Hey all,

The battery completely died on my SVR the other day... I had to call AAA and go through the whole charade of trying to salvage the battery...Finally just got a new one (Thank goodness!!!). AAA guy was killing my ignition!!
Anyways, new battery works great except for one little glitch: the automatic up/down feature of the power windows. Windows go down automatically, but won’t go up automatically...any clue what this could be (besides just being a typical electrical gremlin)?

Thanks!

Child's play. Look in your owner's manual for the window reset instruction. Basically: lower the window; hold the switch down for 3 seconds. Raise the window. Hold the switch up for three seconds. Done. Every time you disconnect the battery the windows need to be reset. This is not a defect, just a perfectly normal procedure

Hey Gregory, thanks for the info, man! When I bought the car in January, it didn’t come with an owner’s manual. I haven’t been able to locate one (even through the local Jaguar/Land Rover Dealership), so there would have been no way that I would have known about this “hack”. I downloaded Jaguar iGUIDE recently and haven’t been able to find it in there either...

Anyways, long story short, I’ve been trying what you said all morning and it’s not fixing the issue...any other ideas what else it could be?

Thanks!

All JLR vehicles act in the same manner, and most other manufacturers as well. I simply just go down once and pull them up and hold. Problem always solved.
It seemed to work for the driver side (both up and down) but not for the passenger side (the button that is on the driver’s side). I tried it several times. I’m going to sit on the passenger side and try it from there. Maybe that will fix it...🤷🏻‍♂️

Sit in the seat that you expect the behavior... correct assumption. WE are often drivers, but you have to reset from each position!

Yeah I will try that! I tried resetting it again just now from the driver’s seat and it didn’t work so now it’s on to the passenger seat! 💪
