Question about Cars & Trucks
can fail for 3reasons
power does not reach the motor.
motor is bad
the guides are seized.
some times, the motor seems good but is weak, bad internal
commutator. (2/3s power)?
use a voltmeter see if 12v reaches motor on demand (push switch)
if that is ok, we have it down to 2 problems in 5min flat.
you could then disconnect the motor, and see if the windown
can be operated by hand, if not , its jammed
if you can , then the motor is bad or weak.
you are now IMPOWERED.

I too had this problem. The first several times i tried the reset process (page 23 of the owners manual) it made no difference.
It appeared to me that the computer did not properly know where the door was actually located. like you , my door would not close. in fact, base on the sound, it sounded like it was trying to open when it was already open. I knew i had to figure out a way to "trick" the computer into relearning where the door was.. as crazy as it sounds
With the battery on, I opened the door with the button, before it could open fully, i closed it again with the button. I did this several times. I also experiment with shutting off the power (using the on/off button) in mid operation. Eventually it would close but pop back open again. At this point, I then did the reset procedure and it worked!
I am not a mechanic but a pretty decent electronic/computer guy. All i know is it worked!

it probably corroded the motor and or contacts. You can either take the motor out and try to clean it using elctromode, or replace it
Check ebay, they usually have a good aftermarket laying around for much cheaper than a dealer ship

SOURCE: 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!

get it to the dealer asap.
you definitely need to take apart the door. There's something not right inside.

The drivers door window switch probably needs replacing.The control units are built into the window motors.Best of luck.
