I know... I know... Just search, but I don't know where to start.

 

Two years ago, I researched and trouble-shot my non-functioning top and got it to work by replacing the the sensor/switch at the top of the windshield. Everything worked perfectly until I went to put the top down today. Turned the car on, hand brake on, undid the clamp, the windows came down half-way, I pushed the top down button, and nothing happened. I played with the handbrake, turned the car off and on, and still nothing. the windows would not go up, even with the clamp reset, so I tried putting them all the way down and back up again. the passenger side went down, but would not come back up at all. the driver's window went down, but would only come back up to the point where the windows automatically lower to when the clamp is opened. Very frustrated.

 

Any help on where to begin would be greatly appreciated. My car is a 1999 Boxster, 2.5, manual transmission.

Thanks,

Rob

Start with the fuse -- D3 should 30A.

Remove it and test the fuse with an ohm meter.

 

D3 is in the fuse box by the drivers left leg. D3 is 4th row down and 3rd fuse from the left.

Thanks, Loren. I will check it out as soon as I can.

The fuse seems to be okay. The windows will go up if the top is clamped shut, so that says to me that the micro switch is okay. (correct?). Is there something else that you would suggest? Thanks.
