GT-H problems after disconnecting battery! HELP

Hi all, I had to disconnect my battery, negative cable. No problems. When I later connected it back, I have 2 problems... The drivers window now does not automatically go back up to seal when the door is closed, also I have a little red flashing light on my dash when the ignition is off - looks like a car with a pad lock over it!? Car starts fine, remote locking works fine too.. Any ideas? HELP! :-) Jonathan

Read the owners manual. Their is a section about the windows that will help you reset this problem. The red flashing light could be the alarm system? read up on that too.

 

Sadly I did not get an owners manual when I purchased by GT-H! I am going to buy one though, so in the meantime, any advice? Does any one else have a manual and can tell me what it says? Please :)

Jonathan, My passenger window did this once and would not go back up after you closed the door. It was after the battery went dead in the car. I also read there was a way to reset the window in the owners manual but my car actually healed itself. I never got to read the owners manual but after about a week it just self adjusted. ITS A MIRACLE!

 

I hope this lets you know the problem seems to be common,

Restoring the Express up functionality (Front windows only)

Under low battery power conditions, Express Up only functionality may

be lost. To reset this function after restoring full battery power, pull the

switch to the Express Up position, hold the switch until the glass

reaches the stall position and continue to hold for 2 seconds. Push the

window switch DOWN and operate the window to the full down position.

Express UP will now be functional. Perform Express UP

re-calibration with door closed only. Calibrating with door open

will cause the window to continuously bounce back.

 

Short drop glass (Front windows only)

In order to improve door efforts and sealing, your vehicle is equipped

with short drop glass. This feature lowers the glass when either door is

opened. The glass returns to its closed position when the door is closed.

Proper operation of the short drop glass requires that the windows be

calibrated. Though your windows will have been calibrated before

your vehicle is delivered to you, it is possible for the windows to

lose calibration. If a window loses its calibration, your short drop

feature will lower the window, but will not raise it again when the door is

closed. To re-calibrate the window, pull the switch up to raise the

window until it completes its travel and hold the switch up for 2

seconds. Another possible effect of lost calibration is that the feature

may not lower the window. To re-calibrate the window in this case, lower

the window until it completes its travel and hold the switch down for 2

seconds. Immediately after releasing the window down switch, pull the

switch up to raise the window until it completes its travel and hold the

switch up for 2 seconds. Perform Short drop re-calibration with

doors closed only. Re-Calibrating with doors open will cause the

window to continuously bounce back.

PM me your email address & i'll try & send you an electronic copy of the manual

 

 

but it says this.....

 

Anti-theft indicator

The anti-theft indicator is located in the instrument cluster.

 

• When the ignition is in the 1 (OFF/LOCK) position, the indicator will

flash once every 2 seconds to indicate the SecuriLock system is

functioning as a theft deterrent.

• When the ignition is in the 3 (ON) position, the indicator will glow for

3 seconds, then turn off to indicate normal system functionality.

 

If a problem occurs with the SecuriLock system, the indicator will flash

rapidly or glow steadily when the ignition is in the 3 (ON) position. If

this occurs, the vehicle should be taken to an authorized dealer for

service.

 

Automatic arming

The vehicle is armed immediately after switching the ignition to the 1 (OFF/LOCK) position.

The theft indicator will flash every two seconds when the vehicle is armed.

 

Automatic disarming

Switching the ignition to the 3 (ON) position with a coded key disarms

the vehicle.

• The theft indicator will illuminate

for three seconds and then go

out.

• If the theft indicator stays on for

an extended period of time or flashes rapidly, have the system

serviced by your authorized dealer.

 

Replacement keys

If your keys are lost or stolen and you don’t have an extra coded key,

you will need to have your vehicle towed to an authorized dealer. The

key codes need to be erased from your vehicle and new coded keys will

need to be programmed.

 

Replacing coded keys can be very costly. Store an extra programmed key

away from the vehicle in a safe place to help prevent any

inconveniences. Please visit an authorized dealer to purchase additional

spare or replacement keys.

Cool, now quit worrying about the little red light flashing in the instrument cluster, because it's supposed to do that when you lock the car with the key fob...
