started with one side not hot, then erratic, hot then cold while heat is set to hot, now both side are cold to lukewarm. diagnosed as heater control valve, common for jag s-types and x-types. located on the passenger side, down low the side of the radiator, it has several hoses into and out of valve, and a electrical connector.

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

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.
