auto power windows

hey...i got a 2007 gt with automatic up and down windows. however the auto up has quit working. so the window never completely closes when the door shuts. any ideas on what may have caused it or how to fix it?

Re: auto power windows

I don't know the electrical schematic for S197 bodies (05+) but I'd assume if the window still rolls up and not all the way it might be off the window track. I'd look at that first. As for the module, I don't think there is a separate "up" fuse but I'd check fuses to start with.

Re: auto power windows

Well if it goes down fine it could be the switch or a wire or something. If its going down slow or not very much probably the motor which would be very weird on an 07

Re: auto power windows

its goin down fine. it goes up with no problem. but when you open the door the window comes down a 1/4" so not to get caught on the frame. and then its supposed to go back up when the door closes. thats where the problem lies. wasnt sure if maybe there was a switch that im missing. its goin on with both driver and passanger door. however it started working again the other day. but with in 2 days it quit again.

Re: auto power windows

I know you can adjust how the window behaves (going up/down when you open/close the door) but not sure thats your issue. It may just be a bad sensor that knows when the door is opening/closing to operate the window.

If when you pull up on the switch the window does not automatically go up then it may be all tied into that switch.

Re: auto power windows

thanks, that gives me an idea to look for. may have to refer to the old school ways of the hanes manual. cant seem to find any specs online for it.

Re: auto power windows

I would look in the manual. Does this only happen when you open and close the door? Or Does it happen anytime you open and close the window? If it's all of the above it may be a window regulator. Should be under $300 part+labor to have it fixed.

Re: auto power windows

Your car is an '07; how many miles are on it? It may be that the posts or the latch devices on the door need to be adjusted. After a few years of opening and closing the doors, the hinges wear a bit and will start to sag, which may be causing the door closed sensor to not push the window the rest of the way up. Close your door and if the window doesn't seal like it's supposed to, try lifting up on the door handle to raise the door a bit and see if the window seals.

Re: auto power windows

It may be as simple as getting into the car and hit the up switch on the window. Once it's all the way up, simply hold the switch in the up position for about 2-3 seconds so it learns the upward limit of the window. If you've removed or swapped the battery, the car tends to loose those settings. This has worked on some other cars I've owned. Try the simple stuff first before you start tearing stuff apart.

that was it exactly. by the end of the day of searching and buyin a haynes(which wasnt in there at all) i finally went out to the ford dearler. talked to the service mgr. who simply walked out side and within 30 seconds had both windows working. the only reason it took that long was cuz i had him show me what he did. thank you all for the help. really should have joined a forum a long time ago when i started messing with cars.

Re: auto power windows

No. The windows stays on track.Just when you open the door, the window pops down. When it is fully open it pops back up when you try and close it. You have to reopen the door and close it.

Re: auto power windows

Hm. I haven't dealt with the 05+ windows so I can't really say. It sounds like they are working somewhat as the windows are supposed to drop with the door open to clear the pillar. When the door shuts the window should then roll up again into the door jam/seal. Perhaps it is a faulty sensor, i.e., it is not sensing the door's ajar correctly? What year is it? When did you buy it? I suggest bringing it into the dealer if it's still under warranty or post up a new thread about your problem so it gets more attention.

Re: auto power windows

This resolved my problem as well with my '05 GT. I turn on the accessory, held each window switches in the up position for ~10 seconds and they roll up automatocally again. Thanks a bunch!
