If your driver's side window doesn't "Auto-Up" (if equiped), check your brake lights. This has happened to me twice.

I thought the switch was shorting out. Then my wife told me my right brake light was out. A few days later I noticed that the window was working again. I didn't put it together, but recently the window wasn't auto-upping again. A day later my wife told me the driver's side brake light was out. Then the light above my head went on. I replaced the bulb and Wah Lah, the window worked again.

I wanna say coincidence. My windows did the same thing and had to be reprogrammed which is done by running the window all the way down, then hold the switch all the way up and hold for a few seconds after it hits the top. After doing that my windows worked fine again. Since owning mine Ive had that happen a few times and not a single bulb has burnt out on me yet.

I'll try to remember the reprogramming thing. Might be some sort of voltage thing. Don't know. Just that I tested the window right before and after the bulb change.

Yeah, Okay, it was late and I wasn't going to look it up.

That is odd and it could be related, not positive since I havent had a bulb go out yet.

Just for the fun of it you could remove the bulb and stick the bad one back in to see if your hypothesis is accurate. You might be able to do it with no bulb at all if you do not still have the bad one.

I agree .... put the blown out bulb back in to repeat the experiment ... and get back to let us know

I still have the bulb. I'll try to get to get to it. Maybe tomorrow.

I tested it out, and it seems that it might have been a coincidence. I made sure the window worked and turned the key off. I then put in the bad bulb, turned the key on again (not starting engine), tested window, and it still worked. I didn't go crazy with the test as in having the key out of the ignition and open the door for over a minute like resetting the satellite radio.

Still good results, it would have been odd that the two were connected somehow.

The truck is "smart", but not that smart. I thought it was one of those things like when the directional flashes faster when a bulb is blown.
