When I found this site, and joined, about 3 weeks ago, one of the first treads I read was on reprograming the windows. Well, it happened to mine. I had to do the drivers side yesterday, and the passenger window today. Worked great, but my question is this: Is this beginning of a more serious problem I need to discuss with dealer's service dept., or just one of the little quirks that has to be dealt with when it happens?

Thanks for any advise you may have,

Duke

how do you reprogram the windows?
I found this in another thread: Hope it helps:

"The computer has forgotten the window positions for top and bottom of travel and needs to be reprogrammed. This you can do for your self. The 04 owners manual pg 2-10 tells how.

From the manual:

Programming the Power Windows
If the battery on your vehicle has been recharged,
disconnected, or is not working properly, you will need
to reprogram the power windows for them to work
properly. Before reprogramming, you will need to replace
or recharge your vehicle’s battery.
To program the windows, follow these steps:
1. With the ignition in ACCESSORY or RUN, close
the doors.
2. Fully lower the windows using the driver’s power
window switches. Then raise the windows
completely.
The windows are now programmed.

It didn't say in the owners manual, but I remember reading elsewhere that you should not use the express down to lower the window. Hold the down button down until the window bottoms and for a couple seconds longer. When raising the window, do the same hold for a couple of seconds after it tops out."

Had the same problem with mine. Tried the reprogramming, worked for a short time. Took car in for service, and they replaced the doorlock switch. It seemed to solved the problem. Hope this helps.

My alarm was going off for no reason, turned out it was the window losing its memory and going up to seal, then down to the open door position again. I guess the alarm then thought someone was breaking in to the car and went off. I scheduled a dealer service, but I reprogrammed the window and no problem for now. I guess I'll have to watch out for that door switch thing though...

The fastest way to reprogram the windows without changing or recharging your battery is to put the window all the way down with the car started and open the door, take a screwdriver or something thin enough to get into the latch and run it through the latch a couple of times. You will have to open the door handle everytime you do this. Then put the window up and see how that worked. If still having problems let me know.

Thank you, they seem to be working ok now after reprogramming by holding the switch. If it happens again, I will try it this way.
thanks again, Duke
