986 top relay interference with door window operation


Recommended Posts

After doing some research, I cannot find a clear solution to this problem.  I have a 1997 Boxster which has a problem with the  window controls.  

 

If I remove the convertible top relay (double relay), both door windows operate as expected (proper drop when door is opened, auto drop when you press the window control, and full motion up and down). 

 

When I insert the top relay (even with the top latch closed), both windows drop the standard 3 inches and the driver’s window will only go down.  Once the driver’s window goes all the way down, it will not go up until I remove the top relay.

 

Any thoughts from the community?

 

thanks,

 

jason

Hi, I had the same problem as you did, after re-synchronising my convertible top. Windows would only go down. The top was in closed position (top up) and the light in the dash was turned off. Windows would not go up. I tried lowering the top fully, then all the way up again. This seemed to fix it for me, so I believe it was a mere bug. I never tried pulling the convertible top relay though.

 

Good luck!
