Question about 2000 Jaguar S-Type
It is the battery. it has enough energy to turn the lights and radio on but not enough current flow to turn the starter motor. it could be caused by a bad battery, loose or corroded connections on the battery terminals or the starter or an undercharging alternator.
the problem could be that your alternator belt is loose or that the alternator is undercharging and that the battery is gradually running down as it is not being fully recharged by the charging system. Or, it could simply be that the 'new' battery is failing (that does happen)
the problem though is definetly with the battery. take the car to the place that put the battery in and have them check it out. I'm sure you'll find that to be your problem
also, to get your car there, jump start it. when the car starts with a jump you' will have confirmed the problem is with the battery being dead. Again, you'll have to have the charging system checked to see if that's why the battery is running down
hope that helps
