Question about Cars & Trucks

1 Answer

When opening or closing drivers door, the window opens 5" instead of usual 1/2" and does not auto close. Also after operating window switch, onetouch or holding, the window lowers or raises and then stops after approx 5" travel and the same travel again after each depress of the switch. Have tried following hand book instructions, holding switch with window in fully down and up positions and have heard click after 2secs. Have held for varying lengths of time after click and in all variations, door open/closed, engine running and idle but still no joy in resetting. Battery in v good state and passenger door window operating ok. Does anyone have any other advise to reset or diagnosing the problem. Very frustrating having to enter passenger side and reach across to close the window when parking.

What car

electric windows.
can fail for 3reasons
power does not reach the motor.
motor is bad
the guides are seized.

some times, the motor seems good but is weak, bad internal
commutator. (2/3s power)?

use a voltmeter see if 12v reaches motor on demand (push switch)
if that is ok, we have it down to 2 problems in 5min flat.
you could then disconnect the motor, and see if the windown
can be operated by hand, if not , its jammed
if you can , then the motor is bad or weak.

you are now IMPOWERED.

SOURCE: 2000 Toyota Sienna passenger side door won't close

I too had this problem. The first several times i tried the reset process (page 23 of the owners manual) it made no difference.

It appeared to me that the computer did not properly know where the door was actually located. like you , my door would not close. in fact, base on the sound, it sounded like it was trying to open when it was already open. I knew i had to figure out a way to "trick" the computer into relearning where the door was.. as crazy as it sounds

With the battery on, I opened the door with the button, before it could open fully, i closed it again with the button. I did this several times. I also experiment with shutting off the power (using the on/off button) in mid operation. Eventually it would close but pop back open again. At this point, I then did the reset procedure and it worked!

I am not a mechanic but a pretty decent electronic/computer guy. All i know is it worked!

SOURCE: Right front electric window keeps opening by itself

it probably corroded the motor and or contacts. You can either take the motor out and try to clean it using elctromode, or replace it

Check ebay, they usually have a good aftermarket laying around for much cheaper than a dealer ship

SOURCE: Jaguar XK8 Window Problem

Same thing has happened on mine!
The solution is to reprogram the window limits. You need to sit in the car with doors shut! Turn the key in ignition in position I or II, roll down the window all the way and keep holding the switch for 5 seconds, then roll the window up and again keep the switch pressed for 5 seconds, repeat same steps for other door.
Reprogramming is also described in the owners manual. I don't know how mine became deprogrammed, should only happen if the battery is disconnected!

2008 pontiac g6 drivers window, when handle is lifted the window does not drop the inch or so that it should.


The window indexing feature is used to lower the driver and passenger power windows approximately 4 mm when the door is opened. This is necessary to allow the top edge of the window to clear the window weather-strip. This feature will also raise the window to the fully seated position once the door is closed.
Is just the driver door not working ?
Observe the operation of the driver window and front passenger window while opening and closing their respective doors. The windows should index DOWN and UP when the doors are opened and closed.
? If either window does not index UP or DOWN, refer to Window Index Feature Malfunction.

Window Index Feature Malfunction
Ignition ON, observe the scan tool Driver Door Ajar Sw and Door Ajar Switch parameters while opening and closing the driver and passenger doors, the parameter should change from Door Closed to Door Ajar.
? If the parameter does not change when opening and closing the doors, refer to Door Ajar Indicator Malfunction .
Ignition OFF, disconnect the harness connector at the appropriate window motor.
Ignition ON, with the door closed, test for greater than 10 volts between the signal circuit terminal 5 and ground.
? If less than the specified range, test the signal circuit for a short to ground or an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal, replace the BCM.
With the door open, test for less than 1 volt between the signal circuit terminal 5 and ground.
? If greater than the specified range, test the signal circuit for a short to voltage. If the circuit tests normal, replace the BCM.
If all circuits test normal, replace the window motor.

Your best bet mite be to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop (GM dealer )

This may be as simple as relearning the window stop positions. Perform the following procedure to relearn the windows;

1) Sit in the drivers seat and ensure both doors are fully closed.
2) Turn the key to the ON position but do not start the vehicle.
3) Pull up on the drivers window switch until the window reaches the full up position, then CONTINUE HOLDING THE SWITCH UP for 2-5 seconds, then release the switch.
4) Push down on the drivers window switch until the window fully opens, then CONTINUE HOLDING THE SWITCH DOWN for 2-5 seconds, then release the switch.
5) Repeat steps 1-4 for the passenger window.
6) Close both windows and check the operation of the smart glass.

My Drivers door window will not auto drop when i open the drivers door, but will operate normally by the window up and down switch?


If the driver's side window is supposed to drop auto-
matically,when you open the door.I'd suspect the
tiny switch on the lower section of the door,which
should also operate your interior lights,is either loose,
or not working properly. Open the door,and find the
little push button switch,and operate it manually with
your finger. If the window operates properly,the switch
isn't making full contact with the door jamb.If it does
not work at all,it might just be bad,and need replacing. Good luck.

2006 Pontiac G6 GTP window auto close/open


OMG. I replaced the battery in my 06 G6 and had the same problem. the windows would not roll up or down how they did before. I read the answers on here and it does work. Hold up the window switch for ten seconds and it resets. You will have to do it to each window. Worked great. Thanks
