Engine Mechanical problem
1998 Jaguar XJ8 V8 All Wheel Drive Automatic 70,000 miles
I own a 1998, Jaguar Vanden Plau. This has been my dream car up until 6 months ago. Two years ago I purchased a truck as an alternate vehicle. During the winter months I have the Vanden Plau in storage. As of January 2008, I've been experiencing excessive drainage to the Jaguar car battery. I replaced the battery three months ago. Now every other week, I have to get a jump because the battery is totally drained. I have taken the vehicle to be hooked up for a diagnostic test - nothing appears to be wrong. I've had the fuses checked - everything appears to be ok.
I'm now reluctant to drive the car too often or for excessive distances intimidated by the fact that the vehicle might not start or completely stall.
