Have you removed the acessory drive belt, (serpentine belt) to remove all of the possible accessories from the crankshaft before trying to turn the crank? I have had this problem before and the alternator bearing had failed and wouldn't let the engine turn over.

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.

S type jaguar won't start.won't turn over , lights come on jn dash ,you can also hear a clicking sound in the fuse panel on the passenger side.

If the starter is rapidly clicking when you turn the key, then it is insufficient battery current. You may enough power to power the lights, but not enough to keep the starter engaged. Try connecting a jumper. If a relay is clicking, you will need hands-on professional diagnosis

01' Jaguar XJR Starter location?

If you get just a click you should first check battery charge and all battery connections. The click is probably the solenoid kicking in but without enough battery to turn over the engine.

2001 S type: starter turns but engine won't crank.

Sounds like the solenoid in the starter is not engaging fully. Is the starter making a nasty whirring sound? That could either be a fault in the starter which can be resolved with reconditioning (much cheaper than a new one) or an alternator to battery problem that is preventing enough current getting to the starter. The latter usually just allows the starter to 'click' but not turn, however with your recent problems you may wish to try and jump start the car from another vehicle and then check the votage going across your battery is at 13v to 14v. making sure the other car is no longer connected to yours first so you know what your alternator is producing. Be surprised if it isn't a problem in your starter to be honest.
