Grand Caravan

  • 36,500 miles
I was just starting driving after being at a stop. I used the window control that automatically rolls the window completely up. When the window reached the top, there was a loud popping noise. After that, the window started slowly sliding down on it's own. My husband disassembled the door and replaced the window regulator. Since that time (10 months ago), the same thing has happened a total of 3 times. The belief is that it is an electrical problem, making the computer system think that the window isn't up all the way (possibly a sensor not detecting that the window is completely up). The system then keeps trying to roll the window up more, snapping the cables connected to the regulator. Not only is this a nuisance, it is an expensive fix. It is also very distracting while driving and could cause an accident due to the loud noise when it breaks, as well as trying to keep your window from falling into your door while driving.
