Normal Window function

So last night I was out on the town with the top down.

I needed to get into the passenger side. With the top up. The door opened normally or so I thought. When I closed it didn't exactly close all the way. The window didn't dip down to clear the top like it's supposed to.

I lowered it using the switch and the door functioned properly.

I raised the window and tried to close the door again. And again the window didn't dip down to clear the top, in fact the door latched and the window remained outside the top and the window channel.

QUESTION: What tells the window to move down when the handle is actuated?

I got the window to seat properly by lowering it first. Drove about 20 minutes back home. I parked and tried to cause the window to "fail" again but it wouldn't.

Experiences? Opinions? Options?

Re: Normal Window function

No ideas?

I haven't driven the car since. SO I guess I'll keep an eye on it.

Reset it so it knows its limits. Window needs some discipline!

With top up, ignition on and doors closed, sit inside and lower passenger window. Now raise it by holding the switch; when it reaches the top keep holding the switch for 5 seconds. Might have to do this procedure a couple of times.

This should set the auto-down function as well as the dropdown feature.

Mine has done this occasionally, no rhyme or reason.

I wish you success! Post when/if you find something.
