How to Reset a Lexus Pinch Code

by Matthew Fortuna

The pinch code in your Lexus is used to program and control your windows, and you can reset the pinch code if it is not working in seconds from your driver's seat.

Remove the door panel underneath your window. Do this by unscrewing any screws on the face of the panel, and then the sides of the panel on the inside of the door.

Pull the panel off and locate the small pinch switch just underneath the window controller switch.

Press the switch down all the way and hold it there until the window is down completely.

Press the switch up and hold it up until the window is closed all the way.

Continue holding for a few seconds, and then release. You can then replace the door panel and your window will be working again.
