Default Windows rolling down when key turned off

I have noticed something strang with my 2010 GT. If my passenger window is on it way up (in the process of closing) and I turn the ignition key off while its going up, it rolls back down to about 1/3 open. Make sense? My driver window does not do this.

That may have something to do with it thinking it may have encountered an obstacle. Have you ever tried closing the window with your arm in it? It does that very thing (and doesn't hurt your arm at all btw

Try doing the resetting of the windows from the manual.

Mine does it also, so I would not worry about it.

Hi tekzilla41,

Are you still having this concern? If so, I agree with AzPete in recalibrating your windows. The following steps are on page 78 of the owner's manual.

In order to improve door efforts and sealing, your vehicle is equipped with short drop glass. This feature lowers the glass when either door is opened. The glass returns to its closed position when the door is closed. Proper operation of the short drop glass requires that the windows be calibrated. Though your windows will have been calibrated before your vehicle is delivered to you, it is possible for the windows to lose calibration. If a window loses its calibration, your short drop feature will lower the window, but will not raise it again when the door is closed. To re-calibrate the window, pull the switch up to raise the window until it completes its travel and hold the switch up for two seconds. Another possible effect of lost calibration is that the feature may not lower the window. To re-calibrate the window in this case, lower the window until it completes its travel and hold the switch down for two seconds. Immediately after releasing the window switch, pull the switch up to raise the window until it completes its travel and hold the switch up for two seconds. Perform short drop re-calibration with doors closed only. Re-calibrating with doors open will cause the window to continuously bounce back.

Hope this helps!

Mine does it sometimes also. I avoid it by just waiting until the windows are fully up before turning off the ignition.
