Garage List
Window Pinch Protection Malfunction Icon

Guys,

Looking for some help. I was hardwiring my Escort and I decided to use a fuse prong 'slider' when connecting it to a power source. I chose to connect it to fuse #38 (IIRC) which operates the windows. While I was doing it, my doors were open, didn't think it mattered (i.e. windows were down just a hair as they normally slide down a bit once the doors are open).

I tested the Escort, all was fine until the yellow icon indicating the Pinch Protection System Malfunction lit up. Right now my passenger side window is completely inoperable, it sits 1/2 inch below full up level (i.e. the amount it travels downwards when you open the door). Driver's side window is fine, I can operate it in any manner I like, so no issues there.

Looked at the manual, under this malfunction recommended action is: "Have system checked". Is there any way I can reset it (perhaps disconnect battery for a bit), or by holding the buttons for a while up/down? Hoping I can get it working again without a visit to the dealer?

Also, any way to at least manually raise it to the max? As mentioned, it sits 1/2 inch lower so it's right below the rubber window insulation, afraid water may come though. Thx!
