Window and Sun roof questions

Recommended Posts

:eek: I think I have a ghost living in my car. . . Tee hee hee

1. When closing the moon roof, on occasion it will close all the way and then suddenly open back up again 1/4 of the way for no reason? Nothing is blocking it and the track is clean... Any thoughts?

2. Also wierd, when my fiancee closes the passenger side door, sometimes the window rolls down 1/4 of the way for no know reason? She has great respect for the P-car and dson't slam the door either...

Any thoughts? :help:

The sunroof does the same on my car (Ferry's Ghost). I have to re-train it about once a year. Try the same on the windows.

If you had other electrical faults I'd start looking at the grounds and perhaps even an ignition switch.

My GTI has a "pinch protection" feature that will reverse the window/sunroof motor if you place your hand in the way. Perhaps P-cars have the same (haven't tested on my Boxster's windows), and something is inadvertently triggering resistance (such as wind while driving or lack of track lubrication for the sunroof, and closing the door while the window is going up for the door). I like the "ghost of Ferry" explanation, but where the hell was he when my oil separator failed? ;)
