Erratic Operation of Power Windows on Porsche Boxster

Problem Description and Possible Solution

The power windows not lowering when the Cabriolet top latch and/or door handle is operated or lowering unexpectedly while driving can be caused by a failing Cabriolet top or door handle micro switch. Diagnoses will be required to determine which switch is at fault and will require replacement.

windows go down. will not go back up. only half way when I put top back up.
car went to body shop for hail damage. Now the windows do not open slighly when door handled opens.
Power window won't lower.
Windows lower halfway as while driving, as if convertible top has been engaged (but has not), and won't go back up!
Window in passenger side only goes down 1/2 an inch. Prior to this happening it was making funny noises.
When i undo the convertible top latch windows wont do down i replaced the switch when i latch the latch the windows go up. top isnt going down or up
no drivers window movement
window does not return to fully closed position when door is closed. Window regulator replacement $846
Top handle latch popped open while driving about 60 mp,now windows do not lower when unlatching top.h.No warning
windows do not let down when I let top down, but when driving the windows roll down on there own. driver door will not open from inside or out. my automatic key lock do not work.
window lowers and then rises once door on drivers side opens. Thus when the door closes the window is still in the fully extended position coliding with the door frame.
Both doors have experienced multiple relay replacements, and the whole mechanism once on the drivers door. Door lockin mechanis wear area is made of plastic and eventually wears through and binds
