    Driver's side window remained stuck open about 1 inch when driver rolled down window with slight tap on window switch driving motion at highway speeds. Window would not go up or down while in motion when using switch to open or close window even after coming to complete stop (on shoulder of road) and shutting down vehicle. Was able to fix when putting vehicle in accessory mode (not running or in motion) and place hands gently on both sides of window to gently move up to highest allowed position then close window with switch. This fixed the problem and window switch operated as usual. Vehicle mileage was around 3,100. We believe the cause is a safety sensor in the window switch component that detects obstruction in window which stops window from operating. Read other forums that stated window got stuck open at highway speeds and would not move. Their fix was to open sun roof and then shut drivers side window. This did not work for us.

    When the car? S headlight switch is set to? Auto? , the head and taillights will turn on and off at random, regardless of lighting conditions. The lights randomly turn on while the car is off and stationary and has resulted in a drained battery on three occasions. . The lights turn on and then back off while in motion during daytime driving (as indicated by the dashboard indicator). When on and while in motion at night, the lights turn off, resulting in zero visibility while driving.
