    Hi @Scalp59 , Funny you mention that. Mine is doing exactly the same thing. The sequence is:
    1. Boot opens whilst windows lower.
    2. small windows go down and roof gets into the boot.
    3. etc.
    For some random reason, you can tell inmediately that it would not work because the small triangular windows don't go down... This has started only a week ago. I was blaming the switch at the roller shelf in the boot... because this only happens when I'm leaving home and I park on my driveway which is sloping up (nose up). I thought that the angle would be playing games with the shelf/switch/etc.
    It could also be the heat that we are experiencing in the UK at the moment (and for once I'm not joking :clap:) that it's affecting something...
    Up until now, I was hoping that it would go away on its own :think:.
    If I manage to get to investigate I'll keep you posted, but please do the same.

    Easiest way to reset the window ECUs (and presumably the roof) is to disconnect the battery for 5 mins or so.

    This started happening to me once the hot weather kicked in. It's always been as I leave work, after the car has sat in the sun all day. I followed the advice from another post. Knock one of the small windows with your knuckle just before the small window is due to descend. Works for me every time!
    I should start parking in the shade!

    Thank you @Tony . I knew that if I left it alone it would go away (eventually). Glad to hear is the heat. I'm surprised that our Aussie friends didn't jump on the opportunity :D. Of course, it must be "winter" for them... :D
    I'm relieved that it's something as simple as that. You made my day!
    Thanks again Tony.

    On a Discovery 4, and Jaguar XF thinking about it, the trick was disconnect both battery terminals, leave for 5 mins or so and then touch the disconnected cables together to completely eliminate any residual current (which shouldn’t exist).

    Just to be clear, just the cables not the battery terminals and both cables should be completely disconnected.

    Thanks for all replies. Just to confirm you it always occurs when the car parked in sunny places. Hard to find shade here...
    Will try the knocking procedure...
