Symptoms. C5 2.2 HDI 51 plate. Window works fine as per normal, but.
When I shut the drivers electric window, it Auto opens immediately to approx 4″ open. I can shut it if I let it go up and stop it perhaps a mm or 2 before finally shut, then shut it.

I guess this is some sensor to protect you from trapped fingers. but, can I adjust it or do I have to live with it. Any clues out there?

I might stick it on the lexia this weekend and see what comes up.

Hi Moose, does that reset the «closed» point?

Its been fine on Auto shut (or whatever the terminology is) up until the last month or so. Now I’m just getting P*ssed off with taking care every time I shut the window.

I’ll give it a go when I get out of work at lunchtime.

Happend on me a while ago on a Peugeot with auto shut and BSI. I just open the window all the way down and up again MANUALY then it was fine. Same on my Beemer.

The sensors resets.

Mine were a bit wonky yesterday. I had had the exhaust (cat) welded for the MOT and they must have done it in situ and disconnected the battery.

Opening then closing them manually and holding the button down for five seconds at the end of each travel limit fixed them.

Resetting the info screen from German took a bit longer.

Engine management lit came on about fifty miles out from Cambridge and I assume this is related, wonder what I’ll find this morning.

MY wife is just about to pay 128 for the MOT. Including a new wiper, a new headlight bulb all of which would have taken me 5 mins and to swap the driver window console between cars, which I offered and she refused and would take 30 seconds. That last thing the garage has charged 38 quid for!

Anyway the thing is the unit which is wonky brings the window down and when you press up, it still brings the window down. As such I have to lock car and use window function on key fob to close window.

Does this sound like a faulty unit or something to do with settings. I cleaned all connection before wife, who is currently walking through 2 feet of snow is on way to pay 128 quid for MOT right this minute, in a pique of winge put car in for MOT to garage that doesn’t do MOTS.

Latin tempers! Sacre bleu!

Has the battery been off?

They are rather notorious for the windows and lights to go a bit haywire if the battery is disconnected/reconnected without following the recommended procedure.

Can you get your wife to swear at it in French, it may understand and fix itself.

You do seem to have a knack of attracting the rip off merchants. The place I use for MOTs replace odds and sods like that for the cost of the item, i.e a couple of pounds for headlight bulbs, about three pounds for wipers. My last MOT was £80 which included 2 new headlight bulbs, number plate bulbs and welding of the exhaust. The tester spent an hour ringing round for an exhaust the said «sod this, they are too expensive!» and welded it

One of the headlight bulbs blew when I started it up this evening
