Car Batteries

If the keys in a 2000 Jaguar XK8 are left in the on position all night is the battery dead or is it the alternator that is the problem?

I would expect that the battery is dead; however, instead of jump starting the car, it is far easier on your car's charging system to place a battery charger on it for about 6 hours then start the car. Otherwise, the alternator tries to charge the dead battery at a wide open rate and it can damage your alternator. Mark

Disconnect the battery and then reconnect.

Place a multimeter on the battery so that you can read the voltage. And then starts pulling fuses out one by one until you have the lowest highest reading. Whenever there is a significant change, that circuit will have your problem.

If you own a Jaguar with the battery in the trunk and it is normally opened by a button or switch inside the car but the battery is dead...well open the hood, pull another car or just a battery up to it. With a jumper cable hook the negitive battery terminal from the battery to a solid metal part of the engine assembly...then with a smaller jumper wire hooked to positive battery terminal hook the other end to the large post coming out of the you might want to hook up the small jumper wire to the large post coming out of the rear of the alternator first... because if you touch it to any part that's metal it will doing this you will send power into the electrial system and you can now use the switch to open the trunk....

I just changed the battery to my 2002 Jaguar X-type and it is just how you change the battery to any other car. Some people like to buy manufacturer product so if you buy a Jaguar battery, take out the old battery and put in the new. If you buy a compatible battery, at an auto store, it works just as well but you have to fill the sides so it can fit and it won't move from side to side since a jaguar battery seems to be wider than the standard types. They sell the foam at the auto store, you just have to put it on the side and cover the battery back up.i did non of dat i found it pips
