Passenger Window

I have been having problems with the passenger window in my 2014 Seneca FK. It goes down just fine but it will not always go back up.

Any suggestion of where to begin troubleshooting?

I had the same problem with the right window. It would go down but not up. The dealer grabbed the top of the glass and pressed the up button and pulled it up. He said the frame was to tight. He took the door apart and adjusted the frame. It then worked a few weeks just fine. Last week it would not come up again. I pulled on it and pushed the up switch but it still would not come up. I let it sit for about 30 minutes, turned on the ignition again and hit the up switch about 30 times and it started up. I closed it completely and will not put it down again until I'm back at the dealers. There is a thermal switch in the motor, it could be bad or the up switch may also be bad. At any rate I won't mess with it until I get home.

Seneca window

I had the same problem in my 2014 Seneca and rather than deal with Freightliner, I purchased and installed a new switch for $21 from Amazon. Presto-Chango! It's 10 torx screws to get to it. My plastic dash was crumbling at the screw locations when I had it apart, so went to Freightliner anyway. The service writer said they had seen a few with the same problem. New dash-no squeaks. $1800 warranty issue.

Same problem here on my 2014 fs, had both switches replaced under warranty, passenger window was the worst offender.

My cab windows seem to come up much slower than they go down, but they never have stopped part way. For those that had bad switches replaced, do you notice any improvement in how quickly they come back up?

Seems the switches are a weak point, now wondering if I should get a spare just in case............

The passenger window on our 2015 Seneca had the same problem - window came down, but wouldn't always come back up. Turned out to be a bad switch.

My did the same thing. New switch and regulator. Now the drivers side is doing it also. Just gonna fix it myself. By the time I figure fuel and travel time it costs more to have Freightliner do it.

After reading all of these posts, Ive opted to order an additional switch and replace both when I have the dash out. This has been very helpful. 55 miles one way and a day off from work to the nearest Freightliner Repair Center...
