Intermittent Auto Window Up Rejection

Occasionally I will auto roll my window up and it will reject and send back down... this even occurs occasionally when I send it up by holding the switch.

I have tried holding switch up from zero to closed and holding switch for 3+ seconds then holding from closed to zero for 3+ seconds etc multiple times.

I know with Mercedes this was how we “programmed” the position Of window and sensors associated.

Am I missing something? Anyone have a permanent solution for this?

So the sequence is different but essentially same general method as what I was trying to perform previously.... for the ford it’s:

hold the roll down until completely zero then briefly release and then hold the switch again in down position for 5 seconds - roll up window holding switch until completely up and briefly release switch and then reapply switch up holding for 5 seconds. Perform cycle 2x (this is my own input for 2x, don’t know if necessary)

after thinking more about it my windows only started acting funny after battery unplugged.... this all makes sense now.

Mine does it periodically. I have to click it lil bit at a time. Up. Up. Up. Up. Up. Up. Then when its about 65 to 70% of the way it will go the rest just fine. Iv never tried reprogramming. I will next time.

Okay so I didn’t even make it a month 😂 Reprogramming it did absolutely nothing. Seems there are others with this issue as well though... what’s the solution?

Maybe the windows are getting enough pressure from the track to make it think there is an obstruction??
I have tried pulling up by hand on the window and it still went back down on it's own. I was told it could be a low battery indicator but mine has done in with a brand new one.

If it were a low or dying batfery it would go slow or just stop dead. I wonder if its a bad ground? Just enough that it thinks the button got hit again and rolls down?

Thinking more along the lines of a bad window position sensor... if it can be programmed then it should have one to locate the elevation of the window. I’ll have to look into how these function...
