OK. I really like the window auto up feature, but I keep forgetting to use it! Everyday when I enter/exit the parking garage, the card reader is just before a bend and it's nice to be able to pull forward, tap the up button and take the corner while putting my card away at the same time. The problem is I find myself sitting at the beginning of the bend and holding the up button until the window is closed. It's an old habit to break! So how many of you do this?

Once I found this great feature it's used every time I have to put the window back up. :29:

I use it all the time. Problem now is that I am so use to the auto up feature that I accidentally try to do it in the 99 Accord and the 74 Benz...

I always auto up. It just ruins you. I now try to auto up our other cars. I go nowhere with that.

I like it, but I would like to see it on the windows from the drivers side. My 95 530it has auto down for all windows and auto up for just the drivers windows.

On the Pilot it looks like it is just the switch that controls it. I might look into getting 3 more and installing them. Not sure if it will void anything

No only do I always auto-up, I keep thinking I have it on all windows. In fact, I discovered that the button that controls the right rear passenger window (from the driver's door panel) is sticky, and so it acts like an auto-up as well :D Now I need to figure out what made this button sticky so I can make all the other passenger window buttons sticky as well.

I use the auto down, then the auto up feature twice every workday- entering and exiting the swipe-card controlled parking garage.

Now this is an OLD thread. Since posting this long ago, I've become used to this feature and use it without missing a beat. In fact, it now bothers me when I'm in my wife's Sienna that doesn't have this feature!

I use it pretty consistently. Wish it was at least on the passenger front side too. Those are the 2 windows that are down the most.

My guess would be that it has power feed back for the "anti-pinch" feature. So when the motor (or controller) senses too much load on the motor it reverses.
