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...
