    Auto window malfunction

    Does anyone else's car do this? I try to auto roll the window back up, and it "bounces" off the top, and immediately re-opens to 3/4 and stops. Sometimes it does this repeatedly, and I have to inch the window up carefully to prevent it from opening itself again.

    Thats odd maybe its a faulty solenoid, you should bring it to the dealership and have them take a look since its still under warranty.

    Sounds like that could be it, can't think of any other parts of the window system that would cause that problem.

    Take it into the dealer and let us know of their findings

    It's not a faulty anything.

    Go in your car and roll your window down. Hold the window down button for a few seconds. Now roll your window up and keep the botton up for a few seconds.


    It should reset the auto window function.

    I'm not sure but you could do the up and down hold twice to make sure it resets.

    If the window refuses to roll up with the auto-up function, then it's a faulty something..

    I tried holding down the up/down switch like you said and it's still doing it. I'll probably bring it in soon and update.

    Are you sure? Because this is pretty common on another Acura forum and the resolution is to reset the auto window function.

    Keep your finger depressed fully on the window switch the whole time you roll down the window. After it is fully down, keep your finger on the switch fully depressed for 2 seconds.

    Then, do the opposite when you roll the window up. Keep the switch fully lifted up while the window rolls up, and for an extra 2 seconds after it is fully closed.
