Default Window Failure 97 XK8

R/H drive model, One only passenger window fails to go up or down, door latches do not auto lock, mirror not operational, door open warning light when closed

driver window ops ok when using button, will not partly drop and close on opening of door.
Battery is new and disconnect reset does not assist

Read Micro switch may be the offender, any other ideas? any relays that could affect all of the above?
Thanks Guys

Maybe you should separate symptoms by side (pass / driver).

Do locks operate with remote? Do locks operate with key in door?

Door closed - is that door's puddle light on? (On 1997, failed micro switch = door thinks it is open. Display says so as per your confirmation)

I probably should have started with: Battery. Crazy things like this occur with run down batteries.(just noticed- you have a brand new battery)

Btw, a failed micro switch will only affect one door. Super unlikely that both sides fail at once.

Did you reset window travel (new battery always requires this) yet? It could be that simple, hope so.

Let us know how it goes.

Thanks for reply John, all problems are passenger side only,
Locks do not operate remotely either side
Only driver side operates with key manually and when it locks, opens and locks after 3 movements, stays in locked position drivers side only
Passengers door light does not light up with door opened or closed
Disconnected battery totally and earthed positive. Reconnected and no change
Passenger mirror inop
passenger window inop
passenger door lock inop
dash error passenger door open when ignition on

Hi.

At the door jamb, between the hinges, you have a circular electrical connector. All power to the door go through this. The connector is opened by unscrewing. Spray with electrical cleaner (not WD40) and reconnect.

Thanks Oyster, 18 pin plug and all looked in excellent condition, sprayed with contact cleaner just in case and no prize.
Checked power at fuse 25ah, 12.5v showing, so I will have to try and find power at the 18 pin plug.
Will try and find a wiring diagram to ease the pain, tomorrows job.... many thanks, john as well, as I did not see that plug at all
