My car was parked in a hotel lot for two days in Rehoboth, DE. There was a lot of rain! When I checked out, the windows behaved erratically. They would down, but not up. Then up but not down. Eventually, both windows working stopped halfway up. The switches did nothing! I drove home (about 3 hours) with the windows halfway open. During the drive, I occasionally checked and both windows remained inoperative the whoIe time.When I got home, I checked the fuses and both fuses were OK. After a night in my garage, the driver's window worked perfectly! The passenger window lowered correctly but inched upward, on it's own, a step at a time until it was fully closed. Both windows lowered correctly when the top latch was released.

A day later, both windows were operating but the passenger window squeaked when going down.

Several days later, I parked on a city street to attend Baltimore's Artscape festival. It was hot. When I returned to the car, the external temp guage showed 100 degrees! I opened the windows and started the aIr conditioner at full blast. Then the driver side window would not close. The switch was dead. I drove home (about 15 mins.) with the window open. That night, I checked the window again and it worked perfectly!

I can understand (but not excuse) water interfering with the electrics. Doesn't it rain in Germany? But why, when everything was obviously dry (two days and 100 degree heat) would the problem occur again?
