The pilot's side window does not go up when closig the door

When I open the pilot's side door the window goes slightly down, but after closig the door the window should go up, but it does not.
The problem began when I changed the battery because the original one was already dead.
I think that there must be a sensor somewhere that is not working properly.
Can you help me trying to solve this problem?
Thanks in advance

Try resetting the windows. I do this every time I sense an increase in wind noise while driving.

Close the doors. Roll the windows all the way down. Pull the button to roll them up and hold it for 5 secs or so even after it stops. If this is a reset problem you will see the window go up a little more and stop again. Now you are reset.
Hope it helps.

I cant tell from looking at the owners manual, which fuse is linked to the drivers side window. Mine is not going up or down.

All the windows are fused by just one fuse, if it goes all the windows stop working. You either have a defective driver door control switch or the window regulator motor is defective. I would think the motor inside the door that lifts the window is the issue here. You can verify it (window motor defective) by doing this simple test, at night open the door and leave it open, operate the driver door window switch and watch the interior lights (dome light in particular), they will dim just very slightly if the motor is defective, if they do not dim then the switch is likely the cause.

Passanger side window won't go down all the way

There may be a child safety device on the latch side of the door you can see when door is opened, which prevents the window from going all the way down. Open the door, and check somewhere near the part that holds the door closed. See if there is a slide lever or button you have to operate to get the window to go all the way down. This is common on many vechicles.

My window on my vert was doing that. Short of opening up the door and trying to do it myself, I took it in to the BMW guys at Bimmerhaus. They readjusted the window for me and it was good to go. Pretty much cost 1 hour of labor and a couple of clamps. $100+ or thereabouts.

First open your drivers door. Now while holding the switch to go up or down....wiggle the wire harness between the door and the truck. Try this while moving the door from slightly closed to fully open. Try slightly wiggling some under the dash if thats not it. There sometimes are wires under the carpet for the windows....push down on a few spots while holding your switch also. Hope this helps to locate the problem

My drivers side window only goes down 1

if the noise is crunchy then the cable is frayed and needs replacing, if the noise is just a humming then either the motor is too weak and needs replacing or the mechanism is out of alignment and needs resetting.
if the window is loose try wiggling the window as you press the button, if you can make the mindow fully descend like this then its definately the alignment, this can be sorted by taking off the door panel and loosening the bollton bolts of the window guide, aligning them so the window is firmly bun not tighlt held, then tighten the bolts and test the window, you may need to try a slightly looser setting or slightly tighter setting to get the best performance out of the window, oiling the moving parts of the window mechanism cant do any harm, just dont get oil on the window itself or it will smear for weeks...

If your window should lower/raise slightly,when opening/closing.
Try reprograming
Make sure other door is shut
Open drivers door,lower window,enter car,shut door,raise/lower several times
Providing you have no other problems this will reset window.

The driver side window on my 2001 Passat won't roll up.

Pop out the switch on the door that has the issue, more than likely switch has gone bad and needs to be replaced. you will need to check it with a meter to see if power is getting to the switch and also to check when switch is activated if power goes through switch
