1996 Jaguar Vanden Plas Q&A
1996 Jaguar Vanden Plas Question: wont start
Sometimes a starter can fail by being quiet, in that if the solenoid has failed, then the starter will not make a sound. So, the best way to check this is to check the trigger wire on the solenoid ( the small wire ) on the starter from the ignition switch. You need to see a 12 volt signal from the ignition switch when you try to crank the car over. This often requires 2 people. If you have the signal and the battery has at least 12.5 volts then I would suspect a bad starter. If there is no 12 volt signal, then you need to inspect the ignition switch and find out why. - dandd
