Windows won't raise

New issue, both widows won't go up. Can hear the switched clicking in the doors to wind down but not up.

Have checked fuses & all ok.

Any other idea's?

Is the top light on in the cluster, sometimes a malfunctioning top will cause this. In my car I pulled the double relay from the fuse box and the windows work fine. (My top is converted to manual)

The 986 headlight housing lenses burn real easy so you have to be careful what bulbs you put in them, especially LED as they can create a ton of heat

Thanks I'll try removing the relay.

I thought LED's were much cooler running than the conventional halogen globes.

A common misconception. The "lamp" (not a lamp with LED, but it's a term which is easily understood) runs cooler, but the chip and driver can generate extreme heat.

They were working fine. When we got home from a drive the windows just won't go up
