Question about 1997 Jaguar XJ6
Check the battery with a volt meter. Place the probes from the meter inverted which means positive from the meter to negative on the battery and negative from the meter to the positive one the battery. MAKE SURE YOU STE THE METER TO THE DC & NOT TO THE AC MODE BEFORE YOU TURN THE METER ON. Now start the engine and see if a reading shows of 14 - 15 volts. If so the diode is bad in the altenator. The diode suppose to keep the current running only one way. If the current is running both directions the altenator does not charge the battery completely and the battery light will come on this way also
