You'll need to reset the electronics.
It will be something like this -
Close the window and keep your finger on the button for a couple of seconds, then push the button and hold again for a couple of seconds.
Do the same with all the windows.
The one touch close should work after you do that

.
It's easy to do. All windows up to start. Press the switch up for 2 secs, then release, up again for 2 secs and release. send the window down and hold the switch down for 2 secs when it reaches the bottom. Press the switch down and hold it for another 2 secs and release again. Send windows up and hold switch. All done after that. All windows will require this process.

Often you need to take out the door panel and check that the tab that is pushing up the window is catching the window itself.

    Start removing the door panel as suggested, and see if it can be a mechanical problem.
    If the problem does not depends on mechanic test the motor. if the motor is ok and providing enough strenght to pull up the window, then the problem is with the electric window control module.
    The electric window control module is a small box, located either under one of the front seats or behind the dash, you find the control module following the wirings from the fuse box to the control switch.

Window will not go back up after closeing doors,coyiues to go down each time you pull up on out side handle.


To reset the windows you need to get in the car make sure both doors are completely shut. Roll the driver window all the way down, keep your finger on the down switch for about 8 seconds then roll it up and keep your finger on the up switch for about 8 seconds do the same for the passenger. If you ever replace your battery this will have to be done. ( ps don't take your finger off the buttons when your rolling them up and down)

Back window wont go up


yuo should be able to get them up if you check the fuses and the motors or it could be the way you did it manually the tops are really touchy and can sometimes create other problems if all fails take to a certified mechanic.

Jaguar XK8 Window Problem


Same thing has happened on mine!
The solution is to reprogram the window limits. You need to sit in the car with doors shut! Turn the key in ignition in position I or II, roll down the window all the way and keep holding the switch for 5 seconds, then roll the window up and again keep the switch pressed for 5 seconds, repeat same steps for other door.
Reprogramming is also described in the owners manual. I don't know how mine became deprogrammed, should only happen if the battery is disconnected!

2002 Jahuar xk8 -convertible- Driver's window does not retract back to close position after door closes


If you disconnect the battery you must reprogram both windows by holding the button down until you hear it chime takes about 5 or so seconds. Repeat for the other window and this should solve the problem. This information should be in your owners manual, it is in mine
