First thing you need to do is check the battery has not gone flat, check the battery connections are not corroded if they are undo them clean them up with some rough sand/glass/rubbing paper, then see if it will start, check the connections are tight, if it still dont start turn the ignition on the turn the head lights on then turn the key to start the car get some one to look at the lights whilst doing this if they go dim or off then your battery is flat.

if it is flat you need to get your alternator tested as this may not be charging the battery properly or it could be the battery needs replacing

a few of the main reasons a battery will go flat is if you are only doing short journeys and you have the lights on or heater or air con on if you have any of these on and your only doing short journeys then this is your problem, you car is not charging the battery up enough due to the short journeys its best if you are only doing short journeys to only use what you need to use such as lights. anything else causes the battery to drain quicker than it charges.

you could get some jump leads and get some one to jump your car that way then once its started go for a long drive at least an hour to fully charge the battery again, or buy a battery charger and charge you battery that way.

if the you have a picture of a battery on your dashboard that it lit whilst you are driving then this is telling you the battery isnt charging due to a fault with the alternator

hopefully i have given you a few ideas of the kind of problem you are having

2001 jaguar s-type won't crank battery new and charged. Turn the ignition car won't make a sound


many things will cause no start problems could have faulty ignition switch.use test light see if power going to starter if not check ignition fuse to starter.if power going to starter, more likely starter solenoid or starter faulty.if ignition fuse okay and starter and solenoid okay still no start problem could be in the ignition switch or inhibitor switch faulty.code scan for faulty theft security system which will also cause no start conditions.

Not starting up just turning over


I don't have a solution, but I have the same problem. My 2000 jaguar set for about 2 weeks and when I tried to start it, the engine turns over but won't fire or start.
