2003 Jaguar XK8 Windows, seat and mirror problems

  • 2003 JAGUAR XK8
  • V8
  • 2WD
  • 24,000 MILES
We just bought a used Jag with low milage, but it seem to have some electrical problems. The passenger window goes back up to closed as soon as we let go of the door handle. Mean it get stuck on the outside of the roof lip. We have tried the rest of the windows several times.
The head rests does not move up or down, but we can hear the motor for it running.
The passenger back-lean does not work.
The mirror adjustment does not work.

Please Help

The rear quarters are operated automatically up or down respectively when raising or lowering the convertible top. When the top is raised, with the door glass at the top of its travel, the glass will be powered down 12 mm and the rear quarters will be powered to the bottom of their travel. When the top is fully raised all glass will be powered up to close, forming a seal with the top.
If the front glass has been either fully or partially lowered manually, the rear quarters only will be powered up. If the power supply to the driver or passenger door module is disconnected (battery disconnected, module unplugged or fuse removed) then the glass/system must re-learn the glass operating characteristics. The last known glass position is regarded as top of travel by one touch operation until re-learning has taken place. One touch down, manual up and down control and the automatic lowering of the glass for door opening are unaffected.
To re-learn the glass operating characteristics, the associated door must be closed (door ajar switch inactive). The glass must then be driven fully down and held stalled at the bottom of its travel for a minimum of one second. The glass is finally driven to the fully up position and held stalled for a minimum of one second. The re-learning procedure must also be accomplished to regain the automatic glass closing sequence
