Folks,

Need some advice.

My drivers side window has developed a mind of its own. Intermittently (of course), the window either drops by about a cm or so, or does not rise fully after the door shuts. It will then go up a minute or so later. On occasion it will go down again, spontaneously, and then (after a few seconds) go up.

My OPC has replaced the regulator (which broke recently) but the problem persists.

Clearly I am going to get it looked at again, but does anyone have any suggestions? I am minded that the fault is intermittent and it may not play up for Porsche.

Many thanks,

Rich

It may have been done already but the reset is quite simple:

Could be worth a go..

I believe it’s the same method for the windows.

Sounds to me to be a microswitch in the door handle. What happens if you just lift the handle to the point of resistance ie before you start to unlatch it?

Agree yep that, door handle microswitches, the passenger door outer handle on my Boxster plays up sometimes due to lack of use.

Does the door pull inside the car work as it should, ie pull it a little, not enough to unlock the door, and the window drops, let go and it goes back up Question Same with the outer door handle, pull it a little to drop the window, then release and it goes back up Question

Mine did the same earlier this year and all I did was strip all the internals down, clean everything up and put it back together and it cured it, it must have just had a bad or dirty connection and it cost nowt to fix.

So what tends to happen is that I unlock the car, get in and close the door. The window then does one of several things:

It will close normally most of the time
It might not close for a few seconds and then will close spontaneously
It will not close until I drive the car away
It might even go up and down a couple of times
The passenger side might join in, in time, occasionally - without the door being touched.

The door microswitch seems to work ok but if I try again I might get a different answer.
