Window bounce back is jacked up

Sometime the window will not drop when the door is opened causing the window to strike the surround when the door is closed and bounce back. My battery died the other day and that seems to be when it started. I have reset the window by holding the button in the closed window position, dc'ed and reconnected the the battery... What else could it be? It doesn't happen every time...just about once every 5 or 6 instances.

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.

I tried the reset you posted slt, but it did not help. It seems to work fine if I shut the door softly, but when I shut it normal, then window drop doesn't occur quickly enough

Disconnect the battery and then run the procedure again.

my question kinda falls in the same line as this...i think anyway lol.

i have a 2007 mustang and the driver side window doesnt go all the way down. once all the way down u can still see a little bit of the top of the window.

when i have the window all the way up and than open the door. the window drops as it should only it still nicks the frame of the door since the window doesnt drop down enough.

if i do what is suggested in the other post to re-calibrate the window will it help go competely down into the door so that it isnt sticking out. this way when i open the door when window is closed it wont still hit the frame?

lol i hope that can be deciphered, sorry.
