I have an intermittent problem with my 1998 XJ8. The car has 47000 miles on it and has developed a strange prob. When trying to start the car. It appears the battery is dead, but the lights and all accessories work. If I let the car sit for a couple hours it will start. If I try to restart it again it acts as though the battery is dead. Just a click when I turn the key. The battery is about 3 yrs old. I am wondering if a defective battery could be causing this . Or some problem with the security system.
