In the iDrive disable the window anti-trap function and you're good to go!

Ummmmm....yeah, that's not an option in iDrive (at least not on the '04 E60s).

1. Try re-initializing the window motor. Do a search for the procedure - its something long the lines of holding up on the window button for a little while and then holding down on it for a while.

2. If that doesn't work, it could be a bad window motor in which case you'll need to have it replaced. Should be in the $300 range if its not covered under any sort of warranty.

I had the exact same thing happen to my car right after I bought it except it was the passenger window. They ended up replacing the motor under the original warranty - haven't had a problem with it since.

You're right I just went and checked, sorry! I can't remember how I did it to mine.

The warning fault will clear itself once the window goes back down all the way
