United-Kingdom auto window close issue

my passenger side window seems not to want to Auto Close when asked to, you have to keep your finger on the switch to close it, I have tried to reset its memory as per to the drivers side but it just don't want to know, it does Auto open, so my question is where is the issue the switch or in the door ?

My 2005 convertible is the same, I thought this was normal behaviour?

The passenger side is not auto close on any I've owned, was a safety issue Mini told me.

so why is it only MINI does this and every other car i've ever owned does the auto close thing. Most interesting, may pop into the MINI showroom and test them out on this one and ask the question,

Let us know how you get on - it is a pain having to hold the switch up to close the window.

because there is no sensor in the windows to detect obstructions, so if you close it on someone's fingers it will nearly brake them before the motor finally gives up, for some reason they trust you to not crush anyone's hand on the drivers side but not the passengers side

Manufacturers seem to do the most ridiculous things to save money.
On a Freelander 2 the interior footwell lights arent active on the lesser models, but thats only because they dont put the bulb in them, all the rest of the lamp and wiring etc is there, so by putting in a 10p bulb you have the lighting.
Quite how much that saves on a production line, is probably next to zero.

Won't let me post links as I don't have enough posts but google "fes-auto auto-up v7" and its the first link.

But it seems a little expensive for what little it actually does :s

I bought the Top Commander for R52 as I got sick of having to hold the button down to open / close the roof. It also does the windows which I use to close all 4 windows at the same time.

Well worth the money for the convertible.
