Went to start Rene’s car on Saturday and it was dead as a door nail. Nothing. This lead to me learning that:
- the “remote post” jumper cable connections are a bit pointless.
- the location of the battery is not that different on the XK than it is on it’s grandfather, the XJS
- the battery is a little fiddly to remove
- the battery weighs 1 sh!t ton + about 17 lbs
- autozone stocks the correct battery.
Back together and no further drama and I am a tiny bit smarter.
