S type jaguar won't start.won't turn over , lights come on jn dash ,you can also hear a clicking sound in the fuse panel on the passenger side.


If the starter is rapidly clicking when you turn the key, then it is insufficient battery current. You may enough power to power the lights, but not enough to keep the starter engaged. Try connecting a jumper. If a relay is clicking, you will need hands-on professional diagnosis

01' Jaguar XJR Starter location?


If you get just a click you should first check battery charge and all battery connections. The click is probably the solenoid kicking in but without enough battery to turn over the engine.
