Passenger door window operation??

Hi all,

As you all know, I have a new to me 2013 ex-demo 500 Street TA.

I have a question regarding the windows? The drivers door window will go up and down automatically with one touch, however the passenger door window will only rise if you keep your finger on the button? I have tried holding the button down once the glass has been raised, but to no avail?

Any advice anyone? I've looked in the handbook, and couldn't find any mention of it?

It's functioning exactly as it should be.

There is no autoclose on the passengers window for health & safety reasons.

If you are a cynic, you could say there is no autoclose because FIAT were too cheap to fit an obstruction sensor.

My Panda doesn't have autolower on the passengers side; only the driver's side is one-touch operation.

All Fiats are like this, and have been for at least ten years.

Re: Passenger door window operation??

Thanks for the clarification. I just skimmed it and thought that the others had noted that the passenger door window wasn't one-touch to close, unlike the driver's, which is.

I thought that one of them thought that this seeming discrepancy might be a fault, whereas in fact it is a design and safety feature that has been incorporated into Fiats for a long time now. I was only trying to reassure people.

My mistake I'm sure...

Err no it isn't, the latter is the exact reason there isn't this function on the passenger side.

Wrong. Most larger Fiats for the last decade have. All Stilos and current Bravos have one touch on ALL (yes all four) of the windows

Re: Passenger door window operation??

My MX-5 (2010) has one touch down on both windows, but one touch up on neither. Isn't it weird that Fiat only stopped one touch up on one door??

My 500 definitely has one touch down on both doors.

Thanks for your help guys.

Then be so. The 500 has one touch down on both doors; the Panda only on the driver's door. They both have one touch up on the driver's door only.

So is this all 500s then or only later ones

Can't understand Fiats Logic at times.
