Window problem

On my way to work this morning, my rear passenger window went down by itself. Didn't go up till 30 min. later on the freeway. Anybody experience the same and what is it?

Has it rained recently? You may have water in the door jam connectors. Separate the connectors and see if any water comes out, if so, dry them out, clean contacts if corroded and use dielectric grease in the connections. Do both the drivers door and the rear door on which it happened.

Hello. Yes, I had this problem. See previous posts. After months of turning off/on the car to get the window up and placing a penny underneath the switch to avoid the window being let down accidentally, I watched a YouTube video that showed me how to install a new main switch on the driver side. I purchased the part on Rock Auto ($54) and installed it myself. Works great. No problems with the window since. Other problems with the car? Too numerous to mention here.

If it's a Gen 1, you can take the drivers switch apart and clean it.

So if it goes down due to a faulty switch, I assume that the motor overheats then resets and that is the reason that it will not go back up for 30 minutes, makes sense.
