I have a 2011 Panamera 4 and my windows do not auto close using the one-touch operation when sitting in the two front seats. I have to hold the window trigger the entire time while the one-touch works great to open the windows.  The two rear window controls auto close using the one-touch, just not from the two front seat window controls.


I'd like to determine if there's a problem with the front window control switch or not.


I was told by my dealer that the one-touch close operation is restricted to only work when the window is more than 50% closed because of safety concerns.  Unfortunately, this doesn't work for me either.  No matter what position the window is in, I can not get the windows to close without me holding the trigger the entire time.


Can anyone confirm or deny the one-touch close restriction from the two front seats ?  


If true, I'd be shocked that Porsche would take this stance on such a common feature in every car that has electric window controls.  And also if true, do I have any options to remove the auto close restriction ?


Thank you

Ok, after being told different things from the dealer, the problem turns out to be a bad driver side window control switch.  


Honestly, I was told by a sales guy that Porsche restricted the one touch operation for closing windows for a few years (970s 2011-2013) for safety reasons. Even the guys that manage the service area said there wasn't a way to make it work.  They could only try and 'calibrate' it.  Which means they hold the window trigger up for 10-15 seconds.


None of this made sense so I'm glad I pushed back.
