: Express Up Window Problems - Electric Gremlins!

I just took my V out of storage for the first time since October. I thought I noticed "Glitches" when trying to use the express Up Window for the front last year, but I never really paid attention.

Well last night as I backed it into the garage I tried to use the Express up window for the driver side. It didnt work. I pushed it 3-4 times... Up, Down, Up, Down etc... and even tried to just do the partial click to put it up just a bit. Well after doing it on about the 5th or so try it finally worked. So I put it down and put it up using the Express Up & Down on the driver side.

So then I tried the Passenger side.... Same thing, it didnt work, then finally it worked after a couple of times.

So the true test was if both sides would work. NOPE. So then the drivers side Express Up wouldnt work again, and only the passenger side worked. :banghead:

Has anyone else had this problem? Any Ideas on fixes for this? It seems like a computer glitch, but Maybe its the switch/connection that needs some attention?

Any help would be appreciated!

Hold it in the down position for a few seconds and then do the same in the up position. Try that.

I think maybe its an owners manual glitch! lol Don't worry OP you aren't the only one who has come around asking this question. BTW the procedure is auto down the whole way and then hold up on both switches until you reach the top and hear the "click" (not really a click but there is a noticeable noise to be heard when they are programmed).

Ha ha ha... Owners Manual? What's that? Kidding... I have one downloaded, but I didnt think to look in there.

Thanks for the Info! I will give that a shot... Im sure that will take care of it.

Don't worry I didn't know there was a way to turn on the fog lights (just never investigated them out) for over a year! :shhh:

^^^ yeah that's pretty bad....

the fog lights on the V1 are the most functional foglights i've ever seen on any vehicle period. even stock they're so bright you could almost use them to double as headlights

my fogs have become my dead of night lights.. better then the hi beams on pitch black roads.. just gotta kill them once you see oncoming traffic. 55watt 8k hids could cause an accident
