Is it possible to change the express windows to normal finger on switch movement? They drive me nuts. I noticed that after you turn off the car, the windows are in the manual mode.

I have a 04 C2.

Thanks,

I don't think so. I have been told the one-touch is a function of the control unit under the seat and that the setting cannot be changed.

There is one way to get "half" of what you want.

There is a 12v. input to the front window motors on 996s which PAG calls "RELEASE TAP UP" (BLACK wire). It's supplied from fuse B6. You can see how it works by pulling that fuse. The "auto-up" feature will be disabled. The "auto-down" feature is retained. I tried it on my '99 996 Coupe and every other function affecting window operation that I could think of, seemed undisturbed. Don't know about a Cab. However, the problem is... Fuse B6 also supplies voltage for the 996 TURN SIGNALS. So, leaving the B6 fuse out, renders the signals inoperative!

To perform a mod. on the black wires to get around the problem, would involve getting into your wiring somewhat, probably done easiest at the door hinge electrical connectors.

One thing I didn't have time to experiment with, is the amount of force provided when you "manual-up" the window. I assume it will be maximum force and may not reverse when it encounters an obstruction, as it does when the "auto-up" feature is functioning.

If what you mean by manual mode is that the window only moves when you are pressing the button then as long as you do not just tap the button the windows will operate in manual mode i.e. press and hold the button until the window moves as much as you want then release the button. At least that is true in my 2002. It may not be true in a 2004.
