Window calibration

Every time I roll up my front passenger window it automatically rolls back down again to the same exact spot. Anyone know how to fix this? 04 93 ss-

Press the anti-pinch button that sits right below the window buttons. Maybe?

Two solutions....

Quick (and temporary) solution:

Depress and hold the window lock button when closing the window. This will by-pass the anti-pinch feature.


Longer and permanent solution:

Recalibrate the anti-pinch feature. This involves holding the window down with the palm of your hand when attempting to raise the window. Have to do it a specified number of times. Detailed instructions are in the Owner's Manual (I think).

I'm still trying to figure this out. The manual says something like, roll the window up and down three times, but that doesn't work either-

Pinch protection
On certain model variants, the electric windows
are equipped with pinch protection.
This is activated if something gets trapped
between the window pane and door frame
when the window is closed. The window will
stop and lower slightly.
Temporary overriding the pinch protection
If dirt, ice or similar create so much resistance
that the pinch protection cuts in, the
pinch protection can be temporarily disengaged
and the window closed.
1 Make sure the ignition is ON.
2 Press and hold the button on the
driver’s door while operating the window
in question.
3 Close the window in question.
The pinch protection will be active the next
time a window is operated.
Calibration
After a loss of battery power, or if the automatic
closing feature does not work, the
electric windows must be calibrated for the
pinch protection to work.
Fully open and close the windows at least
twice. You will hear a chime after successful
calibration.

That doesn't work?

I'm trying to get it so that it doesn't roll back down after i roll it up and none of those instructions are working. I can close the window by using the anti-pinch button, but that gets annoying. I might just have to take it to the dealer or i guess keep trying different methods. Thanks though-

Hmm. I'd probably take it to the stealership. The price shouldn't be must more than $40, unless there's actually something wrong. It sounds like a setting or a TechII fix though.

Pull the fuse labled f5 with the ignition on and rol the window down, up, down, and up then hold until the chime in the sid has sounded. That will recalibrate the windows. If you just hold down on the window it will disable the window not relearn it.

Recap:
Pull fuse F5
roll down
roll up
roll down
rollup and hold until chime has sounded.

EDIT: fuse panel is located on drivers side kick panel.

I don't have a fuse labeled F5. What is the description for that fuse i.e. its function so maybe I can find it. Thanks-

you can just discconect the door connector in the door jam with the window that is giving you a problem for like a sec, shut all the doors, sit in the drivers seat and operate that window with the switch pack, go up down up down like 3 or 4 times holding the switch in the up and down position for a 1 sec in between and you should hear a confermation beep when its set

all right....so lets say its your passanger side window that is giving you the .

1) open passanger side door, in the door jam you will see a black connector, dissconect it

2) reconnect it.

3) shut all doors and sit in driver seat

4) from the drivers side window controls, operate the passanger side window

5) go down hold for one second, go up hold for one second, keep repating this till you hear a confermation beep. the window is now programed
