The panel will not fully remove, but will come off a little bit. This one If you cut it after, then you can just remove the old one and install a new motor as it has the harness. Please check out official web site for our disclaimer as we are not professional mechanics but experienced automotive enthusiasts sharing our experiences and providing entertainment content. If someone could tell me how to reset it without having to take it to the dealership that would be great! Raise glass to the top position. You'll hear a series of clicks again.
Using the flat head, push down the tabs and pull the male end out of the wire harness with your other hand. You are going to then push the switch down again and hold it for approx. I found 6 published versions during my search including posts on this site, the Guides section and other places. It is probably important though, it sounds as if it's saying don't use the switch to raise and lower the windows, but surely you dont do it by hand!? It is fully up at the moment and when I closed the door without realising this the glass hit off the car. Next put the window up with the window button and continue to hold the button in the up position while you count to ten again. This is where i pry the flat head screw driver to remove that plastic piece.
This should retrain the window to know its open and closed limits. The Window Glass should partially move down. Passenger side window when hit on automatic to roll up, goes up, then comes back down about 25%. Open the boot with a knife being careful not to damage the wires inside. This can help you determine if the motors still work. Someone posted a way to reset the window but I can't seem to find it now.
Then, lift up and hold the window switch until the window is fully closed. With door open, lift up and hold the window switch until the window is fully closed. I keep bringing it back to the dealer, they've replaced the motor and reset it over and over. There will also be two white tabs on the back side of the panel that secure the female end of the window motor wire harness to the panel. Now try the Auto up and down functions and they should work. Posted on Jul 27, 2009 does it click or grind when pushing window button if so the window lift track may need replaced, if there are no sounds then disconnect the wires from the lift motor and with the ignition on so power is sent to switch, push button and check wires to 12 volts dc.
Open the window completely by operating the power window switch. So in essence the reset method worked a little bit by eliminating a few quirks but not all for me. It's back at the dealer again today! I can leave my car locked tonight phew No damage to the inside well none that will be lasting. I got a replacement for my drivers side and followed the instructions and it worked nicely! Probably at a shop or dealer. But whatever, I enjoy driving it. We do hope this little guide provides information which is helpful to you in an entertaining fashion.
When i got everything together and tried the window, it only went up half way, i had to shut the door and close it to get it to go all the way up, and it worked fine ever since. You could try the window reset procedure post no. It could also be the wires, so you can run a seperate wire to test the switch by running it directly to the window motor, and pressing the switch down. Raise the window to the fully closed position and keep the button pulled up for a further 15 seconds. If there is power then I would re-install wires to motor after turning off key and try button again with power on. Make sure your window is down when you do this and mark the cable harness and the motor so you can realign the motor and the cable crank, other wise your window will not realign properly and it will roll back down when the automatic button is hit.
Has anyone encountered this problem? I have heard this is a frequent issue. Holding the button to up will produce same result, have to bump the button multiple times to get window to close and stay up. It doesn't even try to budge. It acts like it needs to relearn but it also acted like it was out of the track when it was coming back up. Other options after that are cleaning the motor or replacing the motor. You'll have to do it every now and then, but it is better than having water come in.
There will be a shaft inside the shield that will have a cylindrical copper contact plate. If you still have problems, go through the process again. No point taking it to dealer for warranty as it occurs intermittantly. As you pull up to your destination you are still smiling inside. Hopefully we can hope you diagnose this problem and save a little mony in the meantime.
Does the passenger window motor have it's own reset button? Operate the window by the automatic function to confirm the initialization is complete. It's still worth a try. The reset button is a black round button found in a little hole on the door near the bottom half of where the motor is mounted Hope this works for you as well as it worked for me. It's back at the dealer again today! There's a small notch for the screwdriver blade to fit in. If no power I would replace the driver side switch after checking the wires for defects. Wipe off the excess do not get it on the interior trim like seats and door panels. You are going to then push the switch down again and hold it for approx.
The door panel needs to come off to inspect the tracks. Test this by opening and closing the window. Some of you may have had this happen, and it really sucks. What's happening is that your window is getting to the top and triggering the safety mechanism. It will probably drop due to being uncalibrated. Now, the window should stay up if you use the automatic roll-up.
