I tried to put my driver side window down yesterday and clicked in the Auto down function. Well... the window was frozen shut and the mechanism kept trying to put it down. I pulled up on the window controls, but it was still trying to go down. Anyway, the auto function won, the window broke the ice and went all the down. However, now the window works but the Auto function is busted. I checked the fuses but they are all good. I made an appointment to take it to the dealer on Friday. I just want to know if anybody has any idea of what might be wrong and how to fix the problem? I want to be prepared for when I get the diagnosis from the dealer.

Sorry for the double post, I just want to clarify another concern. Mainly I just don't want to hear that this problem won't be covered under warranty due to my installation of a subwoofer. I know these two items are pretty much unrelated but I want to be prepared for the worst case scenario. Does anybody know how to defend myself from this if the diagnosis is that the window worked prior to my installing a sub and therefore it is not covered under warranty?

Thanks. It helps a lot. Now I have a concrete defense if the dealer tries to be a prick about fixing the window. I am printing out your reply and bringing it with me.

Just an update. It turns out that the Auto function of the Driver Window has an automatic cutoff. If it shuts down it must be reset by lowering the window all the way and then closing it all the way and holding the button up for a couple of seconds while the engine is running. I did this and it fixed my problem, so I cancelled the trip to the dealer. Hope this helps anybody that runs across a similar problem.

I was on a mission to find out what the hell was wrong with my window. I had a feeling that it was just something really minor because the window still worked. I read through the manual in the Power Windows section and came across the info. Previously I was only looking at the fuse section.

I am glad to have remedied this before taking it to the dealer because they probably would have taken apart my door and who knows what they would have diagnosed the problem to be. What is surprising to me is that after explaining to the service guy over the phone the problem he said they would have to examine the car to see what was wrong with it, he had no idea of the simple reset. Aren't they supposed to be Acura experts?!

I am sorry to hear about you're rear window Agent Chen, I have no idea what could cause something like that.

I have already printed that post and have it on file ready and waiting for any dealer that wants to be difficult. Thanks again.
