Can you tell me what the battery size is for a 1999 XJ8
JA: Have you tested the battery with a voltmeter? And can you see if it's leaking or not?
Customer: I have tested it and it does not seem to want to be charged
JA: Are you fixing your XJ8 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I have tried to charge the battery but it will not start the car but I can start it with a hook up to the battery of my Volvo
JA: Anything else you want the Mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: No I just want to know what the batter out put is so I can buy a new one

I just think it took a long time to get a fairly simple answer. The answer I got was great but it took many hours to get it

I am sorry that it has taken so long to answer. Due to a currently very high demand due to the lockdown, there are sometimes delays in answering of questions.

I therefore apologise once again and wish you a pleasant evening.

Thanks for your response but it is still mid morning here (Vancouver, Canada)

Ok, sorry I didn't know you were from Canada. Have a nice day then. :-)
