Acura Electric Window One Touch Control

This tip outlines the procedure to restore one touch control to the electric windows on your Acura following the disconnection of your car battery.

You can resolve this by following this very simple procedure to reset the one touch control feature and get it operating again thereby saving you a trip to the dealer!

1) Start the engine and then push down on the drivers window switch until the window is fully open.

2) Pull up the drivers window switch until the window closes fully but keep holding the switch for at least 2 seconds after it closes.

3) Auto function should now be restored. Lower and raise the window to check the one touch control.

Hope this tip has helped. Please do leave a vote for it. Many thanks.

well my battery of my mustang wint down and i had to chage the battery and my drivers window when it goes up it bouces bacj down to a 1/5 down and i want to know how to restore it.

NOTICE: Make sure no obstructions are present in the window system when carrying out this procedure.
NOTE: A battery disconnect does not require this procedure to be carried out unless the battery was disconnected while the window was operating.
NOTE: Excessive bounce-back (bounce-back that occurs with no obstructions present) may indicate a non-initialized window motor.
NOTE: Carry-out the de-initialization of the motor before initializing the motor.
NOTE: The motor will only operate in the 9-16 volt range. If the voltage drops below 9 volts, the window will not function correctly or may stop moving. If the voltage drops below 9 volts while the motor is operating, the motor will become de-initialized and will need to be initialized.
NOTE: The front window motors must be initialized whenever: a new window regulator and motor is installed, a new window glass is installed, a glass top run removal and installation or when carrying out any operation in which grease or lubricants are applied to the window system. A new front window motor is in a proportional up/down mode until initialized.
NOTE: The convertible rear window motors do NOT need to be initialized as they do not have one-touch up or one-touch down functions.
NOTE: All front window components (window glass, window regulator, window motor and glass top run) must be installed/tightened and adjusted to specification before carrying out this procedure.
NOTE: If this procedure is only partially completed, the front window motor remains non-initialized and only the proportional up/down functions operate. A non-initialized window motor may allow one-touch down operation, but does NOT allow one-touch up operation.

De-initialization then re-initialization

The motor can be de-initialized in 2 ways:

Disconnect the battery cable from the battery while the window is operating.

Remove the window motor fuse while the window is operating.

After the motor has been de-initialized, the initialization procedure must be carried out.

Make sure there are no obstructions present in the window system when carrying out this procedure. The door MUST be closed during this procedure (for convertibles, the top and quarter glass must be in the closed and up position), in order for the door window motor to initialize.

The windows must be in the full open position for this procedure to operate correctly.

Press and hold the window control switch in the UP position at the second detent until the window glass stalls into the glass top run for at least 2 seconds.

Once the top run is reached, hold the window control switch in the DOWN position at the second detent until the window glass stalls at the bottom of its travel for at least 2 seconds.

Cycle the window glass an additional 5 times to set the window soft stop for the down position.

Test for correct window operation by carrying one-touch up feature.

Good luck, if for any reason you can't give four thumbs up, please ask for more information. Thanks!

how do i replace the car battery on a saturn sl1 1993


The battery is under the hood and for a full breakdown on the procedure please view this FixYa Tip.

The Saturn battery is held in with a tie down and you will need a 3/8 socket to release it from the car once you have followed the procedure as outlined.

Thanks for using FixYa.
