Hello everyone,

I am in the process of fixing up a 620 Ti Lux '96 and I had to remove the inner door to fix the driver's window (classic on the 620 xD). So I disconnected the battery. Unfortunately, now the Auto function no longer works and I don't know the procedure for the reset on the 600. Could someone enlighten me?

Thank you for your answers :)

There is no any procedure for resseting. Auto function not working most probably means you will need to dismantle windows switches box and clean the connecfors since they become dirty and clogged with dirt accumulating in them.

Thanks for the answer!

I'll try that but i didn't understand how was i supposed to dismantle it.

In fact I had another problem at the beginning: with the original switches the driver's window went down but did not go up and the passenger was fine. So I swapped with a 620 Si switch and it's the opposite. The driver's window works well (without auto mode) but the passenger window has a lot of trouble going up.

Almost same problems on my 2 previous R600

Thank you so much I will read this carefully!

What intrigues me is that the switch worked very well for all the windows in the old 620 Si but the passenger window doesn't work in the Ti so its a problem specific to the car?

I also noticed that the passenger window that doesn't go up goes up more easily when the engine is started.

Switches have contacts. Contacts are essential to makemcurrent flow. If engine is not started then whole power for bringing up the windows come solely from car battery. If contacts are not good and they are dirty, that produceses high resistance on the switch which will need more current to create same power. Your car battery mightmnot be up to that job. When engine is running thenmalternator produce power needed for switch to work even if it is dirty.
No, there is no difference between Si or ti. If you have problem with one window and with same switch on the other car you do not, then you might have problems with either motor on that window (not likely), or plastic rollers which moves on window mesh. Rollers are plastic and might be on its way out, thus producingmresistance they should not.
