How long must the car sit before it no starts? When it will not start will the engine crank or will it not make a sound. How long has this been going on and how many miles are in it now? Is the trans manual or automatic and was it rebuilt for this problem or did this start after the rebuild
I talked the to the Jag foreman at the dealer.Have you ever tried to wiggle the shifter lever when `it will not start or put it in neutral and see if it starts with your foot on the brake of course? He told me the transmission range switch (neutral safety switch) is prone to fail and very tricky to adjust when it is replaced.He has even seen brand new replacement switches that are defective right out of the box as well.
