Question about 2004 Jaguar XK8

1 Answer

I have a 2004 XK and when I open the door, the window goes down a little (as it is supposed to) and then rises back up to the closed position. This causes the door to refuse to close. To close the door, I must roll down the window a fraction. \r\n I have tried the re-set option listed here - to no effect. This happened one day when I was getting out of the car - it just happened with no explanation. Has anybody got any solutions?

Hello
That usually happens when you have a loose regulator , which in effect would not set the window properly.

The regulator has to be in good condition for the setting to stay as it should be,

If you disconnect the battery you must reprogram both windows by holding the button down until you hear it chime takes about 5 or so seconds. Repeat for the other window and this should solve the problem. This information should be in your owners manual, it is in mine

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!

Voltage fluctuations with a weak battery etc can cause loss of window memory. Start car, lower windows and hold the switch down for several seconds then repeat in the raised position. This will reset window positon memory.

When you open the door, the window drops a little and doesn't come back up until door closes normally, but my problem is when i open the door the window drops a little like its supposed to but instead of...


You may need to store the end position of the windows in the control unit. I would try the following, with the door closed, and the window partway open: Close the windows with the rocker switch ONCE. Then press the front half of the rocker switch again, this will store the end position in the control unit. Good luck!

My 2004 jeep grand cherokee has issues with windows rolling down and the automatic door locks.. Neither will work on any door. The sunroof will roll back however.


Had a similar problem... the wiring harness that goes inside the drivers door had a broken wire, hence no power would go to the door locks or the power windows. Check the area where the harness flexes when the door opens and closes.

2003 bmw z4. driver window does not drop 1/4 when opening or closing door. microswitch not in latch on body but inside door. how do I replace switch. thnak you


As long as it's not a mechanical malfunction, your car's position memory just needs to be reprogrammed. So, put the key in the ignition & place it in position 1 (ACC). Hold down the affected window switch for an additional five seconds after the window goes all the way down to perform a memory reset. Let this window back up, let go, pull the keys back out of the ignition, & open the door.

The driver's window lowers a little bit each time the door handle is pulled. The window is suppose to lower approx. 1" when you're opening the door to clear the convertible top but it won't raise back up...


Probably your battery is bad. either charge or replace that and then learn the windows again. (have you got your radio code before removing battery?) to learn the windows do them one at a time with door closed. hold the down button you hear a clck a few seconds after it opens fully now hold the up/close button and again wait for the click. easiest is to hold the button pressed for 10 secs after the windo has fully traveled down then send it up and again 10 secs after it stops moving.

Window sensor drivers side


as far as the window goes... here is the full reset procedure. I beleve in your case you only need to do part #2

GLASS RESET PROCEDURE: If window is hindered whilst closing, it will open again immediately. Attention: does not work when using car key to open/close window. After window has opened, lift and hold appropriate switch within 10 seconds. If window is still hindered it will stop closing. After window has stopped, lift switch again within 5 seconds in order to close window. It will now close without roll-back function.

2. To reinstall this function: Lock vehicle from outside via driver’s door. When doing this, please ensure that all windows are completely closed. Unlock vehicle and then lock it again via driver’s door. Hold key in locking position for at least 1 second.

hope this help.
p.s. find a new dealership!!!
