Windows don't close fully after raising/lowering convertible top

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I've noticed that when lowering or raising the convertible top, the windows drop a couple of inches (as they should), but then don't automatically re-close once the top has finished moving.

I need to "manually" press the electric window buttons to get them to close.

I'm pretty sure they should close automatically (they do on my friend's 996 cab).

Anyone know what could be causing the problem?

Cheers

Greg

Greg:

You didn't say what year 986 you are talking about.

On my '97, the windows drop when unlatching the top latch, but they don't automatically go back up after the top has completed its cycle.

Sorry - it's a 1999 2.5 with a manual gearbox (not sure if the last bit is relevant for any microswitches etc..)

My 98 Tip's windows do not come up after the top goes up or down.

My 99 does not return either.

Sorry folks, I'm being a muppet.

It's a case of RTFM: Page 80 says "close windows with the rocker switch".

Hello All,

I have a '99 that drops the windows down slightly when the top is lowered but you Cannot raise them All the way back up with the top down. They can be raise All the way with the top Up? Is this normal or a microswitch problem?

Thanks

can anyone tell me if they ever got an answer on this topic. I have a 2000 Porsche boxster that does the same thing the windows lower as they should when opening the convertible top but do not completely shut when closing the convertible top. Thanks
