stupid question about Window

Hi,

I have a stupid experience this afternoon: I was playing (or experimenting) with the driver's side and passenger's side power windows to see if they have the same speed rolling up/down... After around two dozens stupid trying... The windows stop working (laugh me...)

I wait another five minutes, and no luck still not working (I could hear the window motor click when hitting the button). After another restart of the car, the windows are back online and everything seems fine again.

Could anyone help me understand what is the problem of the window that cause it stopped working and why it works again? (I am also to blame as well...)

You probably overheated the motor and its thermo protection needed to be reset.

You ran the battery voltage down to the point that it didn't have enough oomph to move the window. The clicking sound confirms that. When you restarted the car your electrical system restored enough voltage to move the window again. Perhaps your battery charge was somewhat low to begin with.

FYI, at the moment mine are not the same speed. I hate that so much I'm taking it back to the dealer to fix.

One is just over half a second slower (you can notice the difference believe me!)
