This is something that needs to be KISSafied.
Window indexing is necessary on frameless windows in order to keep them from making noise at higher speeds and to ensure a tight seal.

Good thing I'm taking out my windows and putting in those nets so I can jump in.

Never heard of indexing until I started researching this car. I don't want any problems, I've had my share of power window issues in the past.

Most other current cars with frameless windows do it.

I'd rather have a window that has a little wind noise than something that seems so prone to have problems (not just on Camaro, it's common problem area on BMW 135, Corvette, etc.) I agree with the "KISS" comment.

What would happen if your 9 year old slammed the door shut, when the windows was not indexing correctly? We talking broken window?

For what it's worth, I'm watching an episode of SuperCars Exposed and he's driving the Pagani Zonda F and I noticed the window index when he closed the door.

I really don't think this is going to be a consistent problem. I'm not worried about it.

Yeah, mine had this happen once after the recall had been done. The DIC said something like put the passenger window down then up. Did that and all was well. Have not had any issues since.

I wish I had the indexing feature on my C4 Corvette. It seems everytime I close the door with the windows closed, if I don't slam the door shut, it doesn't fully close. I estimate that the life expectancy of the door mechanism is probably half of what it should be because its being done twice.
And above 40 mph there's a good amount of wind noise when the windows are closed.
Don't have those problems with the Camaro.

When I was looking at a 2010 Mustang(yikes) I noticed that it also has window indexing.
I have to imagine that if it messes up once, it will do it again.

It happened on my car this evening. 2SS VIN 8327. The message came up on the DIC and the Drivers side window would not go up or down. I thought well I will look in the manual. I turned it off then thought let me put her up in the garage. After getting in the garage the message was still there and for grins I hit the down button and whatdya know the window goes down. Then up and it works fine now. Just one of those quirky things. If it happens again I'll stop by the dealer and see what they say.

we had our windows tinted and because of the indexing, it started to peel the next day, so before I took it in for them to re-do that window, I decided to removed the fuse for the Driver's window. that should work right? Yeah that didn't work, it caused the problem with the door open and window up, the glass was hitting the weather stripping. re-setting the window as described worked. I think the window indexing is great to keep out road noise at higher speed, but boy it scared me at first, and PK was not happy i was "messing her car up".

the fix for the peeling tint was they heated the window from the outside with a heat gun to activate the glue, and no problem.

I have had to reset my driver’s side window once. Think it was the first week I got it. Have not had any problems since...

my G6 has the indexing windows, and not too long ago the passenger side stopped indexing. Its an awful sound when someone closes the door with any force when the windows doesn't index right.

I found that the only way I could get my car to reset the feature for that window correctly was to pull the power window fuse to force reset the system then reset the indexing for all the windows.

To reset the window indexing mode you must do the following.
Hold the window up button for 10 seconds, then release. Do this 3 x's and it will reset the system. Same as Pontiac G6 and Corvette.
