If your automatic windows aren’t working properly, try this simple trick.
Sherwood Cooke Jr. and Sherwood III operate a family auto repair business called Royalty Auto Service.
Dubbed Royaltyautoservice, her TikTok is full of tips and tricks educating her nearly 16,000 followers on all things automotive.
Sherwood III recently posted a video of his father working on a car with multiple issues.
While he was repairing the vehicle, his father noticed that the power windows appeared to be malfunctioning.
He tested one of the windows to show that the automatic feature wasn’t working as it rolled both up and down.
He suggested pressing the button to roll the window all the way up and then pressing the button to roll it all the way down, but then holding the button down for 10 seconds.
Once this is complete, scroll the window all the way up and hold the button for another 10 seconds.
He reveals that after this simple operation, the window is now working properly.
Just note that this hack doesn’t work for every car, but it does for many.
More tips and tricks
Shortly after, the family posted another TikTok after receiving a comment asking about a similar window malfunction.
The question was how to fix the automatic window if it works fine until you try to close it.
On this particular car, the window would automatically roll all the way up, but then come down about four to five inches on its own.
The repair was a bit more complicated.
Sherwood Cooke Jr. had to reset the controller so the automatic reset didn’t work.
He then performed the process he mentioned in his previous video of holding the window switch both up and down for 10 seconds.
To reset the ECU there is no solution for everyone.
You can do one of two things: you can fiddle with the keys while cranking the windows up and down, or you can disconnect the battery for 10 minutes.
Just remember to disconnect the negative battery cable, not the positive.
