    Most be some weird system thing, I DEFINITELY saw your original post when I started my post and I responded accordingly at 10:56 .... then when I looked at the thread moments after I posted your post was different so I added my response ..... within a minute or so of my original post (as it def doesn’t show ‘edited’)

    I have had that happen too on this forum. Must be something to do with the caching, the forum aint right in a lot of small ways I think.

    The cable that snapped is the one that pulls the window up. There are no limit switches on the system, it relies on monitoring the current draw from the motor to decide if it is up or down. This means that all the time the window is closed there is huge stress on the closing cable, you can twang it and make music.

    I think most electric windows are like this now for safety. It will stop if you put any object in the way such as a child's head.

    For sure it is a bad design and an failure waiting to happen.

    Electric widows are immensely powerful. You can cut your neeps with them.
