✽ NOTICE

In cold and wet climates, power windows may not work properly due to freezing conditions.

The ignition switch must be in the ON position for power windows to operate. Each door has a power window switch that controls the doors window. However, the driver has a power window lock switch which can block the operation of passenger windows.

The power windows can be operated for approximately 30 seconds after the ignition key is removed or turned to the ACC or LOCK position. However, if the front doors are opened, the power windows cannot be operated even within the 30 seconds after the ignition key removal. While driving, if you notice buffeting and pulsation (wind shock) with either side window open, you should open the opposite window slightly to reduce the condition.

CAUTION CAUTION

  • To prevent the power window system from the possibility of damage, do not open or close two windows at the same time. This will also ensure the longevity of the fuse.
  • Never try to operate the main switch on the driver's door and the individual door window switch in opposing directions at the same time. If this is done, the window will stop and cannot be opened or closed.

WARNING - Windows WARNING - Windows

  • Always double check to make sure all arms, hands, head and other obstructions are safely out of the way before closing a window.
  • Do not allow children to play with the power windows. Keep the drivers door power window lock switch in the LOCK position (depressed). Serious injury can result from unintentional window operation by the child.
  • Do not extend face or arms outside through the window opening while driving.

Window opening and closing

The drivers door has a master power window switch that controls all the windows in the vehicle.

To open or close a window, press down or pull up the front portion of the corresponding switch to the first detent position (5).

Auto down window (if equipped) (drivers window)

Depressing the power window switch momentarily to the second detent position (6) completely lowers the drivers window even when the switch is released. To stop the window at the desired position while the window is in operation, pull up the switch momentarily to the opposite direction of the window movement.

Auto up/down window (if equipped) (Driver's window)

Depressing or pulling up the power window switch momentarily to the second detent position (6) completely lowers or lifts the window even when the switch is released. To stop the window at the desired position while the window is in operation, pull up or depress and release the switch to the opposite direction of the movement.

If the power window is not operating correctly, the automatic power window system must be reset as follows:

1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position.

2. Close drivers window and continue pulling up on drivers power window switch for at least 1 second after the window is completely closed.

Automatic reversal

If the upward movement of the drivers window is blocked by an object or part of the body, the window will detect the resistance and will stop upward movement. The window will then lower approximately 12 in. (30 cm) to allow the object to be cleared.

If the window detects resistance while the power window switch is pulled up continuously, the window will stop upward movement then lower approximately 1in. (2.5cm). If the power window switch is pulled up continuously again within 5 seconds after the window is lowered by the automatic window reversal feature, the automatic window reversal will not operate.

WARNING WARNING

  • The automatic reverse feature for the drivers window is only active when the auto up feature is used by fully pulling up the switch. The automatic reverse feature will not operate if the window is raised using the halfway position on the power window switch.
  • Always check for obstructions before raising any window to avoid injuries or vehicle damage. If an object less than 0.16 in. (4 mm) in diameter is caught between the window glass and the upper window channel, the automatic reverse window may not detect the resistance and will not stop and reverse direction.
  • Passengers can be injured if their head, hands or other body parts are trapped by a closing window. Always check for obstructions before raising any window.
  • NEVER leave the ignition key in the vehicle.
  • NEVER leave any child unattended in the vehicle. Even very young children may inadvertently cause the vehicle to move, entangle themselves in the windows, or otherwise injure themselves or others.
