Having problems with your 1999 Jaguar XK8 ?
2001 S type: starter turns but engine won't crank.
\015 The battery for my 2001 S Type was dead. The battery was recharged. The starter turns but the engine won't crank. Had no issues other than the battery.\015
Sounds like the solenoid in the starter is not engaging fully. Is the starter making a nasty whirring sound? That could either be a fault in the starter which can be resolved with reconditioning (much cheaper than a new one) or an alternator to battery problem that is preventing enough current getting to the starter. The latter usually just allows the starter to 'click' but not turn, however with your recent problems you may wish to try and jump start the car from another vehicle and then check the votage going across your battery is at 13v to 14v. making sure the other car is no longer connected to yours first so you know what your alternator is producing. Be surprised if it isn't a problem in your starter to be honest.
