The Battery May Drain Due to a Sicking Front Automatic Seat Belt on Jaguar XJ6

The front automatic seat belt commonly sticks in its track and fails to properly operate, causing a safety issue. This also causes an electrical draw that will drain the battery and may cause the car not to start. The dealer may cover (or partially cover) the repair costs.
