1995 Jaguar XJS Question: 1995 Jaguar XJS V12 won't start? Doesn't appear to be getting any spark...

 

Question

1995 Jag XJS V12, 6.0L V12, Belmar, NJ, October 17, 2012, 13:14

This Jaguar is completely original right down to the factory installed Pirelli tires. Vehicle has less than 14,000 original miles and has been properly stored in the Winter months since new. When it cranks, there doesn't appear to be any spark? The vehicle just continues to crank without turning over. The vehicle has never been towed; I would prefer to hire a mechanic to inspect the issues where it is stored. However, a client advised that I should post the problem here as it may be a simple problem to solve. With less than 14,000 miles, perhaps it's a simple solution?

    It's the crank sensor... $65.00 part from Jaguar and less than one hour of labor. She'll fire right up. *A very common problem if the Jaguar sits for long periods of time... Remember, this is a very complicated engine management systems used on the 6.0L V12. You need to at least idle the engine periodically if in storage. 14,000 miles? WOW! That was the finest XJS ever produced. There were only 78 or so 6.0L V12 Convertibles produced in 1995. A Very rare cat! Good luck my friend... Cheers!
