You have what is known as a "parasitic draw."

This thread may be able to help - Rob Evenson posted the method of isolating the problem.

my 92 had same problem. jag dealer could find nothing. BUT--did say my battery is to small (650amp). factory is (900amp). changed it out and fixed problem. Happened again and this time I was sitting in car, turned off and my automatic seat belts were still trying to engage and disengage. pulled fuses and problem fixed. have to take it to dealer to fix seat belts. (under lifetime warranty)

Hi fx3000,

Please let us know the year, model and engine of your Jaguar so we can offer the most accurate replies. It's easiest if you use your User Control Panel to add these details to your signature line so it appears in all your posts.

Cheers,

Don
