Getting a message that the Left Front "window is not initialized"; the window regulator was replaced about 2 years ago. Any idea what's going on?

sometimes it just gets out of whack. Search for "window initialize" and it's an easy procedure that takes about 30 seconds to correct. I cannot remember the exact steps, but it's something like this:

run the window all the way to the bottom
press the button like you were going to put the window down and hold it for 17-20 seconds
pull the switch to "up" and hold it until the window goes UP all the way, and then DOWN all the way (holding the switch UP all the way)
now it's initialized.

Good luck!
