You first should fix the battery problem. You might have a bad battery, charging system problem, or bad connection. If you fix this problem, or if the car will start now, and you still have problems with the window, you might have a bad motor, or possibly broken wire in the door area. It's hard to tell without doing some testing. Fix the battery problem or charge it up. It's also possible you could have two problems at the same time. Good luck.

My jeep interior lights won't go out unless I reset the battery and now it's got to where the instruments panel says the driver door is open and the lights won't go out and the windows won't go down

Look for broken wires inside the black boot from the body to the door . Very common ! Opening and closing of the doors over time they break .

2. Press the driver side power window main switch and fully open the driver side window.
3. Pull up the driver side power window main switch to manual-up position to fully close the driver side window,
and keep holding the switch up at the position for about 2 seconds to complete initial setting.


? By following the procedure below, the two-step down function is switched to non-operative when it is
operative, and to operative when it is non-operative.

My passenger side front window (England, left) dosnt work properly. It goes down ok but it will not go back up unless operated by the drivers doors. (England, Right)

Hi, has your car got global closing. Sometimes they forget their memory, normally after pulling a fuse or flat battery. Open all your windows, sunroof if you have one. Press the lock on your fob and keep held down, all windows should close, this also works for opening when you keep hold of the open button, try doing this a few times, eventually it restores memory. I also have a 2001 focus.

In my 03 mercedes e320 wagon the sunroof opens only half way when auto open is used. Is this normal?

No. Push the open switch until glass is fully open....continue to hold switch for 5 seconds to allow motor to memorize open position...ditto closing.

This also applies to your side windows. Any time battery disconnected or voltage drops below 10.5 volts all convenience memories need resetting like this.

Hold window switch down fully for 5 seconds after glass has gone fully down. .....release switch

Repeat for other windows. Switch must be in second detent position when doing this.

NEVER boost charge this vehicles battery in the car unless GROUND connector disconnected from battery...serious electrical damage can occur if this is not done.

Check the wiring between the drivers door and the A pillar(the body of the car). Sometimes the harness breaks from opening and closing the door.
