If the engine turns over it is not likely an ignition switch. Can you hear the fuel pump kick on? Is there spark at the distributor cap? My thought leans towards either a bum fuel pump or ignition amplifier (ignition module). If you would like a manual to aid in testing, let me know.

2005 jaguar VDP 4.0L. Very hard start. Have replaced map and crank sensor, egr valve and intake.


in what way is it hard to start does the engine turn over fast or slow, fast is low compression in the piston chambers slow can be the battery or the starter motor wearing out. ( starter motor has bushes to turn the motor these wear out and cannot turn the engine over fast enough to start.

your Ignition Switch is bad here is how to replace it
The ignition switch is usually mounted to the steering column and is operated by a linkage rod.
NOTE On column-mounted ignition switches, don't confuse the switch with the lock cylinder and keys. The ignition switch is not normally visible. On some vehicles, the steering column support has to be removed and the column lowered to find the ignition switch. On others, the switch is accessible under the dash.
f32-17gif.gif The ignition switch is operated by the key switch. Courtesy of Ford Motor Company. To replace the switch:
  • Remove the ignition switch wiring harness.
  • Unbolt it from its position.
  • Bolt the new switch into position.
  • Attach the witing harness.

88 jaguar xj6 turns off, and sometimes on again all by itself


Given the ease of re-start I would check the ignition switch unscrew the shroud behind the wheel to expose the switch and with a volt meter find the perminant live and the switched ignition, sta rt and joggle the wires and see if you can get it to fail.

Hey John,
