power window flaky

Have had this issue since I can remember but it did it out of nowhere today... I pull the driver window button all the way so it's auto-up... but sometimes it reverses direction and starts going down instead. Most of the time it's coincided with full-up of the passenger window also, or I open the door, or something of that nature so perhaps it got confused. But today, I full-up the driver window and started simply turning the steering wheel... then it decides to full-down while nearly all the way up.

Anyone else experience this? Does it have a safety mode where if something is in the way it goes back down? And it's catching for some reason? Absolutely nothing is in the way. And only happens with the driver window. It always goes up the 2nd time just fine so I'm pretty sure nothing is "caught".

I've experienced this when closing the drivers window and turning the engine off right afterwords, as in as the window is going up/closing, I hit the engine stop button and the window goes back down.

Never figured it out. Hard to replicate too.

This is what I've been experiencing recently as well. I thought it was only me. I'm going to the dealer Tues and talk to my SA about it.
