Sounds like a faulty switch or wiring. You may have a limit switch in the lifting/lowering mechanism, a faulty switch on your dash to control it, or a broken wire between the dash switch and the motor.

Have I ruined my 1997 Jaguar XK8 Driving 15mph or so I thought and tried to close the convertible top. Now the roof button will not work and the top is one inch from closing. Allen tool won't work.?

To close the top: Open both door windows. Open the trunk and pull the passenger side trunk liner towards the center of the trunk. You may have to work the liner away from the lip holding it in place. Once this is done, you will see the convertible top hydraulic pump. On the side of the pump is a petcock. Turn it completely counter-clockwise. This opens the valve on the pump. Now use the Allen tool to raise the hook. Pull the convertible top down to meet the hook. Close the top by using the Allen tool. Return to the trunk and close the petcock. Replace the trunk liner. Press the convertible switch to close the top - this will raise the rear windows. Close the door windows. Have the vehicle checked at a dealership.
