My boyfriends 1999 Jaguar XJ8 Vanden Plas' battery does not seem to hold a charge. The car sits all winter long and come spring time I have to jump it to get it running. Last year was the first year I had the car and had to do that and it seemed to work fine after that one jump start. Now this year after jump starting it the one time, it does not want to start again. All other accessories in the car seem to work, but it won't start unless I jump start it again and then once I turn the car off it won't start again unless jump started. I believe this could be a bad battery needing replacement but am wondering if there could be some other problem. If someone could please respond I would appreciate it.
