I'm having a problem with the "auto up" on my front passenger's side window. It works fine on "auto down". Nice and smooth.

On "auto up", the window will go halfway up and then the "pinch" control will stop the window and drop it about 2-3 inches. I can hear the motor straining just before then. Pulling up on the window when the motor was straining didn't help any. No other unusual noise except the motor straining when window is halfway up.

After the "pinch" control activates, I can raise the window all the way up if I toggle the window switch on and off.

I have lubricated all the moving parts that I can see. I also applied silicone spray to the window seals with little improvement.

Any insight or suggestions will be greatly appreciated.

Have you tried re-synching the window ?

You could remove the fuse for the Door Control Module, wait for a few minutes and re-install fuse. Then re-synch. Or you could remove the negative battery terminal and then reconnect, and the re-synch for all windows. seats , etc.

Also, does your Keyfob IR convenience auto up all windows feature work (pressing and holding lock button with key fob IR tip close to the door handle)?

Never mind.................it fixed itself :)

Actually the problem started when I was resyncing the windows after I had to replace a 2 months old Everstart Platinum AGM battery.

The key was the motor straining. Don't know why it didn't help any when I pulled up on the window on its way up.

Anyhow..........I reclean and treated the window seals with Aerospace 303 and everything seems to be fine now. Fingers crossed.
