Window operation with key in door

Recommended Posts

I think that when I raise the top on my '04 C2 Cab using the key in the door, at the conclusion of the top locking process I should be able to hold the key in position and raise the windows.  Right?  Mine won't do that, though everything else about the top and window operation functions as it should.


Where should I start to troubleshoot this?

It would be really convenient to be able to exit the car with the top down and close it up completely while standing at the door.  I would like to make it functional if I can figure out where to start.  I suspect it could be something in the door lock itself, or maybe in the top latch or even the dash button area.....?????

Do the windows go up when you hold the close side of the switch on the dash?  If not, you probably have a micro switch somewhere that isn’t indicating that the top is completely closed. Although in this situation I was under the impression that the top would open back up into the “maintenance” position.


If the windows do go up when you use the inside dash control, I have no idea why they don’t using the key in the door lock.  I guess just try holding the key in the lock position for 10 to 20 seconds more...
