Abstract (en)

[origin: WO0165044A1] A system and method for automatically closing a moveable panel, such as a vehicle window. A power drive mechanism is controlled by a controller. The controller determines if the user has issued an "express up" command. Only if the panel is beyond a predetermined proximity of its fully closed position when the "express up" command is issued, is the panel powered to the fully closed position under its normal circumstances. If the panel is within the predetermined proximity, however, exception processing occurs.
