Bit odd, my s40 has been only putting down the front 2 and 1 of the rears, it alternates every time, and when I release and hold again they all go down...<br>any ideas?

Re: Only 3 windows go down when open key is held... (chromecarz00)

Mine does the same thing periodically. It's way down on the list of things I feel need to be fixed on my car... Maybe it has something to do with the software that tells the car to roll them down?

Have you ever had your door harnesses replaced per the recent TNN about odd door, window, and lock failures? May be related. I didnt even know they did this lol <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0">

For a week now, when I lock my car (all windows up) I'll come back to my car in ~1 hour later and the back to windows have rolled themselves down... wtf??? One night I got home, locked my car, went outside and checked em an hour later and they were still up. The next morning I went outside and they were down. ERRRRRR! <p>What to do? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0">

Re: (s40boy)

Take the car in to the dealer and have them scan it for codes. If you have numerous DDM, PDM, and CEM door lock/window function codes stored you need the door harnesses replaced. There is a TNN regarding this and ive done countless and all have been fixed once the ****ty old door harnesses are replaced.<p>Oh and ive tried this as well with no success. Unlocking and holding the second time as you have mentioned. Sure you dont have some strange features i dont know about lol. Ive never heard of and S40 doing this until you mentioned it haha <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/eek.gif" BORDER="0">

Tech Net Note now called technical journals. Basically just diagnostic tips that volvo issues when more than one case has been opened regarding the issue. These are not recalls as recalls are mandated by federal law.

should be covered under warranty. I just got my harnesses replaced during the last service. So far my windows and locks are working properly.

Re: (s40boy)

Hopefully its under warranty. The book time on it for warranty is like 3.8 hours and usually takes me bout that too so i can only imagine customer pay time would be a bit more than that.

Re: (AutoGeek)

Hmmm, wonder if this feature is only on certain packages. Mines pretty basic and doesnt seem to have this feature.

Sorry about the OT.<p>I once had the similiar problem as OP, rolled down and up the window manually and it has worked since.

I dont have a sunroof either and it works. I think my S40 is as basic as they come. It takes a while holding the button down for them to go down/up...I push it pnce and hold it down the sencond time
