    Spyder window won't go down, but will go up. Drops fine with the conv top?

    Odd problem here!

    Spyder passenger window won't go down, but will go up with the controls. Dropping conv top lowers it just fine. On spyders all the windows go down or retract when you start to open the top.

    I have changed out both control switches on the drivers and passengers with known good units. Also I know the motor works great since it will lower with the top and raise with the switch. Always been like this since I've owned it and it's time to fix it.

    Ideas?

    Have you checked or traced the wiring for power that goes into the control units?? Possible one broke or came loose somewhere along the line... I know my drivers door on my car nothing lights up. I have aftermarket speakers. But I suspect they broke a wire when they installed them. Cause it shows power at the fuse box by the door. So I'm pulling apart my door to see what I can find.

    If I was you I might start by doing that.. or maybe a loose ground? I hate electrical issues so much lol... Wish I could help more man

    I looked at your post on 3SI earlier, and then did a little digging. I was hoping the Spyder manual that is available at our site had the wiring differences from stock to Spyder for the windows...I could NOT find it.

    I am going to guess that the stock wiring from the ETACS unit to the passenger side window relay is somehow compromised....

    I have a related issue, but not as severe. My passenger window will not operate for the 30 second window after the key is turned off (drivers does). It's not a HUGE deal to me, so I never traced it.

    The CD manual that I looked at this morning confused me as part of the wiring for one relay seemed missing.... (different from 94 to 95)....

    I wish I could offer more, and I will continue to investigate....
