Electric windows

Post by Waggy1971 » Thu Sep 03, 2020 6:33 am

Last night my front electric.widows started playing up..
I can no longer open them using.my.buttons on the arm rest. The.rear ones still work fine.from there and the passenger opens.and closes using the button on the passenger.door, but neither of the front windows will open from the drivers buttons..

And ideas before I call the garage?

Fuse? I'm not sure if the back and front windows have their own fuses but worth checking. Rereading your post, it would seem more likely that there is a problem with the switches. I should ring the dealer. Is it still under warranty?

On the Yeti simply holding the switch in the up position for 5(?) seconds once the window is closed was enough to initiate a reset. I have not had an issue with the windows in the Karoq (nor heard of one from anybody else) but it might be worth a try...

Have fun,


Ian.

Even without being able to raise the window it might be worth trying Ian's tip (I think it's 10 seconds BTW. OR
With the car unlocked, try locking the car with the key fob until the windows close. ( you have to keep the fob button pressed after the car locks until the windows are fully closed)
If it works, again, keep the fob button pressed for at least 10 seconds after full closure, in the hope it may reset the system.
