Power windows (if equipped) The ignition switch must be in the ON position for power windows to operate.

Each door has a power window switch that controls that door’s window.

However, the driver has a power window lock switch which can block the operation of passenger windows.

NOTICE
While driving with the rear windows down or with the sunroof (if equipped) in an open(or partially open position), your vehicle may demonstrate a wind buffeting or pulsation noise. This noise is a normal occurrence and can be reduced or eliminated by taking the following actions. If the noise occurs with one or both of the rear windows down, partially lower both front windows approximately one inch. If you experience the noise with the snroof open, slightly reduce the size of the sunroof opening.

NOTICE
• To prevent the power window system from the possibility of damage, do not open or close two windows at the same time. This will also ensure the longevity of the fuse.

• Never try to operate the main switch on the driver's door and the individual door window switch in opposing directions at the same time. If this is done, the window will stop and cannot be opened or closed.
