Electric Windows


I have a Megane II Sport Tourer.

My passenger window goes up to the top and then automatically goes back down 2 inches.
I have checked for any obstructions but cannot see any.

Can anyone shed any light on this? Can the sensors become faulty?

You could try doing a reset. Hold the button in the button in the fully open position for around 5 seconds and then repeat the procedure in the fully closed position

Thats probably whats happened, theres a security feature that enables them to move back a certain amount if anything (i.e. childs arm) gets in the way..

Thats probably whats happening, what i suggest is closing the window, as you hear it shut you should turn off the electrics instantly, maybe thatll sort it out.

Get it to a garrage and get it looked at is all id suggest.

Spot on advice by siaradbach,if the anti-pinch picks up on a problem it automatically drops the window,so if the top seal is a little tight it will have the same effect.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
