Question about 2003 Jaguar X-Type
Not run since January 2014. Battery was dead so I charged it with30 amp battery charger and it turns over well but wont fire. I then tried boost on the charger. did I flood the engine or did the charger blow a fuse ?? never did this before. spends its life under a fitted cover in a garage.

Sounds like the old nikasil problem.Remove all of the spark plugs and squirt oil down each bore,replace plugs and she should fire up.

something wrong here .. battery tests good and starter tests good and it wont spin the engine over. ok what if you jump start it ? if it spins the engine the battery is shot.. if the starter is spinning and not turning the engine the starter or selonoid is bad .. thats got to be all there is to it .. thanks again Jerry

I had the same issue with my 2001 XJ8 and ended up having to have the car rewired from the engine to the battery. I was charged about $300 from a independent automotive electrician. Unfortunately this was after having a new starter and alternator installed! I was told that there were 2 or 3 service bulletins on this issue from Jaguar.
Good luck on this one, it's very frustating and had my car in the shop for about 3 weeks trying to figure this one out.

Sounds like you have a current drain on the battery even when switch off. With the ignition off put a ammeter between the negative lead and the negative terminal of the battery and measure the current drain. If detected now remove and reinsert each fuse in turn noting the change in current flow. By this process you will isolate the offending circuit. Interior glove-box or trunk lights can be the very devil since like a fridge light you can never tell if they go off when they should.
