      Window won’t roll up

      With all the rain we’ve had recently and upcoming, it’s a good thing my window motor has crapped out and won’t roll up the last 1/2”. I’ve been searching for replacements and have come to the question of whether I need to buy the entire window control unit and motor, or if I can just replace the motor with an advance auto aftermarket unit and reuse the old window control unit?

      You can replace the motor and keep the controller. In any case, you will likely need to calibrate the controller with VIDA/DICE. Otherwise, the window may go up, trigger the safety and go back down. If it does this you can probably manually reposition the gear and try again until it closes with out triggering, but the VIDA/DICE calibration is easiest if you have access to it.

      I’ve got the vida, but am garbage at it. How would I complete the reset? I read on pelican parts that you just manually raise the window (not with the auto up) and then hold it two seconds to teach the computer where full up is. Is this not the preferred method, or is vida reset required?

      I kind of just fumble around until I find stuff in VIDA and I really need to start documenting this stuff. I found a post for changing car settings but it was for an S60. It was a similar process only instead of clicking on CEM, click on DDM for driver door module or PMM for passenger door module. I think there should be a calibrate window or something like that. Click on the thing that looks like a control module that says something like VT2000 on it. Follow the instructions.

      When I get chance I'll hook up my DICE and get better instructions unless someone else can help us out.
