Yes, you have to have foot on the brake to start the car, ready light showing on a hybrid, for power windows to operate. Do not work in Accessory mode.

I wouldn't give it any concern. Do you worry that your power window motor will fail if you lower and raise it too much?

I also had an MB with a shade--if you left it up for several hours, it...
