Window Roll-Up issue... help please

So, recently changed domelight/latch housing and top works fine, but windows won’t roll up when top is closed.

If I open the top completely windows roll up no problem, but the minute I close the top again windows go down 2” and won’t go up again.

???

Yes. It would be a good place to start since the problem arose after your work there.

The car thinks the latch is still open. Common issue.

Yeah, I realized after taking apart again that I only had one microswitch on a newer version that's apparently for a 2000-2004 986... Order new part from dealer, now waiting...


Thanks again
