Question about 1994 Jaguar XJ6

1 Answer

I have a 1997 jaguar 3.2 executive which has an intermittant starting problem. When I turn the key all the panel lights come on but when I turn the key fully nothing happens. This can last for hours and suddenly on a turn it will start perfectly. The starter has been checked and the key switch both appear in order. I personally thought it had something to do with the fuse/ relays in the bboot compartment getting hot (fro mthe exhausts and boot getting so warm in warm weather. Once the car starts there is no problem whatsoever

All lights should go out when you turn to the ignition to the start position in order to save battery power just for the starter

personally, it sounds like your ignition switch is out of adjustment

What causes backfire on a 2002 Jaguar XJ8 Executive.


This is usually caused due to misfire in engine. When did you do a tune up on it? After misfire, usually it melts the honeycone in the cat. converter. If engine light is ON, need to scan it for code

2001 Jaguar XJ8L - Intermittant starting problem -gives Gearbox Fault & when you turn the key ,the engine does not start, battery good. I think It might be a wiring or switch problem. When the car does...


I had the same issue with my 2001 XJ8 and ended up having to have the car rewired from the engine to the battery. I was charged about $300 from a independent automotive electrician. Unfortunately this was after having a new starter and alternator installed! I was told that there were 2 or 3 service bulletins on this issue from Jaguar.

Good luck on this one, it's very frustating and had my car in the shop for about 3 weeks trying to figure this one out.
