Expert:  mike switzer replied 6 months ago.

ok when you are rolling them up are you needing to hold the switch up or is it in the auto function?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
Have to hold it up then when it reaches the top it goes down half way or just a 1/2 inch like I'm opening the door
Expert:  mike switzer replied 6 months ago.

ok while rolling it up and holding the witch continue to hold it and count to 10. if that des not work you need to reset the system by disconnecting the battery at both ends and connecting the terminals for 10 minutes. you will still need to relearn the stop points as described first

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
I've done the hold up several times. I have never tried to disconnect the battery I will def try that. I did have a footwell module code I erased it it has not come back. When it was there it said for both driver and passenger window hallsensor power window door defect
Expert:  mike switzer replied 6 months ago.

well I did no see that in the description. since the code has not come back it may have just been a hiccup. but it may come back. I would start with the battery disconnect method first.
