my 97 jaguar vandam plas was running good drove it to church parked ,came back out now it wont crank it did this to me one other time but I waited for an hour and it started up ,so after starting I drove it home got up the next day now it won t say a word . I replaced the battery, starter neutral safty swt. checked fuses and still no crank oh it did try to start from the starter
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 6 months ago.

and did it start from starter by jumping it ?

Do you a have a security led light flashing or staying steady on in the dash ?

pleased let me know

Thank you

I could have started it but I didn t want to mess anything up no itd not a led light on the dash
Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 6 months ago.

it looks there is no signal from switch to starter ,

1- we need to know if it is an igntion swicth problem ?

2- Or a security alarm triggered and causing the signal loss

3- Starter relay problem

4-I sent you a diagram of all you fuse boxes , one box next to the air box has a starter relay in it , pull it out and replace with a know good one and see if that will make a difference and let me know the diagram will show the location of the starter relay & also look for the igntion positive relay and check that too

5-Have tried a master reset , by simply disconnecting battery cables ( both negative & positive ) hold together for 20sec , then let it go , wait 10 mini then reconnect battery ) this will show if any module reset and made start again ?

Let me know

Thank You

If the diagram I sent you is hard to see the starter relay ,, it will be the first relay in the fuse box closer to your airbox , it will be the first relay inline starting from outside to inside .

Those fuse box cover will have a label ID where u can look at it to for starter relay location

Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 6 months ago.

starter relay is the in the box top right corner , it will be the first relay in the engine fuse box towards outside the car .

Expert:  Chad Farhat replied 6 months ago.

The fuse box in the engine compartment next to the airbox ( where air filter goes ) starter relay is in that fuse box last one at the end of the box
