Your experiencing what is called a battery draw,and you are correct with the key off something is remaining on draining the battery.I dont have a manual,but offer this.take a ohm meter put it on 10 remove the battery ground place the ohm meter between the ground cable and the battery terminal.mark or remember where you pull the fuses from,and begin removing them one at a time,each time look to see it the ohm reading drop to 0.If you find it this way you will know which circuit to search for the draw.most of the time the clock is the problem.O door jam switch,or the dome light can be the problem,hope this helps.

Look at this video. There is a secret keyhole in the trunk lip outside. Put your remote key into it and open the trunk. One in there you can find a light connector and attach a battery charger to it.

You can use one of the plugs that go into the power point/cigarette lighter. Cut the end off add wire to reach a good 12 volt battery. Plug it in. This should give you power to open the boot with the switch.

Your battery might be too flat to keep the car running.
Could be dirty terminals on your battery, or could be a bad cell in your battery, not holding charge. Make sure terminals are clean.

Our 2001s type jaguar's battery (fairly new) keeps going dead after driving it maybe 20 miles or more. What do you think is causing this?


SOUND LIKE ALTERNATOR FAULTY, BUT FIRST CHECK FOR LOOSE OR SLIPPING DRIVE BELT. CHECK ALTERNATOR FUSE. CHECK ALTERNATOR BATTERY FEED WIRE AND VOLTAGE REGULATOR WIRES MAKE SURE NONE OF THE WIRES IS LOOSE, DISCONNECTED OR DAMAGED.

I have a 02 jaguar x-type 2.5 the car is telling me gear box fault, my battery is not staying charged, it also making my trans at funny, like no fluids in it HELP!!!!


could be low on tranny fluid ,their is no dipstick on gearbox you have to lift it up with a four poster ramp to gain access ,if its charging but battery going flat then it may be time for a new battery ,and these cars have a monster battery in the boot under the floor ,Now the diesel variant with a manual gearbox are worth money though .

Hi can any one help I have a jaguar 2.0 tdci X-type and the battery keeps going flat , there doesn't seem to be any pattern to this , i can leave it for 8 hrs and it will start.but leave it for 1 hrs...


Have your charging system tested. If you have a voltmeter you can test if alternator is putting out. Connect voltmeter to your battery while car is running your volt readings should be 12.6 min and 14.8 max. The "+" battery terminal hot doesn't sound right.

2000 jaguar type s battery is dead after not driving car for 2 days


One possible cause is water in the boot well. It seeps into the wiring loom and shorts. This would drain the battery. If this is the problem, dry out the well and keep it dry.

If your battery is older, it may be leaking acid... which goes right down to the negative connection wire.... if that eats throught then you have no circuit.... happened to my car. Go take a look at your battery cables.... also, check the battery fluid levels... even though you hear it is a maint. free battery - sometimes you still have to add water now and then!
