Question about 1994 Jaguar XJ6
Yesterday morning I drove my car out of the carport into the driveway and washed it. After washing the car I drove it back into the carport. An hour or so later, I added water to the windshield wiper fluid container under hood because it was low. I turned the car on again to make sure the amber "low windshield wiper fluid" light was off and it was. About an hour after that, I got in the car to drive it and it would not start. The AAA guy could not jump start the car, all the fuses looked good, I pressed the reset button on the inertia switch, and it still doesn't start. There is an interesting headlight behavior that accompanies this problem that may be a clue as to what the problem is: When I turn the headlight switch on, the lights don't go on. But when I try to start the car, the headlights will turn on and remain on only if the key is in the "engine on" position. When I move the key out of that position and take the key out, the headlights turn off, but the headlight switch still thinks they are on. So when I open the driver's side door, I hear the beeping noise that is a reminder to turn the headlights off and then it stops when I turn the headlight switch off. Meanwhile, the interior lights work normally. I think there is an easy solution to this, maybe detach then reattach the battery 10 minutes later to reset the electrical system? Please help!!!! Thank you.
Try the batter reset thing and it might work .do you have the original key fob thats sets the alarm??
