Default Window problem

Well I'm not too happy that my first post here had to be a problem, but here it is.

I had the battery out of my 2005 convertible. While the battery was out I opened the driver's door. Now the window moves down to about three inches from the fully down position each time I try to raise the window all the way up. I have tried to calibrate the window according to the directions in the owners manual and it will not reset. I also tried disconnecting the battery again to get the calibration to reset, but that did not work either.

Does anyone know how to get this reset?

Re-read the manual and follow it again step-by-step. If I recall, you have to have the door closed when you perform the procedure. I've never had the problem so I really can't help.

Like I said, I already tried that many times. I just had someone else try it and they got the same result.

The problem is in the motor controls that are mounted on the actual window motor.
It is replaced as a - very expensive - assembly. If you are still under warranty,
I would head to the stealership with your problem ASAP.
