  1. I found the post. Thank you. Triumph: The 4" window drop down that occurs when you unlatch the top is not as sensitive a drop (because of the 4" distance) as the 1/2" drop that is supposed to occur when you pull on either the outside or the inside door handle. When your window regulator cable stretches (or gets frayed) a little, while the motor may actuate and turn the window regulator gear, the slack in the cable tightens up, but by that time the gear is no longer turning and the window itself has not yet started moving. There is a guy on 986forum who has come up with what looks

  3. I had the same issues on my 02 S. I took the immbolilizer out from under the drivers seat. You can open it up if you are careful. My board was corroded in spots. I cleaned it with acetone (finger nail polish remover) and it has worked fine since.
  4. Must be a virus going around, on 8/9, I began having the same issue. However, both windows go down when I unlatch the top. The driver's window just won't work with the door handle.
  5. If the '97 has an immobilizer (under the drivers seat) try checking it. My '02 wouldn't start but had dash lights radio etc. Took out the immobilizer and open it up and there was some corrosion (salt air). Cleaned it with some alcohol and it started.
