Power Windows

The power window controls are located on the driver’s door trim panel. There is a single switch on the front passenger/rear passenger doors which operates the front passenger/rear passenger door windows. The window controls will operate only when the ignition switch is in the ON or ACC position.

Power Window Switches Power Window Switches

The power window switches remain active for up to 10 minutes after the ignition switch has been turned OFF. For vehicles equipped with an Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC), this feature is programmable. Refer to “Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)/ Personal Settings (Customer-Programmable Features)” in “Understanding Your Instrument Panel” for further information.

WARNING: Never leave children in a vehicle with the keys in the ignition switch. Occupants, particularly unattended children, can become entrapped by the windows while operating the power window switches. Such entrapment may result in serious injury or death.

Auto-Down Feature

The driver’s and front passenger’s (if equipped for passenger side) power window switches have an “Auto- Down” feature. Press the window switch past the first detent, release, and the window will go down automatically. To open the window part way, press the window switch to the first detent and release it when you want the window to stop. To stop the window from going all the way down during the Auto-Down operation, pull up on the switch briefly. For vehicles not equipped with the Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC), the power window switches will remain active for 45 seconds after the ignition switch is turned to the LOCK position. Opening either front door will cancel this feature. For vehicles equipped with the EVIC, the power window switches will remain active for up to 10 minutes after the ignition switch is turned to the LOCK position. Opening either front door will cancel this feature. The time is programmable. Refer to “Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)/Personal Settings (Customer- Programmable Features)” in “Understanding Your Instrument Panel” for further information.

Auto Up Feature with Anti-Pinch Protection

On some models, the driver’s and front passenger’s (if equipped for passenger side) power window switches have an “Auto Up” feature. Pull the window switch up to the second detent, release, and the window will go up automatically. To stop the window from going all the way up during the auto-up operation, push down on the switch briefly. To close the window part way, pull the window switch up to the first detent and release when you want the window to stop. For vehicles not equipped with the Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC), the power window switches will remain active for 45 seconds after the ignition switch is turned to the LOCK position. Opening either front door will cancel this feature. For vehicles equipped with the EVIC, the power window switches will remain active for up to 10 minutes after the ignition switch is turned to the LOCK position. Opening either front door will cancel this feature. The time is programmable. Refer to “Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)/Personal Settings (Customer- Programmable Features)” in “Understanding Your Instrument Panel” for further information.

NOTE:
• If the window runs into any obstacle during autoclosure, it will reverse direction and then go back down. Remove the obstacle and use the window switch again to close the window.
• Any impact due to rough road conditions may trigger the auto-reverse function unexpectedly during autoclosure. If this happens, pull the switch lightly to the first detent and hold to close window manually.

WARNING: There is no anti-pinch protection when the window is almost closed. Be sure to clear all objects from the window before closing.

Reset

At some point in time, it may be necessary to reactivate the auto-up feature. To do so, perform the following procedure: 1. Pull the window switch up to close window completely and continue to hold the switch up for an additional two seconds after the window is closed. 2. Push the window switch down firmly to the second detent to open the window completely and continue to hold the switch down for an additional two seconds after the window is fully open.

Window Lockout Button

The window lockout button on the driver’s door (below the power window switches) allows you to disable the window control on the other doors. To disable the window controls on the other doors, press the window LOCKOUT button. To enable the window controls, press the window LOCKOUT button a second time.

Wind Buffeting

Wind buffeting can be described as the perception of pressure on the ears or a helicopter-type sound in the ears. Your vehicle may exhibit wind buffeting with the windows down, or the sunroof (if equipped) in certain open or partially open positions. This is a normal occurrence and can be minimized. If the buffeting occurs with the sunroof open, adjust the sunroof opening to minimize the buffeting.
