auto window up - TOO SENSITIVE

ive seen threads on this before but i thought i would re visit the issue... i have an '06 WK... when i auto roll up the windows sometimes when they come to the top they roll back down half way automatically its really really frustrating... people have said its a computer issue and some have even changed their window motors, but i havent seen anyone actually find a good solid fix for this.

anyone have similar issues that have been RESOLVED

Re: auto window up - TOO SENSITIVE

Do you have two layers of window tint? If so, you might want to consider stripping it and readding only one layer. If you currently only have one layer, then maybe you could talk to window tinters and see if there's a thinner tint that could be applied to help resolve your issue.... assuming you have any tint at all.

Re: auto window up - TOO SENSITIVE

It does it on mine too, and i have no tints on the front (cops are psycho here about tinting)... i have no fix but i just figured id let you know your not alone. sometimes my passenger one wont even role up automatically unless i restart the car. i just sort of deal with it and click the button twice when it happens

Re: auto window up - TOO SENSITIVE

There is TSB for this:
TSB 23-001-08A http://wkjeeps.com/tsb/tsb_wk_2300108a.pdf

If you can't reprogram the window modules then you need to replace both front window regulators and modules. I'm hoping that I can get this done on my 30,000 mile service under my extended warranty.

Re: auto window up - TOO SENSITIVE

They're going to charge you parts and labor just like they would to fix anything else. There is no discount for problems that have a TSB vs. those that don't.
