The drivers side window keeps coming down after i pu it up all the way, it
will go all the way up, then come half way down again. But if i stop it
before it is all the way up, then 'inch' it up, it seems to stay up. But
will randomly go down again. Anyone got any ideas ? It's driving me mad.
I'll bet Citroen's will charge a bomb to look at it. It's a 110HDi estate,01
reg, & a high miler. Cheap, this is probably why.
Modern electric windows have sensors to stop people getting things trapped
in them. I suspect yours does too.
Try putting your hand against the top of the window frame then hitting the
one-shot to close the window. It should hit your hand and come down again.
Now I guess to fix it you need to adjust the sensor that decides where
"proper" up is. Don't ask me where it is - I've never had one apart...
On the grounds that the system is designed to *prevent* manual crushage then
a hand presents itself as the ideal test subject.
However given that said system is already in error, the use of a hand
substitute would be wise, yes.
Has the battery been disconnected?
It says in the Xantia handbook you have to reset the anti-pinch device
if the battery has been disconnected. Try this:
Open the window fully, then close it, it will only close part-way. Press
the switch repeatedly until the window is completely closed. If the
window descends intermittently whilst trying to close it, press the
switch briefly and repeatedly until the window is completely closed.
Hi, yes it closes all the way up from fully open, in one smoothe movement.
But then opens to half way again, it sometimes just opens on it's own from
fully closed, when i turn the wipers to autowipe. The only way i can get it
to stay fully up, is to stop it about half way up, then intermittently
press/lift the switch to close the window a bit at a time. But then it might
come half way down when i use the autowipe. Yipes ! ! Ray
Ive had this problem before on a 406.
Have you tried lubricating the window runners around the glass with
silicone spray yet?
If the window senses any resistance on the way up, The safety featue winds
it back down again.
