Window may not be initialized. Follow this proceedure

Window Motor Initialization My driver side window does not auto roll up - adobe.gif Printable View (96 KB) NOTICE: Make sure no obstructions are present in the window system when carrying out this procedure.
NOTE: A battery disconnect does not require this procedure to be carried out unless the battery was disconnected while the window was operating.
NOTE: Excessive bounce-back (bounce-back that occurs with no obstructions present) may indicate a non-initialized window motor.
NOTE: Carry-out the de-initialization of the motor before initializing the motor.
NOTE: The motor will only operate in the 9-16 volt range. If the voltage drops below 9 volts, the window will not function correctly or may stop moving. If the voltage drops below 9 volts while the motor is operating, the motor will become de-initialized and will need to be initialized.
NOTE: The front window motors must be initialized whenever: a new window regulator and motor is installed, a new window glass is installed, a glass top run removal and installation or when carrying out any operation in which grease or lubricants are applied to the window system. A new front window motor is in a proportional up/down mode until initialized.
NOTE: The convertible rear window motors do NOT need to be initialized as they do not have one-touch up or one-touch down functions.
NOTE: All front window components (window glass, window regulator, window motor and glass top run) must be installed/tightened and adjusted to specification before carrying out this procedure.
NOTE: If this procedure is only partially completed, the front window motor remains non-initialized and only the proportional up/down functions operate. A non-initialized window motor may allow one-touch down operation, but does NOT allow one-touch up operation.

  1. The motor can be de-initialized in 2 ways:
    • Disconnect the battery cable from the battery while the window is operating.
    • Remove the window motor fuse while the window is operating.
  1. After the motor has been de-initialized, the initialization procedure must be carried out.
NOTICE: Make sure there are no obstructions present in the window system when carrying out this procedure.
NOTE: The door MUST be closed during this procedure (for convertibles, the top and quarter glass must be in the closed and up position), in order for the door window motor to initialize.
NOTE: The windows must be in the full open position for this procedure to operate correctly.
  1. Press and hold the window control switch in the UP position at the second detent until the window glass stalls into the glass top run for at least 2 seconds.
  1. Once the top run is reached, hold the window control switch in the DOWN position at the second detent until the window glass stalls at the bottom of its travel for at least 2 seconds.
  1. Cycle the window glass an additional 5 times to set the window soft stop for the down position.
  1. Test for correct window operation by carrying one-touch up feature.

SOURCE: i need to fix my driver side window

Sorry but you need a new window regulator assembly. There is no way to repair them as they are made cheaply and once they break or bend they don't ever work right again. Napa has a part number for them here: BK 6653604
Window Regulator - Left Front 1 0 u_clear.gif 180.86 BodyStyle:2 Dr. Coupe;
or for a 4 door: BK 6653606
Window Regulator - Left Front 1 0.00 u_clear.gif 180.86 BodyStyle:4 Dr. Sedan; the trade cost is 155.00 if you know someone with an account.
As an ex-gm tech I recommend a new gm part though I do not have the part number for that.
Have someone do this that is familiar with door panel removal or you will have a bunch of broken fasteners and the door panel will be loose fitting and rattle. Good luck . Scott

SOURCE: driver side door window doesnt roll up or

If it is just dead, and the fuse is OK ( other window(s) work correctly ), the switches on the 04-08 can have an issue where carbon builds up on the contacts, turning into an insulator.

A new driver's side switch ( assume you are talking about this one ) is ~ 45.00 at an online Ford dealer.

you can remove the switch, and take it apart to clean the contacts with a typewriter eraser, if you feel up to it. The switch is put together with tabs, so it is some what easy to dissemble.

I replaced my Driver's side switch at ~ 30K miles on my 2006, and cleaned the old one, for the next time.

SOURCE: Driver side window will not roll up or down.

you should open the door panel and check if the rolling motor is trying to roll at all, if it is then the teeth for rolling up is weak else then check the fuse for the motor

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.
