My owners manual for my Beattle shows steps to reprogram the safety feature. Check your manual and see if you have that option also.

It's running into some sort of resistance, and the auto-down feature (that keeps poeple from closing their head in the window) kicks in. If you want to check for this, pull up on the window while it's going up to help, if it goes all the way up, something is in the way.
