The driver door power window switch has a Auto-Down feature. The switch is equipped with two detent positions when actuating the power window OPEN. The first detent position allows the window to roll down and stop when the switch is released. The second detent position actuates an integral express roll down relay that rolls the window down after the switch is released. When the express down relay senses an amperage spike (motor pushing against down stop) in the feed circuit, current is turned off to the motor. The AUTO feature can be cancelled by actuating the switch UP or DOWN while window is in motion. Failure of the electronic switch to detect an amperage spike will cause the switch to disconnect after approximately 11 seconds.
