Driver's Side Window Won't Stay Closed

I have a 2001 Highlander. I just got the driver's side window replaced. Now when I try to close the window on auto, it goes up all the way but then immediately comes back down half way. The only way to close it is to hold the close swith manually until it goes all the way up. The dealder told me to hold the auto button up for ten seconds then down for ten seconds to "reprogram it". But it didn't now work for me. Please advise. Thanks.

What you have going on is the "anti-choke" feature of the window motor. What this means is that if you have your head out of the window, and you raise it, when it contacts your body, the motor sees resistance, and then flips it back down, to not choke you. This is a built in "safety feature"...
More often than not, the rubber window rubbers will cause this same thing if they are distorted or dirty. The dirt or distortion slows the window, and trips the anti-choke thingy. Look real close at the window runs, replace them if they are puckered, torn or otherwise distorted. If they look good, spray the run rubbers real good with some silicone spray, and cycle the window up & down.
Either case will eliminate your situation.

Front driver side window problem in ford edge


try this, it may or may not work. Using the window button, put the window down and continue to hold the down switch while you count to 10. Release the button. 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. Then put the window down and hold the button and count to ten again. The window operates on current draw to know when it is closed. This should retrain the window to know its open and closed limits.
But once again this may not work but it is worth a try. Hope this helps.

NO COST PROCEDURE TO FIX IT:

1. Sit in vehicle
2. Ignition key is on
3. Door in question is opennd (in case you closed door)
4. While door is open, press and hold power window button in desired window travel, keep button held
5. Pull to SLAM hard door closed with one hand while other hand holds button as per #4.
6. Watch window operate as it should.

7. Repeat steps 3-6 if necessary, usually the first try works!

This may be a temporary fix, works for few weeks, months, repeat again at that time.

Replace the regulator/motor combo in your door. Not a fun project but do-able for the able do-it-yourself'er. You can buy a Dorman branded aftermarket unit from Carquest or Napa. Stay away from the CSK/O'reilly's and Autozone stuff - they are ****. Also stay away from mail-order or online items from SPAL. They are also terrible quality as well.

Hope that helps. Nothing else will solve this problem without first replacing that unit and lubricating the tracks while you have it apart with a good sil-glyde or white lithium grease.

VW Polo 2001 - Electric Windows wont open from Drivers side..


I removed all 3 switches from driver and passenger door, which is really easy with a flat head screw driver. took them completely apart, very carefully, with a small screwdriver out of a christmas cracker. put them back together again and 2 switches started working, so I put 1 in the drivers side and 1 in the passengers side so now my drivers door window opens and I lean over to open the passenger door. cool, no money spent...yet ;o)

Driver side window bumps down when closed.


The anti-pinch has to be 'reset', unfortunatly the motor has to be remover and reset. If you replaced the glass yourself... then go back and remove the glass from the regulator, unbolt & remove the regulator from the door (10mm bolts). remove the motor from the regulator. plug power into motor and rotate the drive gear 'UP' 6-10 turns. motor should be reset. reinstall motor, regulator and window. check operation before installing door panel.
