Window Problem

I did a search but didn't find an answer. I recently removed my interior door handles to have them refinished. While they were out I removed the driver's side door card and adjusted the window. Reassembled everything and now the window isn't working properly. When I open the door it drops as it's supposed to. When I close the door it goes back up but then drops about 1/2 inch. After about 15 seconds it goes back up. The door unlock lever works fine. I turned the battery switch off overnight and tried again in the morning hoping that maybe the ECU need to be reset. No joy.

Any help someone can provide would be appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi Rich, I'm afraid that you'll have to disassemble again the door panel and check the micro-switch and the lever that actuates this switch. An ECU reset will not help because the ECU sees that your door is open. Can you post some pictures?

Thanks Stef. I took it back apart and saw that the window micro switch had moved during installation and wasn't being depressed by the handle. Repositioned and reinstalled the handle making certain that the switch stayed in place. The window now works as it should.
