Either the starter is not engaging all the way or there is a bad spot on the ring gear, remove the starter and turn the engine and check the ring gear if its good then look at the starter

My 1993 jaguar will not not start new ignition swich in and it start up 5or6 time the next day it will not start just make a click under the hood


Possibly the starter solenoid mounted on the starter. When it won't start, you could check for power at that small solenoid wire on the starter while the key is held in crank or start position. If you have power then and there, the solenoid should be replaced. If no power on that wire when key is held in start, it is somewhere else in the start circuit, like the neutral safety switch, or clutch switch if manual, or the starter relay or the wiring associated with it.

Car has new fully charged battery yet it will not turn over not even a sound, yet the electronics work , is there a ignition relay switch


Hi my name if Tom and I am here to help you.

If the battery is good and the car will not turn over it is usually the starter or starter solenoid. The solenoid makes a clicking sound when the key is turned.

If you take the starter off, the starter solenoid fits on top of the starter. You can take both to an auto parts store and they will test it for you while you watch.

Now you will hear the click and it will start or not. Sometimes as the starter gets old it heats up when you use the starter a lot(cold weather start ups).

If you need help with how to remove the starter, let me know and I can walk you through it. Also, please take the time to grade how helpful I was to you.
I can then be of greater help to you and others in the future. Feel free to call or email me.

1993 Jaguar xj6 won't start, battery drained of power. Went away over xmas and new years so have not used our 1993 Jaguar xj6 for more than 4 weeks (probably more like 6 weeks!) and battery hence lost all...


Is the car immobilized? if so you may have to lock and unlock the car with the key and not the remote.

Is it turning over or just nothing, also starter motor may be jammed. put the car in gear with the hand brake off and push the car forward until you feel the engine turn over. You dont need the keys in the car!

This should free the starter off, sometimes they jam very tight and will not move at all, on these jags. they get rusty quickly if sat about. I had a XJ many years ago great motors.

Good luck.

Jaguar xj6 bad abs relay blowing the fuse


Could do. I think the ABS relay is housed in the same box as the starter relay. If so, you could have a blown fuse box link. Find the starter relay and see if it clicks when someone else turns the key to start. If not, see if there are volts on to the relay (there should be voltage on one side of the contacts when the ignition is on), there should also be volts on the coil when the ignition is turned to start. If not, check whether there is power to the fuse box (fuse links might have blown). If no power to coil, check gearbox park interlock switch - there is not much that stops a starter motor from turning, even in a sophisticated car like a Jaguar.

89 Jaguar XJ6 engine not turning over


it could be an ignition switch,when it happens try wiggling the key while holding it in start position. also is there a clicking, or a clunk sound when problem arises, if there is then the starter solenoid is bad (most starters have the solenoid mounted right on it) so replace starter if you here a click/clunk noise w/starting
