I thought I saw someone mention this, but I couldn't find the post. The auto up/down feature for my driver's side window is no longer working. Has anyone else experienced this? Am I missing something?
Thanks

This should fix the auto window problem.


"NOTE: Whenever the battery is disconnected, the
driver’s window AUTO function is disabled.

37. Start the engine. Push down on the driver’s
window switch until the window is fully open.

38. Pull up on the driver’s window switch to close the
window completely, then hold the switch for 2
seconds.

39. Test the window AUTO function."

Are there any other features like resetting the auto up/down windows available?

Steve:

What do you mean 'when the battery is disconnected' ? Wouldn't the power windows completely stop working when the battery is disconnected ? Not just the 'Auto' feature ? Maybe I don't understand it correctly.

I think he means when the battery is temporarily disconnected, you have to re-program the "auto" feature of the window. Similar to having to re-program the preset buttons on the radio.

I'm not real sure why my window lost its programming. The battery had not been disconnected. There is a chance that it had never worked, but I am pretty sure that I had tried it at least once.

Does that mean, you didn't go through pre-delivery checklist before you signed the papers ?

For everyone there is a good thread with checklists before you pick up the Pilot. Thanks to our sister site acuramdx.org

http://www.acuramdx.org/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=2802&highlight=checklist

I should probably put this delivery checklist in a separate thread where new members picking up their Pilot can do a search and easily find it.

auto-window

FYI -

Mine did not work when I took delivery (obviously the prep guy did not check it!).

I did the "reset" in the owners manual (and Steve01) and it has been flawless ever since.

Could have been disconnected in install an accessory like fog lights or auto day/night mirror? I don't see any reference in the fog light instructions, but there definitely is one in the auto day/night mirror instructions...

You're not imagining it...

I've had to reset my Auto-Window now 3 times now.

I've had no 'electrical' modifications / disturbances on the vehicle as stated in the manual, but the window just seems to forget......

If anyone finds a fix, I'd love to know.

Hearing that others have experienced the same thing, I think there's a problem out there.

Re: You're not imagining it...

Add me to the list...my auto up/down stopped working and I had to reset it once. The only remotely possible thing I could relate it to was a cell phone being charged with a bad connection (not being an elect. engineer I don't know if this could "simulate" a temporary battery disconnect).

I had to program mine when I first got it and it has worked fine ever since (purchased 6/3 and currently at ~2300 miles). I am assuming that the dealer did not prep it. When I got mine (the first day they were available for sale) mine still had all of the plastic wrap all over it, inside and out, so they probably rushed through the prep work.

I wonder what is going on with this, though. I hope there isn't an electrical problem. I had a Pontiac Grand Am with electrical problems and it never did get straightened out. I finally had to get rid of it because it was driving me crazy. I won't go through all of that again.

Has anyone recorded this in the Knowledge Base? I would like to see how many other people have experienced this.

NO PROBLEMS HERE

Haven't had any problems with mine. Actually stumbled across the auto up feature when I heard a 'click' when puliing the up button. Dealer here did one heck of a prep job.

Drivers window loses memory

OK, mine did it.
Worked fine for the first 1000 miles, then today it was not working.
I had done no electrical work to the Pilot, not even plugging anything into the power outlet.
I reset it, and all is fine for now, but I don't trust it will stay that way.
Lets get a count of everone having this problem, and make sure Honda knows about it.

PCM Idle Learn Procedure?

Does the "PCM idle procedure" have anything to do with this? In the CD changer and Auto/Day night instructions, after they tell you how to reset the AUTO function:

37. Start the engine. Push down on the driver's window switch until the window is fully open.

38. Pull up on the driver's window switch to close the window completely, then hold the switch for 2 seconds.

39. Test the window AUTO function.

They then tell you to do the following:

40. Do the PCM idle learn procedure.
- Make sure all electrical items are turned off.
- Start the engine. Hold the engine speed at 3,000 rpm with no load (in Park or Neutral) until the radiator fan comes on.
- Let the engine idle for about 5 mintues with the throttle fully closed and with all electrical items off.

NOTE: If the radiator fan comes on during this step, the time when it is operating must not be included in the 5 minutes.

I'm not sure if this has anything with it not taking, but I thought it might be worth a shot. Hope this helps...
