Just taken ownership of an Alfa GT JTD, absolutely pleased with it. I have one issue with the passenger window. It lowers fine, but when I try to close it, it dosen't close as one single operation. It basically moves up a few inches at a time, so I have to continuously have to operate the electric window button to completely close the window. I am not sure whether there is too much resistance in the seals which is preventing a single continuous action for window closure. Anyone got any ideas? Would a reset do the trick. I read that you can reset the windows by pressing the button down for 10 seconds and then another 10 seconds when the window is shut.

Hi Guy,

Depends on the year / software version.

My 2006 GT had auto down and up on the passenger side but my 2008 doesn't, only auto down. Something about health & safety I believe.

Your manual should make reference to which it should be.

Hi,

Do the soft reset.

1. Put the window down and hold the button down for 10 seconds.
2. Put the window up (even in small increments if required) and hold the button up for 10 seconds.
3. Might have to try it a few times.

Good luck!

Great!

I have to do this about once a month, depending on how much I use the windows. This is not a permanent fix I'm afraid but does work temporarily. :)

2006 gt

I have a 2006 GT and also have a problem with the passenger side window, slightly different as mine stops lowering when you open the door. If you carry out the soft reset it works ok for a few times but then reverts back to not lowering when you open the door. Has anyone else had this problem or knows of a permanent fix. Thanks

As a permanent fix, your window nodes may need to be replaced

The soft reset, in full:

Drivers side, down and hold for ten seconds.
Passenger side down and hold for ten seconds.

Passenger side up and hold for ten.
Drivers side up and hold for ten.


BTW, its not only an Alfa thing. It works on loads of other cars as well. :byebye:
