Default Window wont stay closed

on my 06 9-3 aero the right front window wont stay closed. It will go all the way up and stay for a second or two then go down about 1/4 of the way and stay there.

Ive ran my finger on the window and the seal and I cant find anything blocking the window. Any other suggestions?

Thanks in advance.

rest the Pinch Protection....


Pinch Protection, around Page 100 or 130 in your manual depending on the edition ....

To reset Pinch Protection, as explained in the Manual: With the Ignition on, Raise and lower the affected window(s) twice holding the switch in the appropriate direction, on the second closing hold the switch up until you hear the ding/chime.

IF you cant get it to reset, holding the window lock button while putting the window up will bypass the pinch protection.

What? No way! If you pull the battery, you definitely have to re-set Pinch Protection on all the Windows. That uncalibrates it, it does not re-set it.
