Power windows

The ignition switch must be in the ON position for power windows to operate.

Each door has a power window switch that controls the door's window. The driver has a power window lock button which can block the operation of passenger windows. The power windows can be operated for approximately 30 seconds after the ignition key is removed or turned to the ACC or LOCK position. However, if the front doors are opened, the power windows cannot be operated even within the 30 second period. In cold and wet climates, power windows may not work properly due to freezing conditions.

✽ NOTICE

While driving with the rear windows down or with the sunroof (if equipped) in an open (or partially open) position, your vehicle may demonstrate a wind buffeting or pulsation noise. This noise is a normal occurrence and can be reduced or eliminated by taking the following actions. If the noise occurs with one or both of the rear windows down, partially lower both front windows approximately one inch. If you experience the noise with the sunroof open, slightly reduce the size of the sunroof opening.

Window opening and closing

The driver’s door has a master power window switch that controls all the windows

The driver’s door has a master power window switch that controls all the windows in the vehicle.

To open or close a window, press down or pull up the front portion of the corresponding switch to the first detent position (5).

Auto down window (Driver’s window)

Pressing the power window switch momentarily to the second detent position (6)

Pressing the power window switch momentarily to the second detent position (6) completely lowers the driver’s window even when the switch is released. To stop the window at the desired position while the window is in operation, momentarily pull the switch in the direction opposite of the window’s movement.

Power window lock button

  • The driver can disable the power window switches on the passenger doors by pressing the power window lock button located on the driver’s door to the LOCK position (pressed).
  • When the power window lock button is in the LOCK position (pressed), the driver’s master control cannot operate the passenger door power windows.

CAUTION - Opening/ Closing window

To prevent possible damage to the power window system, do not open or close two windows or more at the same time. This will also ensure the longevity of the fuse.

WARNING - Power windows

Do not allow children to play with the power windows. Keep the driver’s door power window lock button in the LOCK position (pressed).

Always double check to make sure all arms, hands, head and other obstructions are safely out of the way before closing a window.
