First get in the car turn on ignition sit in the seat next to the window that does not close .close door press window switch down until window is all the way down hold your finger on the switch all the time and hold it there for 10-15 sec after the window is down then do the same but with the window going up this will reprogram the window so it knows where it is.for this fault to happen the power to the window has become disconnected, replaced battery with door open is the useual one. good luck.

The battery may be getting poor. when the voltage drops lower than 9.00 volts the modules loose there memory and you have to keep resetting things, if the battery is ok the power supplies and grounds need checking, and if the charging system is ok. i think its your battery.

I would say you have a short or wire that came off the window motor and its making contact with the handle connecting the the circuit when you move handle causing to window to work. Remove the door panel and inspect the wiring that goes to window motor. At motor and all the way to where wires run out of door ( by door hinges) and see if you can visually see a bare wire touching around handle or a loose wire. Let me know what you see and find

If it does this every few days, then you may have a battery that is getting old and weak. The voltage drops when the starter tuns the engine over and the module forgets the window programming. Or the module is going bad or you have a bad electrical connection or ground.

I need correct part names for my Camaro 89 IrocZ28. I also need prices and places to get the parts needed.


It sounds like what you need are dealer parts, items only available from GM rather than an auto parts store. You should be able to pick the parts out of a diagram in their parts dept.

Window will not go back up after closeing doors,coyiues to go down each time you pull up on out side handle.


To reset the windows you need to get in the car make sure both doors are completely shut. Roll the driver window all the way down, keep your finger on the down switch for about 8 seconds then roll it up and keep your finger on the up switch for about 8 seconds do the same for the passenger. If you ever replace your battery this will have to be done. ( ps don't take your finger off the buttons when your rolling them up and down)

Driverside inside door won,t open the dr or even unlock the drs handle is pulled to release?


more likely the door handle mechanism is either broken or came undone, the only way to get to it and see what broken or came off is to remove the door cover panel, its not easy job and its time consuming if not mechanical incline although it something fairly simple to fix and repair. you may just have to replace inner door handle if it broken off from the linkage.

2004 JAGUAR XKR CONV. THE PASSENGER WINDOW GOES DOWN WHEN DOOR IS OPENED BUT ROLLS BACK UP WHEN THE DOOR HANDLE IS RELEASED. IS THERE A RESET OR IS THE LATCH FAILING


Voltage fluctuations with a weak battery etc can cause loss of window memory. Start car, lower windows and hold the switch down for several seconds then repeat in the raised position. This will reset window positon memory.
