2004 Saab 9-3 Window reset

My window rolls down and up just fine. When it reaches the top it will automatically roll down 4 inches. It looks to be a safety feature in case you roll up your finger or something. I have cleaned all sides and there is nothing jammed in the track.

I have heard that there is a reset code for auto. windows

Any Ideas?

    I have had had the same problem with my front driver-side window on and off for about 2 months. Now when I turn the key off and remove it from the ignition all 4 windows go down and the sunroof opens fully. Not sure if they are related but it seems that there might be a short somewhere in the electrical circuit.

    My driver side window rolls down fine, however, when rolled up when it reaches the top it will automatically roll down 4 inches. This happened once before about two months ago but hasn't occurred again until today. It non appears to be a hard fault.

I had the problem of the drivers window rolling back down. This was fixed by removing the electrical connector located behind the door hinge. It looks like an oblong block. You have to prise the top ribbed part right up then pull the block out. Leave out for about 1 minute. Replace it

I had this problem too. In fact, all but the back seat (behind the driver seat) windows did the same thing. When putting the windows up, they would get to the top then roll back down about 4 inches.

It was frustrating and distracting when driving.
However, I had to replace my battery today and after taking the old battery out, having it testing, and replacing it with a new one (about 20 minutes without a battery in the car) the auto roll up feature is now not working. Good news is that when the windows go all the way up, they stay up. I like that. Now, I am searching for a feature to turn the auto up and down back on. Any ideas would be helpful!

There is a sensor that measures pressure or colsing force, it must be defective, replace it, it may be part of the motor, not sure on your model, but i am sure of the fact there is a sensor.

I had this issue with mine, Just take it to your local dealer, i did and they did it for free. You have to drop your window 4 times or something. In any case it takes them about 2 minutes

My 2004 SAAB 9-3 one touch windows don't work properly.


I'm not positive on Saab, but I know this works for Audi and it's worth a try: Roll the window down. Then close it as you did, holding the button. Once the window is closed, release the button and then quickly tap it in the same direction. That may be all you have to do. It works for Audi and BMW so it's at least worth a try.

Battery Disconnect Window Reset Procedure: Roll window all the way down ( in first position), then roll window all the way up. When you reach the top, press and hold the switch down for 3-5 seconds. Roll window all the way down (again), press and hold the switch down for 3-5 seconds. The window should roll up and down normally. Repeat the same steps for ALL the window switches.

04 Beetle Driver's side window sensor issue (maybe?)


Not likely. You have a defective window regulator. To fix remove the door panel. Peel down the warer barier. Remove the window motor and check it. If the plastic plugs are defective replace. To remove the window regulator you will need a 1/4 inch punch to punch out the rivits and 1/4 inch drill to drill out the aluminum holding in the regulator. Replace these with 1/4 inch bolts and lock nuts.

Hi, My 2002 Chevy Cavaliers windows have started having trouble rolling up. It seems they roll down fine, it's just when you try to roll them up either the 'button' doesn't work at all or it works...


Try spraying silicone spray down the sides (felt) where window slides (guides) up & down. Put window all the way down, spray them well, top to bottom,then run window up & down a few times. May not cure it, but should help. Be generous with it, but a little clean up later may be needed.

Window goes up then down half way on drivers side


I know this answer is going to sound strange but I had exactly the same problem on a 2007 93 convertible. When you closed the window it would reach the top and then go back down half way. You could edge the window up slowly but as soon as it reached the top it opened again. This was solved by taking to a dealer and upgrading the software for the windows under the manufacturers warranty. There is a firmware update that adjusts the sensitivity for the sensors and solved the problem instantly and i've had no problems for over two months.
Hope this helps.
