Customer Question
Have a XK8 and...

Have a XK8 and had flat battery, we have charged battery up but know will not fire up

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you tested the battery with a voltmeter? And can you see if it's leaking or not?

Battery is fully charged

Mechanic's Assistant: What year is your XK8?

2000

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your XK8 yourself? What have you tried so far?

It just wouldn't start yesterday and thought something must have been left on and had not enough power to turn engine on

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

We don't have a mechanic here at the moment as it is Sunday and jaguar dealer won't come out and nobody was in the office yesterday to help as workshop was closed
