Unhappy Power Windows Misbehaving

I have a 2012 V6 Premium converible with about 2000 miles. When I raise either the driver or the passenger window, once it gets to the top, it automatically lowers all the way back down. The Ford dealer where I bought the car has had it in the shop three times, one week at a time, and proclaimed it fixed. Before I get it out of the parking lot, the windows are doing it again. Since the dealer is clueless, does anyone on the forum have an idea of what the problem is?

I know that the 05-10's have a window calibration procedure in the OM. Have you looked there?

To reset them on 2005-2010's (should still be the same for you.) I have an issue sometimes where they won't auto up or auto down. From the all the way up position you hold down the switch until they hit the bottom and hold for about 5-10 seconds. Then release and hold up for about 5-10 seconds, always seems to correct the issues I have occasionally.

You must do this with the doors closed...

1. Turn ignition key to where gauges light up but car doesn't start.
2. Push both windows (driver and passenger) down and hold for six seconds.
3. Pull both window switches up to close and hold up for six seconds.
4. Repeat step two.
5. Repeat step three.
6. Turn off ignition.
7. Start car.
8. Turn off car and the windows should operate properly again.

Hey 157db, I can do this while my car is fully started and even when it is moving and it works fine. For some reason I have to do it about twice a month though, is that normal?

My thoughts about that happening that frequently is that you have a low voltage issue that's causing the window electronics to lose calibration but I'm just guessing. And 157db WOULD know better about our electronics so I'll also wait to hear what he says.

Thats not normal. I have only done it once since 2007 and
that was just for grins and giggles.
I would suggest either low battery voltage or you disconnect
your battery about twice a month for mods...

The Power Window brains are on the actual window motors
in the doors. If something is wrong, its going to be there.
And the problem should not be shared by both sides as
the electronics are separate for each window mechanism.
If it is shared, its a power problem, not an electronic problem.

My guess in #7 may be correct. I need 8 hours of sleep...
