Check all the battery cables and any wires connected to battery for corrosion and breakage. When cars are stored for long periods of time the electric wires and cables become corroded and can be cut in two, not makeing connection. ay not be able to see this with the naked eye. Can also do the wiggle test, by wiggleing the wires connected to battery while having the key in the on poition, with the emergency brake on, wheels blocked and car in park. listen and see if it makes any sound as you wiggle each cable and wire. You should hear the alarm inside the car, watch and see if the lights come on and off as you do this as well. (turn on the head lights before hand, and watch the you wiggle the wires. if they do come on and off as you do this, you may need to clean or replace that wire.

I have a 1993 XJ6 Jaguar Soverign that has the fuel pump out.

I had this problem several years ago. Found a new fuel pump for about $20.00. Removed tank and discovered it was a bayonet connector in the wire harness $(70.00) not the motor. I had to lower the drive shaft to get to the fastners which tie the tank to the bottom of the trunk. I still have the motor; will consider selling it. (903 732-3912). - Philip
