Electric windows x type 2009

Clive whittles

Recommended Posts

Jaguar x type 2009. Seem to have a problem with electric windows. All windows apart from drivers window. All the others will only go up and down in small increments. This happens you press for one operation up and down or nudging window up and down. To get windows to rise you have to multi click the switches (8 times) to get them to rise. I have tried with child safety on and off. I also tried disconnecting battery to try some kind of reset. Non of the windows are jammed. The car has only done 26000 miles. It is strange they all go up and down in the same increment .?

Hi Clive, did you get this sorted as i have recently bought a 2009 X-type jag and both drivers side windows do this exact same thing. Has to be button pressed 8 times to get the windows on the drivers side to move up a few cms and will only move down a few inches each time but only needs a press each time to move down. But to get drivers side windows up, you have to press the button up 8 times at a time to get nthe window to close a few inches

Also, downpress (part or all the way) works every time for  3 inches of movement but on all 4 windows you have to press upswitch (part or all the way) exactly 8 times before it will move 3 inches and again 8 times for the next move. Fuse is fine but annoyingly the extractor flicked off the virtually inaccessible motor fuse and disappeared below the footwell lining - lost forever methinks! The resetting procedure doesn't work. Please help as I just bought my first Jaguar and would hate for it to be something stupid that makes it my last...

I've just bought a 2009 X-type and same thing with both driver's side windows.  They go down in increments and then the window button has to be tapped right times for it to go back up again - in small increments.


What's the solution?  Please help!!

Not quite the same problem but mine would go down all the way but going up was in stages. Tried the reset idea and it worked! My windows go all the way up & down as they should now. Just to let you know the fix works

Always check the battery. Just because some stuff is working does not mean it is OK. Central locking and windows can go wrong when the battery is not up to scratch—I'm just saying this because it is a cheap thing to do and will avoid that day when it won't start!

Have exactly the same prob with front passenger window on my X type.have been reading all the comments on this problem but no one seems to know why it happens.pressing the button 8 times makes it work but in small movements.what on earth is that all about.

The fact that so many cars have this problem should be  of interest to Jaguar,why the silence?
