Subaru Forester: Power window operation / Anti-entrapment function (windows with one-touch auto up and down function)

While closing the window automatically, if the window senses a substantial enough object trapped between the window and the window frame, it automatically moves down slightly and stops.

If a foreign object is caught while window is opening automatically, the window will stop.


  • Never attempt to test the power window operation using body parts.
  • If an object is caught just before the window fully closes, the system may not operate properly.


  • If a window detects an impact similar to that caused by trapping an object (for example, when the vehicle encounters a deep pothole), the anti-entrapment function may operate.
  • You cannot close the window for a few seconds after the anti-entrapment function operates.
