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.

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.

All windows but drivers won't go up or down 2001 GMC yukon


If they sound like they are trying to do something it's not the lock out switch . But to be sure pulling out the switch an testing for B+ voltage to and from the switch . Plus pull the other door switches to see if they have B+ voltage and good grounds would be the thing to do.. If you don't know how to check automotive electrical circuits your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop .
Passenger Power Window Operation
The passenger power window switches incorporate window up and down relays. The relay coil feed and supply sides are powered through the RAP fuse supply voltage circuit. The normally closed contacts of each relay is connected to ground. The load side of each of the relays are connected to either side of the power window motor through the power window up and down circuits. The up and down relay control circuits are connected to the normally closed contacts of the passenger window switch. These contacts are wired in series with the power window master switch, through the power window master switch up and down signal circuits and then to ground when the power window master is placed in the up or down position. This allows for the up and down operation of the passenger power window from the power window master switch. The center pole of the passenger power window switch is also connected to ground and will energize the relay when placed in the up or down position.

Driver Power Window Operation
The driver power window is unique from the passenger power windows in that it does not use window up and down relays. The driver power window is operated directly from the power window switch.
The normally closed contacts of the switch are connected to ground and the center pole is connected to the RAP fuse supply voltage circuit. By placing the left power window switch in the down position, voltage is applied to the power window motor left front down circuit and to the power window motor. The other side of the power window motor is connected to ground through the normally closed contacts of the left power window switch through the power window motor left front up circuit and drives the window down.
By placing the left power window switch in the up position the polarity of the motor is reversed and the motor drives the window up.

Has circuit breaker for B+ power
• PWR WDO CB 25A (fuse block) (System power for left and right windows 2-door vehicles. System power for LF and LR windows 4-door vehicles)
• PWR WDO CB 25A (IP wiring harness junction block) (System power for RF and RR windows 4-door vehicles)

Could be passenger door switch .

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.


Turn the key on

Press the window switch, lower the window, continue to hold the window switch down for 15 seconds after the window is completely lowered Don't use the auto feature

Pull the window switch up, raise the window, hold the button up for 15 seconds after the window is fully up. don't use the auto feature

Try the auto down feature again, see if it now works.
