Your windows are a completely different component than your top so it might be a fuse.

The drivers seat problem is MOST likely A module located on the floor under the seat. You can check it by swapping with the right seat module. For the window problem--- With the engine running, run the window all the way down and hold it untill you hear a click (about 3-5 seconds) then run it all the way up and hold it untill you hear a click again. This sould reset the memory and it should work properly.

TOP IS STUCK AND WILL NOT MOVE UP OR DOWN . WAS WORKING GOOD WHILE INSTALLING TOP BUT JUST SHUT DOWN 97 xk8

The first place is to start with the fuses and make sure you didn't blow one, also make sure there are no obstructions in the way of the top operating open/closed. Hopefully its a fuse and not motor that operates the top as you would be looking at big $$$'s to repair..

has someone worked on the car in that area? either way it sounds like a loose connection in the rear of the radio, or worse in the radio, so as most car fires are caused by defective radios i would suggest the radio is removed and checked for the fault

Last year my car suddenly overheated while idling to the point the coolant tank exploded. I took it to a foreign car repair shop where they replaced the coolant tank and put in another thermostat. It didn't make it home before it overheated again. I took it to the Jag dealership where they felt that my hoses had expanded to much during the overheat so they replaced all of my hoses to a tune of $1000. Three months later it overheated again. I took it to another foreign car repair shop where they discovered the real culprit. An impeller had broken off of my waterpump, I had a blockage in my radiator, and I had a short in one of the coolant fans that made it only work part of the time. So about $2400 later my car has been coolant issue free for about 2 years now. Good luck and I hope this helps.
