Question about 1998 Jaguar XK8
Both passenger & driver windows did not restore to their closed position when doors were opened then closed. Drivers window fixed itself but passenger window won't reurn to "Up" position, it keeps going down when door handle operated.
Any answers would be greatfully received...
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!

Bill man is right. with doors closed open window and continue to hold switch in position and count to ten, then close window and continue to hold switch in position and count to ten. Do both windows this way. I had the same problem when my battery went dead.

It is just a problem of having lost the position memory of the windows.
Does not need any repair but a resetting process of the Electronic Central Unit that controls the setting of windows motors.
That is why in any maintenance operation that will require to disconnect the battery you will have to leave the doors opened

Try operating window to bottom position and hold switch down for a few seconds.
This cured it on my one
