Driver's Window Going Up and Dowm

Recommended Posts

Guys,

'98 Boxster 5 speed, 111,000 miles.

Cold morning here in Michigan, however I drive my car year round. When I got in the car this morning and started it, the driver's window was going up and down about a quarter of an inch and the door lights were on. The only way to get it to stop was by pressing the window switch up. The window would stop for a bit before going again, but the door lights never went off. When I got to my destination, the window stopped but the door lights stayed on so I removed the bulbs.

On top of that the doors will not lock.

I am guessing the door light switch but want to hear from others who may have seen this before.

Thanks,

Normally, the window drops about a 1/4 inch when one pulls on either the outer or inner door handle and the door unlatches itself from the locking anchor on the door frame. IIRC cprrectly, the door lights come on at the same time. So my guess is that you have a problem with the door latching mechanism. Try lubricating the it as a first step. If that doesn't do the trick, then it could be a sensor problem in the door latch itself.

Thanks T,

I will do that. Another suggestion I received was to replace the electrical portion of the ignition switch as it causes crazy electrical problems as well. I had another odd problem with the car a few years back and the new switch solved it.
