Jaguar X Type Battery Removal

Reasons for Battery Removal

Always disconnect the battery before commencing repair operations which require any of the following:-

  • The vehicle to be jacked up.
  • Work on the engine.
  • Work underneath the vehicle.
  • Mig or Arc welding.
  • Removal or repair of Electrical parts (lights, indicators etc)

warning sign Never disconnect the battery with the engine running.

Before disconnecting the battery make sure that the audio equipment key codes are known.

Before disconnecting the battery read all data required from the powertrain control module as battery disconnection will erase any fault codes and idle/drive values held.

Alternatively a Radio Code Saver such as the GUNSON 77052 INTELLIGENT MEMORY MINDER may be used. With the battery disconnected, a Radio Code Saver will allow sufficient current to pass to maintain the radio receiver/cassette player/mini disc player and compact disc player memory, operate the clock and supply the door operated interior lights while isolating the battery in the event of a short circuit.

warning sign RADIO CODE SAVING DEVICES MUST NOT BE USED WHEN CONDUCTING WORK ON AIR BAG OR FUEL SYSTEMS.

Disconnect negative lead first, secure it out of the way, then disconnect the positive lead. Ensure that the positive lead is insulated from any metal parts of the car i.e. wrapped in a suitable cloth or tape, and secure out of the way.
