Trent I have a video on my phone doing the same. Although within the last few weeks it hasn't happened. It's so annoying. Someone said it was the cold weather why this was happening. But now its warm. (So what's the excuse- lol)

Then another person said it was my tints. I was gonna go to the dealer and show them the video. See what they say.

Mine does it. Usually the second time it will stay up. If it continues to do it I just have to turn the car off and then turn it back on and then they go right up with no issues.

#PIC5554: Power Window Reversal During Express Up - (Sep 26, 2011)
Subject: Power Window Reversal During Express Up
Models: 2010 - 2012 Chevrolet CamaroThe following diagnosis might be helpful if the vehicle exhibits the symptom(s) described in this PI.
Condition/Concern:A customer or technician may report of intermittent left or right door window motor reversal when closing the power window using the Express Up feature. This could occur at any time but would be more likely to occur at low vehicle mileage or possibly after window motor/regulator or weather strip replacement.
Recommendation/Instructions:Do not replace the window regulator or window motor for this concern.
Follow published repair procedures found in Service Information (SI) to adjust the window glass. If the glass is too tight to the weather strips, it can bind the motor to the point that it detects this as an obstruction and reverses the window motor direction.
Please follow this diagnostic or repair process thoroughly and complete each step. If the condition exhibited is resolved without completing every step, the remaining steps do not need to be performed.

Would it be fixed for free??

Looks like the auto Window up is malfunctioning. It acts like something is obstructing the windows path but nothing is visible. I would take it to the dealer ASAP and have them fix it while it's still under warranty.

Its not... I am at 38,000 miles. But it did this before, if they gave me the parts for free I would install it myself, because I know they will rape my face with labor charges

It was tinted when I bought it used. But the passenger window is also tinted and has NEVER done this. I have also tried re-indexing the windows, but that doesn't help either.

Trentin24,

Thanks for posting the video. I'm sorry you're experiencing this issue and would like to investigate this matter further if you could send me your VIN. I can also assist with setting up a dealer visit for an official diagnosis. Feel free to PM me if I can help. I look forward to hearing from you.

Regards,

William R.

before i post a tutorial on lubricating a door. white lithium in squeeze tube, apply to window guides and spray lithium to cables and into the area where they go into the housing of the motor, run window motor while spraying in there. dealer said they dont care if my window makes a grinding noise on the way up. i checked all other camraos on the the lot at that dealer, most grinded on the way up, one didnt, and one sounded like it was a freight train.

Mine has been doing that almost 2 years now. Started the very day I brought it home brand new.

Just the driver's side, but has never done this on the passenger side. Dealer said they are not allowed to fix it; it just has to bed in.

No answer to my question of why it has only been the driver's door.
No answer to my question of how many years they expect this to take to "bed in."

Ya just gotta hold the up button since releasing it to use the express up feature doesn't work about half the time.

Well, in my case the dealer handed me that bulletin, and said, "too bad, Chevrolet says we can't fix it, so you have to live with it.

So I sat there in the parking lot, reading the excuse bulletin, watching my window go back down over and over and over.

But, oh yeah, that little exercise was free.........

The problem with the logic in that bulletin or whatever is that it makes a statement about "low miles." Well, the mileage has absolutely no impact on window operation. And the bulletin only serves to reinforce the idea that this is a widespread problem - else they would not have had to publish something.

I ripped the dealer for copping out and not stepping up for a customer by saying, wait a minute, this has been going on for over a year. Chevrolet then called me; so in fairness to this topic, Yeah the dealer blew it off, but Chevrolet followed up. Now it's a question of whether I want to go right back to the idjit dealer, or travel, but yeah, the company did follow up with me.

It was explained to me as a temperature thing. My brother in law is a mechanic at the dealer where I got my 2010 and he explained that when its colder out that the rubber stiffens and the motor thinks something is stuck in the window. Been using Armorall on the seal and the only time this happens now is when temps are in the teens. Hope this helps some of you.

Hope I can help

My car does the same thing once in a while. It has to do with the position sensor for the window since it has the express vent when opening the door. Don't know if its been fixed but try this:
Turn car on to accessory, close door, if windows up, roll down all the way without using the auto down, then roll all the way up again without auto up. This calibrates it. I've seen a message in the Driver Info Center telling me to do this. I don't know if you've seen the same. I hope this helps.
