Usually you will need to disconnect battery, wait 5 minutes, reconnect battery, turn vehicle to on position but do not try starting. Wait 15 minutes with key on. Turn off vehicle, wait one minute. Lock door, unlock door. Try starting.

It wont shift due to a fail safe mode(limp in) You need to have transmission scanned for codes and have failures/ failed parts replaced.

2000 Grand Jeep Cherokee Limited, V 8. Just died at a red light. We got push it to the side of the road and 2-3 mins it started. This has happen 3-4 times. What could be the problem?


Right after it stalls (and you are in a safe place) Turn the key on and listen for the fuel pump to come on (in the tank). If you don't hear it, likely it is going bad. When they do that, the pump gets hot and binds...after it cools off it starts working again.
If you can hear the pump, chances are that the crank position sensor is failing. The symptoms are nearly identical.

My 03 x type jag wont even try to turn over? Dash lights are fine but windows, mirrors and starter dead! All the dash lights and monitor and radio work but wont even tryto start? Transmittion wont come out...


Sounds like all of the high drain devices are disabled due to a weak battery. You are still getting dash lights and radio because they are very low drain devices. Try charging the battery to test for now. It could be a failing battery, or your alternator and or voltage regulator could be going out and not charging the system. But first, try to charge the battery, and see if you can start it, if you can, let it run for at least 10 minutes. If your alternator/VR is going out or is already out, you should have a guage, or idiot light telling you that you have low voltage. If its a light, you should see a red battery lit up on the dash, if its a guage, it should be directly in the middle +/- a little. If you are able to run the vehicle for a while with no light coming on, or guage showing low voltage, its safe to say you drained the battery, or it is failing. If its a few years old or more, i'd go ahead and replace it. Hope this helps :)

Jaguar s/type wont start had flat battery now replaced x.reg 2000


Yes the key needs to be reprogramed to the car. Unfortunately that will have to be done by the dealer. Make sure that you have plenty of proof that you are the owner. They will reprogram it but you will not take posession of the car until you prove it is yours.
