    S 80 Volvo driver side window goes all the way down and goes up but not all the way, lacks about an inch from completely closing.

    The answer that was given about re programing the computer does not make sense in that the window is going all the down but not completely closing.

The window regular and window motor has to be checked.This windows are controlled by regular and motor.If any of this is getting blocked then window will not function as required.Also check the window frame if any thing blocking there.Just once Make the window up with your hand manually instead of auto button for power windows. Close the window completely with your hand. then check by auto window button. If the windows don't work, any of several issues is likely to blame, including no electricity, bad switches, bad motor, damaged window regulator, or even a broken wire.
Automotive power windows use a switched motor to operate a mechanical window regulator. This regulator moves the pane of glass into the door.
To check and confirm the fault try this procedure:--
1) Open the fuse panel and check the fuses for disrupted elements. The fuse panel at the driver's side kick panel, or between the dashboard and the door. In some cars the fuses are mounted in the engine compartment, in front of the driver's side firewall. Check the fuses and replace if faulty.
2)
Test the wiring harnesses from the fuse panel to the switches and from the switches to the window regulator motor. If the circuits test fine, then proceed to the next step. If a wiring harness is shorted or damaged, it will need to be replaced.3) Remove and test the switches on the driver's side door panel. Pry them up with a screwdriver and pull them free of the panel's opening. Disconnect the switch assembly from the wiring harness by pulling the adapter plug from the assembly. Test the switches individually by touching both sides of one switch with the circuit tester. Each switch will have two terminals, and if the tester is positive on both terminals while the window is activated, then the switch is good. Replace the switch assembly if any of the switches fails the test. Most power window switches come in assembled modules and cannot be replaced individually.4) Remove and test (if possible) the power window motor. Turn the armrest bolts and interior door handle screws counterclockwise, then pull the door panel free from the pop rivets. Behind the panel are a window regulator, the window glass, and the electric driver motor. The motor is usually located in the lower right section of the door. Unplug the motor from the wiring harness and unbolt it from the window regulator by turning the bolts counterclockwise. Pull the motor straight out, away from the gears. And check out if motor is receiving exact 12 volts at the terminals. If not then either motor is faulty or there is a confirm short if motor is replaced.
5) If all the above mentioned possibilities are checked out ok then the window regulator needs to be checked. Inspect the window regulator's joints for rust or stiff movement, if the electrical system is operating correctly. These joints can corrode or break, causing the window to stop working. With the door panel off, the window regulator can be removed and replaced by sliding the glass away from the track mounts, then turning all mount bolts counterclockwise and manipulating the regulator out of the door.
Thanks. keep updated for any more query.you can rate this solution and show your appreciation.

    This is more helpful than the previous expert's advice however the motor is working, the fuse is or it the motor would not function and the switch works. Would the problem be that that the window is off it's track because again it will just not close completely?

    Can you address the last question and I will approve your submission. Thanks.

    Yes its Possible that window getting out of track.But also if its out of track then it will not go till that up and down.So it feels that the track it self is getting blocked from where the glass passes or the seals holding the glass are bit loose anywhere .check out that tooo.
    And thanks for the appreciation.

Multiple possible problems including but not limited to a defective computer

try reprogramming the window/door operation first


I am assuming you are talking about the one-touch-down option?

My driver side window goes up and then


the feature you describe is the anti trap function,its to stop kids getting there fingers trapped,sometimes if there is an obstruction it will do it itself...it is not adjustable.try unlocking/hold key over for 30 secs to see of the windows go down,if they do then lock/hold key over the windows will go up and you have just reset them,if not,then do not use autoclose to close it,until you have closed it normally that should reset it.Otherwise ,lubricate the runners to see if that helps.

Just replaced passenger front window on the 2001 v70. Do not remember if window stops an inch down or does it go all the way down?


I am not exactly sure on this model but most of the time the power windows on the front doors go down all the way. I would check the right passenger side door if it goes all the way down, then most likely the drivers side door should also. Usually the rear windows go down and stop an inch from being all the way down. Some cars are set up to lower the front windows only an inch then by pressing the window down button again, they will continue to roll all the way down.

Power window on XC90 wont stay up on 'auto-up'??


Put the window down all the way and then hold the switch up, hold it until the window closes all the way up, and continue to hold it for about 10 sec. after the window is closed. Try this a few times, but if this does not work you will will probably have to take it to the dealer. They will have to do this for you with the Volvo computer scanner, this is covered under warranty if you are still with in by millage if not they will charge around 50 dollars.
