Question about 1988 Jaguar XJ6
If the battery is good and it wont start then you may have a bad starter, you can test it with a test light, have someone test for power at the small wire on the starter while you try to start it if they get power to the small wire on the starter then starter is bad.

SOUND LIKE STARTER FAULTY OR A BAD SAFETY TRANSMISSION NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH WILL CAUSE NO START CONDITIONS.

If it does turn over and electrical works, then the problem is unlikely the battery. You can try jump starting. If it cranks when jump-starting it may be a weak battery, starter motor or alternator, but I don't think that this is the problem.
Check if there is spark on all cylinders. Do a code scanning (this car is OBD1, you will need to do the scan at the dealer place or to find a BMW OBD1 tool- Universal OBD2 scanner will not work on a 1994 BMW). If the codes return misfire or mixture related errors check fuel pressure, check sensors and parts that determine the mixture (MAF/MAP, AIT, O2 sensors, IAC and EGR system), check the vacuum system for leaks and check the crank sensor.

SOURCE: the car won't start; lights,
Check the starter and the starter relay or fuse. A client of mines car was doing the same thing, it ended up being two issues, the starter not working anymore, and a relay that was bad. If I am not mistaken everything should be labeled in the fuse box under the hood and will tell you where the fuse/ relay is for your vehicle

You have two main possibilities. First would be the starter. Another would be the solenoid. You might want to check all your connections first and make sure they are free of corrosion.

What is the year and the model? Have the battery cables been cleaned and checked to make sure you have a good connection? Has the battery been load tested on a battery tester? Based on all that you say you have a low voltage problem, if the battery hasn't been properly tested do so, any Autozone will do it for free.
