Technology is great most of the time. It used to be that you could replace the battery in your vehicle and not have to worry. However, many modern cars will lose the automatic window function after battery replacement. This means that the power window will still go up and down but the one-touch automatic function is lost.

This happens because parameters stored in the window control module get lost during battery replacement. But never fear, there is a way to restore the auto window function.

Part 1 of 1: Reset the automatic window feature

turning the key to the accessory position

Step 1: Turn the key to the accessory or on position. This will allow you to get started, making sure power goes to your windows.

Step 4: Roll the window completely up. Roll the window completely up and hold the auto button in the up position for 10 seconds.

Step 5: Test the auto power window function. Roll the windows up and down a couple of times using the auto function to ensure everything is working properly.

Performing these steps should restore your auto window function. If it does not, there may be further problems with the system. The team at YourMechanic is always available to help with your power window problems and to perform an inspection to get your system working properly again.

Ford Explorer - Window Switch is not working - Menlo Park, California
This was my first experience with YM and I could not have been happier. Once I found YM on-line, I scheduled an appointment which was simple and quick. From that point forward, Mark took over and did everyhting he said he would do (that is a rareity these days). He was punctual, detailed, thourough, and an excellent communicator. My overall experience was EXCELLENT.

Mark was very punctual and thorough. He came back because he wasn't completely happy with the first OEM part (window regulator) that he received after installation. He went an purchased a new part from the BMW dealer and reinstalled the new part. Highly recommend Mark for his knowledge of BMWs...

Whitney is awesome! He is an expert (25+ years), super professional, very friendly and helpful. He diagnosed my problem within about 2 minutes and set a plan to fix it. I was able to watch him work, so I increased my mechanical knowledge as well. I will never use another mechanic service again! I finally found a mechanic who I trust and who makes it super easy for me, all a better price than any shops I have been too.
