"Power Window Anti-Trap Function".

Hello,

Yesterday, I got my windows tinted...
The guy said to NOT roll down the window for a day or so.

Well, this morning, my mom took my car for a joyride and unknowingly put down the windows.
Every window is fine but the right passenger door. The window went up halfway, and won't go up or down.

When you press the button, it doesn't click or purr or anything. It's like the motor isn't working at all.

The people at the shop did NOT take off the door panels and take out the window or anything when tinting.


Can someone tell me what is wrong?


Thank you.

Could water from the window tinting have gotten in the panels? That happened to me when i had the Audi. Luckily once it dried out the window worked fine.

As mentioned above, i wonder if when the window rolled down, the window seal/sill acted as a squeegee and squoze the water from between the window and tint and it dripped down into some electrical parts.

I'd check for a blown fuse.

I figured it out.

To anyone else that ever has this problem...here is what I did.

Disconnect the battery for 1min.
When connected, turn the key on.
Go to the window, turn it all the way up, and hold the button up for 30sec.
(The window will only go up in increments because it is resetting)
Put the window all the way down, and hold the down button for 30sec.
Keep doing this until the window will go up and down all by itself.

I assume that it got stuck, and the car disabled that window to prevent regulator damage.

Even though all of the windows work just fine, I can't stop getting that stupid message to pop up every 2 seconds.

I've been doing a lot of research on Google on how to get it to go away, but I'm not having any luck.
If anyone has some insight, please let me know.


Thanks.

I had a similar problem with my 2008 coupe. The coupe window drops down about an inch when the door handle is operated and goes up the same amount when the door is closed. This gives the frameless windows a tight seal. The window wouldn't not fully extend with the passenger door closed. It was under warranty so I took it to the dealer. There is a reset procedure that the dealer attempted. That didn't fix the problem, so they replaced the motor. That didn't fix it either, so after talking to BMW, they replaced a control module.

When I had rear window problems in an e46, I tried several fixes. Ultimately, I disconnected the battery to try to do a general control module swap with a friend's car. We decided not to do the swap since his module had a different hardware and software number. But surprisingly (to me anyway) disconnecting the battery solved the problem. The windows worked fine and I didn't get a error message or code.

If your windows are working properly, but you are still getting an error message, you might try disconnecting the battery for about an hour or so. Then reconnect. It's possible that there is a code in memory and it will still show up unless it's cleared. Disconnecting the battery won't clear the code, but it may cause the control module to reset like it did in my e46.

I'm going to put my Verus on it tomorrow and see if I can clear that stupid error. If that doesn't work, I'll try disconnecting the battery for an hour.

I'll let you know what happens.

The Verus did nothing.
I tried disconnecting the battery for several hours. It did nothing.

I had this problem with my rear passenger side window on 07 328i. I just got the car so I was showing my brother the trick where when I put my key in the door I can roll all the windows down. He thought it was cool but then when I went to roll them back up the rear passenger side would not roll up.
When you went to roll it up it would shoot up like 2 centimeters and then drop right back down. After about 15 minutes of doing it it finally rolled back up. Now the rear windows are locked and I will not be rolling them down again lol.

WOWWWWW!!!
So remember how I told yall my passenger side window wouldnt roll up? Now I had a friend driving my car and when we pulled up to the drive through she accidentally rolled down the rear driver side window and now it will not roll up!
When I try to roll it up all you hear is the motor run and the window does not move. Taking it to the dealership ASAP! So pissed at BMW because I've read how many people have this kind of problem, shoulda bought another RSX and wouldnt have to worry about these silly ass problems! Prolly gonna be $400 just to get the POS fixed!

I think I have to take mine to the dealer too...

Does anyone have ANY clue on how to get the warning to go away?

I've tried disconnecting the battery for over an hour.
I've tried putting a Verus on it.
I've tried cycling all of the windows up and down various times.
I've tried rolling the window up and holding the button, then vice-versa.
Nothing will make the damn warning go away.

The dealership said they want at least $102 to put the damn computer on it to clear the code. That's retarded.

They are saying it is probably the window regulator which is about 400-600.... Perfect...

I disconnected the negative battery terminal for about a minute. When I put it back on, the window reset and started working again.

Even though it was working, the "power window anti-trap function" warning kept screaming at me every 5 seconds. The code never reset. I called BMW and they wanted $106 to clear the fault.
Instead, I bought a Bavarian Tech from Burger Motor Sports (~$300) and reset it myself.
Never had a problem since.

Thanks, I may go that route also. There must be some kind of windows button pressing sequence timed with the warning message that will reset it.

I think I got that 1st part. I got the warning message to stay on.

started with the one of the rear windows all the way up.

moved the one of the rear windows all the way down by holding the windows button to the second notch. release the button when windows reaches the bottom.

wait for the annoying message to display, while the message on the screen, press the window button down (second notch) and hold until the message returns,

when the message return, release the button and immediately pull the button up to the second notch. this is when the message light will stay on.

at this point we can close the window in small increments while the message is on.

I have tried different combinations but I think I'm still missing something...

once the window reaches the top, holding the button up will get the one touch roll up working with the anti-pinch function working... but does not stop the message from showing up every 20 seconds.


I'm taking the car to the dealer to get the Fuel Pump + software update recall done.

maybe when they do the software recall it will reset the annoying message.

Fixed it

I was able to reset the error message with inpaloader and a INPA K+CAN K+DCAN cable that I got from amazon.

at last, no more: Dong........Dong..........Dong... that was driving me nuts.

Try pulling the battery. Then hold the window button in the up position for 30+ seconds. Then in the down position for 30+ seconds. This should allow the window to learn the down and up positions.

If the window doesn't move at all, check the fuses.

Try the following sequence (copied from the E65 subforum, user TechFreak):

1) Start the Car.
2) Roll down the window all the way to the bottom on the "defective" window using that windows own button not the driver's one (the window wants to stop every xx inches, keep making it go down all the way)
3) Release the window switch
4) Push and hold down the switch for EXACTLY 17 seconds (17 SECONDS IS CRITICAL)
5) After 17 seconds immediatly pull and HOLD up the switch to roll the window up.
6) While still holding up the button, the window should travel all the way up to the top, then travel all the way down again , and finally all the way up once more.
