Hi all, looking
for a little advice, last week I tried to lower the drivers window, I could
hear a click but no movement, all other windows work okay.


Gave up and drove
off, got to a set of traffic lights and the drivers window went down on its
own??? Pressed the button for the window to close but no go.


Got home and
switched the engine off and decided to investigate, got some tools and went
back to the car and turned on the ignition, windows went up by themselves.


Decided to have a
fiddle and removed the door card and have a look behind the switch, not much to
see but decided to unplug the cable from the front windows switch as I was
going to work later that night and didn't want the window to open again
unexpected and would deal with it at a later date, anyway, jumped in the car to
head off to work and the window went down by itself???? Was cold and wet that
night heading to work and I wasn't best pleased but upon arrival I turned the
engine off sat for a minute then turned the engine on an lo and behold the
window went back up.<?: prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:eek:ffice:eek:ffice" />



The upshot is I
have now pulled the plug from the window motor to prevent it opening and
closing on its own.

It's obvious it
not the window switch as the window is opening and closing with the switch
disconnected, I have searched everywhere online to see if there is a relay that
I could check but nothing.

Anybody have any
ideas cos I'm stumped, or if a similar incident has happened to them?


Cheers

It will be covered under the 4 year warranty - why risk it? Just call a dealer and get it fixed forfree

I agree with IvorEtower , you've paid for the guarantee when you bought for the car , make them pay now !! Use the guarantee , please don't fiddle about with the problem or you may find the possibility of voiding the guarantee.

Take care, best wishes from Neale.

How stupid of me never thought to check if the particular problem would be covered under warranty, mmmm might have messed up that route though as to gain accees to the window motor there is some polystyrene sound proofing that is held by the strongest glue in the world, had to cut a hole through itfor access to have a look and pull the plug.
Nothing ventured nothing gained I suppose,thanks for the quick replies guys

I imagine it would have been some kind of reset required but, as you've been in there yourself.........

Hi Dozer..just tell them you had to gain access to avoid a security risk occuring, as long as you haven't tampered with the motor they should understand...they would have to get to it in the same way by damaging the foam most likely. Some of these motors have an internal power on until shut/open and the circuit is cut when the motor completes it's cycle. I know wipper motors work this way, anyway get the dealer to sort it as suggested..not worth the hassle. My Wife had similar problems with her Clio and after a couple of attempted fixes they replaced a loom, no further problem.

There is a reset procedure in the manual, section 3.13. Don't know if this would have worked or not.

I am surprised that Bol d'Or hasn't commented on your slight mishap. He generally jumps at the chance to criticize the Captur and praise his beloved Juke.

Whereas your sole contribution to this forum seems to be repeatedly saying "Mine is fine"
Well whoop dee doo.
TBH, I think you've backed yourself into a corner and would find it hard to admit if something does go wrong....

It is a little silly, I agree.
Even if there was a security issue with the window not going back up, I would think the roadside assistance would come into play and they would have to take it to a covered area.

Oh dear, sounds like the same problem that was prevalent with the Scenics. Renault eventually accepted responsibility, I'd hopped it wouldn't appear on the Captur. Hope they sort it for you.
