According to the advise I got in the training seminar I refer, the idea of the ten second check when initializing the windows was to accomplish two things at once. Normally the check of the switch wasn't necessary. If it triggers the thermal breaker it will reset quickly. That info was part of the same advice. I have tried it and nothing went wrong I just couldn't hear the breaker or it didn't break but nothing went wrong. I tried it on a car I was initializing. Everything initialized but I just couldn't hear and it wasn't that big of a deal. I'll try it agian I'm sure.
