My XF has just stopped responding. The car will not start

Customer Question

Hi, my XF has just stopped responding. The car will not start no, lights on dash or response to any buttons. Tried hazard lights they don't come on but repetitive locking unlocking sound from the filler cap and the boot light (inside is flashing). Can't stop this....
Thanks

When you try jump starting the battery and you open the driver door does the touchscreen display the Jaguar logo? Do the hazards work when jumped?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
No nothing changes with jumping. Centre consulo does not come on at all. Trying a hard reset by disconnecting the battery.
Expert:  Richard replied 11 months ago.

Ok I wonder if the battery is the problem. If it has a bad cell it can cause this even when trying to jump start. Since the screen does not come on

Expert:  Richard replied 11 months ago.

We do nt have power in the vehicle. We can try charging the battery or remov it and having your local parts store charge and test it.

Expert:  Richard replied 11 months ago.

The the the other possibility is a failed central junction box but we need to rule out the battery first. Let me know.

seams to have worked we will see in the morning!
Expert:  Richard replied 11 months ago.

OK sounds good. The battery may need to be replaced.
