Auto Window stopped working

I have a 2006 LX and for some reason my auto window on my drivers side stopped working. The window goes up and down fine, its just the auto feature that doesn't work.

Look in the manual to see how to reset that feature.

Cool. I just assumed something was wrong. Didn't know I could just reset it. I'll check it out.

Been awhile since I looked in my '04 manual, but IIRC, lower window and hold the button for about 2 seconds after it stops going down.

Then, raise the window and hold it after it stops for about 2 seconds again. I know it's counterintuitive to hold the button after the window stops, but do it for only a couple or few seconds and it'll reset the auto up/down feature.

You're now good to go......

Just curious, was the car battery somehow disconnected? If so, you will have to input your radio security code as well before it will work.

Yes and no, I left my wife in the car when I went in a store. I turned the car off but kept the key on so she could listen to the radio, etc.. When I came out it still had power but would not start. Jumped it quick and was good to go. Radio never required a code. I guess it died just enough to trip the auto window feature and that is it.

Well this has happened to me a couple of times and the reset worked. Now it didn't go down the morning at work. So I went through the reset procedure a few times.

It didn't work. Wonder what else is going on. The window still goes up and down but no auto feature. Funny it was working on Thursday, and Friday, Sat, Sun, my son had the use of it. Hmmmm.

A month ago the front passenger lock will not autolock with the key fob or when I try to use the "auto" lock button on the driver or passenger side. Have to do it manually. Figured it will be a project when it gets warm.

Maybe things are starting to go.

Might be a bad battery. Sometimes the radio/navi and auto up/down feature is very sensitive to battery condition.

If the battery is on its last legs (cell?) a start followed by a one mile drive, then use of radio for ten mins with the engine off will kill a battery.

Thats how I found out I needed a new one.

FWIW, I suspect my daily commute of over 50 miles contributed to the battery lasting longer than most. Mine made it until 3 years and 364 days.

I replaced the battery last year. I had to apply the reset, and it worked like a charm, first time. We had some very cold mornings the last couple of weeks and the starter turned over pretty good.

I asked my son if he had any problem. He said that the window was frozen and it took a couple of hits of the button to get it to come down. Wonder if that just over taxed the motor/mechanism.

I just came back from running an errand and the auto is now working.

I didn't occur to me that it was okay until I went to close it and it went up all by iteslf. Of course I tried it a few more times and it worked.

Oh well enjoy it while I can, I guess......

A frozen window can cause the window to "loose" the auto up/down setting (i.e., resets itself). That's probably what happend to yours.
