    Question Power Window Problem - Driver Side

    Recently, my driver-side window is acting up. It no longer goes up or down with a single touch; I have to hold the switch. Not that big a deal, but the slight drop of the window when the door is opened does not go back up to make a complete seal when the door is closed. Of course, when I am in the vehicle I can just push the button and up it goes. The problem is when I park and leave the vehicle the window remains slightly down and not fully sealed. Before taking it to the shop, does anyone have a suggestion on a DIY fix?

    another member had a (somewhat) similar problem ... that case was a door latch mechanism and the associated signals for the window
    however yours has the added issue of the one touch not working ... hopefully it is just a problem with that particular switch
    try the user manual content about "resetting" the window??

    You may try to reset window before you go to a shop.

    Good! Amazing what a little reset will do!

    Now if only the better half had such a function ... if she saw this I’m dead

    Adding on to this thread, got an intermittent issue where always and only at first start up of the car for the day, I auto drop the driver's window all the way down and the window makes a loud thud sound. After that, I try to replicate the same issue and it dosent happen or make that sound.

    Stealership knows about it but they cant replicate it after the first time so they are saying if we open it and find no issue, with the window mechanism , I will get charged 1 hr of labour.

    Anyone else dealing with this issue in terms of the window regulator holder making a loud thud sound when dropped all the way down for the first time after first startup of the day?
