Question about 1997 Jaguar XJ6
Was accelerating toward & then slowed down to stop. Suddenly car died. The engine cranked, but would not start. Removed battery & tested at shop. Battery is good. Replaced good battery & once again, tried to start it. Engine cranks but will not start!
Your problem is coming from a vacuum or the crank sensor is dead. Make sure there is no leakand if the problem persist change the crank sensor

first of all your battery will be the problem.. but since u said u have tried new batteries the other causes u need to determine if its fuel or ignition problem... most of the crank start problems are caused by this. so it will solve ur problem for sure..
take a screwdriver pull off one of your spark plug wires at the plug and place the screwdriver in the boot hold it about 10 mm from the engine block and be sure to hold the handle back at the end have a friend spin it over if there is no spark you may have a bad crank sensor or coil pack
does the engine sound normal when cranked? if it sounds weak or spins faster than normal you may have a broken timing belt
there is a access valve on the fuel rail so you can check the fuel pressure if you have an appreate gauge
do you hear the fuel pump run when you turn the key to the run position ? It will only run for a couple of seconds
if you dont hear the pump run try resetting the inertia switch Check your owners manual for the location
