Question about 2006 Toyota Highlander
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.
