With the door open lift the end of the door up and down and check the play in the hinges. Also check for rust at the hinge area.

Why doesn't the radio shut off even when key is removed and driver door is opened?


My Guess is that radio is not the original one. They didn't connect the right wire that goes to your ignition switch. (acc power on) Hope that helps.

"automatic" window on my 2005 mustang does not


So when it doesn't seal that means the tracks the window have been falling out typically. The door panel needs to come off to inspect the tracks. And if your driver side power window doesn't work, that typically means a seperate problem located in the switch itself. It could also be the wires, so you can run a seperate wire to test the switch by running it directly to the window motor, and pressing the switch down. This can easily be done while the door panel is off so you can hit two problems at the same time.

You don't find much with the door jamb switches any longer. Its all done inside the door with the switches being on the door latch.
the radio should still be able to be turned off manualy ;)

the inside door handle is probably broken. the cable may have popped out but usually its because the clips on the inside door handle break off. luckily you can just replace the handle and not have to get a whole new door panel

Doors freeze up wont shut close after opening interior light then stays on


Look at the end of the door where the latch is located. The latch may have flipped to the closed possition when the door was open.There is a U shaped piece that when the door hits the post on the door jam it flips up to hold the door shut.If you can get the passinger door open you can see what it looks like in the open position. If this is the problem just hold the door handle like you are opening the door and with a srew driver or even your finger you can push than U piece back down.To keep your door from freezing shut try putting sone silicone spray on a paper towl and wiping it on the rubber door seal.Spray a little on the door latch as well.

Venture van power door problem


It sounds as though one of the proximity sensors is faulty. Also try giving the tracks for the door a good shot of white spray lithium grease. The door may be binding enough so that the emergency reverse is kicking in.

2002 Boxster driver side window will not raise. Had a plastic cupholder hanging on side of window channel for years with no trouble. But that could ahve been the culprit today. Can hear the motor try. Then...


It sounds like you have a bad window regulator. This is the mechansm that the motor is bolted to that raises and lowers the window. Removing the door panel is difficult and is really a job for a porsche mechanic. Its easily damaged and there is the side air bag to deal with. You'll need to disconnect the battery and let the car sit for a couple of hours to discharge the side air bag capacitor before starting work, so you'll need the radio code to reactivate your radio. The panel is attached to the door with screws behind the door handle and inside the door pocket. It needs to be disassembled as it is removed. Behind it is a door air seal held in place by snap fasteners. Each of these has to be carefully pried out to remove the door seal and expose the window mechanism.
Its time-consuming and not something you want to do if you don't have replacement parts on hand.
After you have got it apart, you'll want to disconnect the air bag before you connect the battery up to test the window operation and see what is wrong. Don't forget to disconnect the battery again before reconnecting the side air bag.
