Help with adjusting Window Auto Rolldown Sensor for 01 QX4

Postby Empty V » Tue Mar 11, 2008 9:58 am

Hey everyone I've had this problem with my QX4 for some time now. On my front passenger side window the auto roll down sensor is set a little to sensitive. If I use the auto roll up it senses that there is an obstruction in it's path and after rolling up all the way it rolls back down partially. Does anyone know how to adjust this?

Thanks!

Billy

Yes.

Do a search on this subject. I had this problem last year, and the fix is easy (about 1 minute if you have the panels off the door), but it's hard to explain in writing. I believe the last thread was about 6 months ago.I'm not good with searching or creating links, but the answer is out there.Good luck.

thanks Buzzman, I simplified my search and immediately found a few threads on this topic. Sounds pretty simple to do. now I just hope I haven't covered the reset switch with dynamat.

Well I just fixed it, I can't believe that dealers charge $100 to do that. I had to pull the door panel off because I did have a strip of dynamat right on top of it but even with that it only took me about 7min.

Thanks for the help!

I'm outside looking at the inside of the window switch compartment and I can't find that switch that this post is referring to Does anyone know where I would have to look or what it looks like? I have a 01 QX4 Thanks Is it on the switch pack or is it on the door somewhere?

Hi.

It's not on the switch array or the armrest.It's on the door under the switch pack.It's also not really a switch. It's more like a little black button. Press and release type of thing, sort of like the dome light buttons in the door jams.You can easily mistake it for a screw head, it's that small.On my '02 Pathfinder, it's right under the switch pad. I didn't even have to remove any door panels.I just popped the switch array.Hope this helps.

+1 Great description. It's a "momentary" switch.

Check the "how to" sticky's at the top.
It's in there in great detail.
Once you've done it, you'll see how easy it really was.
5 minutes, tops.

Plus one on the link, only my passenger window is doing this right now but the switch is under only the drivers side switch panel correct? Now I just need to find out the easiest safest way to take off that switch panel without damaging it lol

Use a cloth-covered flathead screwdriver, it just pops out.

No, each front window has its own hidden switch. My 01 passenger side was doing this and I reset the switch under the passenger switch panel. Easiest way is to use plastic/teflon pry tools to take it off, or a very this but wide screw driver covered in terry cloth or something to make sure you dont marr the plastic.

The button on the passenger side was not just right there when you pop the switch panel off either, its kinda hard to find and I remember it being low on the inside door panel and hard to reach to press

Here are some tips for window limit reset on 2003 Qx4 as the instructions above did not work.

First do not remove the woodgrain piece around the switch because you will break all the little plastic clips that hold it on. It is the piece under the woodgrain piece which will easily pop off if you gently pry it up from the rear edge. Then you can locate the reset button which is down behind some clear plastic sheet, and looks like a little black button.

Make sure the window is closed (up) completely. Turn the ignition on so the windows are receiving power.
a) Press the reset switch (and keep it pressed in) and open (down) the window completely (manually -NOT with AUTO ONE TOUCH DOWN FUNCTION).
b) Release the reset switch.
c) Then close the window completely (manually only – NOT AUTO UP). Do not press reset switch going up.
d) The limit switch is now reset.

I've had this problem for years now. This fix took 3 minutes to apply. Wish I found this site earlier. Great stuff all.

Yea, it's a cool fix, which the dealership will charge you $80 for, if you're lucky.
If you're not, they'll try and sell you a new motor and anything else they can think of. I've seen it happen.
I find this problem comes back about once a year, and I do the reset each time. Quick and easy.
