WILL NOT START

1996 Jaguar XJ6 • 5 cylinder Automatic •

1996 Jaguar XJ6 wont crank engine. Able to crank engine thru relay only. Headlights would not turn off, had to pull fuse to turn off, central locking system not working, turn signals not working, security system no working, fuel filler cap wont open, interior dash does light up to show a bulb failure and check engine light appears. Ran a diagnostics and EMC showed no faults. Battery had not been disconnected prior to this test. Checked all fuses and relays as well as grounds, all good. What is problem and how do I resolve it? Please help, desperate. Sincerely, Mary

Check and test the transmission range switch and ignition switch

Importantly as well that I failed to mention in question is that car recently failed smog. Solution?

I'm a little confused as to what that would have to do with the head lamps not working, turn signal indicators not working, central locking system not working, etc

What would be the cause for the ECM to not record faults when on board dash shows faults and vehicle is disabled due to faults? I ran an OBDII test and it read NO FAULTS. How can this be? Desperate for help. Thank You.
