That's normal as it seems to happen a lot of the time when the power is removed from the car. To reset, roll the window down part way, then roll the window back up all of the way and hold the window switch in the up position for a few seconds. After that, it should work just fine.

And if that doesn't do the trick .. stick your left thumb in your mouth and your right thumb in your left ear. Wiggle the fingers of your right hand as you blow real hard into your left thumb!

Where did they come up with these off the wall sequences to reset things??? LOL

I does seem odd sometimes but the system has to learn the Motor amp draw and where the window is after a complete power failure sometimes.

I was told to wind it all the way down and then all the way back up holding the button down and then up for the count of 3 after the window had finished its move.
much more sensible than a Renault I had years ago. Had to lower all windows and then raise then one by one In a set order. Mental.

LOL, I'm from the UK and learned to drive in my dad's Renault.

Lower it half way, then finish lowering it. Now close it.
