Sounds like an issue with the car's immobiliser. In order to prevent theft by disconnecting the alarm system when the power is cut the immobiliser is programmed to interrupt the car restart when power resumed. You will need to reset the alarm code.

2003 xtype will not turn on,switch problem it looks like ,i removed etc to clean and now its hard to get the switch to even wants to start whats my problem someone please

has the battery been disconnected? If so, I have heard of this problem. The on board computer speaks to the car constantly and after 10 days of non charging the battery is flat! The only solution is a visit to your nearest Jag garage to get it all re-programmed, this solution would also include Battery disconnection. Check with a Jag garage first, it's free to ask, but this sounds like your problem. A major design flaw if you ask me.

Red light on battery jaguar xtype

A red battery symbol on your dash indicates that your charging system detected a failure. Your car might be running and working fine but its probably because your battery is in excellent condition and you are running everything from your battery. Unfortunately, your battery will deplete and cause your car to die even while driving so be very careful and have your local shop check your vehicle for a bad alternator or similar criteria. Try not to drive your vehicle at night or with the A/C on until the problem is corrected.

I have a 54 plate jag xtype and the nsf headlight bulb keeps blowing, the most recent one lasted just 3 days, the one before lasted only 4 months. is it a wiring problem or a jag problem?

my best guess on this would be that there is some undue vibration on that light assembly or some moisture getting in ... do you change both bulbs at the same time? you may want to change the other bulb at the same time as this one just to see if this solves your probelm. That should be standard practice on all cars and not just jags ... I have a passion for Jags.

My 03 x type jag wont even try to turn over? Dash lights are fine but windows, mirrors and starter dead! All the dash lights and monitor and radio work but wont even tryto start? Transmittion wont come out...

Sounds like all of the high drain devices are disabled due to a weak battery. You are still getting dash lights and radio because they are very low drain devices. Try charging the battery to test for now. It could be a failing battery, or your alternator and or voltage regulator could be going out and not charging the system. But first, try to charge the battery, and see if you can start it, if you can, let it run for at least 10 minutes. If your alternator/VR is going out or is already out, you should have a guage, or idiot light telling you that you have low voltage. If its a light, you should see a red battery lit up on the dash, if its a guage, it should be directly in the middle +/- a little. If you are able to run the vehicle for a while with no light coming on, or guage showing low voltage, its safe to say you drained the battery, or it is failing. If its a few years old or more, i'd go ahead and replace it. Hope this helps :)
