Erratic Operation of Power Windows on Porsche Boxster

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.

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
