Q: Power window not wanting to stop

asked by on

When I use the window control switch to roll up the driver's side window, the window goes up, but doesn't seem like it wants to stop once it reaches the top. The motor seems like it is trying to push the window up past its natural stopping point.

Hi there. Sounds like your window monitoring needs to be reset/calibrated. Have a certified mechanic diagnose your power window issue with the proper tests and tools.
