Any ideas if anybody has found a fix for this? I have the same problem on my 2013 135i coupe.

It seems everyone goes through the same drill..... 1st they do a software reload, then they clean/lube the window path and mechanism, then they replace motors. Mine went in three times under warranty for the issue in the first year and then no problems for the next six years. If I understand the system correctly the motor gives feedback (it's a selsyn) and when resistance is encountered before it reaches "home" it reverses. So if have to keep synching the same window it's either a gummed up mechanism or the motor. My new 2 series hasn't had the problem in 1 1/2 years.

As a couple others have posted here (including BDO's 640i) and another thread, I've never experienced the problem while the car is moving (even parking lots speeds). Since 2011 I've gotten into the habit of closing the windows when pulling up to my driveway, or backing into my garage.

If I park the car with the windows open, I'll have this problem 8 or 9 out of 10 times (makes no difference with engine running or not).

I saw this tip in this forum and after hearing about all the failed fixes (motors, software, etc), I found it easier to adjust my driving habits to resolve the problem.

I also have this problem and have had BMW and another BMW aftermarket specialist reset this and reprogram and it works for awhile but reverts back to everything described in this thread. 🤯

I've found this as well. Recently when idling in Park, I had the issue with the window when I was trying to close it, so I pressed the accelerator to bring revs up to about 1500-2000rpm and tried again, this time the window worked perfectly. I tried it 7 or 8 more times and it worked fine. Going back to idle, it still worked fine! I'm waiting for it to stop working again though, which I'm sure it inevitably will.

I get similar issues with the boot release, sometimes I need the engine running for the release to fully "pop", as sometimes it sounds like it only releases 1/2 way, not allowing the boot to open.

I feel like what we're seeing is a voltage issue with the window regulator, in that there is some correlation between the voltage produced at idle and the window problem. This would go some ways to explain why you never get the issue when driving. How to fix this on the other hand, I've no idea, since there aren't any other electrical issues with the car.
