Window Drop Switch

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hi All, Some weird stuff going on with the window drop when getting in and out of the car. 99 boxster base. The right side seems fine. It seems it only half works. Heres what's going on:

Open door from inside get out, shut the door it works(only one time)

Open and shut door repeatedly from the inside without getting out it works

Open door from outside and shut it from outside(without getting in the car) it fails

It seems I only have 1 chance to shut the door from the outside after I get out of the car.

I know there are 3 micros 1. inside door handle 2.outside door handle 3.door open/closed sensor.

The least expensive would be the open/closed sensor PN# 996-613-125-00 is this the one I need to replace. Where is it? Tried to find peering into the door with panel removed of course.

The roof latch appears to work fine. 

Thanks Vince

There is a small circuit board inside the door latch mechanism that after repeated closing results in a solder joint breaking causing intermittent faults. With some online research and some tinkering it is possible to break open the mechanism and resolder it. 

Saves a lot of money as the mechanism is expensive.
