My XK8 top stopped operating as I pushed the close button

Customer Question

My XK8 top stopped operating as I pushed the close button and it went up but rear windows did not. Took to my local mechanic who tested motor, did not work so he put a new one in. Still didn't work but there is power to motor( it went up and down once but he doesn't know why). Hood open light is on so he wants to put in a new locking latch. What do you think?

Hello and thanks for using

So the top is fully closed and latched but it shows Hood open/not closed and both quarter windows are stuck closed?
