    Window shifting when opening/closing doors while covered in ice.

    Since winter weather will be here soon enough, I thought I would ask about how ice will impact the windows on this car? As we all know, when you open/close the door the window slightly goes up & down. So my question is if you manage to get enough freezing rain accumulated on your door to prevent the window from going down slightly, can this mess up any component of your window? Obviously people should scrape their windows completely before opening, but nevertheless I thought I would ask. Next, is there anyway to disable this window function?

    I dont think you should go to the extent of disabling the window function. If ice is visable just then take out the ice scraper, It only take 30 seconds.

    Unless its freezing rain the window should not freeze up. I don`t see the ice being that healthy for the window but it will be a rare occurrence. Ive heard of people using oil to prevent it though I haven`t tried myself.

    My window just froze up while parked in the garage (45-50 degrees). Went to open the door and it opened but the window lights on the switch are blinking, and it stayed down slightly. Hit the button to bring it up and nothing so messing with the button some more and it went down all the way and won't go back up. Still blinking. Any ideas? It did this a few days ago too while in a parking lot (cold but no visible ice).

    check owners manual for how to reset window, it senses when it may be stuck and stops the auto feature to prevent damage, you must reset it when it does that. really easy

    Just hold the window down for like 15 seconds, then should work properly. I had the same thing happen. And with the windows moving when iced up, I had that happen to me already as well. The rain built up below the seal so no, using a scraper was not possible, but all that happens is your window stays in the up position, everything works fine. I remember reading that there is a way to even turn off the automatic drop of your window when opening doors. Don't know if that has a future impact on the door seal though as it rubs when opening.

    Yep you have to reset the window if it doesn't stay up when you hit Auto-Up, Common problem.
