Power window puzzle

Recommended Posts

Hi, a new puzzle developed after having the battery disconnected. The drivers window will retract a bit when the door release is pulled, but then extends to the "sealed" position as soon as the door latch is released. Then, when the door is shut again, the glass won't close properly and the door stays slightly ajar. I've disconnected the battery to give everything a fresh start, I've tried "retraining" the window, and tried everything in the owners manual. Anyone had anything like this? Peter 2001 Porsche TT

Peter, you might try resetting the windows. I believe this is done by lowering the window all of the way and holding the button down in this position for like 5 seconds (it might be raising it and holding it for 5 seconds?)

I've tried that, with no joy. The passenger side operates "normally". The glass descends a bit when the door latch is pulled, but remains slightly "down" until the door is reclosed, then it closes up and seals. The driver door pulls down when the latch is operated but immediately goes full up as soon as the latch is released and stays up as the door is pulled shut causing the door to remain ajar. Its as if the little german window gnome has gone on vacation on the drivers side. Peter

I believe there is a switch in the door that is known to go bad. that is attached to the backside of the handle. Sorry I don't have any experience personally with it, but just passing on what I have read.

I've got a similar problem. Passenger window does not retract when door is opened or when door is closed. It stays in full up position. Driver's door works properly. Is there a switch actuated by the door lever? If so, what's the cure?

On each door there is a microswitch that is tripped when the outside door handle is pulled and another microswitch that is tripped when the inside door handle is pulled. If the problem is only as you describe it, i.e., that if happens when you pull on the outside door handle, try to pull on the inside door handle and see if you get a different result. That could help you narrow it down.
