Initialization of power window
If the vehicle’s battery is disconnected due
to situations such as battery or fuse
replacement, the following functions are
deactivated.
. One-touch auto up/down function
. Anti-entrapment function
Initialize the power window in the following
procedure to reactivate such functions.
1. Close the driver’s door.
2. Turn the ignition switch to the “ON”
position.
3. Open the driver’s side window halfway
by pushing down the power window
switch.
4. Pull up the power window switch and
close the window completely. Continue
pulling up the switch for approximately 1
second after the window is closed completely.
Thanks man, that is an interesting and simple little fix.
Just curious what is the anti-Entrapment function?
I like the idea of not being coerced by police into a fictional crime ;)

so I tried this half open window method and it didn't work. the window goes down fine, but goes up only 1 inch with each pull. any thoughts?
Im having this exact problem. My battery died on me once and turned off the auto feature (which was already going in 1 inch increments) and the window went up and down without problem. I tried the "fix" to re-enable the auto touch feature but it made it go in 1 inch increments again :(

I just got in the car started it and rolled the window down and held the switch for 1 second and then rolled the window up and held the switch for another second.. Window works
