Hi. I'm a new member posting from chilly New England.
Despite the fact that there is a snowstorm bearing down on us, soon I will be uncovering my wife's "new" 2006 X-type (3 liter V6). It's stored in the barn for the winter, and has not run since November.
My question is about that first cold engine start-up after a period of storage. With my old TR6 it's easy - just ground the coil and crank it until the oil pressure comes up, then it's safe to start it.
How shall I crank the Jaguar without firing it until the oil is pumped up? Is there a fuse I can pull to disable the fuel injection, perhaps?
Any help appreciated.

Fuses #17 and #19, both 15A and in the engine compartment fusebox, supply the Injectors and the Ignition Coils. Remove them and the engine is disabled. You can then crank as necessary without starting.

Hi again, Steve.
Just an FYI, pulling those 2 fuses did not allow me to crank the engine. All the dash lights came on, but no crank.
I put the fuses back in, turned the key, and she started right up and ran great. I had a check engine light on for a day, but it went out on it's own.
