Hello, I'm a new boxter owner. While driving my interior lights come on over some bumps. I noticed that my window moves slightly up and down as well. Like locking/unlocking car. Sometimes remote will not lock car unless I open and close door a couple times. Does anyone know what part could be doing this? Need replaced or possibly a fix? Thank you!
After doing some research, I cannot find a clear solution to this problem. I have a 1997 Boxster which has a problem with the window controls.
If I remove the convertible top relay (double relay), both door windows operate as expected (proper drop when door is opened, auto drop when you press the window control, and full motion up and down).
When I insert the top relay (even with the top latch closed), both windows drop the standard 3 inches and the driver’s window will only go down. Once the driver’s window goes all the way down, it will not go up until I remove the top relay.
Any thoughts from the community?

All of a sudden my passenger side door window will not go down all the way. It WAS working fine, no noise, and it drops a bit when I open the door and comes back up when I close the door...as it should. But all of a sudden will not go down all the way. Otherwise it works fine: Up and down, just it will only go down until it reaches the last inch or inch and a half, then stops as normal. The windows also work as they should when raising or lowering the top, but of course that pass-side window stops at the last inch or so.
So, where should I look, and in what order?

I'm having electrical issues with my 2000 Boxster S.
My windows drop when the doors are opened, but they do not respond to the window controls. They do not come down when the Convertible top handle is pulled.
The doors do not lock or unlock with the console button or the remote. I can only lock the driver door.
The defrost button does not respond.
I replaced the C3 and D1 fuses even though they looked and tested good.
I'm getting 13 volts (when the car is on) at the C3 and D1 positions.
I pulled the console and tested voltage to the switches and couldn't find any voltage between any two of the many wires going to each switch.
I replaced the module under the driver seat with a new one from Suncoast Porsche and had my local dealer reprogram the new one from the old one's data. The only difference is that my convertible top started working soon after that.
I read in other postings about SPDT relays that are just above the fuses, but I can't find any information about which relay would be affecting these components.
Any ideas on next steps?
The front drivers side window on my 2001 Carrera 4 Cabrio lowers about 1/3 of the way by its self when ever a raise it all the way up. Is this a micro switch, motor or a window regulator problem?
