Windows won't roll up.

New boxster owner here - just noticed that the windows won't roll up.

The windows work when opening the door handle or opening the top, but not by the console switch.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Steve

The fuses are good - windows work when opening the door handle or opening the top, but not by the console switch, I was thinking it might be a relay or something?

Anyone else?

Did you check the switch for continuity?

Not a switch issue - both switches are doing it.................I guess it's a trip to the dealer.

Convertible top micro switch not sensing the top is in the up position or the latch is not engaging the switch?

Are you saying the windows will fully retract and extend when the top is open and when the doors are open?

When you unhook the top fastening mechanism (under the rear view mirror) the windows roll down about 1/4 way - This is normal

Also when you grab the door handle, windows drop down about 1/2" - This is normal..........

Now when you have the top completely down. Do the windows work?

What I am trying to say is the circuit goes thru a latch switch that tells the window when it can and cannot roll up or down depending on top position.

understand where I am coming from?

Just trying to eliminate one of the potential issues where the problem may be.
