Question about 2001 Porsche 911 Carrera

Window doesn't drop down for door to open on 911 Cab

When the passenger door is opened, the window doesn't drop down as it should to clear the cab top roof line. I now have the same issue. Was told that it is a common problem that can occur and would be covered under my warranty (I bought from a dealer). Apparently it is an actuator that drops the window everytime the door is opened. Obviously this ocurs thousands of times over the years till the component stops working. Obviously it would normally stop for the driver's door first. Fit a new actuator and you are back up and running I am told.

There should be a sensor on the door handel, so the minute you start pulling the body controll module drops the window through the regulator. an actuator unlocks and locks the door.

2003 ford f-150 crew cab power window went down but will not come up i hear a clicking noise in fuse panel


Window fuse's and relay's may be up under driver or passenger side dash or behind glove box, under the hood and even under the seats, and finally on the ends of the dash. All passenger power windows and locks are controlled thru and get power from the master control switch on the drivers door.

Drivers door window gets used the most so it could be the motor, window switch, relay or fuse.
Could also be a broken wire in the rubber boot going from the door to the body. You will have to eliminate each till you find the culprit. Check that all switches return to neutral when released.
The motor and the relay are the most likely to cause this problem. Try swapping the relay with a working window relay. If it still doesn't work, remove the door panel and remove the window motor.
Turn the motor shaft in both directions by hand several turns. Then plug the motor in and see if the switch will now run the motor. Sometimes that's all it takes to get it working again. I have had to do this with brand new motors. If voltage is not present at the motor connector, either a bad switch or a broken wire exists. Make sure to check for voltage coming to that windows switch. Actually, GM use's a circuit breaker type relay for each window and one fuse for all the circuit breakers.

Try this....
Open the door, turn the key to the ON position without starting the engine and everything that makes noise is off. Lean down placing your ears close to the bottom center of the door or at the speaker grill. Press the window switch UP and DOWN. Listen for the window motor. If heard the drive is damaged. If not heard, turn key off and locate and replace the relay with one of the other window relays. Check window again. If it works now, get a new relay. More often than not, removing the motor and turning it by hand will get it working good as new. I have had to do that with Brand New motors! So try it.
If all has failed, with the door panel still off, check for voltage at the motor connector when pushing the window switch. No voltage means its the switch, especially if its a auto down or up switch.

The driver door power window is not working. How do I repair this?


Open door panel and check window motor connection. You will probably have to replace window motor. You could try checking fuses, but if the passenger's side is working then that is not the problem.

Porsche 2002 carerra cab driver side window does not go down


Obvious stuff. The key has to be in the ON position. Fuses should be located on left side near kick panel it might be third row all the way left side, 30 amp fuse. Will the window operate if you open the door a little? Maybe getting stuck in door seal. Top up or down it won't work?
After that you have to get in to the door and see if motor still good or if wiring is good.

2003 F250 Power Windows won't work


check fuses 35 & 41 (10 amp, red).
it also shows an accesory delay relay in the fuse panel.
And fuse 601? 30 amp.

make sure you don't have lock-out on driver switch panel activated.

Power Window System
Features and Operation
NOTE: The accessory delay feature will allow power window operation up to 10 minutes after the ignition is off or until a door is opened.
If equipped with power windows, the window control switch (14529):
  • will operate the power windows only when the ignition switch is in the RUN or ACC position.
  • is located on each front door trim panel, and Crew Cab and Excursion rear door trim panel.
  • may be used to raise or lower the driver side, passenger side and rear windows from the LF control on the driver side, or the passenger window from the passenger switch.
  • includes a one-touch down (OTD) feature for the driver door window.
  • can partially lower the driver side window when the LF window control switch is depressed half way (first detent).
  • will completely lower the driver side window when the LF window control switch is fully depressed and then released (second detent).
Power Window System — Modes of Operation
There are two modes of operation for the power window system.
Manual Mode
When the LH window control switch is pressed to the first down position, the window will move down until one of the following conditions are met:
  • The LH window control switch is no longer in the first down position.
  • The LH window control switch is pushed to the OTD position, causing the windows to enter auto mode.
Auto Mode
Auto mode provides the OTD feature. The OTD feature is activated when the LH window control switch, for the LH window, is pressed to the second down position.
Auto mode will be terminated when any of the following conditions are met:
  • The LH window control switch is pushed to the UP position.
  • The LH window control switch is released (OFF position) and then moved to the DOWN position (first detent) or OTD position (second detent).
  • Note: Delayed accessory feature must be active.
The OTD feature is controlled by the window control switch.

---------------------------------------------------------
Condition Possible Sources Action
  • All power windows are inoperative
  • Fuse(s).
  • Circuitry.
  • LF window control switch.
  • Accessory delay relay.

2003 F-150 4X4 with extended cab: while driving, the engine sputters at about 45-55 mph. It acts as if the fuel/air mix is not right? Also, the power window on the passenger side will not roll up.


here is a trick to get the window back up. open the door with the key on. hold the switch in the up position and slam the door shut while holding the switch inthe up position this should jar the motor enough to get the window up. but you are going to need a new window motor eventually if this trick works for you
Please rate me
Thank you
