Why does the car not start sometimes. Then when you try again it starts. Also engine light was on yesterday then not today?

Asked by May 13, 2015 at 09:18 PM about the 2010 Jaguar XF Premium

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Lately my car makes a clicking noise and won't start. I replaced the battery. When you
wait a few minutes and try again it starts. The engine light recently came on and the next
day it was off.

It is most likely a faulty starter selinoid. or a loose connection at the battery or the selinoid.


Did you ever find out what was wrong? I'm having the same problem
