I replaced the drivers side window glass. Now when I hit the "auto close" the window closes then rolls back down about a quarter of the way. I think this is a safety feature that needs to be reset.How do you reset?

Re: 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.

the gear teeth on the window mechanism ratchet is either worn or stripped need to remove the door panel then either remove the glass or secure it in the closed position to remove the mechanism for repair
Driver side door when you open it beetween the door and the car there wire in the middle all the wire for the window and door look goes truh there check you probably got broken wire in there you open and close that door 1000s time everytime you open and close those wire move and break just open that and repair the broken wire
not really. it is best done with two people. remove the inside paneling, roll the window down and open the tailgate. then use a phillips screwdriver and push down the side tabs so the tailgate thinks it closed and roll the window up, have the second person hold the glass. You now have access to change the key cylinder.
If you can hear the motor running while pressing the window switch you may have a broken clip or something in the way causing the window to slip off track. If no sound comes while pressing the window button you may need a power window regulator motor "OR" the window button itself may need replacing. If the window was down when it stopped working and had to be manually rolled back up, this can cause the glass to randomly fall back inside the door. This is because the car thinks that the window is still down and will continue to fall until it tells the computer that the window was closed using the power window button. If the window falls at just the wrong angle you could end up having to replace the glass as well.
is this rolled up or down? Normally the guide tracks have a liner that holds the glass very securely. If the window rattles when it is rolled down then I would be suspicious that a healthy sized chunk of the liner has broken off of both sides. OR something else is loose in the door perhaps bumping the glass or the liner or perhaps a supporting screw for the track has come loose. The only way to know for sure is to pull the door panel off and give it a good inspection. Wriggle it as best you can. Nothing should really be loose in there when it comes to window regulators etc.
It is likely the window motor is wearing out and will need to be replaced. You can always try a different switch on those wires to rule out switch problem. Otherwise, the motor will have to be replaced.
