Default Installed '13 impreza fog light kit

I just installed my fog light kit last night and am very happy with it. But, for some reason my driver side window doesn't automatically go up and down anymore. I have to hold the switch up or down like the rest of the windows. Anybody encounter this issue at all and have a fix? Thanks.

Did you disconnect your battery while doing the install? Im not too sure about the impreza but in my other car's, after the battery was disconnected, the auto window feature had to be rest. This was done by: holding the window down button for 10 seconds, then down for 10 seconds, then up for 10 seconds.

again, not sure if this will work on the impreza, but worth a try

I still can't find my stupid wiring loom for the fog light switch...

Was yours just dangling there behind the fuse cover?

My loom seems to be lost somewhere.... -_-

Yeah, the battery was disconnected and that did the trick. The auto window feature is working again. Thanks for the help.

The wiring loom was just hanging there by the fuse box wrapped in pink tape for me. It was taped up right next to the illumination dimmer wires.

That's ridiculous that you had to reset the auto-down feature. Never heard of such a thing.

Not really a big deal. It is spelled out in the owners manual. IIRC, all the way down, then half way up. Then, all the way up and hold the switch for a few seconds. Done. (I might have the up/down procedure reversed.)

This is quite common.

Had to do this on my Cadillac last week.

I've apparently been living under a rock (aka Honda) for the last few years. Re-learning some of what I'll call the Subaru quirks like no accessory power retain and cruise control that turns off each time I turn the engine off.

+1 regarding the cruise control. I am therefore forced to re-enable my cruise control every time I get in the car (since I use cruise control daily). I guess that's the difference between a mechanical toggle switch for the cruise control vs. a soft switch.

Oh well, I can think of worse things.
