    I noticed the driver-side window auto-open/close (lifting the button all the way, or pushing it all the way down) wasn't working. It was operating like the manual open/close setting where it would stop after letting go of the button. Got a tip to sit in the car with the door shut, put the window all the way down, lift and hold the button to close the window all the way, then once closed, hold the button up for another 5 seconds. It does some sort of recalibration on the window controller and seemed to fix the issue for me. Hope this helps others that run into this problem! :)

    I’ll second the thanks- just had the regulators replaced in my model 3 with mobile service (I hadn’t had issues- but apparently some recall issue with them not being fully waterproff)

    But the auto close wasn’t working- just did what you said and working like a charm

    Just discovered I had the same problem today, and the solution is the same. auto up/down wasn't working on both driver's windows but passengers worked fine. Doing this procedure got them all working. though now I've noticed strangely that the passenger front window doesn't go down as far as my driver front window ... it's like 1cm difference maybe.

    Must be the same controller they used in my ford focus. I once had to re-do all 4 doors.
