Hello Forum,
I just bought a 2017 XE and do not use it every day. My question is, can I connect a battery maintainer (trickle charge) onto the post under the hood (bonnet) or must it be connected directly to the battery in the trunk (boot)?
Thanks

Ok, positive of the charger direct to the positive of the battery, negative of the charger to the nearest ground point to the battery. It is the Jaguar recommended way to connect the maintainer.
