    I presume that the problem is when you have NOT used the car for several days.
    So far I have tracked the problem on my car to something fed by fuse 14 (engine management) in the rear of the 2 fuse boxes under the bonnet. Mine is an intermittent problem giving a drain of 0.6amps (after all the systems have shut down approx 45minutes after anything electrical has operated). I have found if i remove the fuse and then refit it the problem goes away for a period.

1984 jaguar xj6 left lights on for a couple hours,car won't start but lights and radio come on


you need to make sure you have full battery voltage, turning the engine takes more power than a radio or lights,you can try having someone jump your battery to see if that helps,if it starts give it a good run without alot of lights and stuff on to recharge battery

Won't turn over


your starter is shot most likely. the noise is the drive gear at the end of the starter not throwing far enough onto the flywheel. Dont keep starting like this as a new flywheeel will be v expensive if damaged! Have your battery checked out too as a limp battery will not produce the power that the solenoid needs to throw that gear out properly and a new starter will fail too.
Pls rate me if this helps.

After a jump start because of no electrical power, the car will run rough for several days (expected) while it adjusts to your driving habits. I'm not sure about the gears, but I'd try to drive with it like that for a few days and see if it returns to normal.
