Cool Just discovered the "auto up" window feature

While searching the owner's manual for info on the driver display, I discovered that (some?) Renegades have an "auto up" feature for the window. I've had multiple vehicles with the one-touch down feature but have never seen the "up" feature.

When raising the window, you lift and hold the window "up" button for a moment and the window rolls all the way back up on it's own. I tried it and it works! It's also supposed to have an "anti finger pinch" feature where the window will go back down if it hits an obstacle but I didn't try that yet.

Cool

Yes, and it works opposite the way my old Honda did. You hold it on to make it automatic, whereas the Honda would be automatic with just a blip.

Yes so not sure if this is on all the models, by my Trailhawk has the auto down for all 4 windows and then auto up for the front 2. I love it!

Try a window reset.
Normally it's for frameless door windows
but could work for this.


Normally something like:

Ignition in MAR.
Hold window switch down. Continue holding switch down for 10(?) seconds after window is fully open.
Pull window switch up and continue holding 10 seconds after window fully closed.


Could also be vice-versa .
Check out google for Fiat/Alfa reset proceedures.

That is correct, except you only have to hold the switch in the down position for 3-4 seconds once the window is all the way down and then hold in the up position for 3-4 seconds once the widow is completely up.



I never had a problem with my 2018 Renegade, but had to do a reset several times on my 2009 Dodge Durango.

Yeah, our Explorer and Range Rover have a second detent in the switch. Halfway just goes up or down until you let go, and all the way goes until it's fully open or closed. The way the Renegade is was probably for cost cutting, but it makes sense the way that it works, imo.
