Hi, my name is XXXXX XXXXX kind of problems are you having?
Customer: replied 4 years ago.

Tim,

 

The passenger side window has been acting wacky for a while. When I lower the window and then raise it, it will go back down about a third of the way. Also, those windows also have an automatic lowering mechanism when you open the door so when you close the door, the window raises automatically to create the seal. The passenger side has stopped doing that. The drivers side has decided to work only when it wants to. If it is stuck in the up position, I can give it a wack while engaging the switch and it will go down. As long as I don't let it go all the way down, it will go back up with no problem. If it goes all the way down, same procedure is done, I just give it a little wack in another spot on the panel. I have already replaced the relay switch and that didn't fix the problems. I just have a hard time believing both motors have gone bad. I have heard those windows can get out of sync. Can I fix this myself?

In the directions you gave me, when raising and lowering the windows in the various steps it is imperative not to use the auto open part of the switch. Correct? There is a fine line there on that function of the switch. If I screw up, then just start over and repeat the steps? Also, I contacted the dealership and he gave me some schpill about the 350Z having to be put on a computer to resync the windows. Was he just feeding me a load of BS to get another $125.00 out of me?
Expert:  Tim Mohr replied 4 years ago.
you dont need a computer to sync these, yes it is imperitive that the auto function not be used, just push the button enough to pu the window dowwn, if you accidently trigger the auto, just start all over,Tim

Thanks Tim. I will give it a try. You have been a great help. Seems like I have already wasted $262.00 on the relay switch which is a dealer only part and can't be returned. Hopefully this will cure the ills.

anytime my friend, let me know if you need anymore help,Tim
