It's happend to me

on my '94 S500 twice in three years. Both times at very unexpected times. Nothing was replaced, battery was not removed, etc..

Both times it was fixed by following the 'sketchy' procedure given in your Owners Manual on page 68.

It states:
If the door windows cannot be fully opened or closed automatically by pressing the button past the point of resistance (e.g. after the vehicle battery change), press the UP SIDE of the power window switch until the window is completely closed and hold for additional 2 seconds. Repeat the procedure for each window

The automatic full opening and closing procedure of the door windows should now be restored.

As I remember, I also moved the windows down to the bottom also holding the switch for a few seconds after the window bottomed. Then repeated this at the top doing this LAST!

Also found that the Mercedes "2 seconds" can be more like "5" or "6". But this procedure (as modified) worked like a charm!
