Question about 2006 Honda Odyssey

2 Answers

Windows open automatically

This is completely random. After parking the car, going shopping or whatever and coming back to the car, we find each window open about 2 inches. Now I know for a fact that I have not opened the windows. At once point, I actually saw the windows open when I hit unlock on the car. Took it to a Honda dealer and they said that they couldn't fix it because they couldn't replicate the problem. It's started to get really annoying, its happened before overnight when it was raining outside.

    Alarm system is factory installed. No 3rd party parts have been installed onto this van, except for a rear bumper and truck door after being rear-ended. The problem still existed before the accident. The van has appx. 22,000 miles on it with normal maintenance every 5000 miles.

This is a feature from Honda Alarm system, if you keep holding the unlock button on your key, all the windows will come down to let fresh air come in before you get in the car. I do enjoy this feature :) I am supprise that the dealer didn't know about it.

Toyota highlander window opens by itself

You don't mention HOW she "puts the window back up" - does the power window work OK when raising or lowering the window.
There may a short circuit causing the window motor to turn on.
Let me know if the window operates normally sometimes; and whatever information or description you might have.

1998 Park Avenue Drivers window seems to twist slightly when going down, stopping the window, usually within the first inch or two. this only happens sometimes, and does not depend on weather or temp. do...

Sounds like a track problem. It happens sporadically because the track will occasionally align itself when the window is closed, allowing you to open the window normally but will work itself away fromthe door after you open it. You probably hear a strange noise when closing the window. The track needs repair. This will require opening the door panel to secure the track or replace it altogether.

Driver Window

on the power window system on these cars they have a feature called anti-jam
its so if a child has there fingers in the windows it will drop down so the child dose not get hurt
there should be like a sensor switch like a park break has that lets the motor know that the window is not jammed it is just wound up
if you take off your door trim and have a look there should be some little button there that has most likely come out of place
give this ago
it should help
