Having problems with your 1994 Jaguar XJ6 ?

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 power after sitting idle for so long. Furthermore it seemed to start briefly when jumpstarted but then went dead as there was no fuel in the tank so went and bought £10 worth but still won't start! The radio and alarm has power and the lights come on and also lights on the dash board when we ho

Replace your relays on your firewall! Sounds awfully similar to a problem I had
Is the car immobilized? if so you may have to lock and unlock the car with the key and not the remote.
\015\012
\015\012Is 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!
\015\012
\015\012This 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.

My interrior lights, radio, and power side view mirrors suddenly don't work on my 1999 Dodge Neon?! --My car wouldnt start about a week ago so I replaced the battery & starter to find that it still wasn't starting. So I took it to a garage thinking it was an electrical issue. Well, they sent me home with a new starter and it's been starting fine now (knock on wood). But every since they've changed it my power side view mirrors, interior lights, and radio wont work when they were before. HELP?!

F-250 Super Duty 7.3l diesel. Truck wont start. Just clicks at starter and then dash lights and all relays flash off and on constantly.

I have a 2001 BMW 7 Series and just a moment ago, I went to start the car and it wouldn't start, I get a clicking noise instead. All the lights are working fine, so I am thinking it has nothing to do with the battery. I know when a battery is dying/dead in a vehicle, you either get low or no electric power. This is not the case with my car, everything else is normal. It just wouldn't start, only clicking instead. I haven't driven the car in about a week, it was working perfectly last time I did

My battery light started flickering a couple weeks ago and then my check engine light came on. my car then started freaking out and died. we tested the battery and the alternator, the battery was fine, but the alternator tested bad. we replaced the alternator and the lights on the dash went away for about a week. then the same thing started happening again. we tested them again and once again it was my alternator. what could be the problem?

Electrical??? A few weeks ago my battery light started coming on while I was driving just suddenly. So I took it in and battery checked out fine and so did the alternator. Just tonight the battery light came on again then the abs light then all my lights started to dim, battery dropped low and when I push on on my breaks to slow the RPM needles starts jumping around. When I made it home the truck died and wont start now. Any suggestions on what it could be. I have given up on this truck.


Since you've checked your voltage at the battery and alternator and they are ok, I would say it seems like an electrical issue. You need to put the truck on a diagnostic scanner to see what part (electrical part) is malfunctioninig. ... 2001 Ford Explorer Sport Trac
