Question about 1997 Jaguar XK8
Jerry, this is an older request, but I will try to help trouble shoot it for you. First, check the fuses for the top. Your manual should show you where it is, or which one it is, but the fuse box is in the passenger cabin. If that is okay, then you'll have to remove the switch and unplug it. With a small wire "jumper" jump the terminal at the wiring harness. One is hot, the other, usually the black wire, is ground. Does the top motor activate? If yes, it is the switch (most common) if not, it could be the motor. Unless you are a very good DIY'er, this is as far as you might go without experienced help. Wires could be pinched, the motor could be bad, or the pump might be dead. Lots of things from that point on, (mice chewing wires- frequent for a car stored over a winter). The switch is the most replaced, tough. Pray for the easy fix! Let us know what you do to resolve this (or what you did to resolve it back in March 2014)
