Also, check the luggage separator in the trunk.

You may need to do a manual reset on the top. The procedure is in the owners manual. Follow the instructions carefully. One person can do it but an extra set of hands is helpful.

I had a similar issue with my 07 XK... put it on the battery maintainer overnight, and the problem was resolved the next day :-)

Did the manual” reset”
top went up!
Still problem. Quarter windows never came up and when tried to put top back down it stoped just a few inches up.
I have wrenched on many machines however this top is more complicated than the Space Shuttle.

Did you read Post #4 by WhiteXKR (Steve, the top guru) in the link in my Post #5, above? He explains how to get the windows to work.

+1 On getting in touch with Steve for your problem and buying and installing his remote top controller. Have had one on two different XK verts since he came out with the controller. A great investment particularly with the rear windows add-on.

It sounds like your front windows may need to be reset. Lower both front windows and keep holding the buttons for 5 seconds after they reach the bottom. Then raise both front windows and keep holding the button for 5 seconds after they reach the top. Do this 2 or 3 times then try the top again.
