Random Window Issues

About 50% of the time, my window(s) will stop rolling up and start rolling down. I can't seem to recreate the issue on demand but it happens often enough that I now keep my finders ready to intercept the window on the down to right it back up.

Has anyone else come across this?

Recalibrate your window.


search for “calibrate window”

For what it’s worth, I had this issue on my Model 3 and calibrating did not fix it. Mobile service came out, he said it’s a common issue involving a trim piece that comes loose inside the door which triggers the pinch protection. He resolved it. Not sure if Y is affected by anything similar.

I have this problem and can recreate it consistently. It happens when I go over a bump while the window is in upward motion. For example, it just so happens that there’s a natural “speed bump” across the end of my driveway. When approaching home, I’ll stop and get the mail from my roadside mailbox. As I pull away from the mailbox and start turning into the driveway, the window is on the way up. As soon as I hit the bump, the window retreats. Every single time. Now that I know what to look for I can recreate it on many other bumps. Perhaps it’s an obstruction-sensor calibration issue. Window recalibration procedure has no effect on symptoms.
