Hi,

The auto down function on all 4 of the power windows has stopped working, however there was a two week period when they started working again. I live in northern Canada and they stopped working around -30 deg celsius and started working again when it warmed up to 0. I though it maybe a cold related issued however they have mysteriously stopped working again and its above 0. So that rules out my suspicions that its temp. related.

The other suspicion I have is that I had battery related issues earlier in the winter and have since replaced the battery. The dealership has said that this problem is most likely a draw coming from the radio when the car is shut off but they have an computer update for this and will do it next time I'm in (600 km away). Maybe this is related to the window switch issue?

Does anyone have any idea of what the problem is or a solution

Thanks

it can be a dirty switch clean with switch cleaner, or it is your relay , you need tests done to find out.as it can be a dirty connection for your cable for the drivers door on the edge of the door frame .

Every time your battery goes dead the auto windows need to be reprogrammed. It's easy to do. With the ignition on raise the window button up for one second, then release, then pull up on it against for one more second. This information is in your owners manual its on page 101.

Sound like the master window switch, This switch has a new, improved design that eliminates the gummy button coating and moving parts and tongs that failed in your stock switch! http://www.switchdoctor.net/volvo-window-switch.html
