Why do my windows have auto down, but not auto up? I find it odd. I was just wondering if there was a reason for it. My old crappy Mazda had auto up. Just curious if there is a good reason or they just didn't do it.

My '14 Durango has auto up. If it were really a liability or safety hazard, Dodge wouldn't have it on some models.

Unlessss they figured that Challengers are so gorgeous that young ladies and/or gentlemen would constantly be leaning into the window to flirt with the driver and thus be a greater risk :rolleyes:

I bet it is either a cost decision or has something to do with the frameless windows.

That's what I was thinking. Because the window is frameless. But I still think its kind of odd. We can all speculate, but if anyone knows the real reason, lets us know! It's just weird!

Oh, I know some engineers that could do it........:icon_aetsch:


Our Toyota has auto up too, Ford truck does not.
Mustang has auto up, a beloved feature I will lose next year:(

It's just cost cutting. It probably saves 25c per car or something like that.

I wonder if it has anything to do with the hi and lo bus. All the hi bus cars have auto up. Challenger is a lo bus. Just a guess, I'm no engineer.

It is kinda like the decision to not put a glove box light when the harness is there and all you need is a switch, bulb and plastic trim to add it.

Does anyone keep driving gloves in their glove compartment anymore? Maybe it's time by now to call it something else

I'm pretty sure it has to do with the shape of the window. If the rear edge goes straight up, you get auto-up. If there's point where somebody in the back seat can get a finger pinched by the rear of the window, no auto up.

Might have to do with the window dropping 1/4" and back up when opening and closing the doors being frameless.

My 2010 Ram has this option as well and I really like it. Bonus is I can open the windows with the fob on both my 2010's. Liked that option as well. Too bad it's gone.

I've always wondered if other model Chrysler use the same switches and have auto up could we just get the switch from like a 2010 or so charger, 300 and replace ours or is there more to auto up then just the switch?

My wife's Audi A4, which is not as well made, has auto-up windows. But to tell you the truth, I sometimes wish they were not auto-up, as they make it tricky to raise the window to the desired level in a hurry.
In other words, I don't miss the feature in my Challenger.
