Cant get any life on my 1991 Jaguar XJS to start it. Battery

Customer Question

Can't get any life on my 1991 Jaguar XJS to start it. Battery fully charged but seems as if there is an isolator switch preventing starting. Any advise to get it going?

Hello Edward and welcome! I'm Billy and i will assist you with this.

My apologies for the delay, thank you for your patience.

Hold the ignition in the "start" position for 5 seconds to enable the starter to operate. If this fails to start the vehicle, repeat theprocedure.The back-up battery will recharge from the vehicles main battery, which will be charged from the vehicle charging system.The alarm system must also be recoded by pressing both the remote transmitter buttons a total of five times for both units.

Get back to me with your results, or if further assistance is needed.

Regards, Billy

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Tried your procedure.....nothing happened.


Help!

Hello Edward,

This needs some major diagnostic procedure as If an alarm system fault exists and it cannot be traced using the alarm system diagnostic procedure, it is possibleto test the input/output signals to the alarm control module using a digital volt-ohmeter.
So you need to check pin by pin and here are the values (the cleanest copy i could find, since this is an older model):
