I'm having an interesting problem with my windows, I figure someone on here has had something similar or has an idea on what to check next as I have no idea
Symptom: When the car experiences vibration and BOTH of the window switch boxes are plugged in, the driver's side window rolls itself down, and the passenger side window rolls itself halfway down. You can hear both window motors and switch boxes clicking like crazy the whole time. When the car is stationary the windows work 100%, unless I hit the car interior (door panels, dash, steering wheel, anything hard), then the windows roll down as described.
It seems like the window motors are repeatedly getting a signal to roll down as something vibrates within the car.
Both of the door lock actuators are bad, I have the parts for the DIY fix but installation is pointless since I have no key fob and can't keep the switch box plugged in without the windows rolling down.
What I've tried:
-Replaced drivers side switch box, no change
-Completely disassembled both doors (added soundproofing as well
) hoping to find a short, found nothing.
Since the issue only occurs while driving I can't exactly get a multimeter and start testing wires....
I'm not really expecting a response but worth a try. I really appreciate any and all input on this as I don't have the cash to go to a dealer/specialist and start replacing parts ***** nilly to fix something like windows/power locks.
Instead I spent all my car budget on the full Whiteline bushings kit and new mounts
