      Note: Power Window Initialization Procedure

      1. On the XK8, the windows should come down just a bit when the door handle is used, then go back up when door is closed.

      2. If the windows go down and don’t come back up, they need to be reset. This will happen if battery power is lost.

      3. To reset, hold down button until window is down then an extra five seconds, you should here a click from the door module. Then raise window all the way up and continue to hold up button for an extra five seconds.

      Thanks for your response. Resetting only holds for 1 to 5 door openings then the window will not go back up as designed. When I pull on the door handle the window will go down about an inch each time until I reset the window. The battery checks out. Do you think I could have a relay or computer problem?

      Since this problem often is caused by a bad battery throwing out lower than 12 volts I suggest you confirm the condition of the battery. The engine starting up without a jump is not a confirmation. I do not think you have a computer issue. This is all about getting proprietary information.

      Battery bad maybe

      Thanks for your help. The Battery is showing 12.14 volts. Is this sufficient? Also, the message center will indicate when either door is open without a problem. Is there any thing else you can advise before i take it to my Tech?

      No, I'm out

      Good luck and update me with the fix when he figures it out.

      It was the battery. The Tech found that while the car started just fine that the battery was 9 years old and was a little weak. New battery and all is OK.
      Thanks for your help.

    I need to replace the hood support struts. part# 2S1927. Jaguar lists this as left and right.
    You have no such designation. To me the part looks the same for both sides since you can turn the shaft. Am I correct. Thanks, Bob

    Why don't my door unlock when I use my key
    the door on the passenger side do not unlock when I use the key but all other doors unlock

      You have no said if the key is able to turn in the lock. If the key is able to turn in the lock and the door does not unlock then you may have a broken linkage clip retainer. If the key does not turn at all then you need a new lock cylinder in that door. This will not be a DIY repair. I did one once on a '91 and I'll never try it again.

      There is a left headlamp relay and a right headlamp relay. Both relays are in the underhood power distribution box. Switch them with each other and see if the problem switches sides and if it does replace the relay.
      9/14/2013 rodriguezgeorge58
      Thanks for your response. I tried switching and disconnecting both relays and the problem stayed the same. any ideas greatly appreciated. thank you

      Probably have a faulty General Electronic Control Module which is what outputs to the headlights. KIt handles functions such as the vehicle lighting, the wiper and washers, the anti-theft systems the memory systems, the mirrors and trunk and fuel door. The decision to turn on each high beam travels through this module so it is possible for the specific circuit to become damaged. Probability here is greater than 75%. Called a GEM for short (general electronic module)

      Thank you for that info. I will follow up on your advise

      There may be another issue; faulty top switch, faulty wiring / connections - including the top motor itself. Check these websites for the convertible top parts;,,,,, - to list only a few. For example, they (Convertible Top Guys) can rebuild the hydraulic motor from around $149.00 for your vehicle.

    How can it open my bonnet if the latch is broke?
    My 2004 xj8 bonnet will not open. The latch has lost it's tension,however the cable is still connected to it
    • frankiedonnn

      When you say bonnet ,you mean the hood.Are you saying that when you pull the hood-latch from inside the vehicle that it doesn't work ? If the handle is broken off ,hold it with a vise-grip. I'm sure there's a way,but without knowing exactly what the problem is, it's difficult to say more.
