2011 Infiniti M56: Automatic Window Switch Malfunction

October 28, 2011

Here's something that's never happened to me before: The Infiniti M56's one-touch automatic down/up power window system stopped operating properly. I noticed this yesterday as I was leaving the Edmunds parking garage. I hit the power window switch once to roll down the window to flash my parking pass at the gate, and that worked just fine, but when I hit the window switch once to power the window back up, the window only moved a small amount.

Hmm...that's weird.

After fiddling with all the switches when I got home, it was obvious the one-touch power-up function wasn't working on any of the windows.

A consultation with the owner's manual revealed that there is in fact a power window automatic function initialization/reset process. Here it is:

You have to perform the reset at all four windows, but otherwise the process is simple. And the important thing is it worked and we now have our automatic power-up function back.
