2012 Volkswagen Beetle Turbo: Poltergeist Protection?

August 04, 2012

I'm experiencing an intermittent auto-up window pinch-protection malfunction. Occasionally, it believes there's something impeding the window and backs it off. The trouble with this is that after two tries, it then locks out auto-up/down and it will only motor the window either way with the partial pull/push on the button. Luckily, shutting the car off resets the system. I checked the window track for any crud, and there is none. Does anybody else have this problem?

There's a video after the jump if this doesn't make sense to you...
