Weird problems....door and window pre-ignition.

OK....car has randomly started acting odd with the windows and door shutting during while off/prior to start.

Started with the passenger door refusing to shut. After some experimentation...using the key fob to lock and un-lock the door fixed things.

Today...the drivers side window adjusts itself UP prior to closing the door, so you can't close it. Playing with the interior door handle or manually rolling the window down a bit 'fixes' things.

Any ideas? Running great other than this randomness.

Sounds like a bad door microswitch, IMO. If the interior lights go out when the window goes back up, then definitely it thinks the door is closed.

Thank you...I will watch for that and also search for door micro switches. Cheers.

Did you figure out whether it was the microswitch or something else?

My passenger door is doing the same thing yours was -- window dip to allow the door to open, but immediately goes back up when the handle is released and before the door is closed.

I'm making an appointment with an indy for other items, but I would want this checked out / fixed as well.
