Drivers side window quit working. Second time this has happened. First time it reset next time I started car, this time no such luck. This message appers in the DIC. Anybody else have this problem?

I have not seen that before. I guess I know where you'll be headed soon. Good thing you got a picture of the error message since this is the type of thing they like to ignore.

Just curious...has your car been exposed to a lot of rain these past few months? (Obviously with the windows up.) About five of us have had a locks issue which I believe to be moisture-related, and someone else has proven out. If I had to guess, I'd say this same thing is happening to you, just a different symptom.

Our TourX is always garaged. Only in the rain if we get caught in it.

That message usually pops up when the window needs to be recalibrated again for the auto up/down.

Does your switch just not work?

Might have a loose connection on that switch.

Window finally fixed. They had to replace the regulator. Cause - "Internal failure of the motor"
Good to hear! How much time was spent actually waiting for the part?

I knew there was a reason I liked non power windows, other then being old school and cheap.
PS And the fact a few weeks ago the 99 TA`s drivers side window stopped working... Been in denial about it, hoping next time it will work. After all vehicle with 14k miles should act like new, not just look like new.

I do not believe the window worked when I tried today.
Maybe the silent treatment works on cars.

Ugh, I had to get the regulator replaced on my back window just a few weeks after I bought it. At least it was free, but I don’t like to see this kind of defect in a brand new car.Although my last one was a Jeep, so I was used to it!

There is a lockout that can happen if the window open or closed and someone or something keeps holding the button.
It locks out the button for maybe 10 to 30 seconds before you can use it again.
It's a failsafe so the regulator doesn't burn out.

But when this happened to me there was no message on the dic.

If the window switch doesn't work after a minute or so then the regulator is burned. Hence why the OP had a new one installed under warranty.
