Auto window being goofy

When I do that auto-up on my passenger window, sometimes it will stop right at the very top and come back down and stop about halfway. If I do it again it will go up for good. It doesn't do it every time, but it's getting more and more frequent (but that could be because with the warm weather I'm rolling my windows down more).

same thing happens with my passenger window, but very infrequently. My driver side won't even go up with the auto-up, I have to hold it all the way up.

At one point I had reset my driver-seating 1 and 2 settings and both problems went away for a while, but eventually came back.

If I can't get it figured out we'll just blame it on the N-23 recall

Try putting it all the way to the top and then holding the button there for ~10 seconds or so, maybe more. I had the same problem and I discovered you can reset the windows by doing this. It might take a few tries.

Thanks I'll give it a try.

I have the exact same issue! Thought it was my imaginary friend playing with the buttons... Let me know if you figure this one out please : )

It does that when the window motor detects resistance, so as not to burn up the window motor or break something. I've had it happen to me every now and again after I installed my in channel vent visors. When that happens I just put the window up without using the auto feature and it works fine.

Lol I realize there are solutions like manually making the window go up. But the whole point of auto windows is...well...auto windows. I'd rather them function properly rather than having to settle for alternatives.

My point wasn't to bypass it, it was that there is probably something putting excess strain on the motor and you should probably check it out.

I can understand the vent thing though. But mine will stop before it gets to the top. It's weird I don't get it. I tried the window reset thing mentioned earlier and it hasn't helped. Oh well.
