Window in closed position after opening passenger door


Sep 7, 2020
Hoping someone can blow me with my problem. When I open my door (rear passenger side) the window slides down - as it should. However I soon as I let the handle go (outside) or the button inside the window slides back up. If I press the button again (inside), as long as I hold it the window stays in the lowered position. Same for the handle: if I hold the handle again the window stays in the lowered position, so I can close the door and push it in all the way.
I can’t just close the door because it would hit the frame.
Any suggestion would be appreciated. Thank you.
I had the same issue. Calibration didn't help. Mobile service came out and fixed... the issue was the puddle lamp on the bottom of the door had a flakey connection and needed to be replaced. It turns out that lamp is wired in series with the door open circuit. The tech found and fixed this so quickly that I assume there has been a known problem. Maybe a batch of puddle lamps were defective or installed incorrectly.
