Question about 1989 Jaguar Vanden Plas

CAר won't Start

Left the lights on and the battery died. Had a friend jump it for me with no luck. There was a warning over the battery warning that if the car was jumped or the battery replaced without taking out the fuse for the car phone it would cause serious damage. After jumping it i went and bought a new battery and installed it. It started up and ran fine I drove it around for about an hour or so and it worked perfect all day yesterday. Then this morning it wouldn't crank. Lights came on , radio, etc but it didn't start. Does anyone know what could have happened because of the phone?? Thanks

    i have the same problem almost. the car cranked but didnt start, a mechanic said it was the fuel pump so i replaced the fuel pump but when i finished and went to start the car, it didnt crank. all the accesores and lights turn on. I charged the battery and then replaced with new one. but no success. btw in the AC screen when i put key to the ON position i get a couple of beeps and an ERR message from the AC screen. i dont know if this has anything to do with the problem. thanks

Check the firewall cables(thick black cables with a rubber both on them, there are two on each side of the car, at least on 95-97), ther are most lekly corroded. whach for sparks when cleaning.

2001 s10 will jump start. After it sits, I try to start it, it won't start, but the ignition keeps dinging after I turn it off and take the key out. I can jump start it and the dinging stops.


its sounds like a bad ignition switch-try to jiggle it and see if its stop after you have turned key off- also those dinging sounds are to warn you that you have left something on -usually headlights or maybe even your dome lights which would account for your battery dying

Hi there !

I won't say its an alternator problem because the alternator only charges the battery when its on, And it should start with the jump cables even if the battery and the alternator are bad. your Issue is not clear. Does the car start when you jump it ?

My battery died and now the van wont start.


I have no idea about the factory alarm resetting itself, but I DO have experience with having someone leave lights on and jumping the battery the wrong way. Unless you are 100% positive this is no the case, make sure it was not fried on the jump. If the cables were crossed, you might have some wires, therefore rendering your on-board computers to ****. =) Good Luck.

Also, contact a dealer via PHONE (so they can not trick you into being charged by looking at your van) in regards to factory alarm.

The heavy draw on the charging system may have put it in a low voltage condition which will trigger results like that. Double check your battery connections and you may want to have the battery tested. It might be wearing out. Good luck. Please rate me so I know if I helped.Thanks.

Battery dies in extremely cold weather


Sounds to me like you have a weak batt. also if you rear lights are sticking on some times that could drain it
