Window wont go down so door can be opened/closed

Postby liamraff97 » Wed Jan 11, 2017 6:32 pm

Hello.
Recently my driver side window stopped working. it wouldn't go up or down using the controls. it turned out the window regulator had broken and needed changed. I changed the window regulator and now the window is working when the controls are pressed.
The problem I have now is that the window motor has seemed to have 'forgot' that the window should go down/up slightly to allow the door to be opened/closed. To get out of the car I have to manually put the window down with the controls. How can I reset this back to the windows normal settings, Please help.
*The passenger side window is working as it should.

There's a reset procedure for the window drop, have you tried it?

It's something along the lines of:

Hold window down button
Wait until windows reach the bottom and then hold for an additional ~3 seconds
Hold window up button
Wait until windows reach the top and then hold for an additional ~3 seconds

It may even be in the manual actually...

I'm guessing you did get a controller specifically for a scirocco and not another vw?

It might a coding issue with the new controller. As I understand it, the controller is generic and used across a number of models and is coded for the Scirocco so the window drops on opening / closing.

Obviously best to compare the code from your door before the new controller was fitted to what it is now. But I guess that's not an option or you'd have done it.

So other thoughts:

Get someone with VCDS to read your door controller code. Post the code and what options you have, age and model of car. See if someone with the same options, model etc will check their code and compare. Options are important as stuff like folding mirrors, puddle lights will change the code. Different models are important as for example pre-facelift have the boot release switch on the door, post-facelift don't which will also change the code.

Get someone with VCDS to read your misbehavng door controller code and the other, still working, door controller code and compare coding. You'll probably need to compare bit and byte by byte as the two codes are going to be different anyway. They'll be different because stuff like having mirror switches and two window switches on the drivers door but not the passenger door will mean different codes. Find something else different and that may resolve your issues.

I created this tool for someone else who was having issues with their door coding: https://jsfiddle.net/yv8oqe1z/2/

If the passenger door is working properly, you can do the following:
* Get someone to read the coding from the passenger door and enter that into the box labelled "Original Passenger Door Coding (Module 52)"
* Click the "Decode" button. This will then update the check boxes with the options that are fitted to the passenger door.
* If you have the boot release button in the drivers door, tick the box "Rear Lid Remote Unlock Button".
* If you do not have the boot release button tick the box "Rear Lid Remote Unlock Button" anyway, then untick it again to get the correct coding for the drivers door
* Make a note of the current Drivers door coding (just in case)
* Recode the drivers door with the code displayed in the "New Drivers Door Coding (Module 42)" box.

Hopefully that will get everything working as it should.
