My first real problem with my car. When my driver's side window is about half down or farther and I go to roll it back up, I press the button down to have the automatic close start. It goes about 2/3s up stops and drops back down an inch. Then I try and roll it up again and press and it goes up an inch then back down again an inch. I have also tryed to use my key and holding it to the lock direction to run all the windoes shut and it will do the same thing. I have to some times run it down to almost all the way and run it all the way back up while I hold the button down to the auto close position. My passenger side window has no problems. I think this has been caused from more use to the driver side.
Is there a sensor that thinks my window is to far up? I would understand it if it just stopped and I just pressed the buttom down again, but it drops down about an inch or more. It has been getting worse.
There was one time when I was using my key to close my windows and it was stopping and falling. So I decided to press upward on the glass and run my window up with my key again. It seemed to work, but yet another time I couldn't get this trick to work.
I am a studying Electrical Engineer, so I am plenty handy with electrical and mechanical systems. I just need to know what to look for.
PS. Anyone ever shimmed their doors. My drivers door seems to be sagging off and not latching inline. I was thinking about shimming the bottom hinge with a thin piece of steel. Maybe like 1 mil thickness.
