    Do this after you replace the motor, or even unhook it or it won't work.

    Something to try before, an something that must be done after unhooking the window motor.

    Door Window Motor Initialization

    CAUTION: Make sure that no obstructions are present in the window system when carrying out this procedure.

    NOTE: The LF window motor is in proportional up/down mode until initialized.

    NOTE: The LF window motor must be reinitialized whenever: the motor is removed from window regulator drum housing, a new motor is installed, a new window regulator is installed, new window glass is installed, glass top run removal or installation, or when carrying out any operation in which grease or lubricants are applied to the window system.

    NOTE: All LF window components (window glass, window regulator, window motor and glass top run) must be installed and tightened to specification before carrying out this procedure.

    NOTE: If this procedure is only partially completed, the LF window motor will remain un-initialized and only the proportional up/down functions will operate.

    NOTE: Once the ignition key is turned to the ON position in Step 6, it must remain on until the entire procedure is completed.

    NOTE: Step 7 requires that the master control switch (LF) be held in the UP position until the LF window motor stalls the window glass into the upper header seal. Step 8 requires that the master control switch (LF) be momentarily actuated to the DOWN position.

    NOTE: Step 9 requires that the master control switch (LF) be held in the UP position until the LF window motor stalls the window glass into the upper header seal and the window carries out its down-up sequence, indicating successful completion of initialization.

    NOTE: The key-in-ignition chime can cause the AUTO button to be pressed more or less than 6 times due to the distraction of the chime.

    NOTE: Steps 1 through 6 must be completed within 30 seconds. The entire procedure must be completed within 5 minutes.


    1. Start with the ignition key in the OFF position and with the LF door open.

    2. Turn the ignition key to the ON position.

    3. Press the front window control switch (LF) to the AUTO position 6 times (AUTO up or AUTO down).

    4. Turn the ignition key to the OFF position and make sure the LF door is open.

    5. Press the front window control switch (LF) to the AUTO position 6 times (AUTO up or AUTO down).

    6. Turn the ignition key to the ON position and close the LF door. The LF window glass will move down-up-down-up approximately 2-3 mm (0.1 in). This down-up-down-up movement indicates that the LF window motor has entered initialization mode.
    Pull and hold the front window control switch (LF) to the UP position until the window glass stalls into the upper header seal.

    7. Momentarily press the front window control switch (LF) to the DOWN position and release. The window will carry out a one-touch down operation until the window glass stalls at the bottom of travel stop designed into the window regulator.

    8. Pull and hold the front window control switch (LF) to the UP position. Continue to hold the switch until after the window glass stalls into the upper header seal and carries out the down-up movement. This down-up movement approximately 2-3 mm (0.1 in.) indicates that the LF window motor has been successfully initialized.

    9. Verify correct operation of the LF window by carrying out a one-touch down, one-touch up, proportional down, and proportional up. If the window does not operate correctly, carefully repeat this procedure.
