If I close my windows with the door open, the window goes up ALL the way. Upon closing the door, the window is too high to properly engage the weatherstrip on the top, and just lays on the outside of it.
Is that normal?

NO, on my 2005 SSR the window dose not go up all the way if you bring it up with the door open, it will only go up the last 1/2 inch after you close the door.

Must be an 04 problem that GM has corrected in the 05's with no recall for us :nono

My 04 does the same thing as the 05 listed..All the way up except for the last 1/2 inch and then it rolls on up after the door is closed. I have not heard of this problem as of yet...Wow something new to look out for.

Want something else new to look for (well you wouldn't have to look too hard).
I had the control unit for the fan replaced (for the noise on speed 2). Well the noise on speed 2 is gone! BUT there was whistling on speed 3 and when you put the vent on defrost, it blew out the dash...when you put it on dash, it blew out the foot well....when you put it on feet, it blew out Def. And Hot was Cold and Cold was Hot....oh and when you turned the fan off, you would still get air coming out the dashboard, the faster I went the more air blew. So took it back in today and they said that the control unit was not holding it programming and they have ordered a new one :mad

Try resetting the windows

My '05 did the same thing and I was ready to head to the dealer until I found this trick on this site.
With the doors closed, roll down the window and hold the button down for 5 seconds, then roll up the window and hold the button for 5 seconds. This should reset the windows.
Worked great first time for me on the drivers door, the passenger side took a few tries because I was standing outside with the door open. Once closed it worked great.
No problem since.
Good liuck

No, it's not normal...

If the down and up trick didn't work, it's time to see the dealer.

BTW, If it wasn't noted, the trick does not work if you use the express down. Press and hold the down button and hold it for 5 sec after the window stops moving. Then up and hold 5 sec's.

Good follow up note, I hadn't mentioned that in my post.

Had the same problem on my 05. Turned out it was the door lock switch, once it was replaced it worked fine. :flag

Are you are saying that the window didn't index down when the door handle was pulled.
