today the auto-up on my '96 318is driver's window stopped working, it
now only goes up on manual, usually if i press and click it continues to
go up on auto. the auto still works fine for down.
i just had a new battery installed today... but i havn't noticed any
other electrical problems so is it likely or a coincidence or is there
something i can do to test this...? any info appreciated :)
The window needs to be taught again how far UP is. You have to hold the
manual up button continuously through an entire UP cycle. This will teach
the window controller how far UP is, then the Auto UP feature will work
I've not got any electrical info on these but most use current sensing to
cut off the motor at the end of travel - when it stalls the current goes
up. Can't see any reason to do it differently but would love to hear if
I'm wrong and how it does work.
