Question about 2000 Porsche 911 Carrera

1 Answer

Window returns to high position, preventing door closing properly

When opening door the window retracts to clear the top ledge.  When the handle is released the window goes back up preventing the door from closing properly.
Sometimes, if you hold the handle in the open position for more than 4 seconds, the window works properly.  If you close the door, the window hits the ledge, then retracts, allowing the door to close properly.
Does this have anything to do with the battery needing to be charged after sitting for a 10 day period.  Coincidently, the problem started after the battery needed charging.

I have a 02 Carrera and had the problem of the window remaining too high and preventing closing. i took the car to the dealer and they did something with the door handle mechanism, like unscrewing it and putting it back in place, which fixed the problem, no charge i think. i also had a bad starter switch and light switch on the front panel. when these were changed, my car now starts well and all lights work in the instrument cluster, which was a problem before.

2008 pontiac g6 drivers window, when handle is lifted the window does not drop the inch or so that it should.


The window indexing feature is used to lower the driver and passenger power windows approximately 4 mm when the door is opened. This is necessary to allow the top edge of the window to clear the window weather-strip. This feature will also raise the window to the fully seated position once the door is closed.
Is just the driver door not working ?
Observe the operation of the driver window and front passenger window while opening and closing their respective doors. The windows should index DOWN and UP when the doors are opened and closed.
? If either window does not index UP or DOWN, refer to Window Index Feature Malfunction.

Window Index Feature Malfunction
Ignition ON, observe the scan tool Driver Door Ajar Sw and Door Ajar Switch parameters while opening and closing the driver and passenger doors, the parameter should change from Door Closed to Door Ajar.
? If the parameter does not change when opening and closing the doors, refer to Door Ajar Indicator Malfunction .
Ignition OFF, disconnect the harness connector at the appropriate window motor.
Ignition ON, with the door closed, test for greater than 10 volts between the signal circuit terminal 5 and ground.
? If less than the specified range, test the signal circuit for a short to ground or an open/high resistance. If the circuit tests normal, replace the BCM.
With the door open, test for less than 1 volt between the signal circuit terminal 5 and ground.
? If greater than the specified range, test the signal circuit for a short to voltage. If the circuit tests normal, replace the BCM.
If all circuits test normal, replace the window motor.

Your best bet mite be to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop (GM dealer )

How do I take off the door panel to replace a broken interior door handle


Door handles are fairly easy to replace, you may even be able to do it without removing the door panel. Look closely at the door handle, you will see a Philips head screw, remove this. Gently remove the faceplate to the handle. Behind the faceplate you will see another Philips head screw, (don't get the two mixed as they are slightly different in size) remove the second screw. Now heres where it gets a little tricky. The handle has to slide forward about a quarter of an inch before it can be tilted out enough to see the clips that retain linkage for the lock and latch, you can't get them mixed up because they are bent in opposit directions. You may need to use a pair of needle nose and a small screwdriver to work the clips up and out of the way so the link rods can be removed. Once you see how they come off it will be easier to replace. After replacing the handle and getting the clips back in place, position the handle back in place being careful to align the 3 slots that will lock it in place, then slide it back into position until you can see the hole for the first screw (which is the last one removed. Replace the screw, just don't tighten it to much, it only screws into plastic. Then work the cover back in place and replace the screw.
If you need to remove the panel, look the door over and find the 6, I think that's how many there are, screw covers, 2 on each end of the door liner and 2 under the door handle. The ones on the otter edge''s of the doors have a little plastic cover (about 1/4 inch in diameter). They pop out with a sharp knife or very small screwdriver. You might want to check along the bottom for additional screws I ma have forgotten. Once all are removed you can pry the door out at the bottomfirst, then gently work the panel back and forth to lift it until it clears the window section. That should do the job at this point. Good luck to you.

Window doesn't retract automatically at the top of the travel to clear the window frame


I have the same problem with my 2006 blue viper, just put the window just so you can open and close the door, and just leave it. Or you can pay 1,600.00 to have them fix it. my car has 6,100 miles on it. it should be a recall most viper do have the same problem with the window. guess what they used the same part in the new viper to, so there will be more of the same problem with the driver side door window. Recall it Dodge!!!!

Rightside interior door handle not opening door


It could mean the rod connecting the handle to the latch has broken. You'll need to remove screws that are by the door handle, arm rest, under door and side of door and then gently pull back on the panel as there will also be retaining clips attached and you don't want to break them. You'll need to lift the door panel upwards in order to get it off the window ledge. and you can access the innards of the door

Rear door won't open


You can get the panel off with the door closed. I just took mine off because of the same problem. The top portion is only connected with some clips inside the panel. Take the screws out of the rear side window first. The panel will pop off if you gently pry with a flatbar. under the panel are three screws. Remove the screws and lift up on the bottom panel. It comes right off. Find the cable that goes to the top latch and pull it. It should release and you can replace the door latch assembly. Mine were both broken and I am in the process of fixing them.
