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.

This worked for me on a 55 reg:

Disconnect the battery for 30 seconds. Then follow the calibrate instructions that can be found under "Windows" in the owner's manual. Took less than 5 minutes in all to fix.

Drivers window goes down but not up


The motor and fuse is good - the likely culprit is a bad contact in the switch when you attempt to activate the up position.

I would replace the switch for that window.

I have a 2010 Toyota Camry with a front passenger window problem. The window goes up and comes right back down sometimes when I push the button to roll the window up. The window will finally stay up...


Hello Susan..... What you are experiencing is the jam protection function: During automatic
closing operation, the window stops and opens half way if something gets caught
between the window and window frame. If the window receives a strong impact,
this function may work even if nothing is caught.

If the power window does not operate automatically or the jam protection function does not operate correctly, you should normalize the power window
To normalize the power window:
1. Push down the power window switch and lower the windows fully.
2. Pull up the switch until the windows close and hold the switch for a second. Make sure that the window open and close automatically. If the power windows cannot be operated properly, have it
checked by your dealer.

Electric window only goes down half way


On the inside trim, you can remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. Pull back the weather seal. It sounds like the guide rails may be loose and snagging the window. Or your regulator may be broken (not likely)

1999 A6. Driver's side window goes down but then


there are many reasons , but the most common is a worn and week motor or a ground problem giving too low voltage , or the window guides are worn too thin . best thing to do is put a voltage meter on the motor and roll up the window , look for voltage increases or voltage drop .

To put the windows up manually you will need to get inside the door. It sounds like you could have a bad switch. If you take the door off or can take out the window switch panel, put a jumper wire on the switch that tell the window to go up. If this is not working go directly to the motor where you can give the motor power by closing the circuit at the motor and the window will either go up or down. If it goes in the wrong direction just reverse the polarity of the wires.
