I have a 2000 Boxster S. I live in a hot, humid area. Recently, my windows started going down by themselves after I park the car. My power locks are not working. I think one of the door locks is malfunctioning. Perhaps it is related to the locks. Any thoughts on how to proceed would be appreciated.
I was checking / fixing fuses, pulling them and putting new that kind of stuff and now my windows do not open and the front light are always on! The fuses are ok but I am wondering if by playing around maybe i messed up a relay or something! I tried to fix the fuses to what they should be, in the past the car ( used ) had fuses too big for what the chart called for, so for example i replaced a 30 for a 10 if a 10 was the one needed etc.
I've searched the forums, and I haven't found a similar issue...
I have a 2004 Targa and the windows have been working great up until the last couple of weeks. Now when I have the passenger window down and I press the switch for it to go back up, it'll get about half way up, pause, and then put itself back down. After a couple of tries I can manage to get it to go all the way back up by holding the switch down. I've tried resetting the limits, but that didn't help. The driver's side window works great.
When doing a convertible top calibration using piwis on my 03 996, it gets stuck after closing the windows. I hear relays clicking in the doors constantly after the windows fully close. Then I get an operation timeout error. In normal operation windows work fine, they close and open with one click, and then I hear relay clicking one time after reaching max/min position. Any idea what might be an issue here? Also, should the calibration start with windows going up and not down? Also, when I trigger windows to go up/down using drive links in piwis, they work fine, with relays clicking once when operation finishes.
My cabriolet came with what I'm calling shark's teeth. When the top is down the rear side windows are always up and are locked that way (unless I press the roof receiver microswitch). When the top is up you can press the rear window up switch the rear window will go down. When you press the rear window down switch the rear window will go up. The front windows operate normally.
I tried reversing the wiring for the up and down functions. After swapping two pair of wires for each window the windows go down and up correctly when pressing the switch and go down and up correctly when raising and lowering the top. However, when I go to start the car with the top up and the windows up the car lowers the rear windows about an inch. I think the logic is to try to raise them to make sure that they are closed (at least that's my theory).
Next, when looking at regulators online I noticed that my motors had different part numbers. So I put the wiring back to normal and swapped in new motors (including built-in control boards that looked correct for my car). No difference.
At this point I am stumped. I don't know if there is anything in the PST settings that could reverse the operation of the windows but it seems unlikely. Perhaps I need to keep the wiring reversed and there is a PST setting that impacts starting window location?
Thanks. Any insights are appreciated.
