If it makes a clicking sound when going up or if it is bent the aerial mast will need to be replaced, if there is no noise and it seams to work normally and just gets stuck then it needs cleaning. You can use wd40 and a cloth, with the aerial up, wipe upward (upward only, wiping down will push dirt into the mast and make it worse) spray the wd on the mast and the cloth and wipe upward, sent it down and repeat 2-3 times.

Power aerial stuck halfway


yor motor can be running fine, but the gear inside the unit is most likley plastic and may be broken. if your handy with broken things, you could tear it apart and see if the gear is broken, but I would go online and see if parts are availible. You can also get one from the junkyard or off ebay.

Err message on heater panel


have you checked fuses? Sounds like the fuse controls the dash and the trans shif interlock. check both underhood fuse panel, and the in-cabin fuse panel.

Fuel level indication problem


Try and reboot the system.
Disconnect both sides of the battery then crank the car 3-4 times (i know is sounds silly but this fully discharges all the ecu's)
Then reconnect the pos, then neg, reboot the windows and try that.
The xk8 have a lot of quirky problems like this.
