Question about 2003 Jaguar X-Type
I have connected the cables positive to positive and negative to negative post on host car and the negative on car that needs charging is grounded to bolt as directed. But will not charge
First make sure the last cable is the ground cable,when you place it you should see a very small spark just before you let go for the connection to be complete.IF the attempted jump fails you probably need a new battery,the old one just doesn't have it any more.

If you battery is totally flat then the host battery will be trying to start the car and charge the battery
Get hold of a second set of jump leads
Connect both positives to the positive post on the battery
Connect both negatives to any clean unpainted part of the engine block as far away from the battery as possible.
That way you impart the maximum amount of current to the engine via the leads and you put a few Ohms of impedance between the dead battery and the jump battery
If your battery is really flat you may need to have it put on a heavy duty booster set to kick it back to life
