I was experiencing an ongoing issue on my power reclining seat yesterday... the seat will recline back but it has a problem returning back to its upright position. After several attempts, the motor finally responded and I was able to return the seat back to it's "normal" position. However, in so doing it then affected my automatic one-touch power window control. My driver side "Automatic One-Touch" window will now automatically raise the window to the top and the retract and stop the wind at a 3/4 (75% up) position.

I have tried the "reset options" that are in the Owners Manual and online but since my window will not stop at the top they do not work. Any thoughts or help would be appreciated!

Thank you!

It sounds like your BIM is dead/dying/on the fritz.
Body Integrated Module

CANbus system that operates interior functions... and I think like turn signals and such.
Only remedy for the BIM is to replace it. Other than that check fuses for breakage and/or corrosion possibly.
