How do you reset the power windows on a 1999 Jaguar XK8 so they do not go down a half inch everytime you open and close the doors?
Hold the window buttons on the door and fully open the windows, Hold the button for approx 15 secs until you here a bleep. Repeat holding the buttons to close the windows fully and hold for a further 15 secs until the bleep is heard. This should reset the windows
Wrong. There is no beep. Close the doors driver and pass. Engage the windows fully up. Turn ignition to on without starting the engine. Allow 10 secs for computer to reset the windows. Turn ignition off and remove key. Return key and try windows. Same thing happened to me after windows where iced up.
Did not get a chance to register yet - so it's anonymous. Anyway:
Neither of previous answers agrees with the manual for my '00 XK8 (unless '99 differs). The manual states:
Ignition on. Drop window fully down, hold extra 5 sec. Raise window fully up, hold button extra 5 sec. Repeat for other window.
Now, if you are losing your programming (windows, memory seats, etc.), forums agree that this is an early sign of failing battery. Drops voltage when starting engine and thus loses settings.
Good luck, Robert.
"If everything else fails, read the manual."
Some people like me have lost their manual (following a theft)! Manuals are now out of print for my model.
The above (hold-down for 5 seconds) works for my 2000 XKR. In fact you only need to hold the window operation button down for about 2-3 seconds until you hear a slight muffled click, at which point you can release the button. Im sure XKRs and XK8s will be the same.
When your battery dies completely you need to know this. In such a circumstance it is also useful to know that you can get inside the boot (trunk) manually via a keyhole in between the K and R letters on the XKR logo on the back panel of your car. I presume it also works between the K letter and 8 digit on the XK8. Even the Automobile Association car rescue man did not know that and had to inject some power by power-boosting under the bonnet to get access to the boot and thereby the battery. An XKR owning friend later told me how I could have avoided that call-out!
Jaguar experts seem to have answered this question fully, but when i first read it, i thought it was similar to the Audi TT. These are relatively small inside, and the air pressure could cause the doors to bounce back when closing. The cure is to drop the window a little as the door is unlocked, then raise it again after closing.
Everytime I bring mine in its a big bill. Not worth it anymore am going to sell! Everytime I bring mine in its a big bill. Not worth it anymore am going to sell! There are several recalls on the 2003 trailblazer - 1. The windshield wipers will auto turn on and you will not be able to stop them, they will eventually short out. 2. The doors will not open from the outside…
Doors and windows may fit too tightly. Sometimes they have had layers of paint added that make them just a little bit larger than they were supposed to be. Sometimes the window frames or door frames become warped out of shape, due to moisture absorbed into the wood, and then things no longer fit. And sometimes, it just means that the windows or doors just weren't installed properly. Materials, such as wood, metal, and plastics…
The Romans in the Italian peninsula had windows that had no glass in them, in times of inclement weather they closed the windows with heavy wooden shutters. The Mediterranean climate allowed a very open architectural style. Doors were similar to modern doors. Usually used on exterior entrances, doors were meant to keep out uninvited guests.-Prof. Oddman
The dream suggests that you do not feel in control of the events in your life. Doors and windows are both means of access and barriers. When you are in control, you open the doors and windows to allow some people, ideas or things into your life, and shut the doors and windows against people, ideas and things that you reject. The dream might be showing you that you need to take more control of…
Perhaps it is because the door seals are very good. the result of this can be that the build up of air pressure inside the car slows the closing door down at the last moment, causing it not to catch properly. The way to see if this is the problem just leave one of the doors open or partially open one of the windows as you close the door. If it becomes easier to close…
