Both windows go down by themselves after shutting car off

Do they go down all the way, or like about an 8 inch drop? Do the windows drop slightly when you pull the door handle?  My car has done this on the drivers side window.  Lock it and walk away. Come back to the car and the window had dropped about 8 inches.  I did replace the window regulator and the entire door latch mechanism w/microswitches with OE Porsche parts.  The car has never done the window drop again.  It is strange that both windows are doing it since there is no connection between the windows that would make them both drop. I would also give a thought to the window switches in the center console.

How is your battery voltage? A lot of strange gremlins happen when the battery voltage is low.  Also strange gremlins when the electrical part of the ignition switch starts to go bad.  When you say the doors no longer lock...is that with the remote or putting the key in the door latch?  Do the doors lock if you use the console switch?

      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.

      Hi all,
      Over the past 6 months I have now broken 3 convertible top transmission cables (i.e. motor-to-transmission p/n 986 561 717 03).  This is after not breaking any of these cables for the first 19 years of the life of the car.  I believe what is happening is that the motor is being allowed to run too far past the fully open and closed positions (seems most likely the top-closed position as the breaks have occurred 3 of 3 times when the top is closed or closing).   After reading many of the posts about the microswitches that control the power to the convertible top motor, I believe this is likely my root cause.  However, I am unclear which switches I need to check for my model year (2000).  I understand that I have the later-version transmissions which have a switch inside the transmission case and I confirm that this is the model that I have.  I thought this was the switch that controlled power to the motor and to turn off the dash light. But I am not sure if I also have the switch in the B pillar (986 613 767 01) and/or the switch in the roof (986 613 101 02), or if/how these switches control power to the convertible top motor.
       
      Many thanks for any guidance you can provide!

      Search unsuccessful. Therefore I ask.  Upon lowering top, windows drop 4 inches. Then will not go back up.  Windows will go down but will not return up at all. Put top up and they work fine. I want windows to go all the way up when top down on cool days and nights

      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.

      So, in the process of getting ready for the summer at NE, I tried two months ago to open my convertible (C4-99). The convertible stuck at 2/3 and didn't go back. I got the car to my indie, stayed there for two weeks and got it back un-repaired. He told me that he tried everything, did recalibration and still, he couldn't fix it. I gone to the dealership too, paid $540 for diagnosis and they told me that they have to replace latch and/or module and since I'm loosing some oil from the cylinders, both cylinders. They quoted me $5400. I hugged them and left :)
       
      Now, the last 2 weeks:
      Durametric comes up with error 16 (unknown error - latest version of the software)
      In the beginning, when I tried to calibrate with durametric, it was pulling the top back and then it was timing out but without any warning light on the dash. After this was done the only way to close the convertible was manual. This happened more than 10 times during my tries. Now, durametric doesn't do anything at all, I just get the 'working' icon and nothing happens.
      I follow the workshop manual and I changed the following with no changes on behavior:
      Module
      Top latch
       
      Still nothing. To add on this, when it stops I hear a 'click-click' sound from the back. The sound is from the module itself, but as I said, I replaced the module and nothing changed.
      The clam shell opens and closes/locks fine. I don't get a warning light when I'm closing the convertible. I'm getting a warning light only when it stuck. All windows are going up and down.
      The hydraulic oil is always full. 
      Any ideas or suggestions are strongly appreciated.
