all of you most likely have failing door switches. I am replacing the switches on my 1995 F150 with the same symptoms. The first warning you get is intermittent functioning, and they seem to quit working when it is pouring rain, a billion below zero, or you are in the drive through at McDonalds. I have considerable experience with electric window lifts starting with cars from the late 1950's. I am here to tell you they sure don't build them like they used to. In the older systems it was wiring that was the trouble area, motor lifts, and switching where pretty much bullet proof, now it is mostly switches. Thankfully the switches are real cheap which I suppose is part of the problem.

Mine does this on the driver window every once in a while-- same exact symptoms. It has happened about 4 or 5 times in the ~6 months that I've owned it.

Unfortunately I live an hour from my dealer and my work schedule is really hectic so there's no way I'd ever be able to get it to them in time. Not to mention sometimes the window will start working after driving the truck for a while (if I don't restart it sooner, which always fixes it too).

It worked this time.

Didn't think much about it and was about to cancel my appointment, but thought I would ask my buddy if he had any issues with his 2011 F150 power windows. He said yes actually he has had his windows not work a few times, but it was mostly the passenger side window. Said that when he turned his off and then started it back up the windows would always work. Sounds just like mine, but a different window.

So, I go into the dealer this morning and already knew what they were going to say. "If we can't replicate the problem then we have no where to start trying to diagnosis the problem." I understand that and will just take it back when it does it the next time and not turn the truck off.

Just trying to see if anyone else has had this happen to them. There has to be something that is not right, or it wouldn't do the same thing in other trucks.

Your window seal is freezing to the glass overnight in cold damp weather. Some deicer would help probably.

This is definately NOT what is happening. It seems like the window is losing power, either through a relay or more probable a bad window switch. I think the master switch may be the culprit...

I have the same problem usually on the passenger side and a couple times on drivers side. When I toggle the switch I can hear a click in the passenger door but window does not go down. Restart the truck and all is good, it needs to go in. 2011 fx4 screw. BTW this happens in the summer and 30F

If you stop and think about it is the drivers side window switches that get the most use, and therefore are the ones that will start to wear out first. Bigdave when it does this clicking I would take the door panel off and inspect what is there without restarting the truck hit the switch to see where the click is coming from. Remember if the truck is not running your battery supplies 12.5 VDC to the vehicle, with it running the voltage is 13.8 VDC even this small a voltage drop in a DC circuit can mean the difference between something working and not if the part is going bad.

I don't have this problem BUT the other day when I was driving....it was about 5-8 degrees F outside and my window kept reversing like it is supposed to do when something is blocking it.

The catch was that I was only about 75% up when it would turn back. We hadn't had snow in a few days and the truck had been through a car wash the day prior so I don't think there was any ice or anything like that.

I use my windows daily, even if it is cold out. I usually make the truck too hot and I'll open the window to cool off.

It happened a few times in a row then stopped and haven't had any problems since.

I also don't have any window visors....in-channel or otherwise.

I have had this problem twice since I bought the truck in March. The first time it was the passenger mirror, a few weeks later the drivers mirror did it to me. Both times each window worked after shutting the truck off and then back on. It has been a few months since it has happened and definitely wasn't caused by the outside temperature. I would say it is the master switch on the drivers side because those 2 buttons didn't work at different times. Hopefully if it does fail it will still be under warranty.

I've just had it happen once on the drivers side window. Didn't think too much of it either, if it starts being a regular thing then I will get it looked at.
