Jump-start Jaguar X-type? it's more complicated than you think.


Jump Start of Vehicle Battery


IF THE BATTERY YOU ARE USING TO JUMP-START THE VEHICLE HAS RECENTLY BEEN CHARGED IT MAY STILL BE GASSING, COVER THE VENT PLUGS OR COVERS WITH A DAMP CLOTH TO REDUCE THE RISK OF EXPLOSION SHOULD ARCING OCCUR WHEN CONNECTING THE JUMP LEADS.

Turn off all electrical ancillary circuits such as radio, lights, indicators etc. If the reason for a flat battery is unknown the condition may be as a result of an electrical short circuit, so care must be taken during the Jump-start process and subsequent to connection to ascertain if this is the case. A short circuit or un-isolated ancillary load can cause arcing when the jump leads are connected, a small 'crackle' is normal but any spark or flash is an indication of a problem that should be rectified before attempting to Jump-Start the vehicle.

Jaguar do not recommended that the vehicle is jump started, and If at all possible it is preferable to replace the flat battery with a suitable fully charged unit rather than jump-start the car. However if it is done it should be carried out by suitably qualified personel. Garage services and services like AA and RAC homestart should be used whenever possible.

Obviously there are occasions when carrying out this proceedure yourself is the only practical way proceed.

If there is no option but to jump-start the discharged battery should be removed and recharged immediately after jump starting to avoid permanent damage.

High quality, heavy duty Jump leads must be used as the current consumption during starting is very high, and a voltage loss will be
exhibited though the jump leads, increasing current requirement.

Make sure that the Jump Start battery is of the same voltage as the vehicle, and suitable to provide the required starting current.

MAKE SURE THAT THE ENDS OF THE JUMP LEADS DO NOT TOUCH EACH OTHER OR GROUND AGAINST THE VEHICLE BODY AT ANY TIME WHILE THE LEADS ARE ATTACHED TO THE BATTERY. ARCING AND VERY RAPID DISCHARGE CAN CAUSE THE BATTERY TO EXPLODE.

Connect the jump leads in the following sequence.
Connect Positive Jump Lead to Jump Start battery positive terminal.
Connect Positive Jump Lead to Vehicle battery positive terminal.
Connect Negative Jump Lead to Jump Start battery negative terminal.
Connect Negative Jump Lead to a suitable vehicle ground point at least, 300 mm (12 in) from the battery terminal e.g. engine lifting bracket, do not do not connect directly to the vehicle battery terminal.

Start the vehicle and rev to 2000 rpm, then allow tickover for 5-10 minutes.

Do not attempt continued repeated starting of the vehicle, this will cause heat build up at the terminals and though the jump leads degrading the leads performance and adding to voltage loss.

Allow 3-4 minutes recovery time for the leads and Jump Start battery between attempts to start.

Before disconnecting the jump leads, switch on the heated rear screen, to reduce the alternator voltage peak when the leads are removed, as this can damage electronic equipment.

Disconnect the jump leads in the reverse order to the connecting sequence taking great care not to short the ends of the leads.

Do not rely on the alternator to restore a discharged battery.
Ensure that the battery is recharged or replaced with a fully recharged unit
as soon as possible.

Following Jump-starting of a compleately discharged battery, you may need to carry out a Green ECM drive Cycle, this will allow the powertrain control module to 're-learn' idle values, and most likely need to re-enter your radio code, details of these can be found at. http://www.bluejag.co.uk

Why wont my radio woek after being jump started


I'm assuming that your vehicle was jump started due to it's battery being depleted. In such a case it is normal for any stereos with start codes to require a four digit PIN to be punched in before operation can commence. In the case that your stereo doesn't require a PIN and doesn't ask for one, then it is possible that your stereo's fuse may be blown or in fact that your stereo is faulty and may be the reason for your power drain.
It will help if you can provide more specifics such as whether or not your stereo shows any illumination lights or screen prompts etc. Perhaps it's on the radio setting, but all you're hearing is static. Please provide more info if possible.

2003 dodge 1500 wont start no power flashing red light in dash


That must be the security system. Check your owner's manual for a reset procedure. Most people will tell you your best bet is the dealership-only they have the electronic testing equipment and expertise to work on factory installed security, especially so if any reprogramming is required. I don't know if that's the case, the owner's manual may shed some light.

If you have a digital display I will recomend you take it to a dealer as it may require a sca diangostics of the body controll module as there are extensive circuits in these climate control systems without the proper tools and know how damage to these circuits may occuur under misguided information

I checked the battery it said good 100% ,but in the morning I try starting my truck a it won't start, I jump start it, and turns on right a way, what can it be?


It is possible the battery has a dead cell. It will charge just fine but will drain overnight and require you to jump start to get going again

Hi i have a 1995 cutlass supreme and it wont start up without a jump what could it be?


either battery or alternator are the most likely causes
if you jump it and it doesnt die-but requires another jump next time you start it-most likely the alternator is not charging the battery and needs replaced

Timing


If you plan on doing your own service, you shouldn't really be without an after-market service manual. Since you didn't name the make and model, you will have to research the two major companies who publish such manuals yourself.
Haynes is my preferred publisher but if they do not offer one for your vehicle, try Chilton.

Jump start won't work on my 2004 Touareg V6


It all depends on several variables.
  • Were the connections clean? (battery cables and posts
  • Did you have a good connection with the jumper cables? (some battery posts are hard to get at and clamping a jumper cable can be difficult)
  • How long were the jumper cables left on? (weaker batteries will require leaving the jumpers on for a longer period of time (15-30 minutes)
  • Was the other car running? (jumping battery to battery will have the same effect as jumping alternator to battery)
  • Was the car with the dead battery warm or cold? (if the car you're trying to start was hot, it may not be the battery that's at fault
If the car you're trying to start is cold, ensure your battery connections are clean (manually cleaning is better but there are some very good sprays that work pretty well.  Leave the jumpers on for a longer period of time with the other car running.
I hope this solves your problem.  Best of luck.
