Jaguar XK8 – Electric Window Issues

The electric windows are in need of some attention. The windows are falling slightly to enable the door to open and close without any glass shattering. This is exactly what should happen but the issue we are faced with is that the windows do not rise again when the doors are closed. They, in fact, continue to keep dropping.

It looks to be a relatively simple fix with the battery being at fault. The battery is not holding the voltage as it should. The low output means the windows are not operating as they should.

Having fitted a new battery and resetting the factory settings the windows are now operating as they should. This also means the hood is able to lift on and off with no issues. With the windows at fault the computer was not able to tell the hood mechanism to work.
