I got my bronco on Tuesday and its been amazing. Tonight, the drivers window decided it doesn’t want to go all the way up with one touch but it will go up holding the button. It also will not drop down when opening the door so it doesn’t seal up properly. I am thinking I might disconnect the battery to see if that helps but I am afraid it might need a trip to the dealer

There's usually a window re-set procedure for these windows. I can't recall what it is, but my Audi had it as well. Should fix your issue. Just Google "Ford window relearn process."

try getting in, start as usual.
roll window full down
then hold the button down for like 5 seconds.
roll window up
hold button up for 5 seconds
see if auto up down and auto drop are resumed......


seems like it lost initialization somehow

Worked like a charm! Big thank you because I was worried.

I’ve had the opportunity to open/close several different pre-production Broncos recently. Overland Expo West & Bronco Super Cell. IMPO all of them were not functioning properly. The drop down speed when opening the door was not sufficient & if opened and closed several times the windows kinda became confused and behaved inconsistently.

Good luck, I hope the reset suggested above is helpful.

No problem. I would have been worried too! Glad it was a simple fix :)

ive noticed that mine (delivered Tuesday) that they move pretty quick, no catching or issues. I think they’ve sped them up.

Unrelated, but did you know holding the unlock button on the fob for 5 seconds drops all 4 windows? They don’t go back up, but it’s handy to air it out on a hot day before you get in.

My passenger side front is the worst... The drivers side does ok. The dealership said they updated it, and an OTA update showed up on my ford pass... But nothing changed. The window drops upon door opening are still slow. I guess I'll bug them again later. Lol
