Still no joy. Reset didn't do anything, is there anything else this can be?

it could be sticking, as if there is resistance detected when the window is moving up, it will automatically stop. Your best bet it to take the door card off and have a look at the components to see if anything is obstructing the glass. You could also grease the components a little to ensure they move more freely.

it will be the window seel more than likely, its sounds like what mine does, it goes up but there is resistance on the front part of the seel and it automatically goes back down, if u spray spray grease in between the seel and put the window up and down a few times, it will cure it, temporerily. Try it, and that will determin whether its the seel or not.

cheers,
i just washed my car, i run my finger along the sealss the window seams to be working fine.
i dont no if its where the seals have got wet and has allowed the window to slide easier.
Hopefuly it stays fixed. if it doesnt what do i need new seals??

Yea sumtimes when the window got wet, mine would work but the problem came back when it dried.

basically thnik its just the seals giving abit too much friction on the glass that makes the safety thingy put the windows down again, think even if you run your fingert down it with abot of force it will sort it :)

i sorted it by doing this wind your window down lift the plastic seal from the outside up and it should come out then stick wd40 onto the summer and clean the real then put it back in i did that 2 months ago and havent had a problem since hope this works for you if not pm me
