Drivers window doesn't always 'close'

It's an intermittent problem but sometimes when I close and lock the drivers door the window doesn't 'slide' up a tiny bit and there is a gap. I then have to climb in passenger side, put the key in the ignition and close the last bit manually.

Any ideas??

my guess is the switch inside the door latch that tells the body control module to drop the glass when you open and raise the glass when you close the door is dirty or messed up. my repair flow chart would be
#1 remove the door latch, clean and lube, then re-install. free if you can do it yourself.
#2 have dealer check programing on window drop, up when opening if there is such a thing.
#3 replace the latch
#4 replace the body module.

I would say something is either messed up in the timing of the door shutting and the window going up or a bad power window motor.

Have you done the window limit reset procedure? It's in the owners manual.
Briefly: You roll the windows down and hold the button down for 2 seconds then roll it up and hold the button up for 2 seconds. I think thats it. But check the book. I have to reset mine occasionally after a battery disconnect.

Here's the whole procedure:

SERVICE PROCEDURE

Perform a de-initialization procedure of the smart motor / side window glass, followed by re-initialization procedure.

NOTE: WINDOW RE-INITIALIZATION MUST BE PERFORMED WITH THE DOORS CLOSED.

NOTE: ON CONVERTIBLES, WINDOWS COULD BOUNCE BACK IF THE SIDE GLASS IS OUT OF ADJUSTMENT. REFER TO THE WORKSHOP MANUAL (WSM), SECTION 501-11.

NOTE: CHECK TO MAKE SURE THAT THE DOOR SEAL OR MIRROR SEAL IS NOT ROLLED OVER OR BINDING. ALSO, THAT THERE IS NO OBSTRUCTION IN GLASS SEALING AREA AND THE GLASS FIT AND/OR REGULATOR MECHANICAL FASTENING IS NOT LOOSE.

DE-INITIALIZATION PROCEDURE
De-initialization (un-learning) of the smart window motor clears the
memory of the module and shuts off the One-Touch UP, Bounce Back and Short Drop functions.
The smart window motors can be de-initialized in two (2) different ways:
Disconnect the battery cable from the battery WHILE THE WINDOW IS MOVING.
Remove the window motor fuse from the Power Distribution Box WHILE THE WINDOW IS MOVING.
After performing one of the above procedures, the smart motor must be re-initialized, see Initialization Procedure.

INITIALIZATION PROCEDURE
INITIALIZATION MUST BE PERFORMED WITH THE DOOR CLOSED! (For convertibles, top and the quarter glass must be in the up / closed position.)
From the window switch, perform the following steps without stopping:
Operate the window UP and stall for 2 seconds. (Hold The Switch)
Operate the window DOWN and stall for 2 seconds. (Hold The Switch)
The smart window motor will be initialized and one-touch-UP and Short Drop will be operational.
Cycle the window glass an additional five (5) times to set the window
"Soft Stop" for the down position.

TIP - VOLTAGE RANGE OF OPERATION: 9-16 VOLTS (AT THE MOTOR)
The smart motor will ONLY function in the 9-16 volt range; if the voltage at the smart motor drops below 9 volts, the window may not function properly or prematurely stop moving.
If the voltage drops below 9 volts while the motor is moving, the motor will become de-initialized (one-touch UP and Short Drop will be
inoperable).
If the motor becomes de-initialized due to low voltage, see initialization procedure for instruction.

Good Luck,

Dave T.

good luck with the repairs.
i would suggest a window reset first. this is the easiest thing to do and i ASS-u-ME-d you did that already when i first posted.
another suggestion on diagnostics is when you close the door and the glass doesn't complete the roll up.
if you reopen the door and slam it shut will it finish rolling up consistently? if it does then the latch switch is definitely dirty or bad or the striker is out of adjustment
. when you slam the door shut it will give the switch a better signal to roll up. also your latch could be slightly worn where it meets the jamb striker. the wear won't allow the switch to fully close, a slam will overcome the mis-adjustment. so a small adjustment of the striker could be the fix also.
